Flipped Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Stars: Will Forte, Kaitlin Olson, Luis Moncada
Flipped follows a couple named Cricket and Jann Melfi, played by Kaitlin Olson and Will Forte, who quit their day jobs to seek fame as small-screen home-renovation superstars. Think Chip and Joanna Gaines, only—and I hate saying this because I enjoy both Olson and Forte—not as charming, and much more forced. After learning about a contest to become Home Renovation Television’s “Next Dynamic Duo,” the Melfis head to the city outskirts with hammers in hand to renovate a random, one-level house. The twist is that while they’re breaking down the home’s walls, they find endless cash where the insulation should be, and of course it turns out that the cartel is involved! Comedy ensues!
While I didn’t get to the whole “dealing with the cartel” part in the two episodes I saw, we see in the trailer that the Melfis use the money to fund their TV dreams, but are caught by a cartel big wig (Broad City’s Arturo Castro), who tells them he now has to kill them—that is, until he sees what they did with his drab stash house. I’m telling you, the things a little feng shui and a few purchases from Pier 1 can do for people!
Maybe Flipped is one of those TV shows that get better with time, and since the first two episodes of the series amounted to about 15 minutes, I’m willing to go with that idea. Plus, it’s got a good cast, with Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria rounding things out.
Can anyone flip a house? Kaitlin Olson and Will Forte prove that, with a little bit of monetary help, anything is possible in “Flipped,” Quibi’s first comedy series. While Quibi promises “Quick Bites and Big Stories,” “Flipped” comes off particularly small and low energy. The cast makes for an enjoyable, quick watch. However, this quick bite wasn’t enough of an appetizer, much less a meal.
It’s clear from the first quick bite that Jann (Will Forte) and Cricket (Kaitlin Olson) Melfi are odd birds. They are both fired from their jobs – a high school drama teacher and hardware store associate, respectively. Dejected and blindsided, the two turn to TV for comfort. More specifically, they watch a show about flipping houses, hosted by a picture-perfect couple meant to recall Chip and Joanna Gaines. “We can do better,” Jann and Cricket think aloud. When they hear of a casting call for the next home renovation hosts, Jann and Cricket jump it on immediately. What’s the one thing that any home renovator needs (besides talent)? Money.
