Pan Am > Pan Am Premiere Review: Buckle Up, Adventure Calls! > Comments Page 2
enjoyed it,but how did the wife know colette slept with her husband, did I miss something?
I agree with the 'surfer dude' comment. The main pilot's hair was way too long for that time period. When Christina Ricci's character gets called back to work, she has fairly long hair. By the time she arrives at the airport (in a matter of an hour or so) it's much shorter. Did she get a haircut along the way? Continuity errors are signs of sloppy production. Mad Men's attention to detail is far superior.
btw, i thought your review was excellent, it was your review that convinced me that i should give this show a chance so i downloaded it to watch today.
I liked that the episode had a lot of small details, like for example it began and ended on the same note. In the opening scene, a little boy is in awe of the Pilots and, the closing scene, a little girl is in awe of the stewardess.
i am glad you liked it, it's just my opinion. see for me it's the other way around, i get attached to characters through story lines and if the plot doesn't suck me in then i get bored. and i hope that i will see more than just glamor and girls as the show goes on, that's why i said that i will give it a couple more eps before quitting.
thought it was awful!! they took brothers and sisters off for this, ugh! I'll watch CSI Miami from now on.
@farsia2010 What you disliked about the premiere was exactly what I did like. It took more time to establish framework than to jump into the foray of the political nature of the time. There will be plenty of time to work that in. However, if I don't care about the characters, I won't care about their aspirations in life, either. I think you will see a lot more than girls on a plane going forward.
With everyone else, yes, there were height and weight limits. My local news had an interview with an actual Pan Am stewardess last night. They also had to retire by the age of 28. They cooked the meals on the flight themselves, sometimes 8 courses for passengers in first class. However, there was no requirement to hold a nursing degree.
Loved the show, as a young girl I wanted to travel and see the world. I think they had a height and weight requirement back then.
once slight problem with this show. back then flight attendents had to also be nurses. i know because my one cousin wanted to be a flight attendent back in the early sixties and she was reject because she was not a nurse.
I was sooooo wanting to like this show. What a dissapointment.
oh and it's completely unrealistic that the the third pilot was Hindu, no way, not in the 60s. i understand the need to be politically correct since all the stewardesses are white but really, it is the 60s, there was no political correctness back than.
oh in addition to everything else, the show didn't touch on any significant subjects that were going on in the 60s, like racial discrimination or any other kind of internal politics and social atmosphere.
whereas the playboy club touched so many things - gangsters, corruption, the gay agenda, sexism, adultery and racial discrimination (via the first chocolate bunny). yes it too was a glamorous show but thanks to the fact that it was dipped into the atmosphere of playboy it managed to be a revealing kind of glamor, glamor that makes all the sins become apparent rather than covered with an unhealthy layer of make-up.
i liked playboy club, it seems more dangerous and dark and i prefer it to Pan Am. i am not sure if i like this show yet. this ep set a great tone and helped us dive into the atmosphere,it's just that the story seems a little too dreamy for me. it lacks a little harshness even in the points where there was danger with the spy on the plain and the saving the prisoners, even the heart break of the pilot lacks real heart break for me.
the show is a little unrealistically glamorous for my taste. but i like some of the characters and will be tuning in next week to give it another try.
I was hoping for "Catch me if you can" but was disappointed
Weak, I was really looking forward to the show, love the concept, but for the big bang pilot it stunk! Stupid sub plots, and the cold war spy stuff was dumb. The males were boring and didn't look like the debonair pilots we are used to, more like surfer dudes.
I give this show a few episodes then it will go the way of other big concept shows that fall short, C-
this episode was everything i expected, nice acting, nice subject lines, oh and the score and soundtracks was so well chosen, just great !
@fortyseven ditto minus the not seeming like the 60's
Love this show.
I enjoyed it very much!! Better than I thought it was going to be
i find playboy club to much more interesting. PAM AM is good also but i just couldnt get interested in the storyline. it was rather boring.
I was bored. It did seem like the 60s. The spy storyline should be good. CGI problems.
