Pan Am > Pan Am Review: The Dawn of a New Age > Comments Page 2
I really like this show, and the stories are definitely getting more complex and interesting. But the numbers aren't good. It would be a huge hit on a cable network, but for a broadcast network...it most likely won't get picked up for another season. That's sad, because I would watch rather watch this than the 20+ reality shows all over the broadcast networks. All I can do is enjoy the last 2 episodes and keep my fingers crossed.
I'm going to miss this show!!!!
I really do enjoy this show and I hope it makes it!!!
I was cracking up at Kate's pick pocketing. No one was safe. Poor Dean and Colette. They're my favorites.
The forgotten episode "Romance Languages" (which should have preceded the sailors episode two months ago) is airing on February 12 and will really throw the continuity out of the window (that's when Laura took the nude photos), then the final episode that normally would have followed "New Frontiers" will be on February 19.
You definitely can see where the writers would have taken the series if the network had shown some faith in it. But the last couple of episodes have been akin to students about to graduate in a week but still have a couple of thesis papers to write, so they are cramming to get them done.
This was far from a great episode. It wasn't horrible, but there was waaaaay too much crammed into 40 minutes. Five separate stories that had equal weight, and none of them were developed to the point they should have been, which meant no character development at all and little interaction between the six regulars. Each of the regulars had about six to eight minutes of screen time spread across around four scenes, which is ridiculous. Colette has been the most complex and developed character over the course of the series, but the character hadn't been this two-dimensional since the pilot. All of the storylines had enormous potential, and this episode should have taken place over the course of three or four episodes rather than one. It's as if the writers wanted to shoehorn in various ideas once they realized they weren't getting a full season. These could have been great story arcs instead of just barely grazing the treetops.
@TVF168 Laura took those pictures in between two previous episodes. She told Kate, Colette and Maggie about it that time they were playing truth or dare (?) on the plane when Ted and Dean found them.
And Kate sucked as a pick-pocket. She didn't strike me as being dumb enough to practice on her co-workers. Couldn't she get fired for that?
There is no episode next week or Feb 5. I think it's back Feb 12 and it's the episode they skipped. It's called "Romancing...something". I think Ginni is back (or still in the picture) and I think it's the episode where Laura actually took the nude photos. Because although they showed her taking them in the "Previously on Pan Am" we haven't actually seen it happen.
I love Pan Am. My friends and I actually love this show so much. Hopefully it won't get cancelled :(.
Is it canceled? there was no promo for next weeks episode
