ABC's Pan Am - TV Review
I watched the first two episodes, and so did many others, but like me, they bailed. Enjoyable, fizzy, not enough to crack my regular viewing rotation. Last week it had less than 6 million viewers with a 1.8 in the 18-49 demo. Considering it debuted to over 10 million viewers, that's not a good sign for its longevity. Sure its worst episode had more viewers than the best episode of AMC's Mad Men, but that's the price of network TV. It's fun to see Christina Ricci and Kelli Garner work it in period attire, and have a Sinatra tune take us out at the end of the episode. Part of me wishes the show had legs as long as some of its stewardesses, but it doesn't look like the nostalgic escapism has kept enough people.
