I know I need to watch one of these 1960’s era programs.
I missed Mad Men right out of the gate and could never seem to catch up. I skipped The Playboy Club for reasons too numerous to mention.
I wasn’t going to let Pan Am pass me by.
Did you catch the Pan Am premiere Sunday night? The stewardess look and lifestyle is definitely romanticized. I found the show somewhat candy-coated and overly optimistic…but not the kind that makes you sick to your stomach — the kind that makes you stare and go, “Gosh, I wish I’d lived back then.” (And I only missed it by a couple of years.)
My biggest complaint with Pan Am?
The music’s too loud.
Seriously. The scoring for this series is so loud, it often overpowers the action on screen. I know the producers are trying to establish a certain ambiance, but they need to remember:
Not all the viewers were born back then. They can turn it down a notch.
