Not what I was expecting......
25 September 2011 | by (Chattanooga, TN) – See all my reviews

I was expecting to see some silly show about flight attendants and the various things they encounter while serving passengers. I was very glad to see that many plot lines were exposed in the Pilot, and it appears that many secrets are left to be discovered. I liked the look and the feel of the show as the producers try to capture the essence of a time gone by. I think the show has promise and potential. It will be interesting to see how each storyline is developed. I was surprised to see Christina Ricci is in this, and in fact, had I not seen a picture of her and advertisement for it on Facebook I may not have watched it. But, I am glad that I did, and I will be watching weekly unless the show starts disappointing.
