Storyline

Dean takes on his first assignment since his promotion, piloting the Clipper Majestic on its inaugural New York to London flight. Bridget is supposed to be his lead stewardess, until she's a no-show for the flight. Grounded purser Maggie is called in to fill in for her. On the same fateful flight, Kate adds another dimension to her work as she takes on her first assignment from U.S. intelligence. Her stress is compounded when she discovers that newly minted stewardess, Laura, her sister, is also working the same flight. Written by ABC Publicity

Refreshing period drama featuring a charming cast, some promising arcs and even inspiring elements
26 September 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A series featuring stewardesses and pilots sounded like an entertaining aerial escape. It's exactly what Pan Am is and don't expect it to change your life or blow your mind in any way. Their plane won't crash on a desert island or get lost in an alternate universe after entering an electromagnetic storm. This is just a period drama mostly about the highs and lows of flight attendants. The production is good and you should really feel in the 60s. It features multiple sets from hotel rooms to street corners without forgetting the mandatory airports and planes. They're all well designed and some scenes have light but immersive visual effects. The main cast is leaded by Christina Ricci who plays Maggie Ryan, a stewardess who replaced a co-worker at the last minute. However surprisingly the story didn't focus on her but on the other characters. It's an original approach even if I'm new to the genre considering I'm not ER or Grey's Anatomy fluent. I won't say that it made things intriguing, far from it, but it could convince some viewers to at least watch the second episode. Among the crew was Colette Valois, played by Karine Vanasse. I found the French woman was slightly stereotyped but like with the Italian girl I appreciated the fact that some short dialogs weren't subtitled to make them more exotic. Moreover at least one of them should grow on you because they all have different backgrounds and two are sisters actually. The show also mixes genres from espionage to romance and some arcs definitely have potential. In fact they were twisted enough and made the story less predictable. It won't make you fall from your seat but they could have gone for something soapy instead. A few sequences also contributed to make the pace more exciting. One should make you root for girls breaking the rules and an other one featuring Colette in a hotel was well edited and dressed by a sensual tune. Last but not least one could worry that the show is sponsored by some airline but I don't think it's the case even if you never know these days. Indeed I really enjoyed two scenes featuring kids dreaming to become like the adults they see. It's the cycle of life after all. What's your dream ? Maybe watching Pan Am will give you enough energy to put an other foot in front of the other and make your dream more accessible.
