Goofs

The Pan Am logo that is used in the intro is the wrong one for the time period of the show. Up until 1971 the letters in "Pan Am" did not touch each other. In 1971 they changed to a globe with no letters in it (The words "Pan Am" were next to it). In 1973 they went back to the original globe logo with Pan Am in it, but with the letters touching.

A lot of fun - a nice simple period drama that is easy on the eyes.
27 November 2011 | by chillgregSee all my reviews

For those wanting to bathe in the innocence of the era, the examining of the stereotypes and issues typical of the day, wrapped in a delightful coating of lovely sets, beautiful and convincing actors, and believable scripting, then this is your show.

For those wanting serious period drama and historical accuracy to the nth minutia, then disappointment awaits. (As many reviews reveal) Some TV shows just make you want to puke or punch the screen. Terra Nova is a prime example at the moment. But I find myself quite ensconced by Pan Am. Not once do I find myself saying "oh, that can't be real", or "yeah right!".

Pan Am's believability is determined by the joy shown for their parts by the actors performances. There aren't many shows which the focus is largely on the woman, and their intelligence and courage in what was very much a man's world.

The sets are truly amazing - they actually built a full-size replica Boeing 707 for this show! In summary - if you have fond memories of Pan Am and the era it represented, or just enjoy well-made television, then I think you will find this show delivers.
