trevo,i agree with you in that. i like when shows have many different levels to it...not just some one-dimensional storytelling. six feet under was so great at capturing different narratives within one episode. and you're exactly right about maggie i think. in fact they made that very clear in the pilot that this was the career of the women in those days....something that could give women opportunities they otherwise wouldn't have. and the politics seemed like something maggie was very enthusiastic about. and hey in those days everybody was excited about kennedy....so really the character was only reflecting what that era was really like.
it's not quite to the dynamics of six feet under,certainly not,but i appreciate what they're trying to embark on with this series. and hey it is about pan am and especially stewardesses and the pilots so naturally there's going to be multitude of occurrences. with the variety of personalities i can't imagine there being a central storyboard.
last night i have to admit i was switching back and forth in the first half hour as it was the season premiere of the walking dead. again,i really enjoy how everything is evolving with this show.
i didn't mean that literally. just that element of sort of juxtaposing different narratives together in a single episode.
that doesn't sound so promising,LUXXX. the unfortunate thing and what i find a little bewildering is that pan am isn't really up against anything in that time slot except for 'csi: miami' which honestly i can't really see garnering that many viewers. and also that new showtime series 'homeland' which shouldn't make up for much considering it's premium cable.
Season 1, Episode 9

Guest Cast Jim Coope: Bill Lowrey Ann Dowd: Marjorie Lowrey Ashley Greene: Amanda Mason John Bedford Lloyd: Capt. Dennis Damian Young: Mr. Bolger David Harbour: Anderson Chris Beetem: Chris Rawlings
Pan Am is about to introduce a woman from Ted’s past — and I mean his distant past. He and the newbie, Amanda Mason, were childhood playmates. Now, since she’s a senator’s daughter, he sees her as hoity-toity. The thing is, she’s not. So maybe a little somethin’-somethin‘ will develop between them over what is being talked about as a two- to three-episode arc.
Tune in to see Ashley on the show Sunday Dec 4th, 10|9c on ABC!
apparently pan am is beginning to make some nice moderate gains in viewership. they said last night's episode was up from last week's episode. i had a feeling once the show got off the ground(no pun) and some necessary promotion,it would start gaining a wider audience.
unfortunately the show won't be back for three weeks with thanksgiving approaching and all. hopefully with the holidays it will have an even bigger audience as family will be round et al.
