A long-haul flight back to the distant century in which air travel is glamorous, comfortable and more than something to endure between points A and B. Stews and pilots rule these skies, and passengers dress up to go wheels-up. Oh, and the Cold War has never been hotter.

hope it will make it. it was a really great pilot episode. i love that 60's jet-set era. and christina was excellent although she wasn't as much a central character last night. but there are some really poignant issues in this show that's highlighted. such as the way women,especially flight attendants,were treated in those days. and also how empowered women felt wearing those uniforms. the spy elements were interesting also....i really had no idea flight attendants were used for such things in those days.

I loved it, and I also hope it lives to see another day. This is the first time I'm really giving network shows a shot, but I feel like all the shows I'm liking are doing poorly in the ratings.

I missed it, but I look forward to watching this. This season on practically every basic cable network has a lot of potential. This show is one of them because I know we want to watch something classy like this without having to get cable. (I am speaking in terms of Mad Men.)

Is this show an hour long?

The only turn-off I have is Christina Ricci's acting. How was it?

Enjoyed it. The spy element is a little odd. Will have to see how that develops. So far, I like the main cast quite well.

Haven't seen any of it yet, but I find the whole thing to be quite an interesting subject-Mad Men should bring a certain audience to it just for the fashion if nothing else. I knew a lot of flight attendants used to transport things we can't talk about here because their luggage was never searched but the spy thing is new.

i dunno papa_levante.....she was pretty good for the little she was emphasised. i actually think christina is a wonderful character actress.....when she gets to dress up as opposed to sort of playing in her normal appearance. monster,pumpkin,the man who cried,sleepy hollow,addams family etc. she to me is sort of the female equivalent of johnny depp,imo. so this to me is a perfect narrative for her.

I was shocked how little Christina was in the first ep and she's getting paid $225K per episode!! Pays to be a film star slumming it.

^ Haha hit sure does, i mean i was shocked as well, because she did NOT seem like a main character at all! After all the major promotion she has been doing i thought its her show!

But whatever, i loved it, loved the stories, it was breezy, and fun in a sexy way. Sure it has its mistakes, and its nowhere near the league of Mad Men perfection, but this could turn out to be a nice show to watch.

imo: not bad, not great but has lot of potential. Iīm gonna keep watching to see where it goes. From the two new shows set in the 60s, itīs so much better than The Playboy Club...

i am watching it right now, and I am enjoying it so much. Such an interesting topic to make a series about. I really want a Pan Am bag now
