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.
Cast: Christina Ricci ("Penelope"), Margot Robbie ("Neighbours"), Michael Mosley ("Justified"), Karine Vanasse ("Polytechnique"), Mike Vogel ("The Help"), Kelli Garner ("Going the Distance").
African fashion made global
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 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?
i'd rather live it 'cause dreamers always chase but never get it...............................♥ sam ypma
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.
^ 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.
