Love this show....hate that it was axed!

However while watching the DVD i got very confused....the episode are in the wrong order.

The corect order should be - 1, 4, 3, 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 7, 14 (as labelled in the dvd).

Series will make much more sense if viewed in this order.

Gave it 4 stars rather than 5 for this error.

I love this program!
I just loved every minute of this very entertaining , glamorous, escapist series.
The girls are so beautiful , likable and all different, none are stereotypes. All superb actors. And their costumes, hair and make up are wonderful. Proper sixties glamour!

This isn't as dark as Mad Men, but its not all fluff either, it does touch on, sexism, racism, politics, art, history and the making of `Modern Girls'.
The women in this program are empowered by their own sense of worth and its so refreshing to see that in a TV program!

Admittedly the first few episodes weren't as good as it later gets. It seemed like they had a small budget, which was letting them down. But this seems to change after episode 4 or so, when the sets and locations become much more elaborate. A bigger budget would have put this on level with Mad Men, I think.

All in all, this is a very watchable series, its glamorous, exciting (some times edge of your seat!) There is an innocence to it that seems deliberate and is enjoyable. Its romantic and moving, emotional and it will make you think from time to time. But overall its quite light entertainment.
The 6 main characters are very likable and interesting. And some there are some good badies too!
I loved the little snapshots into American and European history, and the spy storyline. Also how they played around with time in certain episodes.

I just wish that they had had a bigger budget.

Well written, well acted, well..just great entertainment.

I'm hoping for a second season.

It's a bold statement, but without Pan Am there would be no Virgin Atlantic - or at least no Virgin Atlantic as portrayed in the company's high-gloss, aspirational TV ad campaign. The airline became synonymous with the dawn of the jet-set in the 50s and 60s, its fleet of state-of-the-art Boeing 707s the ultimate in mile-high comfort and the stewardesses the 'it' girls who regularly graced the covers of Time and Newsweek.

It's all a far cry from the fake-tanned, fake-grinned Oompa-Loompas who populate the cabins of the world's low-cost airlines these days, but Pan American was the standard bearer in the early years of commercial air travel - and this TV drama, which inexplicably failed to gather sufficient audience momentum to convince American network ABC to commission a second series, is an homage to the golden era of flight which spreads a sheen of rose-tinted gloss and ratchets up the feel-good factor.

It charts the lives, loves and intrigue of one intercontinental crew through the prism of the 1960s. From the bad-girl-made-good Maggie (Christina Ricci) to the multi-lingual and soon-to-be-recruited-by-the-CIA Kate Cameron, the star-crossed Collete and pilot Dean, the series was based on real-life (albeit heavily dramatised) experiences of former Pan Am stewardess Nancy Hult Ganis, who created the show.

There is little in-flight action (with the exception of Episode 8 - Unscheduled Departure in which the crew is forced to make an emergency landing in the dangerous city of Port Au Prince) with most of the drama unfolding on the ground. From spurned lovers bent on revenge to political intrigue in Moscow, the series uses exotic locations and points of reference to 1960s global news and current affairs around which to build its storylines.

Pan Am is an excellent show. Just like No. 1 fan I can't understand why it's been cancelled. It's a great mix between comedy and drama. Many exciting things going on in this first season, and of many of them we will now not know what would have happened next. Big disappointment. I haven't seen the last 4 or 5 episodes of the first season since the channel showing it here in Sweden have not shown them! (And why do some people think that Pan Am is so horribly bad and that Mad Men is so incredibly good? What's so incredibly good about Mad Men and so horribly bad about Pan Am?)I totally agree with Judy about the characters and the actors, they are great. It also gives an insight into the early 60's in the US (how real I don't know though since I wasn't even born then) I'm waiting for the DVD to be released. I would also like to say to No.1 fan, Judy, Kentishgal and NeuroSplicer that I really like their reviews. To others: Read them!
