One Coin In A Fountain



Looks like the writers are already struggling to come up with anything to sustain this series. What started off with a lot of promise is quickly free falling. This episode as well as last week it was just a lot of....wandering around. Only thing of interest was at the end when Kate looks to be falling for her mark that she used to gain access into a casino to lift fingerprints from another mark.

The writers better come up with something legit or this show will be gone, which I actually see happening soon. Gut feeling.

Have not watched it, thus no opinion either way. But I've been seeing two different perspectives. One is the steady decline in viewership. The other more recent one, is that the show has eclectic tastes and if you stick with it, it's rather good. This of course was on opinion, but still.

Well, it is an acquired taste and I like the characters. But the writers seem to not even know what the show is about. Pan Am? Runaway Bride? Spies? They need to focus on one thing and have everyone reacting to that. The last couple of episodes it's been kind of "head cut off the chicken and running around aimlessly".

The Genuine Article



I guess you can say this was the "origin" episode of Maggie (Christina Ricci) in where she started from and how she ended up at Pan Am. It was interesting, but I just don't see where this show is going or if it has the legs to make it to the end of the season. I will give it another couple of episodes to see if they can come up with something better.

Looking at the ratings numbers for the series it looks really bad, dropping from 11 million viewers of it's premiere to just a little over 5 million for this episode. Not good. I am interested to see Gaius Charles (Friday Night Lights) guest staring on a future episode of the series and it's really the only reason why I am giving the show a temporary reprieve till it airs.

Truth Or Dare



What a great episode. I think it helped the series that they simplified it and went with only 2 story lines, both dealing with the beginning of a relationship and the ending of another. The first one dealt with Joe (Gaius Charles) and Laura (Margot Robbie) attraction for each other in a time that wasn't always acceptable which created the bulk of tension. But I thought the scenes they shared together were fantastic. They left it open at the end for his character to return. The other story dealt with Kate (Kelli Garner) and Niko (Goran Visnjic) saying goodbye now that the US Government is forcing his hand to defect and work with them as a spy against his own country.

Overall this was a solid episode and if they decide to keep it simply like they did here at the exclusion of other characters, then so be it.

Unscheduled Departure



This is exactly the kind of episode I was expecting from the series. The entire episode consisted just of the plane, the crew and it's passengers as they make an emergency landing in Haiti when one of their Pan Am passengers has a heart attack. Adding a wrinkle to the mix is when the stewardess' allow a refugee to stowaway on board back to the states. Really good episode and I hope to see more of these kinds of episodes in the future.

Is Pan Am Really Canceled? Not So Fast...

I do believe that the show is in fact cancelled and that Karine Vanasse did in fact get the call from the studio saying so. I just think that ABC is now trying to do damage control so that her statements don't affect the ratings for the episode coming back from Christmas.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang



Looks like it's back to more of the same as far as story telling is concerned. They went back to multiple story lines, but this time it's 4 separate stories, spreading each one beyond thin. And to top it off, they literally end it with a Gun Shot cliffhanger. If this is in fact the last episode to air, talk about a non-resolution episode. Non of the 4 stories had any resolution whatsoever.

Secrets And Lies



I was certain that the last episode would in fact be the final airing. I was wrong. Nothing has really changed about the series. Still too many stories bouncing off one another. This one takes place more or less at the same hotel where the Beatles were saying. It's implied, but we never seen them portrayed here.
