Tread Perilously – ‘Pan Am: We’ll Always Have Paris’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Pan Am‘s “We’ll Always Have Paris”

Tread Perilously‘s Failed Prestige month takes an unscheduled trip on Pan Am for the episode called “We’ll Always Have Paris.”

Kate’s first trip to Paris is filled with excitement and terror as her mother decides to book a seat on the flight. Also, her CIA handler wants her to deliver a package to a courier in the city. Meanwhile, Laura has reasons of her own to avoid her mother, Dean continues his search for Bridget while maybe starting something with Colette, and Maggie’s choice to defend herself leads to Ted trying — and failing — to be her white knight.

Erik uses the wrong microphone and discovers the scheduled show for the week, Vinyl, is currently unavailable. Justin finds the spy plot to be the most laughable and declares that Pan Am fails in a very special way. The pair try to find a better role for star Kelli Garner. Christina Ricci remains a Tread Perilously favorite, though. Margot Robbie also proves a welcome presence even if she fails the “zoo” vocal test. The male cast, however, prompts many notes and replacement suggestions. “Can you sell Pan Am to China?” becomes the new philosophical question of the age, and the cynical edge of the show becomes a key point of discussion.
