Pan Am Episode 3: Kennedy Is in Town and He Likes Stewardesses; We’re Going to a Party!

pan am 3 656By Michael Fitzgerald Troy


What should you be reading? The Ladies’ Home Journal? (Probably.) You’ll just have to settle for my latest commentary on ABC’s delicious new “Soap Opera in the skies,” Pan Am.

Kennedy is in town and he likes stewardesses; we’re going to a party. That could easily sum up the entire episode, but I’d like to look a little closer at the extra smokehouse almonds we were treated to this flight.

“Take My Breath Away” is a a Berlin song and, this week, the girls’ flight destination in the opening sequence. Throw in John Fitzgerald (no relation… Maybe!) Kennedy, and you’ve got a whole fondue pot full of fun! I said it before and I’ll say it again – if not a million more times – I love Christina Ricci, and her role as Maggie continues to intrigue me. A Pan Am Flight Attendant is tantamount to being Stewardess Barbie, and there’s not a gosh darn thing wrong with that. Maggie is the Stepford stewardess with her perfect walk and wave, but I suspect a very messed-up background behind that veneer of perfection. The show and appeal of the show may seem style over substance, but it continues to develop without losing its style. It’s also revealed that my favorite French whore, Colette, was 3 years old when Nazis occupied France and isn’t too fond of Germany’s U.S. atonement.

Throw in a little noir C.I.A. Intrigue, and you have a TV show. I came to fly, and I think I will. Pan Am airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on ABC
