After a brief holiday, Pan Am made its return to ABC two weeks ago. Inside sources said the series went under a bit of a much needed face lift, and it shows. Luckily, it’s like good plastic surgery- like when someone gets Restalin and you don’t even notice, but damn they look good! Speaking of plastic surgery, and I’m not saying she had any as anyone who knows me knows I would NEVER speak against Miss Ricci, Christina looks more beautiful than ever! Maybe it’s her bangs? Don’t get me wrong, I love her big, round, gorgeous, haunted, baby doll forehead, but I find the bangs uber chic.
Speaking of Ricci, is girl-on-girl action a requirement in her contracts or does it just seem to work out that way? Last week the copilot’s fiancee planted one on Maggie, who didn’t exactly resist it. She kissed a girl and didn’t mind it. Needless to say, the wedding is kind of off. Also fitting her “girl from the wrong side of the runway” image, she was offered the opportunity to be a smuggler for some smarm ball. (Apparently, being a Pan Am stewardess was tantamount to being in the KGB. Or, at least a Bond Girl for the love of Daniel Craig!) As a kindred hooker with a heart of gold, I am proud to say Maggie turned down the dirt ball.
Colette was throwing her carry-on bag around as usual, moving on from the all-looks-and-a-box-of-rocks captain to a traveling rogue prince that said captain mistakingly mistook for the suspected smuggler that was courting Maggie. Awkward!!!!!!
Two historically included moments included in this episode were Laura photographed by my legendary predecessor, Andy Warhol. In the buff no less. Her, not him. (Praise Jesus!) And, Kennedy having his brains blown out. Which was made sadder because Maggie (my fav) worshipped him; even worked on his campaign.
Thankfully, it seems Pan Am has gotten much better and seems to have found its footing. Or winging? Or flying, or whatever! Just watch the damn show, Sundays on ABC!
Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the ’70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael’s first published book, Homo-Hero’s Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
