Pan Am, Ringer, 90210 Thoughts . . .
So I am pretty sure “Pan Am” just isn’t gunna be flying much longer. I watch it every week, I’ve tried to like it and get into it, I just can’t. Based on the sinking ratings, I’m not alone. It’s slow and the drama isn’t there. I feel like the nostalgia aspect is the only reason I’m still watching . . . and I’m not old enough for it to be my own nostalgia!
“Ringer” I once again loved. I felt so bad for Gemma in this episode! I did not see her getting killed at all. Well, is she really dead? What about Bridget’s sponser? Some of the things I guessed at, like the daughter misunderstanding the NA meeting and thinking she was going to rehab, and the daughter telling her dad about Shioban being a women who cheats with married men . . namely him. I’m kinda wondering if Henry knows the truth, if he is the one Shioban is calling. When he got his manuscript and it said “Call Me” on it I was suspicious.
I forgot to watch “90210″ last week, and it doesn’t seem like I missed much. I stand by my last thoughts that Naomi is the only interesting storyline anymore. Annie being a prostitute? Bleh! Dixon on Speed? Bleh! Navid and the stolen car ring? Bleh! I feel like the show has become a predictable mesh of all the bad 80s movie teen storylines they could combine into an hour.
A Hodge Podge: Pan Am, Dirty Soap, Ringer, Fringe, Secret Circle, 90210 Thoughts . . .
This is a quick post with some quick thoughts on a bunch of other shows I’ve watched over the week, but didn’t get around to doing a full post on, but wanted to squeeze some quick thoughts out on . . .
After episode two of “Pan Am” I’m thinking people at ABC might not only be having doubts about canning “Brothers and Sisters,” but here is hoping they may be giving having this be “Desperate Housewives” final season. The ratings for the second episode went downnnnn. For me, the best story they had going was the mystery surrounding Bridgett, and they resolved it in the second episode! I’ll keep watching, but other things might start taking priority when the networks no doubt beging shifting things.
Have you tuned into “Dirty Soap” on E! O M G! This show is just more drama than you’ll see on any soap. The Kirsten Storms vs Farath Fath (Belle vs Mimi) drama alone is worth tuning in for! But then you also have Farah and Nadjia (Mimi and Chloe) facing off with their mother or mother-in-law-to-bes over the men in their lives. OMG it’s just such a sick and twisted show!
“Ringer” I’m still loving, it’s my most new favorite show so far . . . that may change this month with the onslaught of fairy tale shows and “American Horror Story.” I do wonder how long they can take the premise. I mean eventually the truth that Siobhan is alive and Bridget has been impersonating her will be exposed.
“Fringe” . . . Oh I still love you, but you make me scratch my head. With Peter gone, I guess we are just supposed to figure the Broyles on the other side never died? Cause he was back with no explanation this week! I do feel my initial thoughts were right, half of the season will be with Peter missing. Grrr!
I am really starting to get into “Secret Circle.” The latest episode with a guy from their parents past coming to end the new circle, and the titillating fact that Cassie’s mom might not have been all that good . . . putting some friend into a cationic state was just great. Why did she do it? What do the evil parents want? I’m really starting to like the show!
“90210″ . . . what can I say about you? Naomi is the only thing worth watching for anymore. Eventually Silver and Adrianna are going to have a huge WTF moment over the fact they fought over Navid . . . one of the biggest tools on the show. I don’t care about Dixon’s recording job, I don’t care about Liam’s bar, I only marginally care about Annie and her money woes. This show is probably not going to be around for another season.
Pan Am: Series Premier Thoughts
So with the loss of “Brothers and Sisters” on Sunday nights, I decided to at least give “Pan Am” a try. Did anyone else watch it? During “Housewives” I was almost at the point of not watching it simply because every commercial shoved it down your throats with a “X minutes to take off!” promo. Ack, when you have to advertise something to death, it sometimes isn’t a good sign!
If you didn’t watch, the show is about 4 Pan Am Stewardesses (aka Flight Attendants) launching a brand new clipper jet. Two are sisters, they all have some knowledge and history with one another as well as the newly minted pilot and his smarmy co-pilot.
Set in the 60s, you have a bit of the women’s lib movement going on so far, and a lot of politics. One of the stewardesses gets recruited by the government to be some kind of a flying spy to watch for Cold War operatives.
The show was okay. I was a little confused for awhile, especially with all the characters and back stories just thrown at you. However everything neatly wrapped up by the end, leaving the viewer with a mystery to come back to.
I have to say I LOVED the outfits, the hair, the mannerisms. That alone is enough to want to come back to see more of. Christina Ricci just rocks as well.
Did you watch? What did you think? It’s also the new poll on the site!
