'Pan Am' takes off on ABC, but will it stay aloft?

pan-am-review.jpgOn Sunday (Sept. 25), ABC's retro drama "Pan Am" debuted to strong numbers, considering the competition it was up against. According to ABC, "Pan Am" was the highest rated non-sports program in Sunday's 10 p.m. timeslot and the first show debut to built on a "Desperate Housewives" lead-in since "Grey's Anatomy" in 2006.

We enjoyed the '60s nostalgia, something we love about "Mad Men." Though, with AMC's prestige hit, the backdrop is just that -- a pitch-perfect setting that provides the space for a well-written, expertly-acted drama to unfold.

While "Pan Am's" premiere episode intrigued us enough to tune in again next week, we're still waiting for the story to take precedence over the campy branding and cute outfits.

So, what did you think of "Pan Am" and its depiction of the reality for women 50 years ago? Share your thoughts below, zappers.
