Pan Am– ABC, Sundays, 10/9c
Christina Ricci (Penelope) stars as the globe-trotting stewardess in the period drama about famous Pam American World Airways. Making flying glamorous again, it brings back the nostalgic era of the 1960’s through fashion, set design, and plot lines with a flair for espionage. Pam Am is no longer just an account mentioned at the advertising agency on Mad Men, it’s the new, refreshing and sexy drama that mad men of the era would have loved to watch.
