Uh oh! Networks messing with the order of television shows is never a good sign.

I was mildly impressed with the pilot -- I'll continue to tune in to see where it goes.

About halfway through this episode, I decided I no longer care about the show. It's not really bad, it just doesn't appeal to me.

I see why they might have switched the air dates, as this episode had a bit more about the missing Bridget and the backstory with the sisters. ABC probably saw it as a better follow-up to the premiere. I noticed that there seemed to be an established flirtation between the blonde pilot and the French chick in this episode, so we might have missed something there.

I'll still hang with it because I love Christina Ricci and there is nothing else I watch in that timeslot. The other girls provide enough eye candy while still doing a decent enough acting job to hold my interest -- which is something I can't say for the new Charlie's Angels. Still, I doubt I'd go out of my way to watch this if it moves to another night.

I watched the 1st 2 episodes this afternoon and so far, so good.

I enjoyed the back story about Kate and Laura and their mother.

Didn't realize that flight attendants have to maintain a certain weight.

The sets on this show was really nice. I also think the CG Pan Am Planes are really well designed. I think they have done a good job incorporating music into the show to help sell the time period. Alot of eye candy in this show if you like the beautiful girls, costumes and set design.

I thought the whole ordeal with Maggie and the passenger who sexually harassed her was bullshit how it turned out. But I guess that's how times were back then. The Co-Pilot is such a dickhead.

Not sure how I feel about the Bridget spy storyline yet. I did like how Dean was bonding with Collette. I guess it does make sense they would turn to each other after their supposed failed relationship (her affair and Bridget rejecting his proposal)

I'm enjoying the show as light entertainment. Plus, it looks great.

Next week's ep looks to be Maggie-centric.

All that constant "six months ago" ....."six months ago" ..... I somewhat enjoyed the first epsiode, but now I wish it really were six months ago, and Brothers & Sisters was back!

Well, as predicted they didn't show any smoking, but mentioned two characters as smokers (both "villains"): the mother and the groper.

If it holds this level it’ll be fine, but another drop needs to be avoided.

It lost about 15% of the Housewives rating (last year Brothers & Sisters doubled that decline) and it still beat CSI Miami in the timeslot.

It's an 'ok' show, but its very very... fluffy. Can't say I'm particularly connected to it, but I'll watch it until I find something better.

I think Dean is a smoker, when he was dancing with Collette she said he smelled like whiskey and cigarettes. Either that or it was just from being in that club.
