Episode 8 of 13

This is a make it or break it week for Pan Am. ABC is expected to decide to whether to order more episodes or cancel the show. According to the above article, Pan Am is going very well internationally, but ABC doesn't care about that since Sony produces the show and makes money off the international sales.

I love the show and have been impressed with the stories they've come up with for a series about stewardesses. I enjoyed last night ep. I hope ABC orders more episodes.

Hoping for more episodes as well

Desperate Housewives and Pan Am were both up in some respect from the previous week as well, with Housewives posting a two tenths increase to 3.0 and Pan Am bring in 5.7 million and 1.8 for its broadcast.

I liked this episode alot. Even last week's that focused on Laura and dealt a little with racism was good IMO. Pretty compelling drama with the crew landing in Haiti and I thought the girls were great.

Plus, we had a Harris Yulin sighting. But, the one thing that pissed me off was when Kate decided to leave his body in Haiti. Really? His body is going to make or break whether the plane takes off?

Karine Vanasse was great as usual. It was cool that she got alot of screentime this episode since the last few weeks have focused more on Kate, Laura and Maggie. I really like the chemistry that Colette is developing with Dean.

For what? Picking up the Haitian refugee? Dean got his ass handed to him by Pan Am management for that.

refuge
going off on the passengers
threatening to leave passengers behind
making them leave their luggage (yes this was needed for weight but this series has portrayed Pan Am as being totally about the passengers and you know some of those passengers had money/social connections and would have raised hell)

It was leave the luggage or die or be hostages at the very least. I think they made the right call.

If you're looking for a realistic show where characters behave logically and the writers carefully craft believable and logically consistent storylines, I highly recommend The Walking Dead. Everyone around here raves about it.

I just saw this episode title and thought it would have been a great name for the series finale.
