TV: Pan Am, Episode Two

It’s pretty women!

Jets!

The 1960s!

How can I not like it?

It’s not deep, and the dialogue is just all wrong, but I like it.

Two quibbles:

Those two buildings — at least — did not exist in 1963. Ah, TV CGI budgets!

And those prices seem very high to me for a diner in 1963.

They also managed to make France — France! — smoke-free in 1963.

Of course, looming in the distance is the day that changed everything in America: November 22. I’m not looking forward to that.

But I’m hooked.

    You are entirely correct about those two buildings. As I write this I am sitting in my office in the black building (101 Park Ave.) looking at the other building (120 Park Ave.).

    There was another anachronisim just a second before that shot: The underground tunnel from which the young pilot is emerging, until about a year ago, was two-way. However, that detail is lost in the car’s zipping along the current 2011 one-way tunnel.

      Oh, I see you also saw my post about the two buildings. I replied to that in your other Comment. Yeah, I guess I forgot about the tunnel traffic change.
