    Ii am really hoping that ABC comes to it’s senses and returns my Favorite Program “Pan Am” to the airwaves… I love the nostagia associated with the show.. I always got goose bumps watching the stewardesses do the Pan Am Walk… The storylines were very intriguing, especially how they wrote episodes into historical moments… I am really bummed it was taken down.. It was like an ariline crash, TV wise.. ABC has yanked other favorites off the air, “V”, No Ordinary Family, Detroit 187 to name a few… It is getting so, they can’t be trusted to finish with a good product anymore.. That garbage, GBC is so vanilla.. It is a hollowed out Desperate Housewives… The only thing ABC has going for it now is “Missing”

    I agree with most of all the reviews, unfortunatly it is not coming back and i understand that BBC2 has bought it. I have been desperatley trying to find out info on what days, what time and what american cable (Xfinity or Comcast) it is on. I cant seem to navigate their website correctly. Someone please help me find the info out. Thanx a million

    I love this show! I hope that it does escape the cut, as it will be a sad day if it’s not renewed. There are so many shows on the air that depict such horrible things I thought Panam did such a great job of happy endings even if they weren’t always completely happy. I will miss this show.

  4. Hope says

    This show is wonderful. I love it and I hope the ABC powers that be bring it back. It’s so well done and so different from anything else on TV. Please keep this unique show.

    Pan Am series brought back so many childhood memories. Pan Am brought TV back into my home. Real shows like Father knows Best ,Bonanza , Little House on the Prarie, etc. were true American shows. Pan Am represented that kind of dedicated TV entertainmrnet that it was made for. Not the junk, meaningless , mind less reality shows . What has American TV sunk to? Thank God I can DVR the old shows. Obviiousely Americans cannot appreciate good true acting that Pan Am crew displayed. It was great seeing a true American historical fiction presentation. Loosing Pan Am is a loss for all…especially me!

    On e of the best shows on TV in years. Actors & actresses were extremely realistic and it brought back a little of the 60’s to the middle aged Americans that look for more than relatity shows that represent unreality in the minds and hearts of normal Americans.

  7. Linda says

    I love this show. I looked forward to Sunday nights. Please do not cancel this show. I think maybe it just comes on to late for a lot of people to stay up and watch it. Maybe you could change the time to 8 or 9.

  8. Joi says

    I really enjoyed watching PanAm! There are very few good shows on television that aren’t reality based!! Please bring it back!!

  9. Monika says

    I love Pan Am, but if your not going to bring it back, at least give us a finale! Maybe Dean and Collette get back together!

  10. Ruby says

    I agree with the above statements. The show is a good one and very interesting, you may want to down play the whole spy part and amp up in other areas. Definitely, take a look at the demographics of the individuals who enjoy the show, you may need to adjust the time slot or actually give it a touch of advertisement.

    Love it! Bring it back.

    Thanks.

    Pan Am is great….you are using the wrong age group for your ratings. Try those who remember the Pan Am days! I am in my 60’s and love it

  12. Shea says

    I love this show. Was sad to hear that it may not return. Please bring it back! All of the good ones seem to get canceled. Cancel GCB & bring Pan Am back!!
