Does anybody else watch it? I'm obsessed.

I'm still thinking about Sunday's episode.
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

It returned on Sunday, but I turned it off about half way through the episode.

They only ordered one remaining episode. They are airing the ones that have been filmed, filming one more and then it's probably over. I don't think they have cancelled it officially, but it doesn't look promising.
Pretty pretty please don't you ever ever feel like you're less than f**ckin' perfect!

They're definitely still filming, because I've been submitting to work as an extra for this week.

Yes, I watch it!!! It is so good now! The problem with this show is that it didn't pick up until the 3rd or 4th episode, which was a BAD idea. But now, it is good, I promise! I just hope it isn't too late...

Love it, and so hope it doesn't go though it probably will.

The episode where they made an emergency landing in Haiti was my favorite. It's a great cast, and if it is axed I hope to see more of them elsewhere (especially Margot Robbie).

Its a great show and it makes me sad so many stopped watching in America, yes it took a few episodes to pick up but now it's wonderful. The show is also doing great in every other country its playing. However whilst not 'officially' axed everyone knows that it really is, one of the cast even tweeted so, shame.

The last 3 minutes of this week's episode where what I've been waiting for all season. I can't believe I have to wait a whole week for the continuation of this plot line!

"I can't believe I have to wait a whole week for the continuation of this plot line!"

According to the ABC website, the next PAN AM episode airs February 12...so we have to wait another three weeks for continuation of that amazing JFK plotline.

I admit, unfairly, I sorta had a reaction "we saw this on Mad Men a few years back" with the JFK revelation...

I don't know why ABC is taking a break with their Sunday night shows just as they go into February sweeps and have only had a few new episodes since Christmas--

SongandDanceMan while I think I don't like the show as much as you do--I do agree that it's found its footing. I kinda like that, despite the big international/historical setting and plot it feels fairly small and even intimate, which some may see as a negative. I think maybe the overkill of ads in this case worked against it--as did the cost. I didn't know it wa doing well internationally--my friend said that in London where he lives it's been bumped from the major channels to secondary ones, but he may have been wrong?

I remember the JFK season on Mad Men. Initially, Matthew Weiner wished to avoid it but then realize it was just too much of a watershed moment so he decided to have Roger's daughter Margaret have her wedding just around the day he was shot, even deciding to continue the wedding anyway un-postponed with about 1/3 of the invited guests bothering to show up and being miserable. There is a funny scene of poor little rich girl Margaret Sterling sitting there with her veil on crying with the TV updates of the assassination but she is definitely not crying about the fact her President was killed, but that her wedding just got ruined.

And also the fact Peggie and Duck were having a nooner out of the office which made fun of the fact that neither Peggie nor Duck could ever honestly tell anyone where they were when they found out. Gah, Mad Men needs to come back now!

THREE WEEKS? They've been setting up Maggie's obsession with JFK since the third episode, and now they're taking a break? NOW?

*sigh*

Eric Pan Am is on BBC in the UK and is remaing there, the ratings took a hit when BBC2 messed up the scheduling but it levelled off fine. New episodes start in the UK this week i think

I thought it had. I think they are going to wait until May to "officially" cancel it,but I thought a couple cast members tweeted and have said in interviews their on to other projects,meaning the show was over.

I enjoyed it so I would hope it gets renewed or maybe another network take it(AMC perhaps? Air it before or after MAD MEN)

For it to be on AMC the budget and episode order would be cut and AMC already took a lot of drastic measures (they green light zero pilots to go forward as series) to give Mad Men a new deal, keep The Walking Dead with a proper budget, and give Breaking Bad a 16 episode swan song.

I actually thought Pan-Am has done extremely well internationally. You'd be surprised how many shows in the US have survived based on its viability in the foreign market, Heroes is one example.

Of course there are also examples of shows doing VERY well internationally and not in their native US and being canceled (Models Inc is the terrible example I can immediately think of lol)

People love Pan Am here. How many more episodes are there? I know they only ordered one more to be filmed.

Pan Am is wrapped for the season. Rumor on set (I occasionally work as an extra) is that if it gets renewed, the network is moving it out to LA because filming in NYC is more expensive than they anticipated (they have to rent out mansions a lot for their on location "hotel in a foreign country" scenes).

I've heard that the show has a good audience in France, but I don't have any data to back that up.

What were they expecting when they recreated these foreign locales?

Damn, I hate NY shows moving/getting canceled (RIP Prime Suspect). But Pan Am at least has a foreign location most of the time. I hate when shows shot in LA that are clearly on a LA backlot.

International sales apparently really don't get the *network* much money which is why it's next to never happened that a show keeps going due to international success (Hell the eternally low rated ABC daytime soap Loving was massive in France and especially South Africa as well as other parts of the world...)
