    At least she's out of the coma for the series.

    Otherwise I thought it might be Girlfriend In A Diaper.

    This sounds like one of Jack Donaghy's show's intended to destroy NBC. Ricci is an unpleasant-looking plague on TV. Fortunately this trainwreck will be cut after three eps.

    I like Ricci, but even her high forehead and ample bosom couldn't make me watch Pan-Am. But I am wearing out my third copy of "Black Snake Moan".

    :p

    Not only is the creator Liz Brixius, but Dick Wolf is an executive producer and Wolf Films (you know, the "Law and Order" folks) is one of the production companies. You can almost add this show to you recording schedule for the 2013-14 season as at NBC Wolf has a free pass.

    Any TV reporter that calls Ricci, "Everybody’s favorite Pan Am stewardess..." has no clue. She's an interesting actress, but was completely mis-cast in Pan Am and sounds like an equally bad fit for this.

    I'm not sure why she's going for these very mainstream parts, she's much better at quirky/indy sorts of things with a darker edge. Maybe she should find something on a cable channel.

    I kinda thought this sounded quirky with a darker edge for a TV sitcom:
    And if Brixius is given control, "Nurse Jackie" certainly has its darker edge.

    Yeah, in Pan Am there were all these tall, gorgeous stews (there were height minimums) and suddenly this tiny, pinched-face little troll. Huh? Pan Am started great with the amazing French chick in Berlin and JFK on the TeeVee, but the plots devolved into incomprehensible mush right quick.

    Unlikely, implausible, if not near-impossible storyline in today's pull-the-plug, move 'em out, HMO-Medicare directed health care environment. Where's a gov't death panel when we need one?

    Glad you brought that up. I thought to myself 17 years in a coma? I don't know how long one can write storylines without confronting the 800 pound gorilla. And if you're NBC do you really want to risk that confrontation?

    A 17 year coma is possible.

    We suspend belief for most of the TV shows we watch ... why not this one?
    It is not supposed to be a real life documentary.

    Yes, but in today's medical environment, not likely to happen.

    Well, I suppose. If we could buy into a beautiful genie popping out of a bottle, why not coming out of a sustained 17 year coma?

    I've given up on that argument, people seem to think every movie and TV show have to reflect the world as we know it. Used to be one of them, fun to bitch and moan about all the little inaccuracies but it is far easier to roll with it and realize it isn't real. You can still comment how it would be nice to live in that world where X or Y happens but the endless nitpicking comparison to our world is tiresome.

    It's not the 17 year coma I find to be ridiculous. It's the whole waking up to find out you had a kid while in a coma thing.
