Critic Consensus: Pan Am effectively romanticizes the bygone era it seeks to capture with dazzling production values and meticulous period detail, even if the drama at play is a little bland.

Critic Reviews for Pan Am Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (22)

Unlike Playboy's cramped, claustrophobic intrigue, at least Pan Am takes us somewhere.

Sep 16, 2013 | Full Review…

This is a soft-touch, mass-appeal '60s period piece.

Sep 25, 2011 | Full Review…

Beyond selling the glamour of it all, Pan Am may be very hard-pressed to come up with weekly storylines that impel viewers to climb aboard.

There's soap here, and the liberated-woman part sometimes feels like a reach. But the show is fun.

Sep 25, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The romance and the attractively stylized innocence of the era is addictive.

Sep 25, 2011 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Pan Am's easy whirl fits the bill, when its chatter is snappy and also when it's not.

Top Critic

Maybe it's all an ill-conceived homage to classic Sixties shows like The Man from UNCLE or The Saint.

Jul 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Garner definitely gets the most interesting stuff to do in the pilot and she handles it very well, but the other ladies manage to make their moments memorable, too.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The show does an incredible job of sweeping you into the era.

Sep 25, 2011 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The careful attention to period detail is crucial here.
