Raise your hand if you know - like I know - like we ALL know - that Grace Park's character on H50 is undercover. Thought so. I mean, do the writers really think we're dumb?
I can't believe I asked that.
And I love Terry - but to be honest, I just want my team back and for H50 to get on with it. *sigh*
No comment on The Mentalist other than a mystified shake of the head at their writers. They obviously borrowed H50's chimps.
New shows - er...have I watched any? Oh, yeah, Pan Am. No way I could miss that. My dad worked for Western Airlines ("the only way to fly"), which, while not in direct competition with PA (after all, it wasn't called Western Airlines for nothing *G*), still, I remember the stewardesses, the tailored uniforms and hats, the elegance, even for the short trips. Thanks to dad's job, we flew free not only on Western (first class), but free on PA and a few others if we were willing to fly standby (duh, of course we were!) so I remember flying PA when I was...maybe 11 or 12? to New York. All those early years of flying left me dreaming of being a stewardess - the only time I ever dreamed of being something that was 'strictly' a female job. But oh, how I wanted to wear those uniforms, the cute hats, the gloves, and travel the world. *sigh* Of course, my dad tried to give me the facts, but when you're dreaming of adventure via a beautiful blue uniform and wings - you don't listen. But eventually, my dad found a way. First he took me to a class at Western where the young women learned the job. The teacher was female and spoke as if it were the most wonderful job in the world. Then he took me to the airport (LAX) and the Western offices and I caught on.
At the airlines, the stewardesses were, once their uniforms were inspected (and yes, they were weighed in) invisible, except to each other. They fought for seniority anyway they could, fought for the cross-country flights versus the dreaded 'turn-arounds', and they even faced the same crap young actresses (and young actors) faced: the airlines weird version of the "casting couch". The male employees thought of stewardesses as 'things' and that included the pilots (who often referred to them as "air wives" if they were half-way polite but, more often, the pilots called them "air holes").
It was rough finding out my dad was right. Usually we don't discover that until we're adults, so it was quite a shock. My dad. Right. The world had to be ending.
Anyway, I'm still enjoying Pan Am because it is capturing the time, if not the complete truth, and besides, it's fun to constantly say, "I had one of those" or "I had a round suitcase!" etc. *G*
Okay, back to bed for me - television and a memory foam bed pad await. Oh, and a kitty. Gosh, I miss my LJ and flist. :(
