This provides a wonderful opportunity for us to answer the countless (couple dozen) tweets, emails, and various other cris de coeur which can be summed up thusly: “T Lo, where are your Pan Am recaps?!? Answer: We stopped writing them. We just got bored with the show and it was a chore to write about. We haven’t seen any of the episodes since it came back from its short hiatus. Did it get any better? We’re asking.

Anyway, Christina (probably reluctantly) straps on the mid-sixties retro looks once again for Oyster magazine and flogs her show as best she can.
How much of Pan Am is shot on an airplane set? Half?
Yeah. I think probably we spend about 60 percent of our time on a stage we call ‘the hangar’. There’s a plane that was built inside the hangar and we shoot all the plane interiors there.
Do you fly to locations for the show as well?
No, no. We shoot all in the tri-state area, and we use digital effects to make it look like wherever it is we’re supposed to be going.
So you must love doing the show?
I love doing the show. The times that are most fun are when we’re in the hangar and we’re all stuck in such close proximity that we come up with fun games…
It’s a somewhat lifeless affair, we have to say. We’re not sure how her glum, dead-eyed stare is supposed to sell the show. And the styling is pretty uninspired. She’s been on TV in nothing but ’60s look for months now, so nothing here looks new or interesting.
