Retro TV Shows
So have y’all noticed the new retro tv shows? The ones I am talking about in particular are Pan Am and The Playboy Club. I have fallen in love with both of these. They’re smart, funny, and a great look at history. I know they’re not accurate but it is still a way to look back into the past.
The show Pan Am went through a lot to get some accurate information. They showed the logo on swizzle sticks and other things and real stewardesses from that time period said that they looked like the real thing. While Pan Am called them stewardesses, they were hostesses, guides, etc. They offered women a chance to see the world and do things never before possible.
I thought The Playboy Club was going to be just sex. Pretty much what everyone thought back then, too. But when you watch the show you get to see why some of these women worked there. It wasn’t as slutty as it seemed. And you get to see how the mob tied in. Celebrities. The whole shebang!
It is funny how tv has these trends. But I like this trend. As much as I used to like reality tv, this is much better to me and much more refreshing!.
