Men in charge of programming yearn for the good old days when women didn’t dominate, writes Maureen Down in her Sunday New York Times column. Making them into ‘loose’ stewardesses reminds men is simpler times.

Writes Dodd:

A top female entertainment executive says "it's not a coincidence that these retro shows are appearing at the same time men are confused about who to be. A lot of women are making more money and getting more college degrees. The traditional roles of dominant and submissive roles are reversed in many cases. Everything was clearer in the '60s."
