For All Mankind (spoilers)


Anyone watching? On the new Apple platform. Fictional drama about the Apollo program, but with a twist.

SPOILER:
It opens with the whole world sitting down to watch the first moon landing--from the Russians, in June 1969.

I saw the first episode. Production values were fantastic, but it is ridiculously slow moving, IMO. Especially for a pilot.

Not to be confused with For All Mankind, a documentary account of the Apollo program with Brian Eno's Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks as the soundtrack.

The next two are the same way. But the moments of drama are very dramatic.

Since you asked...

Nope, not going to watch it. Looks stupid. Why should I care about people from a parallel universe?

Plus it will just remind me of the current state of the US space program.
