I´ve been interested in the space race for a very long time and seen about every movie and documentary about it. Nevertheless this show was well worth watching because it tells storys that haven´t been told. It´s those storys about the people and what went on behind the headlines. Mixed with original footage this show gives an insight at a time of great struggle but also great hope.
The entire space programme dramatized. It deserved it's Golden Globe at the time as it really wanted to make a miniseries that told everything about NASA's moon history. Hell, it even had a show about the women waiting on their astronaut husbands and an entire show devoted to the filming of "A Trip to the Moon" that inspired people to go to the moon. Phenomenal show.
It's like Band of Brothers in space, it really is an amazing show. [11/10]
I am Sophie and this is my website.
A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.
But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…
I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
