Goofs

In part 6 "Mare Tranquilitatis" during the landing sequence, there was no radio transmission delay between the capsule and Houston. For example, when Armstrong asked Houston a question the response came back almost immediately. A round-trip radio signal across the 240,000-mile distance would have a lag of close to 3 seconds. This was even mentioned by Gene Krantz earlier in the program. See more »

They don't come any better than this...
7 June 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I'll be brief because this series speaks well for itself--especially on DVD. To the jaded it may feel guilty of many things: romanticism, idealism, patriotism (or jingoism, if you insist), but even if that were true it presents a series of stories that have never been told before. Perhaps in a hundred years the quaintness and primitiveness of what had to be done to visit our nearest neighbor, the moon, might be seen as amusing instead of inspiring--but I don't think so. See if you don't walk away feeling a little better after watching an episode or two, or all twelve. I dare you.

And don't think if you've seen Apollo 13 that you've seen it all. This series even makes the stories of the guys who built the lunar lander, the geologists who studied the moon rocks, and the wives of the astronauts as appealing and fulfilling as the triumphs and tragedies that are better known.
