A thrilling pilot
7 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For its time this is an outstanding episode about the exploration of space. Not only do we see the square jawed American heroes but the families bravely standing behind them supporting them in their achievements. The matching of stock footage and purpose shot film inside the control room is outstanding and at times it is easy to forget we are watching a fictional TV show and not a documentary from the era. When the central drama unfolds the resemblance to the actions and reactions around the world show an uncanny likeness to scenes witnessed when the real life Apollo 13 drama unfolded. Anyone with either an interest in the early days of TV science fiction or the beginnings of the space program will enjoy this series immensely
