Unique and enlightening storytelling about underrated Apollo 7 mission
6 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, Mark Harmon carries this episode very well. Playing Wally Schirra, he really provides the insight into what happened behind the scenes to get the Apollo program running again after the Apollo 1 fire/tragedy. Harmon brings the perfect amount of candor to the delicate role he had to play here. The delivery of the episode in the faux documentary format was also brilliant by the writers, providing a different and refreshing perspective for the narrative. That style enables the episode to touch on some interesting and unsung subjects about the Apollo program as well: the computer programmers, Guenter Wendt's role, the Donn Eisele situation, etc. It's amazing how much the writers packed into this transformative episodes, making a relatively "boring" mission so exciting and real for the audience.
