Trivia

The opening scene of the episode, showing Alan Shepard (Jake McDorman) and his backup, John Glenn (Patrick J. Adams), on bunk beds in the same room the night before Shepard's flight, may be a homage to the opening scene of Gagarin. Pervvy v kosmose (2013), which shows Yuri Gagarin and his backup, Gherman Titov, in bunk beds in the same room the night before Gagarin's Vostok 1 flight. See more »

Quotes

John Glenn: You're not?
Alan Shepard: Nope. I'm going to be the first man in space.

User Reviews

 
Dull drama about the true events of the first astronauts.
9 October 2020 | by cruise01See all my reviews

2.5 out of 5 stars.

Boring drama series with the first episode showing a group of military pilots entering the training program.

Characters are forgettable. Script is dull. And direction is slow moving.
