An essential companion to Apollo 13
29 December 2018 | by paulpelleritoSee all my reviews

Produced by Ron Howard, this episode is essential viewing for those who enjoyed the film Apollo 13. Serving best as a companion piece to that film rather than an episode of this series, the episode gives a different point of view of the true events of the mission.
