The Principal took her to a private room to watch her father's famous flight. The rest of the class watched the lift-off and flight in the homeroom. See more »

Overall a Powerhouse Drama
18 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Although in the beginning the pilot the show admittedly struggles to introduce each character of the ensemble cast, it only needs a few episodes to truly establish each in their own right. Other than that, the show masterfully weaves in the drama of personal struggle to find identity, a life left behind, remaining faithful throughout the struggles of fame and what that fame can do to a marriage, and the Cold War fever sickening the United States at the time. All the while carrying the theme of support and hope for the future. I will personally be tuning in to every episode of this show to see how the wives are doing.
