I set the bar too high.
13 October 2020 | by dwojcik-53563See all my reviews

I was hoping for less "Hollywood" glitz. Same old and tired interpersonal themes. I'll watch the series because it is "the right stuff". I've only watched 2 episodes and often these series can find their way as the story progresses. I'd still recommend The Right Stuff. The acting is pretty decent.
