“for all mankind” - streaming this fall on apple+

Recommended Posts

Ron D. Moore doing Man in the High Castle but 20 years later during the Space Race? 

Okay!  Joel Kinnaman is now a Hulu show away from the cycle (Hanna - Amazon; Altered Carbon - Netflix; For All Mankind - Apple TV+)

Ron D Moore is amazing.  I'm rewatching BSG with the wife(for the first time) and just can't believe how far ahead of everything that show was.  It's so good.  If this is anywhere close to that, it'll be great.

I’m a sucker for alt-history, period pieces, and Joel Kinnamon so this is catnip for me.

you sound like my sister, but her boxes are "time travel" and "romance" tied together with some sort of "mystery" element.

when the lakehouse came out she almost stopped breathing.

It's probably gonna suck, but it's kind of a Red Dawn of space entertainment, so I'll probably watch it eating Chee-tos and drinking Orange Crush.
What for they rob the title of the fucking fantastic real documentary about Apollo done in 1989?  That one made me cry - uh, for the right reasons.

Still, this is better than some 4th-round rehash of Ghostbusters made into a series or some shit.  So why not?

bump for the release of this, and apple+ streaming.

tepid reviews, but better than most of the apple shows dropping (most have gotten slammed).

first 3 available now, then weekly drop.  similar to how hulu does it.  newer trailer:

Watched episode one tonight. Loved it. Characters are well played. Alternate history where Russia lands on the moon first. 

We dropped Netflex because of the quality of shows. Added Apple tv today (7 day free trial) Lots of good shows, looks much better than Netflex

Not impressed. The other high profile Apple TV+ original, The Morning Show is getting murdered in reviews, too.

The Morning Show

That looked pretty bad. Just seems like overcasting for the sake of A listers without any chemistry or purpose.

Yea, it’s kind of shocking how badly some of these reviews are for Apple’s initial release of shows.  You would have thought a quarter of a trillion in cash reserves would have allowed them to money-whip any show script they wanted to ensure the launch was a successful one.  I guess not   

That said, I watched Ep. 1 of this show yesterday and really enjoyed it.

That’s a bold statement my friend.

Didn’t think I would enjoy a story about alternate history of the space race — 1st episode has me hooked though. Also liked 1st episode of Dickinson. Pretty young adult/WB slant to it, but weirdly funny show to me.

I was disappointed to see he’s in this. He’s a bad actor and made Altered Carbon unwatchable for me.

I'd seen the trailer for this a month back or so, but did not know about the female slant.  Ugh, another story that has to be up to the minute movement motivated.  How bout "Hey you went to the moon? So we're gonna go to fucking Mars man!"  It's all fiction anyways, 

so tired of this PC shit.  Can't wait for Indiana Jane.

Martha Higareda in S1Ep5 would like to have a word with you in a sexy Mexican accent.

I think he did the best he could with an awful script for Altered Carbon. He's much better in this show. Much closer to his performance in the Killing which I enjoyed.

i finally watched the pilot, got to see my boy make his big speech.  that shit was intense.  it's been renewed but he's not going to be in s2, because he's playing chris kraft in "the right stuff" for nat-geo, along with patrick adams, aaron staton, jake mcdorman, and some other familiar faces.  they're in orlando shooting s1 right now.

i know we have some space race nerds on here like @RamjetFDO - you'll be happy to know they have it pitched as a 4 season show covering mercury/gemini/apollo.  starts in 2020.

I finished it.  I really liked it.  I think everyone should have a chance to get drunk on the moon.  I also finished The Morning Show and I liked it too, so maybe I just have low standards.  I'm running out of shit to watch I just resorted to watching the Warrior Nun on Netflix.

The moon scenes were great and I agree getting drunk on the moon would be awesome. Although I would probably lose my shit looking at earth in the distance.

The reflection shots of the astronaut visors in silence of space were pretty eery, especially the Soviet encounter.

Watching that Season 2 trailer, they aren't fucking around with the tension.

That was another thing about the series, the tension was convincing. There were numerous times where I had an "oh shit" moment throughout the season. Definitely better than the typical space movie where the situations are predictable.

When you need to "check back in" to history, Mission Control on Netflix is an excellent documentary movie (1.7 hours) on Apollo's Mission Control. Apollo was an amazing success for NASA. Houston worked problems well. (RIP Apollo I crew).

I mean, the men of the show definitely weren't as interesting as the women, except for Gordo and Deke.  Cobb, Tracy and Danielle were obviously the best parts.  Joel Cinnamon definitely kinda was meh throughout. 

The gay/lesbian storyline - meh.  And that's coming from me.  Did like the Montrose namedrop, though!
