It's about 5 astronauts on the first mission to Mars. I'm 2 episodes in...I like the space stuff. I don't care much for the family drama at home.

I greatly enjoyed the space travel part, it was a fantastic show from the perspective of showing the trials and tribulations involved in that kind of journey.

But as the show went on, the family stuff in the background increasingly became the focus of the show to the point that it almost felt like This Is Us with space travel. And that’s just not what I was personally looking for in this show.

Watchable - yes.

Really good - no.

The daughter was annoying AF at times and I wanted to fast forward through her storylines.

I watched the first episode two nights ago, seemed decent enough, but last night I moved on to the Challenger docu-series instead.

I'll probably pick it back up, but I'm definitely more into the space travel aspect than the family drama, which seems to be the primary focus.

Finished the first season this week. Has NASA made a shittier spaceship? Could they have picked a crew with more drama? I have no problem with drama and story lines, but some of these seem forced.

They cheapened the family drama by re-using certain things. Like there’s only so many times you can cry about similar things.

Edit: That said, I finished it and didn’t hate it. I love space stuff

Not all strokes result in loss of speech.


My dad had a subarachnoid hemorrhage and was able to speak the same day, although it was definitely difficult and in a whisper. Not at all unlike it was shown



We are enjoying it three episodes in. Nothing groundbreaking but the production quality and acting have been good so far, and the Lost style flashbacks to flesh out the characters have been nicely done imo.


The space walking and travel scenes are actually really impressive for a TV show imo

I couldn't make it past the 2nd episode, and I'm not one to give up on shows. Not that it was bad, but I was getting a soap opera in space vibe and I don't care for the untimely, random flashbacks.

Man I had no idea before going through it either. When I got the call that he had a stroke I was imagining the worst.

This was all many years ago, mind you, but man I broke into tears like a baby when he said my name when I got to his hospital room

I’m watching it. About 6 or so episodes in. I like it. Certainly odd that people that have been working together for 2 years have such a lack of knowledge of one another...

It was OK . . . but unrealistic. I can excuse the unrealistic stuff about space, but the NASA stuff was just crap.
