    Just started the 2nd episode. I’m hooked. The concept is very interesting. USSR beats us to the moon. Space race never ends.

    Interesting but a little too "talky" for my taste. Still watching after three though.

    I was going to start a thread on this over the weekend and never made it, thanks for starting it.
    As a spacegeek with a preexisting thing for alternate realities AND 60's period pieces , this is pretty much nails my niche demographic to a T and as expected I binged all 3 episodes and really like where they're taking it.
    I didn't find it at all "too talky" since they had a huge amount of exposition to plow through, I don't view talky shows as a negative, I view them as telling a richer more detailed tale.

    Error in Ep 2...Funk #49 wasn’t released by the James Gang until 1970. The episode used it as a backdrop to the Sept. ‘69 launch of Apollo 12.

    The first Error I noticed was that the Russians landed on the moon.

    Obviously, the James Gang was so freaked out by the Russians beating us to the moon, they released the song sooner.

    Did anyone else think they’d lose Apollo 11? They fooled me.

    They should have went hard, and lost Apollo 11 and had to deal with Collins staying up there, I felt it was sort of a chicken out.

    Fooled me too and I was surprised by how emotional I found those scenes. Good pilot, best of the Apple TV + shows in my opinion but I won't be watching... too much TV to watch and I think I've reached my limit on the different streaming services.

    I really enjoyed the 4th Episode, show gets better with each episode I think.

    I wondered what they were going to do with Apollo 13, and the answer seems to have been to just not mention it, in an episode that focused on the women astronauts' training and the run-up to the Apollo 15 launch -- presumably, in this timeline, the Apollo 13 mission went fine and allowed NASA to continue on their accelerated schedule of Apollo launches.

    I bet Apollo 15 is going to be this show's Apollo 13.

    I just binged all of the episodes yesterday and I have found my favorite show on AppleTV+. I almost wish that I had waited until the season run was over so I could watch them all at once.

    Yeah, this show is amazing. I guess when Ronald Moore is tethered to some semblance of reality, it overcomes his storytelling weaknesses (i.e., his tendency to just make ^#%@ up as it suits him, regardless of whether it fits in with anything else).

    Enjoying it. I wasn’t feeling it midway through the first episode for many reasons but stuck it out thanks to this thread. Too many TCFers here like it so I multitasked through episode 1, gained interest in episode 2, and almost caught up.
