    Put me in the "Ed is stupid for putting Gordo on the mission" camp.

    It's one thing to do it for Danielle (even though her previous status wasn't made clear) but Gordo is not up to both psychologically and physically.

    He got 280 REM, which is only sometimes fatal. She would have gotten considerably less, given that his exposure was significantly longer. Apparently she didn't get enough to even show symptoms, since she seems to be getting away with it as far as the flight surgeons go. I'm guessing her exposure was at the "cancer some day" level.

    It wasn't obvious enough for some people here on TCF.

    Why would you (Win Joy Jr) say here exposure was "considerably less"? She only went out right as the storm hit. I suppose his body draped over her back shielded her -- is that what you meant?

    And, yes, Ed should be fired for putting a middle-aged, overweight, depressed drunk on a mission. Danielle should have slugged him when he announced it.

    But, hey, it's a scripted TV show, not a documentary (I know you're all thinking documentaries are most definitely scripted).

    I'm just surprised either astronaut isn't showing more symptoms. 280 REM is definitely in the "definitely going to show symptoms of radiation sickness" range.

    I thought Molly was showing symptoms...a little wobbly when she was walking if I recall.

    I mean “unable to hide” symptoms like sunburn, puking, and the like.

    280 REM will also result in a lot of hair loss.

    And she is avoiding the light-wearing sunglasses all the time-the light seemed to bother her tremendously upon returning to Earth-I think she's going to go blind ...just a thought, not a spoiler..

    That's not exactly uncommon with the pilot crowd. :)

    I know, but they are showing her photophobia an awful lot-I think it's leading to something-mark my words!

    There was some seriously good acting when Ed found out his daughter wanted to go to Annapolis. Incredible scene.

    Yeah, that was my complaint about the series last year (and the similar Netflix series). I don't mind a little bit of that, but this whole episode was that. There's so much drama to be had without all of that. Hopefully moving forward they got most of this out of way and this episode just was setting up something that comes later.

    It's not that I hate character development. I actually appreciate it, especially in sci-fi. But I despise the cliches and tropes that accompany the human drama parts. Shane's death in season one was telegraphed way in advance. And the forthcoming US/USSR confrontation on the moon won't hold a candle to the Traci/Gordon dust-up. (strange that neither has addressed their alcoholisms)

    Is Tracy becoming Gordo or has she always been like that but tempered because of the kids?

    Who else saw the red light and said "Cylon!"?

    Not at all.

    Gordo is a working-class celebrity drunk. Tracy is becoming a Hollywood celebrity drunk.

    When I saw Tracy take a morning swig from the Michelob on the nightstand, I could almost taste that in my mouth.

    Some parts of the 80s I don't miss.

    What, no deepfake Pat Sajak making a quip about the space program?

    (I'm not familiar enough with identifying "Wheel of Fortune" from 15-second clips to know if that really was an episode it purported to be -- a 1983 episode from the syndicated version -- but it did look correct.)
