Are you kidding me? Tom Hanks, NASA, and an all-star cast of character actors and actresses?

Great mini-series. It has the feel of a docuseries, but the creators did take "artistic license" in making a compelling storyline. I watched this when it premiered on HBO, then bought it on VHS format. So great to have it online. I watch it whenever I want to be inspired.

Well done stories about an amazing achievement

The writing is good, keeps you interested while telling the story of Apollo program. Man going to the moon and what he did there sounds exciting. Historical movies usually sound dry but this series keeps it real.
