Most of the characters are fictional, but there are cameo appearances by some of the prominent nuclear scientists who laboured (under considerable pressure) to produce the weapons that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (and whose successors are contained in nuclear arsenals around the world today). For those of us who are fascinated by WWII, by the interaction among the military, the intelligence community and a bunch of fairly naïve, if brilliant, academics, and by the terrain of New Mexico [admittedly, this is a niche market].... this series is one of the best in recent memory.
Not living in the US, I have not been able to view Season 2 on TV (I would expect that it would interest only a very small market in Australia). I am waiting for Amazon to release it on video, and I will order immediately. I must find out what has happened to Frank, how Charlie will fare in his new role, whether Meeks will be discovered, whether Charlie's wife Abby will return to Boston .... and, of course, what project will be made on production of "the gadget".
