Watching this miniseries is the next best thing to actually being on the moon. I loved it.

The footage presented in this series is remarkable! Each time I watch it, I feel as if I am there in the 1960s living through the inauguration of the U.S. Space Program.

When I saw this miniseries I thought about getting it because I will watch anything that has to do with space. But when I saw it was made by Tom Hanks and Ron Howard I said "I am definintly getting this!" I got it and love it! It really makes you feel like you were there and makes you wish you saw the real thing!

Each episode in this series is a unique drama about an individual incident or aspect of the Apollo space program. The cast is very well chosen, and there is some good acting and and solid directing. Not all episodes are equal, in my opinion, but the good ones are outstanding. My favorite is "Spider," the episode about the engineers and designers of the lunar module (LEM). I love the way that this series does not just focus on the astronauts, but makes heroes out of the nerdy engineers, the scientists in "Galileo was Right," as well as the astronauts' wives in 'The Original Wives' Club."

I WAS DELIGHTED TO FIND THIS ITEM WHEN SHOPPING FOR ANOTHER ITEM AS A GIFT FOR A FRIEND. NOT ONLY DID THIS COUNT IN THE PROMOTIONAL SALE, BUT I WAS VERY GRATIFIED TO FIND THE PRICE HAD BEEN GREATLY REDUCED RECENTLY. THE ORIGINAL PRICE EXCEEDED $100, WHICH IS WHY I HADN'T GOTTEN IT UP TO THIS POINT. I CONFESS THAT I HAVEN'T WATCHED IT AS YET, BUT AM VERY ANXIOUS TO DO SO, AS THIS WAS AN INSPIRATION THAT OCCURRED TO TOM HANKS AFTER HIS ROLE IN THE FILM, "APOLLO 13". BEING BORN INTO THE SPACE AGE, A MONTH AFTER CHUCK YEAGER BROKE THE SOUND BARRIER IN THE X-1 ROCKET PLANE, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED WITH FLIGHT, BOTH AIRCRAFT AND SPACECRAFT, AND TRIPS TO BOTH OF THE AIR AND SPACE MUSEUMS IN WASHINGTON D.C. HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A PLEASURE FOR ME, AS WELL AS OTHER RELATED PURSUITS.
