| Amazing
This series is simply amazing. It is well acted, well written, and you can't beat the subject matter. I have never seen a better show. Everyone in this series is wonderful and the dialog is so crisp. It is a great tribute to an important era in American history. I recommend it for everyone.

Trivia

Three actors who played astronauts also played astronauts in Apollo 13 (1995), but they all played different astronauts from the ones they had before. David Andrews played Frank Borman (Apollo 8) in the miniseries, but Pete Conrad (Apollo 12) in the movie. Ben Marley played Roger Chaffee (Apollo 1, died in the fire) in the miniseries, but John Young (Apollo 10, Apollo 16, Shuttle) in the movie, and Brett Cullen played Dave Scott (Apollo 15) in the miniseries, but Jack Lousma (CAPCOM during Apollo 13, slated for Apollo 20 which was cancelled, flew Skylab 3 in 1973) in the movie.

Neil Armstrong: That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.


Goofs

In the "1968" chapter, we see a TV reporter broadcasting with a massive picture-window view of the Saturn 5, and then feeling the shock wave from engine ignition just before the window falls in. The view is from 1/4 mile SE of pad 39A, a dangerously close point for anyone. The press site is 3.1 miles west of the pad. Also, the incident happened to Walter Cronkite at the Apollo 4 launch, Nov. 9, 1967. The launch depicted here (coinciding with the King assassination) is Apollo 6 on Apr. 4, 1968.


Alternate Versions

On the 1999 UK VHS version, Episode 7 (That's All There Is) had three uses of strong language cut out by the BBFC in order to avoid getting a 15 rating and to keep the episode in line with the rest of the series at a PG rating. When the series was re-submitted in 2006 for the DVD release, the episode was passed uncut (and with a 15 rating).
