Finally got to watch “For All Mankind” season 1… well, Ronald Moore sure is consistent with his regular soap opera vibe.
Or rather, alcohol+tobacco opera — the amount of drinking and smoking easily surpasses the amount of RP-1 burning and space flying.
It ticks all the currently requisite boxes — female workaholism, mental health, gender issues, political corruption… but seems kinda hollow and strained, an “Ad Astra Longa”. 🤦🏻♂️
PS: Cinematography is very “meh”.
