Season 1
For All Mankind

Critics Consensus

Though it shoots for the moon and falls somewhere in orbit, For All Mankind's impressive vision of history has the potential for real liftoff if it leans into the things that set it apart instead of settling for more of the same.

Critic Reviews for For All Mankind Season 1

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (17)

The story becomes more exciting as it breaks open...what at first seems to wander a bit ultimately finds its target and lands.

Nov 1, 2019 | Full Review…

If every episode of "For All Mankind" reached the level of the first 20 minutes of the series premiere, I'd be hailing it as one of the outstanding shows of the year.

Nov 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Even walking a different path, "For All Mankind" still finds ways to take one step forward and a giant leap back.

Top Critic

It begins with an interstellar plot twist that you can see coming, but still knocks you flat, and though at first there's a lot of all-American whooping and machismo, it soon becomes a more thoughtful analysis of American exceptionalism.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

For All Mankind deftly blends fictional and historical characters... The series also does a good job of portraying outdated attitudes and environments while viewing them through a modern lens, imbuing things with abundant contemporary resonances.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

For a series about a battle of innovation, as fueled by brilliant minds and wounded egos, For All Mankind feels too slack.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

This effective series comes to life when it focuses on the training of the future publicists and the development of this unprecedented space race. [Full Review in Spanish]

Nov 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is straightforward and Joel Kinnaman ("Altered Carbon") is well-cast as an astronaut, but it's pretty slow to get going.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It has no new insights on the Cold War, or the Soviets, who remain a faceless, threatening presence off-screen. And its depiction of female astronaut candidates lacks bite.

Nov 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Sneakily titled and surprisingly engaging, For All Mankind is the dark horse in Apple's first wave of original content.

Nov 6, 2019 | Full Review…

It's an exciting idea, and continues to keep For All Mankind as a show that idealistically marches forward at a brisk pace and leaves open where it goes next.

Oct 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In the early episodes, one may repeatedly find their mind wandering. However, over the course of the five episodes, the show's slow assemblage of changes starts to find their advantage. Showrunner Ron Moore has been here before, and his confidence shows.

Audience Reviews for For All Mankind: Season 1

  • 10h ago
    Each episode seems like a little standalone story, some of these are amazing, others less interesting but always entertaining. They all connect together by a primary cast of characters and common mission. Ultimately it turns out this format works and is fascinating to watch! Although it does feel a little weird to be watching something that feels like it's telling a true story when In fact it's just a couple degrees off from true history. Probably no more than other shows though which claim to be holding more firmly to history. Kind of ironic.

    This show has been getting better and better every episode. Please take the time to let this slow burn ignite your engines. I absolutely love it.

    Amazing show, the critics have their heads up each other's asses for hating on it. Wish I could binge though. God damn Apple.
  • 2d ago
    So lame. Overly simplistic, and pandering at it's finest. This series doesn't get made 3 years ago, or 3 years from now

    who f'ing cares. seriously Apple this is what you are paying for. Looks nice but there is nothing in this story that's at all interesting.
  • 3d ago
    For All Mankind is a great series for everyone who have ever dreamed about flying to the Moon.
