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 (51) | Top Critics (18)

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…

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

Top Critic

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 is an exceptionally strong series, and stands out as a beacon that hope still has its place on television.

Oct 30, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

For All Mankind lures you in with familiarity and gives you a thoughtful and nerve-wracking 10 episodes for your commitment.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

For All Mankind is a flashy prestige series for Apple TV+, especially with the name recognition of someone like Moore behind it. But the finished piece is too overstuffed with ideas - some of which are great! - to do any of them justice

Nov 5, 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…

Hopeful enough to be watchable, gritty enough to be engaging and fantastic enough to inspire daydreams, For All Mankind really seems to have the right stuff.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The episodes are inordinately long and the storylines aren't related in any meaningful thematic way. [Full Review in Spanish]

Nov 21, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | 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…

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.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

When For All Mankind brings us directly into moments of the dangerous, unpredictable and awe-inspiring reality of space travel and the unvarnished lives of the people who made it possible it captures something beautiful.

Audience Reviews for For All Mankind: Season 1

  • 6d ago
    The show is very well made, and the premise of the first episode will get you hooked. The characters develop well, and most of the actors deliver good performances. The biggest problem with the show is that by the third episode it gets more and more charged with contemporary social commentaries, and they end up feeling a little out of place during the late 70's (even for an alternative past).

    Really enjoyed this. Loved the blend of factual and fictional storylines, plus the character development and human side of the NASA space program at an interesting time in history. Beautifully filmed too I thought. Looking forward to the next series.
  • Jan 04, 2020
    Starts a bit slow but truly comes together not long after. can't wait for season 2
  • Jan 04, 2020
    Starts out a bit slow, but soon it picks up. For me it was like watching the future that should have happened, but didn't. Such a great adventure ride!
  • Jan 02, 2020
    I would definitely recommend this for fans of the 60/70s space program or alternative present science fiction. The concept is fantastic and the show runners do a solid job of balancing the personal and political aspects of the story in a way that feels very relevant. I was was quite moved and inspired by many scenes. Done by the creators of the Battlestar Galactica reboot, this show has more of the uplifting "humanist" tones of Star Treck than the much darker BSG. Certainly not one of the great shows of our time (BSG was), For All Mankind is on my list to watch a season 2.

    Such a great spin on "space race show" we have seen a million times, Ronald D. Moore makes this story into can't look away television, along with great music and amazing casting it's my favorite show on tv right now. It's probably going to be overshadowed by the morning show but I think this is a true flagship of Apple TV
  • Dec 30, 2019
    Interesting, fun concept with some room for improvement
  • Dec 29, 2019
    Interesting alternative universe and great visuals! Pretty good for one of the first series from Apple.
  • Dec 27, 2019
    You know, I did not expect much from this show... but i watched it today and its my favorite show of the year, I can't wait until the second season. We have some great characters. The second trailer was not representative of the show, and clearly episode 3 was designed to placate the critics who have gone so woke they don't have credibility anymore. Seriously folks, 9/10 best show of 2019 watch it i highly recommend it
  • Dec 26, 2019
    Once you wrap your head around the alternate reality of the space race, it's easy to become hooked. A few characters were over developed, but over all story I enjoyed. Looking forward to season 2
