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…

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…

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

Top Critic

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…

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.

Nov 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | 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…

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

Audience Reviews for For All Mankind: Season 1

  • Mar 22, 2020
    Very well done alternate history fiction. Has occasional slow moments that are very well contrasted with scenes that have you on the edge of your seat with every new development. Looking forward to a few more seasons!
  • Mar 21, 2020
    Amazing! Extremely realistic; fans of hard sci-fi with some good human elements mixed in will love this show. Love the realism.
  • Mar 14, 2020
    Engaging and (alt)historically accurate, For All Mankind is a thoughtful portrayal of what America is though a musing on what it could have become.
  • Feb 27, 2020
    This is arguably one the best TV show of 2019. Great soundtrack, engaging story, great visuals, it's got everything. Seriously Apple have a gem here and I don't think they marketed it enough.
  • Feb 14, 2020
    It took a while to get going but finished very strong. I really enjoyed the show!
  • Feb 11, 2020
    I'm a fan. Hardcore binged this. Spaceflight, great female characters rooted in history, important issues addressed, (even in an alternative history context), and a look at what could have been… I'm excited for a second season and a bit perplexed why this show hasn't gotten more press. With AppleTV+ all I hear is "The Morning Show" this and "The Morning Show" that. Give this a shot. I'm glad I did. It was actually the first AppleTV+ program I watched, enjoying the 1st two free episodes before starting a subscription. I was hooked after that.

    It's amazing! After a slow start on episode 1, the show went on a crescent till the absolutely fantastic finale! A must see for everyone who loves space travel! Counting the days for season 2!!!
  • Jan 30, 2020
    Great story and visualization. Red moon.
  • Jan 22, 2020
    Love the alternate reality aspect of the show! The soundtrack is incredible! If you are interested in space and a bit of history, I recommend checking it out!
  • Jan 21, 2020
    Great series loved all of it! I hope a new season is released.
