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.

    A piece of fiction that feels like it could've been part of history. And while it gets off to a slow start, it definitely sticks the landing, even for non-space-nerds.

    La meilleure série que j'ai jamais vu. Tout est là, une histoire prenante et bien écrite, des personnages intéressants dont les histoires sont entremêlées, le souci du détail et de la cohérence, des acteurs phénoménaux, bref tous les ingrédients pour en faire le pilier de la série d'alter-his qu'elle, si elle ne l'est pas déjà, deviendra bientôt.

    It is an incredibly boring and slow moving soap opera. I came into it expecting another twisted history show like Man In The High Castle, what I got was a set of boring relationship problems. The fact these people are astronauts has minimal to do with the storyline, and the Russians landing on the moon first has had almost no butterfly effect on the world. Basically this show completely fails as a twisted history show, it completely fails as an astronaut show, and it is nothing but a boring soap opera. If you like melodrama, then sure this show is for you. If you like history, space, actual drama, this show is not for you.

    The start of this season was strong and it had an interesting and compelling story. However, since we live in ''modern'' and woke SJW times, this show started to be tainted with all the ''representation'' of lesbian couple which had no intricate character development, very shallow done. Also a lot of times women in this show act like superior to men, more often behave to them like chimpanzees than real coworkers. It's such a shame especially how much this show had great potential especially coming from the executive producer of Ronald D. Moore a Star Trek veteran who made great and compelling episodes in TNG, DS9 and VOY... Very big let down.

    ) Good show but I find it odd they take every opportunity to try to represent the Republicans as opposed to equal rights measures when historically they proposed it. I get it's an alternate timeline but to take time out of an episode to try to push a distorted series of historical events is a classic example of brainwashing.

    While being an exciting and stunning start in a fascinating history sci-fi world FOR ALL MANKIND Season 1 is just far enough from our reality to enjoy its plot and it is just near enough to seem a realistic alternative timeline. The brilliant use of bombastic shots of actions in space mixed with original real NASA video material really sells the solution. The characterwriting and brilliant cast are able to give every character the nessecary depth. Only the sometimes unrealisticly unlucky problems might remind of the fact that FOR ALL MANKIND is after all - just fiction.

    They push the social justice agenda way to much which takes away from the overall show but the plot and execution make up for it.
  • Oct 04, 2021
    Wanted it to be exciting, but seems a bit stereotyped and a very slow build without any exciting evolution. Not even good enough to have on in the background; just so slow I cannot waste any more time on it - hence 1 star. Could be good to help you fall asleep 💤

    The science fiction is weak, story lines unrealistic, acting horrible. Don't waste your time.
  • Aug 05, 2021
    While this is not necessarily a bad show, I can't really say it lived up to the hype. The premise instantly hooked me and I gotta say the beginning of the first episode truly caught my attention. But as the shows progresses it becomes quite clear that the writers are unable to top those first few moments. To start with the good: the show quite faithfully recreates the visuals and aesthetics of the era: clothes and cars especially are great. The leads all do a fine job and the special effects on the rockets are pretty good. You feel for the cast and most of them are somewhat compelling to watch. Now for the issues: -The practical effects/special effect teams don't seem handle microgravity or reduced lunar gravity. Outside of their spacesuits the actors never look like they're on the moon: they do not move right and there is often few to no objects moving around reminding us that we're not on earth. When compared to The Expanse the difference is night and day. It also doesn't help that the set used for the interior of Jamestown essentially looks like a cardboard studio straight out of Stargate SG-1 season 1. -Many of the storylines are either not elaborated upon or useless to the main plot. Coral Peña as Aleida Rosales the Mexican dreamer girl is given practically nothing to work with, and her character is essentially wasted. The same goes for Edwin Hodge as Clayton Poole: we get one scene where he explains he has PTSD and then he vanishes for the rest of the season… It's especially jarring considering how much Danielle Poole was supposed to worry about him. Yet we see her without a care in the world back in mission control. The show essentially forgot his character existed. -Entirely too much time is focused on human drama on earth that has nothing to do with the space program and only distracts us from the main plot instead of building upon it. This is especially true of Shane Baldwin's death which feels random and manipulative. -The political aspect of the show is essentially wasted: we never hear about Washington's goals beside a vague prospect of militarization of the moon and the use of the program to deflect attention from their PR mishaps. -After the landing of Anastasia Belikova on the moon the soviets essentially vanish from the show until they introduce Mikhail Vasiliev in the last episode (and he pretty much does nothing meaningful to the plot). It's a real missed opportunity: we see no joint missions, little comparisons between the progress of the two agencies and essentially no political or philosophical debates. Overall, I'm a bit disappointed I expected a mix between the Martian and Gravity with a focus on philosophy and politics and essentially got Desperate Housewives with a rocket launch in the background every now and then instead. I can't say that I'm impressed.
