In the early 1960s, U.S. fighter pilots are recruited to trial experimental aircraft and rockets, becoming America's first astronauts known as the Mercury Seven.
As part of the space race with the Soviet Union, these astronauts and their families become household names as they work towards humankind's monumental achievement of landing on the moon.
Based on Tom Wolfe's 1979 book of the same name.
I didn't love it, but it's better than another horrible reality show.
4 out of 5 from me.
