For All Mankind
« on: Mar 20, 2020, 11:04:31 PM »
 New US drama. The set-up being that the Russians got to the Moon first, not the US. Which matters hugely, politically with Nixon in power. It sounded interesting so I downloaded the series..Which I may be about to delete. It's set in 1969-74-ish which makes the story line even less likely but, in spite of the politically correct stuff, it's one of those productions which portray all the men as macho fools who's first and only recourse is to get drunk and the women as noble paragons of their sex, silently suffering then besting their one-dimensional husbands, and I've seen and heard enough so it's adios. A shame cos there's the makings of a good story if told more fairly. >:( >:(

Thanks for the warning zoony. I too may have been tempted. The way things are going it seems possible that most new stuff won't be worth the effort of downloading.

Luckily, no effort involved..As you say, it's getting harder to find anything worth watching. God forbid we should be left to our own devices.. ;D
