Astronaut Wives Club

Rachel's Rating: Pan!
I'm skeptical of any show or movie with "Wives Club" in the title (exception: The First Wives Club). At least these people are pretty though.

As America's Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty.

So the creators of House and Breaking Bad are making a show with Kumar (Kal Penn), Dean Winters (yum) AND Josh Duhamel? Sold.

I know! I know! Yes, this franchise needs to die, but I really like Patricia Arquette and the crossover episodes have been pretty good.

I usually can't say no to Terrence Howard, but this seems a bit airless.

Craig Robinson is really funny, but NBC is already showing a lack of faith in this show by continuing to postpone it. Not encouraging.
