This series is a must watch! Just as Band of Brothers was made off of the coattails of Saving Private Ryan, this series was created based on the production of the movie Apollo 13. This show documents the entire space program from its inception to it's completion.
If you want to watch something that is both entertaining and educational then look no further. This show does great at creating a fascinating story to follow while being extremely historically accurate and educational. Oh and the beginning narrations by Tom Hanks are a huge plus.
