For All Mankind: Alternate History Done Well

For All Mankind

I binged For All Mankind not long ago and found it intriguing and interesting. It’s an alternate history of the moon race where the Russians get to the moon first and the US plays catch-up.

The alternate history is interesting but not spectacular. Given that in this version it spurs both countries to put bases on the moon, one almost wishes this had been true.
