    • About the program

      It had great writing, casting and hairstyling.
    • I thought that this was simply inspirationally written, and was extremely entertaining! Watched every episode on holidays in Germany!

      Thoughtful and really worth the money that I paid importing this into Australia! I have the European box set which is in dual languages, and the original english is naturally the best - I could watch this over and over and over - shame that there are other great shows out there!
    • Without a doubt, this is the ultimate experience for anyone with a remote interest in the space program.

      I've just recently started watching this series but i was hooked from the opening scenes.

      From the Earth to the Moon chronicles, of course, that most epic of all journeys: that from our own planet to the moon. This is something that has gone relatively unrecognized within history classes, and that near omission is a crying shame. Everything that was put into something of this magnitude adds up to be one of the greatest stories telling of a nearly unrivaled triumph.

      If you cannot get to watch this amazing series then like me get it on DVD, set a clear weekend aside and watch with ore.moreless
    • i learned a lot

      this show was just as informative as it was entertaining. i never knew that much about the early space programs until i watched this series. it was a very special thing for the producers to do. not very often does a show come along and be this good. the cast was formed of some of the best supporting and leading actors of the day.
    • Brilliant Mini-Series

      Tom Hanks' love letter to the space program is a brilliant piece of television. Broken down into twelve, one-hour segments, this mini-series is visually impressive, intelligently written and beautifully acting by an impressive and mammoth cast. Mr. Hanks was the executive producer, directed the first episode, co-wrote some of the episodes and introduced each segment. He flashed his clout to get the series done and it is a true masterpiece.
