    Premise: “The first crewed mission to the Moon during the Space Race in the late 1960s was a success for NASA and the United States. This drama poses the question: “What if the Space Race had never ended?” In an alternate timeline, a Soviet cosmonaut, Alexei Leonov, becomes the first human to land on the Moon. This outcome devastates morale at NASA, but also catalyzes an American effort to catch up. With the Soviet Union emphasizing diversity by including a woman in subsequent landings, the US is forced to match pace, training women and minorities who were largely excluded from the initial decades of US space exploration.”

    Cast: Joel Kinnaman,  Michael Dorman, Sarah Jones, Shantel VanSanten, Jodi Balfour, and Wrenn Schmidt.

    I was saying the other day, that if more people were exposed to this show it would be an easy awards contender. I’m glad there’s a thread about it now, and just in time for the last two episodes of s2 that, if reviews are to be believed, are supposed to be explosive and two amazing hours of television.

    Joel Kinnaman ans Shantel VanSanten have the one scene in 2×03 that would be a perfect Emmy clip. My personal MVP of the season has been Michael Dorman. Sarah, Jodi, Sonya Walger and Krys Marshall have been excellent as well.

    This has become one of my favorite shows at the moment. Truly underrated. Even with a certain plot point that left me speechless.
    considering that Joel said that the real show doesn’t start till season 3. I can’t wait for last two episodes.
    This should really be in conversation for best cast at Sag.

    They already started filming Season 3.

    Critics were not lying. That was a amazing season finale. It deserved a nomination in Writing.

    For some reason this has never been on my radar despite the subject matter appealing to me. After hearing how good the finale was, I’m definitely going to catch up on it soon. Maybe it can challenge The Expanse for my favourite space show.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    So yes, if there was any doubt…after the season finale this show just delivered it should be getting awards. It was 1h20min and it flew by, the craft was impecable and the emotional impact was at an all time high.

    If and when this show eventually finds the critical acclaim it deserves (like The Americans, where the Emmys were four years late to take notice), I’ll just be mad that some performers won’t be there to be recognized. Won’t say who to avoid spoilers, but they knocked it out of the park, one of them in particular had a season arc that screams “Best supporting actor nominee”

    Criminally underrated show. TMS may be traditional “prestige” emmy bait, but FAM really delivers with the drama, storytelling, and the visuals especially. Bittersweet finale, but I loved it.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    Except for the Danny-Karen storyline. Wtf were they thinking when writing that? I’m fine with Karen and Ed having marriage troubles and her cheating, but not with her dead son’s childhood best friend. That’s too fucked up.

    Yeah, that’s the one storyline that was completely unnecesary and the season would have been better by omitting it. All the rest was great, so I’ll give them a pass.

    Apple tv+ should really get a Michael Dorman campaign rolling! I just found out he put on actual weight for the season and that’s the type of narrative voters love.
