Uplifting Entertaining
Review by Jim M. on 09/20/21 review stating Uplifting Entertaining
This documentary tells the uplifting story of Apollo 13. The use of film, photos and interviews is all that could be expected, and made for a great show. I have always been a fan of the US space program, and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this program.

Great NOVA about getting Apollo 13 home
Review by David on 09/20/21 review stating Great NOVA about getting Apollo 13 home
I have a been a fan of NOVA for 20+ years, and this is one of their best. Ninety minutes of how Apollo 13 went terribly wrong and how, against all odds, the crew and ground staff solved unsolvable problem after problem. Gives an old pessimist like me optimism that people can solve really hard problems when they need to. I bought it to show my son and teenage daughter that quitting is not an option is a good attitude to take when facing important, hard life problems. They enjoyed the show too.

Brings back memories of when this country rose above petty politics and showed bravery and commitment.

This Nova was a Staple of My Childhood
Review by James V. on 09/20/21 review stating This Nova was a Staple of My Childhood
We had this show taped on a VHS, and as a kid Id watch it over and over again. Such great interviews with the key players. Great overview of the space race and capturing the essence of the era as well as the details of the mission. Solid story telling. So excited to come across it here.

Great video
Review by Cbooth151 on 09/20/21 review stating Great video
This video could be considered very good. But, what makes it exceptional is the narrator, Will Lyman. He is simply the best at what he does, regardless of the topic.
