For All Mankind S2E10 Review: “The Gray”

For All Mankind

So it all comes down to this. We review the season finale of “For All Mankind,” which puts the fate of the world in the crucible and makes us ponder the power of individual decisions when great systems seem intent on destroying one another. In addition to the dramatic life-and-death decisions, the plants at the bar are dead, Kelly has finished her essay, and we’re given a tantalizing look at what the 1990s might bring. Onward to season three!

Like any good (comic book) character, we're back! It was simply too much fun to recap WandaVision, so Lisa Schmeiser, Don Melton, and Kelly Guimont have returned to dig into the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Snowman Soldier.

For All Mankind S2E6 Review: “Best-Laid Plans”

For All Mankind

At last, the Soviets. We loved this whole episode, from the pointed conversation about Laika to the docking system designed out of coasters. Who makes Houston’s best borscht? Who cares! Let’s have burgers and Jack Daniels! Just don’t tell the KGB.
