Season two of the space drama picks up a decade later in 1983. It's the height of the Cold War and tensions between the United States and the USSR are at their peak. Ronald Reagan is President and the greater ambitions of science and space exploration are at threat of being squandered as the US and Soviets go head to head to control sites rich in resources on the moon. The Department of Defense has moved into Mission Control, and the militarization of NASA becomes central to several characters' stories: some fight it, some use it as an opportunity to advance their own interests, and some find themselves at the height of a conflict that may lead to nuclear war.
For All Mankind seems interested in exploring the ugly and bloody legacy of post-World War II USA ... But the messaging on For All Mankind season 2 is a bit muddled, almost as if it's afraid of alienating its primary audience: Americans.
It's much more action-packed and emotionally rewarding than its predecessor, and clearly a transition to a much bigger battlefield in an American that is so like -- and so simultaneously unlike -- our own.
The series continues to excel at balancing its sprawling ensemble of characters, all of whom are driven by a dizzying array of motivations, with the precise textural demands of a well-dressed period piece.
