ALL IN is the perfect title for this week’s episode of FOR ALL MANKIND. It showed, with clarity, just how committed all three teams are in their race to Mars. 

The one, disturbing, and sad reveal is the consequences for their choices made years earlier. There is no turning back. The three teams have now made their selections. Morals be damned and the future is in for a bumpy ride.  

The problem with this installment was the pacing. It was just slow. This would have been much more exciting had they made it 30 minutes instead the usual hour length. This series has been very up and down with its emotional pull on the viewers. In the end, the scenarios uncovered were necessary for the story to move forward.

For me, the most exciting section was the final minutes, but it took too much time to get to that moment. FOR ALL MANKIND is leading us on a very direct path. Sometimes I just enjoy getting there sooner rather than later, but I am still ALL IN. It is available to stream on APPLE tv+.
