Yeah agree, me and the missus were on the edges of our seats during the lead up to the dirt in the eye.That finale was phenomenal. Must have got a bit of dirt in my eye towards the end...
Third season has been confirmed and I cannot wait!
the latter Margo is way too smartYeah agree, me and the missus were on the edges of our seats during the lead up to the dirt in the eye.
Intrigued to find out what’s in store for Margo
will she fall for it or could there end up being a double bluff scenario in the works?
Yeah, it does seem crazy thatthis wouldn't result in war or, that suddenly the Russians have M16's and not even AK's. for that matter.
I think there were two or three clinging onto mate who closed the door but again, yup, that's one strong guy. I would've expected some emergency automatic door closure/blast shield in place but no. That seems mad in itself in the circumstances.
Their Pathfinder has nuclear powered engines so I assume it can fly back and forth no probs.
It now begs the question of whether the Pathfinder crew are going to go dark here and blow the Russian base or threaten to if they don't get out...
Just watched the season finale and really enjoyed it.
I kinda gave them that one, it was height of the cold war sort of stuff so yeah fair enough.Agreed, they pretty much redeemed themselves with the season finale.
Just one fly in the ointment IMHO. While the deaths of Gordo and Tracy were as heroic as they were tragic, the entire sub-plot sealing their fate involving the secret second reactor which only the military knew about just seemed rather forced and lazy to me.
When the trailer dropped last year and it showed aI'd assumed that the guns had been delivered to the Russians by the Buran, but on reflection that wouldn't have been possible since IIRC Buran launched during episode 9. Also the Americans clearly believed the Russians were already armed, leading to the shooting of the Cosmanauts at the end of episode 8. Did I miss something important in an earlier episode?
RE: Pathfinder. Yes, being powered by a NERVA engine it would have no problem making the journey to and from the Moon. In fact in one of the earlier episodes they were discussing using it to go to Mars. My point though was about the gen 1 Space Shuttle, which in our reality at least, is incapable of leaving Earth orbit.
It was mentioned during episode 10 that the Shuttle is refuelled in orbit before journeying to the Moon, but even if you filled the entire cargo bay with extra fuel thanks for the OMS ALL of that fuel would be required for the TLI burn. There would be no fuel left to perform a LOI burn on reaching the Moon. Unless the Shuttle could somehow be refuelled again en route all you'd achieve is a lunar flyby, much like Apollo 13 did.
Or am I being too picky?
Scott Manley has a lot to answer for , being serious though I find him excellent in the way he presentsWhen the trailer dropped last year and it showed abut I let it go as it was a cool visual.shuttle near the moon I thought 'hmm ok' and Scott Manley did a good video on why it wouldn't be possible with a shuttle to reach the moon even if it refueled in orbit with the entire cargo bay packed with fuel tanks
