Based on a book which tells the true story of these women, this is my new favorite TV show. Yes, it's about the beginnings of the American space program and the women behind the men, but it's also about a very important time in American history, especially for women and people of color. A certain ex-hippie who is very dear to me used to say that I was born during the Summer of Love (not exactly, but close enough), and the story line of the show has just passed that point. Which is another way to say that the late 60's and early 70's have a very special place in my heart. I love watching the woman find their strength even as I mourn the assignations of those who stepped up to make our country a better place. Loss as a catalyst for change, I suppose, but it's sad it took so much of it. I see parts of myself in the women on the show, and it is interesting to see how their lives are changing as well. There is only one episode left.. at least for this summer. I'd like to follow the women as they move on to other places in their lives, but don't know if that is planned. Either way, it's a really well done show, and especially special to me.

*nods* They wrapped it up last night, ending with mini bios on each woman's future. I know it's available on Hulu (Plus), and you can also find the last episodes here:
I'm sure other places will have it soon as well.
