Most of the time this show is painfully slow but i keep watching just for the interesting theme. I'd prefer it was more about the science of war and less about relationship drama between the wives of scientists. A missed opportunity for sure.

I´ll have to admit I was a bit dissapointed by this one. Not because it is bad, it isn´t. But I thought this would be more about the actual developement of the bomb, the technical stuff, the problems they faced. All this is more in the background story. A character like Oppenheimer has a rather small part. There were large parts of the show where I felt like watching a soap opera. I really liked the final episode though, the end was quite powerful.
So, good show, very well produced, the cast compliments each other and gives a good performance. It´s just the story that isn´t quite up my alley.

One of my favourite shows from 2014 and one of the most underrated ones too. Excellent stuff.
