For All Mankind Season 3

The world is an amazing place. The United States has the most abundant population, has had the most presidents, made the most Nobel prizes, and hosts more internationally competitive sports than any other country. But imagine if after World War II America was not so rich in resources and power. Imagine if after the Great Depression, the Russians came back in the 1950s with their space program.

What is the plot of the story ?

There are two main characters. The first one is a Russian scientist named Yuri Gagarin who goes into space in an early version of the rocket ship Vostok which results in him being shot up into space. In the story he has been put into a bio-capsule for most of his life and has very little knowledge of earthly things, like sports and pop culture, but is very curious about them. The second main character is a writer named John Glenn who was one of the first Americans to go into space. He gets captured by the Russians and they perform many tests on him. Gagarin comes across Glenn before he gets sent to his cell and is left with very little choice but to try to free him from the Russians.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include Shantel VanSanten , Sarah Jones , Joel Kinnaman , Will Forte , Kristen Schaal , Kevin Kline , Keith David , Jim O’Heir , Seth Green and Rainn Wilson . Gagarin meets Glenn when he is a child and is interested in him because of his natural curiosity about space. He goes on further from there and meets him again later on in his life. When he meets Glenn the first time he has been boring him with questions about rockets, aliens, rockets and aliens. Glenn doesn’t think much of him and asks him if it would be okay if he was sent back to his cell as soon as possible but Gagarin convinces him to stay longer so they can talk.

What are the difficulties they face ?

The first difficulty they face is getting Gagarin and Glenn out of their cells. The scientists that captured Glenn were very mean to him and were always telling him how stupid he was, so the two of them escape and go running around the spaceship. They eventually find the lifts but there are some Russians in front of them with guns. They turn around and try to run back in the other direction when they see several Russians coming towards them from that side. It  jump into a vent but then realise it has ended so there is no where for them to go.

Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?

The antagonist is a Russian scientist named Tanya who did not respect Gagarin’s work and believes that he is a fool. She does not like him but when he tries to escape she goes after him and chases him around the spaceship trying to shoot him with her gun. She eventually corners and shoots him in the leg, but he keeps running and jumps down from the vent into which he fell earlier. He then goes onto the next one and finally into a rocket where they take off back to Earth. One of the themes is that you shouldn’t judge people by their appearance. Tanya was the antagonist and did not like Gagarin, but later on she realizes that he is a good person because he helped Glenn escape even though they had never met before and he was only trying to do what was right.

Who is the most loved character ?

The most loved character was Gagarin because he brought a lot to the story and made it more interesting. He had things to offer the plot like his determination, curiosity, and helpfulness which he gave to Glenn when he helped him escape from the Russians. And it was not only those things but he brought along with him a whole history that had never been told in any of our movies or books such as the history of Russia’s space program or his own childhood or even how his parents died before he even became an adult.

Would you recommend watching this ?

Yes, I would recommend watching this movie because of the interesting plot, the consistent action and drama, especially in the last thirty minutes and the great cast that was just perfect for their roles. Thanks for reading !
