  • Great Conspiracy Theory

    4

    If you know who the Mercury Seven were and their importance to NASA history, you will either love or hate this show. The premise is that an astronaut in the early 1960's may have been looking down on earth and taking some notes on what he saw from space under the Carribean ocean near some reefs. Since there is no history book out there, nor an interview, nor a biography stating the astronaut did this -- by definition its a conspiracy story. If you love treasure hunting, ship wrecks, diving and Spanish culture (we tracel to Spain), but hate the idea a national hero could be up to some hanky-panky in the capsule, you will still want to watch (alone). In one episode, the show gathers and interviews in one shot some of the actual McDonnell Aircraft Company engineers who built the Mercury Progran space capsules. Now in their 90's, that interview segment alone is worth the price of admission. In another episode the show somehow gets a face to face with retired, unimpeachable, legendary, NASA Apollo Program Flight Director Gene Kranz. A man who knows more about the Apollo program than anyone. It is uncomfortable to watch as the interview goes from "thanks for coming by to talk about Gordon Cooper and the Mercury program", and then watch as Kranz immediately distances himself and walks away when the conspiracy theory is brought up. In the end the series runs out of money to produce a full season. It's kind of like a six-episode pilot. The end justifies watching the show however since the conspiracy is proven plausible.
