The Right Stuff:
Liked it, didn't love it. It was 90% about the personalities of Glenn and Shepherd, with a little Cooper. Almost everyone else was background noise. They absolutely breezed through the medical clinic. I did like how they explored how new everything was, the tension with the sudden fame, the dump that Patrick AFB was. I hope the rest of the series/season explores the other astronauts.
Gene Krantz' autobio spent several paragraphs on Patrick alone and several pages on how half-assed NASA was back then.
