If you are looking to fast-track your knowledge of current issues regarding Mars exploration, this combination drama/documentary is an answer. The fictionalized account, set in the 2030s, is interspersed with interviews with a range of scientists and footage from space events. The plot keeps you watching and most of the real-time information (with the exception of the section on Antarctica) is quite interesting. Season 2 has been ordered...

Interesting mix of the current state of space exploration combined with a speculative dramatization of what Mars exploration and colonization might look like and the dangers and issues that the colonizers might face.

Enjoyed the documentary more then the fiction story. One of the things that really annoyed me, was according to the fiction story. In the year 2035, Canada was not interested or powerful enough to be part of the international consortium that funded the Mars mission. Or field a single astronaut or scientist to be worthy of a place on the Mars project. I know it's a fictional story but they trying are to sell the show to Canadian TV stations and specialty channels. Yet not one of the people behind the show thought that by 2035 Canada might have given birth to another Chris Hatfield.

If you like your science-fiction mixed with a heavy dose of reality, you're going to love Mars, the docudrama mini-series by National Geographic. The show deftly combines interviews with today's prominent businessmen, astrophysicists, and engineers, and weaves their predictions into a plausible live-action narrative about humankind's first attempt to colonize the red planet. The production is slick, informative, and highly entertaining. I binge-watched this one. I'd recommend Mars for people who enjoy TV shows like The Universe, Cosmos, and Through the Wormhole.

The "movie" part of this could have been shown alone and been popular. The lectures got a bit tedious, and we actually started fast-forwarding through them. Seemed the series was almost a commercial for Elon Musk. Still, I would recommend watching it (at least the movie part).
