This show didn’t really leave a mark on me. It is an interesting non-historically accurate take on the lives surrounding the making of the atomic bomb. Even with the show not being historically accurate with the characters, it does do well in the cinematography area and is sensitive to the time period. The show does have a very soap operay take to it especially with it’s characters. It’s like a night-time soap. Is it worth a watch? I’ll leave that up to you.
