    I need Astronaut Diapers just to get through this series. Great dialogue. I knew it was a fraud too – the way they were jumping all around looked wrong. When ‘Capricorn One’ came out,my mother reminded me that the Moon Landing in ’69 was faked, just like the movie, (which broke my brother’s Boy Scout heart), but she said ‘Don’t be fooled – that whole thing was poorly made at a back-lot somewhere near the desert’. ‘Listen to your Mother’ they say.
