Wifeys, is there anything more patriotic than going out with a bang? The super-sized series finale of Astronaut Wives Club had everything I love about this show—talking head interviews that distill each wife's character arc into a few poignant questions, insanely awesome late 60s fashions, a random gala, girl-gang reunions—and so little of what I do not always love about this show, a.k.a. the plot. We did put a man on the moon, and we saved the astronauts of Apollo 13, but the final voiceover reveals that only 7 of the 30 original astronauts marriages survived. It ain't easy being an astronaut wife, but at least we got to sit back and enjoy the spectacle.
