I really liked this show. I suggested it in my family's TV show recommendation group chat, and my parents watched it and were actually offended at the possibility that Russians beat Americans to the moon, and how it represented President Nixon.
He hit me with the "It'd be like a TV show rewriting history and making Obama out to be a bad guy."
But Nixon was a bad guy... like he was a bad, corrupt president. And I wouldn't have a problem with them fictionalizing President Obama in a fictional television show. If there's a show in the future about how China bails us out of the Great Recession and it turns President Obama into an incapable idiot who blunders the entire thing... I wouldn't care one bit, as long as the entertainment was good.
Obviously my father and I don't align politically lol
