‘For All Mankind’ season 4 episode 9 review: The race for Goldilocks is well and truly on

Just like Terry Gilliam’s classic dystopian movie of the same name, “Brazil” (the latest episode of “For All Mankind”) isn’t really about South America. The country is relevant, sure, but here Brazil refers to escaping from your humdrum, everyday existence, the idea of hope when things seem hopeless. Not that such idealistic visions provide any guarantees that good things will come to pass…

The unexpected reunion of space race veterans and long-time friends Margo Madison (Wrenn Schmitt) and Sergei Nikulov (Piotr Adamczyk) has been one of the highlights of the season, and this episode makes the most of their stolen moments together under the glare of the CIA and KGB. But they’re not the only ones dreaming of a brighter future. Up on Mars, Ed (Joel Kinnaman) finally comes clean about his motivations for living out his days on the red planet, while North Korean Lieutenant Colonel Lee (C. S. Lee) makes a decision that could shape the rest of his life.
