The most expensive web series ever at a cost of $170 BILLION! (Cost of the Apollo program in 2005 dollars.) If NASA stuck you on the moon in 1972, wouldn't YOU be pissed? Completely re-done in 720p HD since--much like Lawrence of Arabia--the square-ish shape of old TVs couldn't contain the majestic cinematography. (LA was winner of the Best Comedic Web Series Award at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival when it was still in Aspen.)

Jan Dietrich, a commercial pilot and one of the "Mercury 13" (a group of women who secretly underwent the same training as the Mercury 7 astronauts), appears as a contestant on a 1963 episode of "To Tell the Truth" with host Bud Collyer and panelists Tom Poston, Peggy Cass, Merv Griffin, and Phyllis Newman. In an April Fools' Day twist for the panel it turns out that Pat Dietrich and the two impostors all have identical twins, and the panelists have to decide not only who the real Jan Dietrich is but also which of the twins they were questioning a moment earlier.

Jeder hatte doch mal einen Traum. Eine ganz genau Vorstellung, was er als Kind unbedingt werden wollte. Oftmals sind diese Berufswünsche, die man als Kind hatte, schier unmöglich zu verwirklichen. Weil man Astronaut, Prinzessin oder Pilot werden will. Wir haben nachgefragt, was die Leipziger unbedingt als Kind werden wollten: »Ich wollte früher Friseurin werden. Ich bin zu DDR-Zeiten groß geworden und da war das ein Traumberuf. Man konnte viel Geld verdienen. Aber zum Glück hat es nicht geklappt.

Jetzt mache ich zurzeit eine Ausbildung als KFZ-Mechatroniker. Beende diese bald und gehe dann zur Pol...
