The limited series “Mars,” out on home video, is a hybrid of scripted and nonscripted material. A dramatized story follows a few astronauts in 2033 who go on the first manned mission to colonize Mars. This story is mixed with interviews with top scientists from NASA and the European Space Agency explaining how each hurdle would be faced and defeated. The blend of drama and real interviews makes “Mars” as entertaining as it is informative.
