There are several on the list that do a good job of it but 'A Walk on the Moon' would probably get my vote.

Oh yeah.Hmm, it doesn't even hint at when it's expected. I was trying to think if there's another season of any year ever that's so iconic.

There are articles from last year saying he wanted to have it ready for the moon landing anniversary. But he seems to have several projects in the air.
