The exaggeration of everything was pretty bad. But, it's probably obvious to most viewers that they over-dramatize things. I doubt a non-rocketry person would worry about, or even notice, that they launched the rocket without making sure the electronics and everything were in order.
The launch itself was spectacular. The weather looked just right. The rocket roared off the pad with a big flame. And the video of the launch - both from the ground and on-board - was well-done and nicely edited. They didn't need to add all the silly melodrama. But, I guess that's just the way that show is.
