Manifest - Sky Lost remix

My wife and I take it in turns to choose a series to watch together. After I chose The Boys, she chose this. Any comparisons to Lost are similar to when you were bought an advent calendar as a kid and it turned out it was made by Kinnerton rather than Cadbury. Whilst I didn't really care for Lost, this feels like a budget Sci-Fi channel rip-off.

 

It's a bit rubbish, with some really ropey acting. I've endured 13 episodes so far. Can't help feeling it suffers from the affliction normally known as Netflix Bloat.

I mistakenly thought Manifest was the 4400 reboot when the first episode was shown on Sky. The plot and characters in the 1st ep seem ok, nothing particularly good or bad, but I don't feel the urge to invest time in its serialised story after being burned by the meandering plots and unexpected cancellation of similar shows (like LOST, The Event, 4400, etc). I know that's probably unfair - the 1st season has good-ish reviews and a second season has been confirmed, but there's no guarantee it will be given the time to complete its story arc.

I watched the first season and it was trash. Plot threads go nowhere, ridiculously contrived happenings, poor acting (the son in particular) and the general intrigue (which is why my gf and I wanted to watch it) thrown away pretty much immediately. 

 

It's like Lost in that it feels like they are making it up as they go along, so the comparison isn't entirely redundant.

I watched it all in a few days and i enjoyed most of it.

The evil guy should have been kept alive longer and used more as an alternative to the goody-goodys. And the drowning thing was daft and the timer scenario is a bit forced butneeded for tjere to be a second series i guess.

No, season 3 is starting to get some 'coming soon' promos, sadly. Its a terrible show that my girlfriend unfortunately likes.

 

The second season was also trash and even worse than the first season, not only building on what @choddomentions in his spoiler, but the whole arc for frozen guy is abysmal leading to

God/magic/superpowers!

Oh, and to answer the question @Hitcher- no, nothing has been wrapped up at all.
