All I can say is, “Thank God for Hulu Suggestions!”
I remember seeing the preview for this new show on NBC called “Manifest” but as quickly as I saw it, I forgot it. Not because it didn’t interest me. In fact, it stood out as something I would want to see. But as I’m sure you can imagine, life got in the way. Then, this week as I loaded up Hulu to catch up on some of the mid-season finales of shows that I’ve been watching up popped a suggestion: “Manifest.”
To explain this show, I want to put you right in the characters shoes (well, as closely as I can for make believe people.)
You’re headed back from a vacation with your family and the flight is overbooked. If you volunteer to wait and take the next flight, they’ll give you $400 for each person that hangs back. Seems pretty profitable, no? So, a couple of you stay back while the rest of ’em head back to New York.
It seems like your normal flight, with a moment of heavy turbulence but when you land that’s when things get tricky. It turns out, your flight was deemed missing for 5 and a half years! WHAT?!
As the series goes on, leading into its mid-season finale, some weird things start to happen. Not just to one of the passengers on flight 828, but all of them, as they begin to realize they’re all connected due to this mysterious flight.
There are only 9 episodes so far within the series and while all of our normal watch list goes on a slight hiatus, it’s time to check out some shows that are on the binge worthy list – and this is definitely one of them!
If you don’t believe me, check out the responses I got from my tweet about the show yesterday:
