From the moment I saw the trailer for Manifest, which premiered on NBC last night (Monday, September 24, 2018), I have been waiting patiently for the first episode.
It did not disappoint.
I will admit that I was a little concerned that it would be a tad hokey, and quickly descent to a level of banality that the aviation-themed “Pan Am” did, but luckily it did not. Not only did it start out strong and with an immediate plot twist that set up the premise of the show, it featured multiple sequences involving an aircraft and dogs, so it checked off multiple check boxes for me.
So…if you try calling me on Monday nights from now on between the hours of 9pm and 10pm (Arizona local time), your call will go straight to voicemail because I will be watching Manifest…just so you know…
