Stinger Topic of the Week: Manifest Season 1 Recap
23:31 If you’re thinking the NBC series Manifest is your run-of-the-mill “mysterious event drama,” you probably haven’t watched all of season one. Touted as the next Lost, Manifest was on the verge of boring us until the second half of the season when the plot twists renewed our excitement for the show. Listen in as we talk about Michaela, Ben, Grace, Olive, Cal, Jared, Zeke, and Saanvi. Spoilers ahead!
Synopsis of Manifest: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. But in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years — and after mourning their loss, their friends, families and colleagues had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds, and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
