The security apparatus cranks up in the latest episode of Manhattan as someone in Winter's group is accused of being a Communist, phone calls are monitored, and someone tries to get laid. Spoilers ahead.
Do you like Manhattan, the second original scripted show from WGNA (following on the heels of Salem)? I like Manhattan. I actually like it quit a lot. I like it much more than Salem.
Frank Winter is a physicist, a husband, a father, and a fanatic. On Manhattan, his fanatical obsession with producing a working bomb as soon as possible overshadows everything else in his life. Despite the show's efforts (particularly the last episode) I can't bring myself to care about him.
The second episode of the fictionalized account of the Manhattan Project aired Sunday. The situation with one of the physicists working on the bomb reminded me of an episode of Deep Space Nine. Spoilers for Manhattan, DS9 and WW2 ahead.
Tonight WGN America launched its second original series, Manhattan. Set in Los Alamos during the war years of the 1940s, the show on the surface is about the project to build the first atomic bomb. But there's a lot more going on. Spoilers ahead.
