Manifest-TV series

The premise of Manifest is such a familiar retread it defies watching. Do we need another sci-fi series? A plane lands that departed five years ago. The passengers were all assumed dead. When they depart the plane, they haven’t aged. They don’t realize five years have passed. The predictable cliché-ridden consequences fill out the hour like cotton candy. The boyfriend marries thinking his girlfriend is dead. The wife has an affair thinking her husband is deceased. As if that wasn’t enough to irritate us, the plane survivors have psychic powers. The looky lubes turned out in droves for the premiere episode last night. In this environment if you get ten million viewers you’re a winner. I won’t be around to check out subsequent episodes -will you?
