If you’ve been watching the new NBC Drama Series “Manifest,” you’re not alone. The show reminds me of the cancelled ABC Series, “LOST,” which ran for several seasons on ABC for six years, until “Jack and Locke,” parted ways when the series ended.
For some reason, this new series created by Showrunner and Writer Jeff Rake, gives me the inside feel of watching “LOST,” all over again, but, in different realities under the premise of “LOST.”
The scenario’s are almost in similarity, but, the feel is even stranger than fiction. Showrunner Jeff Rakes gives you the inside feel, as if your watching “LOST,” under a whole new perspective in television viewing.
I have a strong feeling, that NBC has a winning series at their door front and a stable ship with an agenda for series survival in future episodes to come. Ideally, it’s still to early to tell if the series is running on “fail-safe” mode for the time being?
As I mentioned before the series concept brings a strong new vision to NBC’s drama series base, something the network hasn’t had in many years with since the birth of “Chicago Fire,” the their trilogy of series in “Chicago Med” and “Chicago P.D.”
I’m usually a fan of the ABC Newtork Series shows, in my younger years while growing up watching television, I used to feed my appetite of drama series within the three big networks, from ABC, NBC and CBS – nowadays, there’s a host networks to choose from and more – something that has changed the viewing pleasures of those that watch network shows across the board and more.
In closing, NBC has a fair game and a great new series to tell, its long to survive well in the ratings as long as fans of the show keep its head above the water and more from here on out. Only time will tell if it stays afloat in those choppy network waters and more.
