Does anyone else here watch "Manifest" on NBC? Season finale is tonight
Started watching it in late 2018 when it came out. I guess its a permanent mid-season replacement show.

Keeps getting weirder and harder to keep up with--sorta like "Under the Dome." Kinda was hoping this was going to be the series finale.

Still its like a bad car wreck. Have to watch it.

It plays out like those Christian-produced features that end up starring Kirk Cameron, or something similar. Like if Hallmark Channel tried to make their own version of LOST.

Or one of those weird Canadian series that makes its way to Netflix. It's compelling enough to make it week-to-week, but just fricking get there already.

After last night's finale, it's going to be maddening if they don't pay this all off and wrap up the series.

We’ve watched since day one. But they keep making it weirder and weirder. The year long without an episode made me forget what was going on. The acting is terrible on so many levels, and it now runs like a soap opera.

But yeah … it’s almost like we watch it to see if we ever get anywhere.

I just want to know what happened to the damn plane. Quit watching about half-way through this year, will read to find out what happened to the plane.

Totally agree. Started watching this when it first came out and the idea of the show made me set my DVR to record new episodes. Had I not set it to record years ago, I would have quit watching. The show is a complete shite storm of stupid and confusing events/stories. Completely impossible to know or even feel like you know what is happening. The words and phrases they say (lifeboat, callings, the Major, death date) are so overused I cringe every time they say them. The acting is so bad...just so bad. The storyline is so confusing that I keep watching just to see it end or see how in the hell can they possibly make this crap fest of events tie in, but it keeps going.

Despite how horrible I think it is.....I keep watching.....clearly it's me with the problem.

I remember watching a episode or 2 when it came out.

Seemed like another LOST type mystery box show, with no real pay offs, so I bailed.

No clue it was still a thing.

#1 over the weekend, no less. Brilliant move by NBC, since nobody watches Peacock.

Any time a show like this is pitched, every network on the planet should demand that the showrunners produce a coherent story treatment over the entire arc before it's greenlit.

Started this last night on Netflix out of lack of options. Figured we would watch it to pass the time then never watch again. Got sucked in and watched 3 episodes. Want more.

I know its a bad show and its going to get worse and worse, but I'm going to watch until that point. Only reason is because it available to binge watch. If I have to wait week to week id quit immediately.

same, but was totally uninterested. Didn't make it through the first episode. "Set them free." Come on.

re: Does anyone else here watch "Manifest" on NBC? Season finale is tonight
We have the last 4 episodes of this season on the DVR. We watch it periodically. It's not that good though.

I was about to give up on it out of the expectation that they will never pay anything off, but then I read that they had a 6 season plan going into the series. Now it's just up to NBC to justify keeping it around that long.

Which may be a long shot.

They're campaigning hard to get Netflix to pick the show up, at least for a final 4th season. And by "they," I mean the showrunners and the cast.

Personally, I'd rather see Prodigal Son resurrected than this one, but that's assuming I could only save 1.
