    I’d love to watch it… but my cable system doesn’t carry WGN. Hopefully it will end up on Netflix.

    Good, now I actually have to finish the first season.

    I am glad that Manhattan was renewed for the second season. I can’t wait to see what will happened in the second season. I hope that the producer will release the first season on DVD format because not everyone have a kindle device.

    I’ve been watching and wondering if this suppose to be factual account, of what took place? Or, are writer’s totally making up the storylines as they go? If it’s factual, whose diary’s are they using to write the episodes?

    Great show! So glad it’s being renewed for a second season. The stories are so compelling, you can’t stop watching and the acting is fantastic. But who was in the back seat of the car with the hood on at the end of the finale?

      Or was it maybe Franks wife❓

      Or was it maybe Franks wife❓or was it really Frank in the backseat as the car drove off❓ Either way it turns out, this is an excellent , well written & performed series‼️ I sigh at the end of everyone of the episodes knowing that I will have to wait a week for the next. Fantastic set of 1940 ‘s era. Loving it…please keep more coming ‼️

  13. I am SO happy this program got renewed. I was hooked on it from day 1 but had no idea how many other people were watching it too. excellent writing, excellent storytelling, excellent acting. the finale this season took my breath away. good job!!!

  14. Ginelle says:

    I believe that was Frank Winters being taken in the car at the end? I love this show, I hope we do not have to wait long for season 2!

    So glad to hear this! An intelligently written series, a la AMC’s “Rubicon” and “The Killing”, and great acting.
