News & Interviews for Manhattan: Season 2
Manhattan is an overwrought, overripe piece of pulp fiction stuffed with overboiled intrigue.
Things heat up (literally) in the second hour with Justin Kirk in a guest role. The increasingly engrossing first four episodes move through D-Day.
This is the kind of evolution that all-time great series take, and it wouldn't surprise me one bit to see Manhattan get to the status that it deserves.
Manhattan isn't quite yet the great show I know it's capable of being as season two begins, but it's a show that moves with the confidence of a series that knows it can be great.
The series by Sam Shaw and Thomas Schlamme captures an American past with detail like no series since Mad Men and has an enviable cast.
