The new mystery for NBC might be the most ridiculous, insane, and laughably bad show of the pilot season, but it will certainly intrigue you to no end.

Manifest tries to be a new hope, but it's no more than a Lost for dummies. [Full Review in Spanish]

Solid supernatural mystery explores family dynamics, loss.

The mystery behind Manifest just doesn't hook us enough from the start. It's like trying to jump into a world of ghosts and ghouls without introducing the natural, regular world first.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Schmaltzy and heavy-handed the references may be (828 in all the addresses, for instance), but they also set up a really good mystery. Who or what is causing these events to "work together for good?"

Intrigued? Hooked? Don't be. It's super dumb.

"Manifest" moves fast, but it plays like a ticket to nowhere.

September 25, 2018
Shows with complex premises need to provide more to be given a comprehensive review. The pilot alone was not enough to make me want to get on board.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.8/10

If you're looking for a righteous and medium-cheesy drama, dive right in. It's something of a low-calorie Daredevil serial with no real villains to speak of (yet!), plus a sprinkling of Touched by an Angel morality.

It's at least worth watching at least one more. Just in case it does happen to be aliens.

September 25, 2018
An exemplary pilot in some ways; the premise of an airplane time-jumping five years is engaging, and the central mystery about what has been done to the passengers is a great hook.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Manifest may have a bumpy flight ahead if it hopes to rise above the many failed mystery shows that have disappeared before it.

At this point, Manifest shows promise but hasn't delivered a whole lot to go on for viewers to guess what happens next. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as only one episode has aired and no show is going to deliver all of its answers in its first hour.
September 25, 2018
As the season progresses, perhaps it will find a way to develop the characters as well as the mysteries surrounding them, but for the time being, a reason to be genuinely intrigued by Manifest has yet to materialize.
September 25, 2018
There's enough intrigue here to keep watching, but Manifest only has a couple of episodes to get the tone right, or else people will check out.
September 24, 2018
It has a lot to say - and its premise is enough to keep you watching to find out what happens.
September 24, 2018
[Manifest] rarely takes flight because too many of the characters are so blandly, weepily rendered.

A good cast sells the improbable hook by at least making it emotionally probable.

September 24, 2018
Manifest has a frustrating lack of propulsion, a central dullness whose force field is so strong it bends all the interesting parts toward itself.
September 24, 2018
With an ensemble cast and a lot of moving parts, "Manifest" is getting an assist with its liftoff by following NBC's The Voice.
