Season Two of this WGN series follows the nerve-racking race against the clock to construct the bomb that would change the course of World War II, told from the point of view of the scientists whose shadowy world of secrets forever tainted the lives of their families. Olivia Williams stars.
Manhattan is a story about scientists working for the military to develop the first h bomb at the close of WW2. The plot and characters are both richly developed, and I was very entertained by the story. Unfortunately, there won't be a third season as it has been canceled.
I got hooked on this series as it is interesting how that whole era thrived...or didn't. The race to create the atom bomb and win the war. Very interesting all the lives and families that went through what they did to keep everything a secret.
