    This show caught my eye online and I decided to take a chance and purchase on blu-ray. it's competently written, well-acted and has an interesting setting for a show. It's also very well produced and captures the period and location very well. If you have an interest in World War II era drama set in an unusual place (New Mexico) I recommend Manhattan - Season 1. Curious to see where things develop for Season 2.

    Entertaining but somewhat dissapointing

    I looked forward to this show, anticipating it would be a real gem, but found it was relatively flawed. Far too much emphasis on the melodramatic 'relationships' of tertiary characters. The science, what there is of it, is largely focused on implosion vs. gun design. I'll watch the next season when it becomes available on disc but have low expectations.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first season of Manhattan. Picked it up as something that might have potential and binged watch the entire season over two days. Can't wait for season 2 to come out! So yes, it gets my vote as yet another excellent tv series.

    Yeah, it's a fictional account of a very important historic event and as film and TV so often does, a bit over-dramatized. But still a good show to watch. Looking forward to future seasons.

    Really liked characters and plot involving the personal relationships and stress associated with development of the atomic bomb. Seemed very real. Good acting and set.

    Manhattan is a series that delivers! The show is set pre-WWII, and is about the folks who were designing the Atom Bomb. Great acting!
