MANH(A)TTAN Season 2 Trailer

I'm probably one of the few who followed and enjoyed this show last year. But it's finally coming back on Tuesdays Oct 13.

Uhh, there was a thread last year..

Darn, I was hoping this was going to be maybe latelatelate summer.. So this is going to be on alongside regular prime time shows. Guess I'll have to prioritize it over something else.

I wish I could get WGN America. You'd think WGN would carry the show in Chicago, but at lest I can get it via VOD.

Kind of surprising given that WGN is trying to get into the prestige cable drama business, and this is their best shot, and yet they don't release it in the summer when it would have the best chance at getting viewers. Instead, they're holding it for fall when viewers are still trying to sort out which network shows to watch.

I was a big fan of S1 and will definitely watch S2. But ratings were low and I don't think this scheduling decision helps. It will be interesting to see if they can make it to S3.

I was thinking the same thing regarding "The Leftovers" and "The Knick". Both premiered during the summer last year, as did Manhattan.

I'll be recording and watching all three, but scheduling fall premieres of their respective second seasons seems like an idiotic move.

If you want to get to the top of the game, you've got to play in the big leagues. I'd imagine that to command better ad rates they need to prove they can get a significant portion of viewers when people are actually watching television.

Didn't they start last season in mid August? To me that makes more sense. A lot of the summer shows have ended and the last 2 weeks of August is pretty much a wasteland. Plus, if you get hooked on it before the fall TV series starts and you're more likely to stick with it when the season starts.

There re-running season 1. Assuming they do something else on the holiday weekend, the S1 finale will run on October 4. Maybe a marathon on the 11th? Seems like a much better way to add new viewers.

My question would be - Why are they moving it to Tuesday?

I'm just getting into this show via Hulu Plus. I recorded all of season 1 when I had Directv but never got to watch it before we moved over to Charter cable.

I am currently through 5 episodes and looking to do some more this week. Now I know season 2 starts tonight, but my dilemma is that Charter in my area does NOT have WGN America.

However, I read that last year, Hulu had a deal to make each episode available the next day for Hulu Plus subs. Anyone know if the same deal is in place for this season?

Anyone watching this season? Seems there was a decent amount of talk last year about it but nothing so far. That said, it's not nearly as good as last season but still decent. Any notice on renewal?

Spoiler about this season

Spoiler:
So it looks like this is going to end with the nuclear test in the desert. They could do one more season if they want to push it into the actual bombings in Japan.

I've only watched a couple. I hope they're all still on On Demand over the Xmas break when I'll likely catch up.. (...and they're virtually always _commercial free_ on On Demand. The very first episode had one long commercial, and I think ONE other episode may have had commercials, but they were FFable.. since then, completely commercial free except for the station bumper at the very beginning for ~10 seconds.)

I've got them all saved up on my TiVo. We'll see if I get around to watching them while most other shows are on hiatus over the next several weeks. There are other things I have saved up that are higher priority.

Charter FINALLY added WGN America last week but of course the season is almost over. I have episodes 8 and 9 saved currently. I am hoping they do some type of marathon soon so I can record the rest, as it is not on Hulu this year and I am not paying $1.99 per episode either.

I've kept up on the show. I have some time in the mornings when I leave for work that I watch some shows the rest of the family doesn't watch. This is one of them.

I thought season 1 was great. Season 2 started out ok but went downhill fast for me. I bailed around episode 4.

I'm still with it. While not as good as season 1, this season has been mostly ok.

So is the other spy the atty?

It'd be nice if Netflix or AMZ picked it up - I don't get WGNA because I'm in Chicago (and get WGN). I could only watch Manhattan on VOD which was a pain.

It wasn't commercial free for you on VOD?

I liked it, but I thought the 2nd season wasn't nearly as good as the first. I think they made a mistake airing it into September when the rest of the new shows were starting up. As a summer show, I thought it was pretty good.
