I went looking for a Tumblr dedicated to “Manhattan,” the WGN America show, set during World War II and regarding the Manhattan Project, which completed its first season last night. (Oct. 19, 2014) Finding that there isn’t one, I will now begin an effort to gather the happy few who were able to find the channel and know how excellent the show is.
It was renewed for a second season, so some of us must be active on Tumblr. I’ll reblog what I find, using the hashtag #manhattan WGNA (Without the “WGNA” you get shots of NYC or the Woody Allen movie.)
West Wing fans should know that Tommy Schlamme is an executive producer and Richard Schiff had an important recurring role in the first season. Also: Schlamme borrowed a page from his direction of Two Cathedrals last night. I would not make that comparison lightly.
"It’s me the most by the way." Ellen’s missing out on a money-making opportunity, because I’m surely not the only fan who would buy a DVD of this all-West Wing episode from May 2006.
