They’re making a “gadget,” one that they hope will save the world … but fear will actually destroy it someday.
In Manhattan, WGN’s new World War II drama about scientists racing to develop an atomic bomb while grappling with the threat of espionage and the equally undermining power of egos, has just finished its first season, and the network is re-running all 13 episodes this Sunday, Oct. 26, in one marathon showing starting at 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT.)
For those who are already fans, it’s a chance to revisit those earlier episodes and catch little hints and Easter eggs that become much more important as this fictional story of the Manhattan Project progresses. For those who haven’t yet tuned in but are intrigued by the idea of a Mad Men-style story fueled by the nuclear age, it’s the perfect time to devote 13 hours to a Manhattan binge-watch.
Here’s an EW guide to each episode, including commentary from series creator Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) who has declassified some of the behind-the-scenes trivia.
