    I´ll have to admit I was a bit dissapointed by this one. Not because it is bad, it isn´t. But I thought this would be more about the actual developement of the bomb, the technical stuff, the problems they faced. All this is more in the background story. A character like Oppenheimer has a rather small part. There were large parts of the show where I felt like watching a soap opera. I really liked the final episode though, the end was quite powerful. So, good show, very well produced, the cast compliments each other and gives a good performance. It´s just the story that isn´t quite up my alley.

    I cant believe that shows like Outsiders get renewed while great dramas like Manhattan get cancelled. Its unfortunate WGN did such a piss poor job promoting this show. It deserved so much better

    Most of the time this show is painfully slow but i keep watching just for the interesting theme. I'd prefer it was more about the science of war and less about relationship drama between the wives of scientists. A missed opportunity for sure.

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
