  1. The story makes you think of ‘Manifest; but is it really a re-imagining of the MH370 saga which is still unsolved and looks to remain that way for some while yet.
    Canada makes some good procedural dramas so this show should be good entertainment, especially with Christopher Plummer who has amazing stamina as a 90 year old working actor.
