“Manifest” is a series, that many people tend to compare with the old but gold series, “Lost”. The series centers on the passengers and crew of a commercial airliner who suddenly reappear after being presumed dead for more than five years. The number 828, or anything similar/related to it, is seen in every episode. The title of each episode (and the title of the show itself) is related to airplanes or air travel, including the pilot episode, whose title is simply Pilot. Interestingly, Robert “Bob” Vance (Vance Refrigeration) is a recurring character on another NBC Show, “The Office”(2005).
