The One Part Of Manifest That Irritates Even Its Biggest Fans

"Manifest," the popular show about a group of airline passengers who disappear over the Atlantic Ocean and reappear five years later, received a recent and tragic cancelation notice from its network, NBC. But that doesn't change the fact that the show still has a strong and passionate — albeit, not large enough for NBC, apparently — fanbase. That being said, sometimes a show's most diehard fans can be its most vocal critics. "Manifest" is no exception.

Despite the show's impending end, there are some talks in the works that may result in a film continuation, similar to the way other prematurely canceled shows like "Sense8" and "Firefly" earned the opportunity to wrap things up in long-form. This would be great for viewers, because the end of Season 3 leaves a lot of loose ends and unanswered questions. You might think that the series ending in such an open-ended way would be the most irritating thing for "Manifesters" — but as of right now, you would be wrong. There's actually something else that is grinding people's gears, and it's not what you might think.

Fans on Reddit cannot stand all the word repetition

We know, we know — this is the first time people on Reddit have ever complained about anything in the history of the internet. What a shocker. In all seriousness, though, one post in particular has a nit to pick with one annoying, repetitive thing that many Manifesters aren't fans of. And it has to do with all the word repetition in the dialogue.

This reddit post, which was originally started by a reddit user named HeyYall832, has a 96% upvote rating and scores of comments in response the original poster's sentiment. "I thought it was annoying hearing the word calling every two seconds, but if I have to hear him say lifeboat one more [time] I'm going to lose it ... It just gets irritating having to hear the same thing over and over again."

Hopefully, if the movie ever gets off the ground, writers will take some of this constructive criticism to heart for the sake of the fans. But even if they don't, it's highly likely the majority of viewers will still come back for the final send-off of their favorite show. The first two seasons of "Manifest" can be streamed on Netflix right now. 

The third and final season is currently streaming on Peacock.
