Pandora's Box

The perils of working and living on The Hill are a lot clearer after Manhattan Season 1 Episode 2. From used sheets and dangerous stovetops to the torture of suspected spies, there is nothing average about living on The Hill. We find out just how little the scientists understand about the work they're doing when Sid is questioned at length about what he was going to do with the papers he took to from the office. Suggesting he planned on selling what he created to Eastma... more

Welcome to The Hill

In 1943 Los Alamos, New Mexico didn't exit. It was known as "The Hill" with an address of P.O. Box 1663, Santa Fe, New Mexico. In Manhattan Season 1 Episode 1 we're introduced to that dusty microcosm and its inhabitants -- the most dense population of geniuses ever found in one place, their families and the U.S. Army. Only the scientists knew what they were doing, and they didn't even know that until they already committed by signing on the dotted line. We see the reali... more

'Manhattan' Interview: Tragedy 'Amps Up the Level of Paranoia'

When Manhattan episode 2, "The Prisoner's Dilemma," ended, it was clear the situation on The Hill would never be the same. Los Alamos was a community that thrived despite the secrecy and mistrust that pervaded the community. How would the death of one of their own change that? While visiting the Manhattan set, I asked Michael Chernus (Louis 'Fritz' Fedowitz), Alexia Fast (Callie Winter) and Eddie Sh... more

  • Level 1
