Storyline

Manhunt: Unabomber (formerly known as "Manifesto") will explore how the FBI caught infamous criminal masterminds, with each closed-ended season following a different case. The first season will focus on the FBI agent, a highly specialized linguist, who using unconventional means brought Ted Kaczynski, aka the "Unabomber", to justice after nearly a 20-year manhunt. The show, said to be heavily serialized and darkly psychological in the vein of True Detective,would provide insight into the criminal and the case but also the psychological effects the cases have on the FBI agents assigned to hunt down the most dangerous criminals who often delve into a kind of madness of their own, becoming totally absorbed in the crimes and forced to live inside the darkest minds imaginable for years.

Paul Bettany as Ted
7 February 2018 | by emily-imdbSee all my reviews

I initially thought this might just turn into a FBI vs. Serial Killer standard crime series, however, when we are properly introduced to Ted Kazinscky - it becomes truly gripping. Paul Bettany does an incredible job of playing the role of The Unabomber, Ted Kazincsky: dark, ominous, highly intelligent and manipulative. I was young when the real incidents happened in the 90's, but I felt the series was compelling whilst not straying too far from the truth about this story. I'd recommend a watch.
