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.

Very good, but misses about leftism
22 July 2018 | by spobedinskasSee all my reviews

Very good , I like it , as far as I can tell it is quite accurate. Show makes you sympathize with a Kaczynski, but then it shows innocent people, that were maimed during his attacks. A very well made show, however it has one important flaw. Show intentionally misses the part of his manifesto attributed to leftist quasi-religion about political correctness which plays important role in day to day madness and to modern day hysteria in college campuses.
