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.

Brilliant detective work
9 August 2017 | by celestekentSee all my reviews

The FBI uses profilers to figure out who their cold case perpetrators are and in this drama our hero develops a whole new form of Forensic linguistics to develop his profile. In the process he is up against the entire FBI bureaucracy who is mired in the old ways and who reject Fitz's new techniques. Even with all that without the brother turning him in there still might not be an end to this case.

The battle of wits between Fitz and the unabomber during their interviews is almost worth the entire series. The unabomber has many ideas that will fit well for many potential jury members and so the FBI wants a confession and not merely going to court with their mountain of evidence.

The ideas presented in this series about linguistics are interesting of themselves, the concepts of just what is meant by freedom for instance resonated with so many people.

I give this a big thumbs up!
