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.

Fine but not very likeable
16 May 2018 | by xiaoli_shuSee all my reviews

The acting is good. The narration is fine. However, the portrayals of most of the characters in Manhunt bother me a little bit. It seems like only two people-Fitz and Ted-in the whole series are intelligent and everyone else is just foolish, stubborn, and uncooperative. I like dramas that are cleverly directed and executed , and that show both the likeable and unlikeable sides of the characters. And this one is...a little bit mundane...in my opinion. Anyway, it is still a fine series. Watch it and decide whether you like it or not.
