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.

User Reviews

So far a must see Series, Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany are both incredibly engaging.
7 August 2017 | by Thrill_KillZSee all my reviews

I watch this sort of stuff all the time, too much at times, but I can say that this has an insightful feel to it that draws you in fast and leaves you wanting to spend the rest of your day/evening watching the rest. It's so well made, the writing is very intelligent and doesn't spoon feed you as it goes along. I admit despite occurring in my Country, the entire series of events was nothing more than a series of news-lines as I was graduating HS that year and remembered little more than that infamous sketch and vague details of the case as a whole.

I think they chose a good time for a show surrounding the details of what makes(made) Ted Kaczynski tick and how agent Jim 'Fitz' Fitzgerald meticulously profiled him in a manner unlike any other before him. I haven't read any of the Ted Kaczynski written articles and letters, but the start of this series has me very interested in him and his ideals. T.K. seems to have some very relatable ideas, some that I very much agree with, but ideals and mailing people explosive devices are quite different. This guy could have easily been a famous author or as law enforcement keeps saying "with an IQ of 168 this guy could have done anything in life", Einstein had a 160 IQ. I'm very much looking forward to the rest of the series after such a great start.

The really negative reviews here are laughable and written by those who are most likely on a watch list....👀
