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 acting and compelling story telling
7 September 2017 | by zenmateisshiteSee all my reviews

I was unaware of Ted Kaczynski's story, but whenever the Unabomber was referenced in other shows they made it sound like a very dark ominous tragedy, like the Oklahoma bombing, but you can't even compare the two.

Sure, Kaczynski was a serial killer, but that's about it. He did not require all the panic and resources spent on him. His bombs were meant to harm individuals not groups. Sure, he did evil and harmed many directly or indirectly but he's not the worse.

There are far more dangerous people who have killed many more than him, who occupy the highest office in the land, an have the code for the "button". I think this show will help get Ted some support and sell a lot of his books, which are highly rated by the way.

About the show, great subtle acting by the lead characters and great balanced (IMHO) storytelling and the period was not overdone.
