Storyline

Throughout the early 1960s and 1970s, the Zodiac Killer, one of history's most famous unidentified serial murderers, terrorized America in a spree of heinous attacks, sending taunting letters and codes filled with bizarre and ancient symbols. This code has baffled some of the greatest minds in cryptology for over 50 years. "The Hunt For The Zodiac Killer" opens up a new investigation into the mystery of this twisted serial assassin. A team of top investigators and code-breakers, working in tandem with a super-computer, known as CARMEL, the first of its kind programmed to think like a killer. This team believes they may have broken a significant portion of the diabolically complicated code, Z340, and have been granted unprecedented access to police files, new witnesses, new clues, and the cooperation of representatives of the CIA and FBI.

Starts strong, turns very sketchy
23 January 2020 | by drug_dealinSee all my reviews

The show seems very promising at first, but as it continues on it seems more and more like things are being fabricated to add cinematic value. The cadaver part is very sketchy and seems completely set up (faked). Same with the bomb thing. Both seem set up and fake. The broken code is complete BS if you actually look at it and why wouldn't the "super computer" be used more than two or three times? Like I said, starts off strong and then it turns into a production. Nothing new really.
