[ # ] Manhunt: Unabomber is explosive!
August 1st, 2017 under DIscovery/TLC

For 17 years, the Unabomber caused fear in the United States by sending bombs in the mail and tonight at 9p, Discovery looks into the Manhunt to find Ted Kaczynski (Paul Bettany).

When I heard about this series, I thought it was going to be told as through the Unabomber’s eyes, it is not. Manhunt: Unabomber is about how the FBI looked for and eventually caught the elusive bomber. I was not expecting to like it, but I did because it is scary how bureaucracy stalled his capture.

Jim Fitzgerald (Sam Worthington) is an older FBI recruit who is a whiz at profiling. Because of that he is recruited to look into the Unabomber. He comes up with a profile, but his bosses tell him to follow theirs even though it is wrong. Time goes by, new clues including manifesto come in and eventually they start to see things his way. Just because he has profile does not mean he has the suspect.

What happens when he finally does? You do not want to miss this 8-part series to find out. Imagine trying to find someone who is so off the grid, there is no way to contact him, let alone find him. That is the impossible task the Federal Bureau had to deal with and yet they got their man.
