There’s A Startling Lack Of Unabomber In Discovery’s ‘Manhunt: Unabomber’

Where to Stream

Manhunt: Unabomber

Don’t get me wrong, I am loving Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber. The network’s all-new scripted anthology series is a gripping dramatization of the FBI’s hunt for the notorious serial killer known as the Unabomber. The eight-episode drama follows FBI criminal profiler Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald’s obsessive search to bring the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, to justice. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the specifics of the case, you’ve undoubtedly seen the infamous Unabomber sketch and have a passing knowledge of the fear and mayhem this elusive murderer engendered during the mid-nineties.

The series is a cerebral cat and mouse tale that commands your full attention. My only critique of Manhunt? If you’re going to name a series after the Unabomber, you GOTTA GIVE ME MORE UNABOMBER.

Review: Discovery scores explosive win with Unibomber series

There was a time when the nation was terrorized by a single man, and he was neither sitting in the White House with his hand on the Button nor holed up in a cave in Afghanistan plotting his next move against America.

The Unabomber eluded capture for a decade and half, sending most of his deadly packages through the U.S. mail, ultimately killing three and injuring more than a dozen until he was finally captured in 1996.

“Manhunt: Unabomber,” the Discovery-scripted series, follows the FBI’s hunt for bomber Theodore Kaczynski (Paul Bettany) through the story of one of its greenest agents, Jim Fitzgerald (Sam Worthington).

Fitzgerald was a criminal profiler who pioneered the use of forensic linguistics while working on the Unabomber case. His painstaking deconstruction of Kaczynski’s letters and brilliant-yet-insane manifesto, “Industrial Society and Its Future,” helped crack the case.

Scripted dramas are fairly new territory. Last year’s “Harley and the Davidsons” was

How Accurate Is ‘Manhunt: Unabomber’? Discovery’s Step Into True Crime Highlights The Groundbreaking Investigation

Discovery Channel is officially in the true crime business with its newest eight-part series, Manhunt: Unabomber. The series will focus on the crimes, subsequent FBI investigation, and eventual capture of Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber. According to The New Yorker, Kaczynski is now spending life behind bars after pleading guilty to 16 bombings over 18 years that killed three people and injured 23. The series plans to take an in-depth look at the case from multiple angles — but unlike some true crime shows, it’s not a docuseries and instead features actors playing the familiar roles. So, how accurate is Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber?

It seems that the series intends to be as accurate as possible in its coverage of the events that took place leading up to, during, and after Kaczynski’s capture. Of course, there is always going to be a
