Quotes

Stan Cole: We are hunting the deadliest serial bomber in history: the Unabomber. For seventeen years, he's been planting and mailing bombs; sixteen bombs, three people killed, dozens injured, and we really have no friggin' clue who he is or why he's doing this. We call him the Unabomber because his early targets were universities and airlines: "UN" for "university", "A" for "airline", Unabom.

Fascinating Detective Story
10 January 2018 | by gbshulerSee all my reviews

The best part of this drama is the excellent story telling by the writers. It kept me on the edge of my seat. Although we all know how the story ends there is more than enough good content to keep you interested throughout. The production was first rate.

In an age when people are regularly "convicted" in the media with no defense, this story will bring you back to center with the reality of how much work it really takes to bring someone to justice. My 14 year old was transfixed throughout. This film really brought home a lesson I have tried to teach her concerning how special it is to live in a country where the police can't just knock down your door. In the vast majority of the world the authorities don't need a warrant.

Our FBI works tirelessly and on pennies. You can clearly see why in this series.
