Did You Know?


The 1953 flashback scene was filmed at Newnan High School in Georgia. See more »


During Ted's childhood flashback, Ted is shown playing in the woods and discovers the body of an old car. The vehicle has no windows, chassis or interior, and appears sitting neglected with plant life growing over the body. However, there are several indicators that this car isn't in-fact neglected and has actually been recently prepared for a respray. The car has several raw steel panels that are still shiny and untarnished, and the exterior of the body has been repaired with body-filler, which has recently sanded and feather edged, further signs of paint prep. Further, most body-fillers weren't on the market until 1955, three years after the scene is meant to have taken place. Finally, the passenger's door on the vehicle appears to have recently been painted orange and features a polished door handle obvious to the viewer.

It is also sadly worth noting that the condition of the vehicle, which was obviously prepared for painting, leaves the body very susceptible to rusting. Unfortunately, as this vehicle has now been exposed to the elements in this state, the prop would now likely have to immediately undergo another paint preparation from scratch in order to prevent imminent rusting of the steel. In other-words, not only does this prop have the potential to ruin a viewers suspension of disbelief, but also the people responsible for it's condition needlessly damaged it in the process.

Ted Kaczynski: [writing a letter to his brother] My whole life, I've felt like I'm watching the world from the other side of a window, and I just don't know how to pass through to the other side, where everything is effortless. David, I need to know. How do you know if it's too late to change? How can you tell if it's still possible to begin again?

User Reviews

this is THE episode
21 April 2018 | by monte-haywardSee all my reviews

If you can only watch 1 episode, make it this one. It stands well on its own, and illustrates how a Unabomber is forged by experiences. How dastardly that his psyche was broken down at age 16 by an infamous government experiment!

I'm tempted to show this episode to others without context. What would they think of the protagonist if they did not know his name?
