Subtitles Manhunt Unabomber S01E07

Season 1, Episode 7 – Lincoln

FBI profiler Jim Fitzgerald is under the gun to amass the evidence needed to secure a search warrant for Ted Kaczynski’s cabin. Why the extreme sense of urgency? Because the plan was originally for a small surveillance team on the ground in Montana to build a case for a warrant over months, but after CBS News learns that the Unabomber has been identified, the FBI has just 24 hours until the network reports it. Now it’s up to Fitz to find a linguistic “smoking gun” that will tie Kaczynski to the Manifesto in the eyes of a Federal judge.

Manhunt: Unabomber (formerly known as “Manifesto”) will explore how the FBI caught infamous criminal masterminds, with each closed-ended season following a different case. The first season will focus on the FBI agent, a highly specialized linguist, who using unconventional means brought Ted Kaczynski, aka the “Unabomber,” to justice after nearly a 20-year manhunt. The show, said to be heavily serialized and darkly psychological in the vein of True Detective,would provide insight into the criminal and the case but also the psychological effects the cases have on the FBI agents assigned to hunt down the most dangerous criminals who often delve into a kind of madness of their own, becoming totally absorbed in the crimes and forced to live inside the darkest minds imaginable for years.
