Reminds me of the early Michael Mann film Manhunter! Great so far.
So far, so great!
It doesn’t take long to forget that this excellent series is brought to you by the Discovery Channel. You are instantly plunged into the world of new FBI profiler Fitzgerald, whose speciality is forensic linguistics, suitable for figuring out criminals who like to send letters and share their thoughts. His special talents are immediately scooped up by the Unabomber task force, who’ve been hunting him with no success for nearly 17 years. It takes Fitzgerald to tell his superiors that they’ve got him all wrong, the guy they are hunting is brilliant, not stupid.
For those who enjoy profilers, there are scenes that will remind you of Manhunter—the first film about Hannibal Lechter and Will, the dangers of entering the mind of a killer. Looking forward to upcoming episodes.
It's in the same style as what Fincher did for the Zodiac movie. Very well done.
