The series tries to draw in parallel the life of FBI profiler and U. even if there is nothing in common between the two persons. The link is such as being obligated to wait at red lights,quite a trivialization of U message. This is a common trend in some TV biographical series in that one has to trace the famous person through the eyes of a common people, with whom we are supposed to connect.Little info on Unabomber.
A 7 hour version of Zodiac that relies on three main narrative tropes: a) America creates monsters (Osama Bin Laden, Donald Trump, the Unabomber...) and these monsters, inevitably return to haunt America; b) The prey and the predator, the hunter and hunted are basically the same person; c) In America, traffic lights are always red.
One of the biggest surprises and most exciting series in years. While not a high quality piece I'm a sucker for investigate/profiling pieces like this; the closest thing I've seen to the Zodiac. Would be great if they do future series on other criminals, similar to what Narcos is going to do. Episode 6 was also one of the best episodes of TV I've seen in a while and a nice changeup into the mind of a troubled soul
