Very Interesting

I enjoyed Quantico but trailed off somewhere in Season 2 when the series became a little improbable – when it finally jumped the shark, so to speak. Almost every show does. Consider the Sons of Anarchy, when the motorcycle gang just up and flew their bikes – in secret, without passports even – to Ireland. Right…

I stumbled upon Manhunt: Unabomber. It is very well done, with great acting and high production value. And the show engages with the Unabomber’s “manifesto” both in terms of content and linguistic forensics: Industrial Society and its Future.

The show’s plot includes the suspect’s earlier days as a target of MK-Ultra mind control. At Harvard as a teenager. Hmmm..

Long time readers will remember my earlier posting on this topic, and how photographs of his cabin appears to be coded and loaded.

Ted certainly has the “Lincoln” look going on and he┬áholed up in a one-room cabin. Where? In Lincoln, Montana. In your face.

At some point, I’d like to take a crack at his manifesto from the point of view of an editor. Maybe I should even track changes and add comments in the margins.
