Manhunt: Unabomber Preview “Abri”

Episodes 5 and 6 are my favorite of the series — and every episode has been so good. This week’s “Abri” is Fitz-centric and next week’s episode is Ted-centric. In “Abri,” it’s 1996 and David Kaczynski isn’t sure what to do. His wife, Linda, has read the Manifesto and she’s […]
