TV WORTH WATCHING:

MANHUNT

HBO, 8 p.m. ET; 5/1/2013


This new documentary looks at the sort of lengthy, patient, ongoing investigative work that led to the identification of the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden. Its narrative begins well before that of Zero Dark Thirty, and its female protagonists are a bit different than Jessica Chastain’s character in that film, but this is the real deal. For more on Manhunt, see Eric Gould’s Cold Light Reader.
