Critic Reviews for Mindhunter Season 1

All Critics (97) | Top Critics (33)

It's talk heavy, slick, Fincher crime adapted awesomely for the small screen.

Feb 9, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Most TV crime dramas are whodunits. Columbo famously reversed things by starting with the murder, and making it a "How'd he get him?" Mindhunter, in contrast to both those approaches, is all about motive. It's a "Whydunit."

Mindhunter, like Ford, is an odd duck, but oddness is its virtue.

Sometimes it's funny. Often it's chilling. But however you take it, at least "Mindhunter" is working a fresh angle.

... Mindhunter is plodding at times but promising in the main.

The show's at its most absorbing when it's spending time with monsters...

Oct 13, 2017 | Full Review…

This show has not just entertained me for an hour at a time, but instead has peaked my interest far beyond that.

David Fincher has made two great episodes, leaving his mark but without cannibalizing the proposal. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 8, 2019 | Full Review…

There has never been a more timely release date for a show about why men do the terrible things they do, or a better time to watch men work backwards, trying to figure each other out, saying what women already know.

Jul 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Mindhunter is one of the most addictive Netflix series so far. [Full review in Spanish]

Nov 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Mindhunter is a mesmerizing and haunting tale as we watch engaging characters get inside the heads of serial killers.

May 16, 2019 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

Mindhunter expertly satirizes a now well-worn crime genre, in which the solver of crimes takes center stage, rather than the crimes themselves, or their victims.

    Great show, I would highly recommend watching and I hope they keep making more seasons. I really am waiting on the third season.

    Wow.... I don't know how I missed this show for this long. But David... David.. David... You can't hide these things from me. It's a long form zodiac with a very interesting origin story.

    I love so much about this show: the writing, the acting, the tone, and the cinematography, everything is on point. Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as Holden Ford and Bill Tench are amazing, and their interactions are hilarious. Cameron Britton as Edmund Kemper is terrifying and made me tense every time he was on screen. What really gets me is this shows detailed, cinematic shots, every scene is just beautifully captured.

    it's actually.......pretty bland. the interaction with his girlfriend late in season isn't needed. many 5* reviews here have to be fake.

    I mean unless this show takes a giant turn.... I could only make it through episode 4. The dialogue between characters at times seems tilted and awkward. Debbie's character is completely awful and her creation as a plot device seems so forced. I and many others and very interested in the psychology and such behind serial killers which is why I believe I gave this show such a chance also why I believe this show has such inflated reviews. The only noteworthy acting I saw was the guy who played the serial killer Ed Kemper. In short the concept of the show is very appealing. The writing is
