It's all very, very dark, which for me is very, very intriguing.

If you are going to spend your weekend guiltily luxuriating in a show about the depths of human depravity, you might as well make it a stylish one.

"Mindhunter" is deeper, richer, and more affecting this go round, even as it steers away from studying proven killers.

Mindhunter's most impressive accomplishment, though, is to weave an engrossing mystery without trivialising these real-life killers and their atrocious crimes. The series fascinates rather than unsettles.

The long-awaited second season of David Fincher's Mindhunter affirms the program as Netflix's strongest drama.

Aug 17, 2019 | Full Review…

All in all, season 2 ups the ante and improves upon the already brilliant 1st season replete with strong performances across the board. If you haven't yet seen this latest Netflix venture you really ought to. It will not disappoint.

I wasn't as turned on by the new season of Mindhunter, but it continues to be a provocative vehicle for raising questions about workplace ethics, and gender, sexual and racial politics.

Mindhunter stumbles by linking the intimate lives of its protagonists with those of the psychopaths they interview and stalk. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's all wonderfully rich material that the creative team, headed by David Fincher, makes the most of. And there's plenty of movement plot-wise, too.

Audience Reviews for Mindhunter: Season 2

  • 17h ago
    Superb second season that builds on the first and even makes it better, delving deeper into the process of hunting serial killers along with the politics involved. The cast remains uniformly excellent, with Holt McClannay really getting a chance to shine when his family life starts to affect his work and vice versa. Behind the camera, the show runners get deeper into the evolution of the FBI profiling unit, along with pitch perfect depictions of many of the murdereres they interviewed (Charles Manson is a standout, as he is rightly depicted as the crazy fraud he is). The main plot line revolves around the Atlanta Child Murders, which is a perfect showcase for how the FBI is trying to track a killer when the politics won't let them do it properly (every time they try to explain the killer is black, it hits resistance from the politicians and FBI who want to blame the KKK). Overall, a superb crime drama that ranks of some of the best on Netflix.

    The writing and direction of the show is great, but the main actor is not good, and ruins it for me
