Media Center>Netflix: Mindhunter

Anybody else watching this? Amazing show. The main characters are based on John Douglas and Robert Ressler, the first FBI agents to gain insight into the minds of serial killers by interviewing them in prison (Douglas was the basis for Scott Glenn's character in Silence of the Lambs). Set in the late 70s. I'm three episodes in and really enjoying it.

Yeah. I was kind of absentmindedly into it at first because I'm a sucker for period pieces of certain eras, and then it got really good.

Yeah, I agree with the others. It does start kind of slow but hang in there. It gets a lot better. Well made TV with great acting.

I’m ready, I think it originally was supposed to be released at the end of last fall/beginning of winter. Any idea of why it was delayed?

I can't find anything that indicates any delay. So don't know...

Some deets on who might be involved this season:

Dennis Rader, better known as the BTK Killer, will also continue to have a presence in the series.
Interesting to me that it's mainly about Wayne Williams. If folks haven't listed to season 1 of the podcast Monster (at the time called Atlanta Monster) it's pretty interesting.

Haven't been able to find a trailer for season 2 yet.

I adored the first season (hat tip SimplyRed). Have been waiting for this endlessly.

In the meantime, found a great serial killer podcast “Unmasking a Killer” on the Golden State Killer from the late 70s in California.

This is a great series, although the beating off to a vacant women's shoe still disturbs me.

Thanks for the update folks. This is a great show and one of the best Netflix has to offer. Netflix normally releases their show/film trailers near the premiere date so I can't wait to see some footage of Season 2. We won't have to wait too long.

Season 2 of Criminology covered it really well, and de Angelo was arrested during the season, which was pretty cool.

Really it is like Criminal Minds on CBS but it is more deeper and you have to have not a weak stomach over it.

HYPED! Thanks for posting the teaser Baby Lee. David Fincher was pretty heavily involved with season 2 so that's great news.

And the actor that plays Kemper is so great. He was also good in the Umbrella Academy show on Netflix.

Mindhunter is as different from Criminal Minds as Star Trek is different from The Right Stuff.

CM approaches profiling as a network take on an established field of investigation, lots of theatrical shortcuts for episodic drama. [much like Star Trek treats space travel as a given and moves on to interstellar politics and drama]

MH approaches profiling as a historical, slightly dramatized, development of that field from its inception. It shows the nuts and bolts of developing a psychological foundation for investigation from thin air. [much like The Right Stuff dramatized the frustrating and eventually triumphant first steps off the surface of the earth].
