Audience Reviews for Mindhunter: Season 1

    Good acting, etc. Just way too boring for me. Definitely NOT a thriller. I couldn't finish the first season.
  • Jul 13, 2022
    Great cast, original must watch TV
  • Apr 19, 2022
    The phenomenon of serial killing is as much as it is scary and repulsive, also extremely fascinating. Even though probably every country in the world has one of them, the US stands aside from all others when it comes to numbers. It's also there we find most of the famous ones, as so many popular culture elements about and much of the scientific criminology studies on the issue also come from this country. Take nothing away from Britain and Jack the Ripper, but on this topic the US is in a league of its own. No wonder then that a drama series about some of the pioneer work on profiling for this kind of crime and studies on these murderers is American. Without getting cliché and stereptypical Mindhunter succeeds in portraying both the FBI personnel but very much also the serial killers in a credible fashion. Most impressing is perhaps the casting of the actors who play them, appearing almost frighteningly like the originals. All over the cast is brilliant, and though there periodically might be a bit too much personal side themes in the plot, there's hardly a dull moment.

    like the idea of this show and how every serial killer (actor) actually look like the ones irl but extremely boring, has too many unnecessary scenes
  • Jan 19, 2022
    What the hell is this? The writing mixed with the terrible acting of the main character constantly reminds me that I'm watching a show. I'm so confused why this is getting such a high score on here. I couldn't even finish the first episode
  • Nov 30, 2021
    If you're interested in serial killers this is fantastic show that mixed real life with a presumed fictional story line of FBI agents who interview actual life serial killers. They do a great job with casting these killers like Ed Kemper and Charles Manson. But the casting in general is very good.
  • Nov 21, 2021
    Brilliance in every aspect !
  • Nov 11, 2021
    Everything from the acting down to clothing and cinematography was perfection. Jonathan Groff is perfect in his buttoned up character and Holt McCallany as well in his gruff but good guy role. Their chemistry was incredible. But to me the whole show was stolen by Cameron Britton as the serial killer Ed Kemper. Absolutely nailed all Kemper's personality, voice, and demeanor.
  • Oct 25, 2021
    It is interesting. Just okay. There are LOTS of interviews of incarcerated serial killers. Not a lot of action. Mostly psychological stuff. It has one production trait I find very odd. The background sounds are much louder (and in the foreground). It is to the point where it is distracting and annoying.
  • Oct 20, 2021
    Can't believe I've slept on this series for so long. Definitely my new addiction.
