Critic Reviews for Mindhunter Season 1

All Critics (100) | Top Critics (34)

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

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

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

Oct 13, 2017 | 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.

Jonathan Groff anchors the show with his riveting performance as the cerebral Agent Holden Ford, an earnest, confident and socially awkward innovator.

May 22, 2020 | Full Review…

It is a series about the FBI and serial killers. The beginning of the intertwining of the two.

Mar 2, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.

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]

    Loved the show, didn't expect the show to be so smoothly captivating. Before I realised I'd binged watched the whole thing. Beautiful. Hoping for season 3

    One of the best Netflix shows I have watched. The plot is different, but still ever engrossing, it makes this series stand out in a very crowded genre. Characters and their relationships and are developed greatly, can't forget to mention they are acted very well.

    It´s a series that shows the mastery and talent of David Fincher, a great script and excellent performance of the cast and crew.

I recommend you watch this show and I hope you help me get a season 3. Such an amazing show, and there is nothing else like it. Truly can't say anything I didn't like about it, love love love.

    #serialkiller based series, stryline is grt - understanding the minds of killers, what urged them and how they function , by interviewing killers(based on real killers).its similar to real life comparison, character looks come close match of real killers . very well portrayed characters & direction. 1st season - 2 detective with similar mindset, they come up with a strategy to reduce crime by understanding the minds of real killers . it gets difficult as higher authorities r concerned that it would not work it out , convincing them and going forward and doing their job along with Personal issues. I liked #edmundkemper character. and many moments you get goosebumps with this guy.
