All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

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

Aug 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Compared to the last season, 'Mindhunter' Season 2 works on a bigger canvas, but doesn't lose any of its focus.

Aug 17, 2019 | Rating: 4 / 5 | Full Review…

It already feels like the series is evolving and maturing, becoming more complex as the relationships start to change, both professionally and personally.

Aug 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Those who slept on season one should take note; David Fincher is at his full power on Netflix and makes "Mindhunter" a must-watch.

A stupendous season 2. [Full Review in Spanish]

The series is still far more Zodiac than Seven, but it's also more propulsive now, with no fewer than three ongoing investigations.

Maybe everything really is coming up Mindhunter. But in the dark and cruel world these characters live in, it all seems awfully convenient.

As with last season, David Fincher directs the first episode with his usual panache, especially during the cold open.

There's a recalibrating of Ford that includes panic attacks and a consequent popping of Valium, one of several character developments to remind us that Mindhunter isn't too cool for detective-show tropes.

    Better than Season 1. Serial killers well portrayed.

    SEASON 2 was good but a little messy in storytelling

    Dark, twisted, and amazing! It keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole season. Great preformances from everyone especialy Holt McCallany, featuring a great man hunt in Atlanta that feels like rewatching David Fincher's Zodiac and Seven.

    I've liked season 2 just as much as season one. Definitely some fun twists.
  • 3h ago
    Not as good as season one. Too much extraneous plot lines. For some reason they diminished Holden to focus on Bill's home life. The show lost its way unfortunately.
  • 4h ago
    Took way to long for season 2 to come out, has only 9 episodes and it isn't worth it, unless you're into non-subtle virtual signaling. Spent way to long on the Atlanta murders, with racism taking center stage and the story a very distant afterthought. The acting, as was expected, spot on.

    Easily the best series on NE

    9 episodes are not enough we need more!!
  • 7h ago
    Not as stellar as season 1 , the Atlanta case should've ended in a couple episodes leaving more time to focus on serial killer interviews and BTK developments. Also needed more Kemper as he was the highlight of season one.

    ugh. so much worse than the first season. no proper build up. i dont know if they changed the writers or something. I saw David Finch is still an executive producer but it lost its slow build and anticipation.
