From the little I've seen, the high standards of season 1 haven't dipped a bit.
August 20, 2019
Thankfully, season 2 delivers more structure and story across nine episodes, more deeply acquainting us with the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 20, 2019
That Mindhunter manages to be a satisfying FBI mystery on top of that is a testament to its sharp directing and mostly smart writing, even as some threads never quite come together.
August 20, 2019
Mindhunter grips you -- not with the promise of some big reveal, but for what it chooses to unravel in the story of killers who've controlled their seductive narratives for far too long.
August 20, 2019
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.
August 20, 2019
What's most compelling about Mindhunter is the way that, like its protagonists, it investigates the human response to violent crime and, in particular, the way that close proximity to such crime can burnish one's image.
August 19, 2019
Mindhunter's second season embraces a world where enduring mysteries don't always have satisfying conclusions.
August 19, 2019
While it mostly hangs together for now, there are already more signs of strain than there were back in 2017.
August 19, 2019
It is effective, haunting, scary, and one of the most provocative shows ever and hands down one of the best shows of the year
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
August 19, 2019
While the series benefits from giving everyone more to do, the pacing could be quicker.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 19, 2019
Things really fall apart before they come back together for our Mindhunters.
August 19, 2019
After all is said and done, Mindhunter's sophomore effort shows an ambition when it comes to its craft.
August 19, 2019
"Mindhunter" succeeds again because its quality has not diminished.
August 19, 2019
Mindhunter season 1 established the rules. Mindhunter season 2 proceeds to break them.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
August 19, 2019
David Fincher takes a perverse, almost lusty thrill in exploring the minds of serial killers. It's incredibly nerdy fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 18, 2019
The series feeds more on the idea that knowledge and understanding of the human condition - in all its sometimes horrific glory - is what's truly fascinating.
August 18, 2019
Finding a way to never show that which is supposed to be scaring us is so, so, so hard, and Mindhunter succeeds at it more often than not, usually by careful shot selection, terrific performances, and expertly calibrated dialogue.
August 18, 2019
While Mindhunter: Season 2 doesn't exactly race out of the gate as it builds on the foundation of Season 1, it remains a compelling and impeccably shot crime thriller.
August 18, 2019
"Mindhunter" is deeper, richer, and more affecting this go round, even as it steers away from studying proven killers.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
August 18, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
