Great premise turned into an engaging TV series whose protagonists are its major flaw. It's almost insulting watching the main heroes congratulating themselves for cracking the case based on their own projections of how things went on. Serious topics are explored in a very much childish way, as if we are watching freshmen playing with their new toy instead of FBI agents. But it's very enjoyable childish play to watch
I love the acting it's so good, i love the story, i love the dialogues, whoa. Psychological impact that this made on me is so big. Solid emotional core. Character build up is handled so skillfully. Whole set up grew more on me every episode. Looking forward to S2
Malgré un épisode pilote plutôt lent et peu charmeur dans le bassin des séries qui nous sont offertes aujourd'hui, Mindhunter est écrite avec une intelligence remarquable, tenue par des comédiens en pleine forme. Un récit différent, mature, mais pas pour les amateurs d'action et de rebondissements spectaculaires.
I think it succeeds largely through the casting of Groff. It's hard to imagine another actor being able to play this role without being creepy, and I think it has to do with the ambiguity that results from a gay actor playing straight. (Go ahead and call that out as potentially offensive. It's just a fact that it affects the performance.)
Fincher works his Zodiac-magic again. Quite a relief to finally see a decent series without the usual celebrities in a protagonist role. The predictable drama and change in storyline and behaviour of the characters, however, has made me not look forward to season 2. Also disappointing is the protagonist as a 'Sheldon Cooper meets Sherlock Holmes' type of guy, and the casting of the actor portraying him.
