Mindhunter 7/10 A semi-historical, stylish noir about the origins of the FBI behavioral sciences unit and criminal profiling. Overall great show, but one of the worst pilot episodes I've ever seen. Slow pacing, boring psych babble, dull interaction, long tedious scenes between characters/actors with zero chemistry. The main actor is really bad, he talks like Andy Sandburg doing a Mark Whalburg impression the whole time. It took me multiple attempts to finish episode 1 with no intention of watching the season. But... I wasn't able to find anything better to watch so I let episode 2 run in the background. The show picked up fast once the interviews with the serial killers started. Sounds fucked up but the murderous interviewees make this show. Ed Kempler, the character and actor, saved this from a thumbs down and DNF. There is something intriguing about real-life serial killers talking about why they do the fucked up shit they do. For a show as hyped as this the pilot should've been a lot better. Overall season 1 delivers.
