Wow, I don’t think I have ever watched an entire series so quickly. I didn’t mean to, I had every intention of making this my new Monday Morning show (I work nights on Mondays now so I have a little extra time to myself in the AM) but I just could not stop watching. I watched a bit on Friday, a bit Saturday after work, and then just binged 4 episodes today.
I have lots of thoughts but let me just say this series really makes it hard to watch anything else. The bar is set so high. The writing, the acting, the direction…it is just SO DAMN GOOD.
I made the mistake of trying to watch the new ‘Veronica Mars’ with dinner afterwards and very nearly shut it off mid-episode because it is not good. And it probably wouldn’t bother me so much, but now that I’ve tasted some delicious high quality sushi, this grocery store brand isn’t cutting it.
ANYWAY, this season of Mindhunter was just so well crafted. I didn’t think they could make the show MORE compelling than last season, but they did. I think shifting the focus from Holden to Tench and Wendy was wise, but it also let them explore some other themes and issues of the time.
Anyone else finished the show yet? I might type something of substance up about it later but right now I’m just like OMG THAT WAS SO GOOD OH YEAH.
