Just asked about this in the TV thread.  Watched episode 1 earlier today which is a real slow burner and was wondering if it picked up and worth watching going forward.

Judging by the replies in this thread most seemed to agree E1 was a slow one and necessary to set up characters, set the scene and suchlike.

Looking forward to watching more now :)

Well worth sticking with it.

I'm still fucking gutted that there won't be a third series.

He comes across as a very interesting person too whenever you see him interviewed.

If you got the audiobook he probably narrated it himself  ;)

3 episodes in now.  Enjoying it immensely

Characters are great.

Especially Big Ed.  He's great, in a bad way if you know what I mean :)

Once you've watched it, have a look on youtube for the side by side interviews portrayed by the actor and the real Ed Kemper.

Yeah will do Rob

Sort of knew about Ed Kemper anyway but don’t want to read about him in detail until I’ve finished Mindhunter.

So, here I was, waiting around for season 3 to drop at any moment, and just found the show is on a hiatus. Fucking stupid talented Fincher.

Sorry for bumping again. No... Season 3 has not been greenlighted. 

S2E2 felt SO Fincher.  The scene where Bill goes into the house and basement of the BTK killer's first victim reminded me of Se7en.

And as for the actor who played 'Son of Sam', he looks more like David Berkowitz than Berkowitz himself!!!

I'm going to be watching closely for thread bumps myself once I finish S2.

I think it will come back, but Fincher won't be involved.  He hated the whole process during season two, he fired people left, right and centre tossed half the original scripts, he found it completely exhausting according to a recent interview.  He's in pre-production for The Killer, that'll probably take him 18 months.

I'd absolutely take more episodes, even if it would be the final one and without Fincher. I'm gutted he decided not to continue with it, and wish they could just do another. It's not even like he wrote and directed every episode. He's always had his mind on films though, I think. I love his movies, but haven't watched the new one he's done, I think half out of anger he left Mindhunter  ;D - Mind you, I saw a trailer for it and thought it looked pretty bland, and I've not heard many people rave about it as they usually do with his films.

I live in hope of a third season, though. I think it's been the best thing that's came through Netflix, you always knew it'd be pretty good when you heard Fincher would be attached, and it's really not disappointed.

Don't mean to get everyone's hopes up, but ... there's rumours coming now that Fincher is in talks with Netflix for another season ...

This site done an article on it yesterday: https://bloody-disgusting.com/tv/3661288/mindhunter-david-fincher-netflix-reportedly-talking-potential-third-season/

Several other sites have done similar articles suggesting talks are being held. Lead actor Holt McCallany shared an article who are saying the same: https://www.small-screen.co.uk/mindhunter-season-3-netflix-david-fincher/


Not to be dramatic, but I think I'd sacrifice several of my own limbs for this to happen. For the love of Fowler, bring it back.

Yep. When I heard it could be finished, my first thought was 'please just one more season' - but if Fincher truly is on board, two more would be excellent and give them time to carry on properly and finish what they started. Season 2 ended in the early 80s and there's a gold mine of serial killer content that could be explored in another couple of seasons worth.

six makes sense. The seasons seem to be around two years, so that would take to around the time BTK became inactive. He could be “the one that got away” (until he didn’t)

S3 could have them interviewing John Wayne Gacey and Ted Bundy.

All the actors who have portrayed the serial killers have been excellent in it so far, Kemper was exceptional.
