“Set in 1977 – in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation – Mindhunter revolves around FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), who interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how they think with the hope of applying this knowledge to solving ongoing cases.”
Mindhunter is a curious show. It’s not a procedural drama, but certainly has elements of the case-of-the-week style. It’s slow-paced, but I couldn’t stop myself from watching the last three episodes in one sitting. It’s a television series that looks like a movie, featuring snappy montages juxtaposed with a distinctive dark grey and blue colour palette and long still scenes of two people talking.
