    Really good show. Glad to see Anna Torv again after Fringe. The office being in the basement has to be an homage to the X-Files. Mulder was doing criminal profiling in the FBI before he did paranormal shit.

    Finished S1 recently and am a big fan. The acting and directing were top notch and the subject matter is fascinating to me. My desire to punch the new detective in the face is at 10 out 10

    Finally finished this last week. Flew through the first six in October and then fell out of it with other shit going on. Happy I finally got to it. Good stuff, excited for season 2.
    100% agree on this.

    Lol this is a perfect summary of my criticism of the show.

    It just, like, ends. Not much climax and feels like they just ran out of material.

    By the way, the Atlanta Monster (about the Atlanta child murders) podcast just completed a few weeks ago. It was done by the same guy that did Up and Vanished, if you listened to that. Worthwhile listen if you want to get a good knowledge of that case(s) before all this is mentioned in S2.

    Finally got around to watching this. Great show. I went to school for criminal sociology so this was right up my alley. I think the show messed with my head now. I was at the mall last Sunday. My four year old wanted to do the bungee trampoline. All I could think while the guy was strapping her in was about the nickel for a tickle principal.

    Second season will be released sometime in August. No word on whether Cameron Britton reprises his role as Ed Kemper -- though, interestingly enough, Britton will play Richard Jewell (Atlanta's Olympic Park bombing) in the second season of Manhunt. Mindhunter, on the other hand, will apparently focus at least in part on Manson, Berkowitz, and the Atlanta child murders (Wayne Williams).

    Sweet. Been waiting for the second season. One of my favorite shows on Netflix. Was also a big fan of manhunt.

    What’s Manhunt? Yes, I’m too lazy to Google and would rather rely on a TMB review.

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7801964/

    Manhunt is the real life story of how the murder of French National, Amelie Delagrange, on Twickenham Green in August 2004 was eventually linked to the murders of Marsha McDonnell in 2003 and the abduction and murder of Milly Dowler as she travelled home from school in 2002.

    Walking home following a night out with friends, 22 years old Amelie was savagely attacked and struck several times on the back of the head with a hammer.
    Although relatively experienced in murder investigation, DCI Sutton was assigned to the case by London’s Metropolitan Police.

    Hard working and instinctive, Sutton dedicated himself to finding Amelie’s killer. With very little evidence, his painstaking approach and the diligence of his fellow officers gradually led to breakthroughs in the case.

    Rather than give Manhunt a review, Virgil Caine , I'll just say that if you liked Mindhunter, you'll almost certainly like Manhunt. Extremely similar but different enough not to feel like a redux. Solid writing, acting, and production. It's a no-brainer recommendation for fans of Mindhunter. Highly doubt that you'll find a TMBer who liked one but not the other.

    edit: Biggest difference between the two is that Mindhunter focused on the nascent field of forensic psychology, whereas Manhunt focused on the nascent field of forensic linguistics. Mindhunter was more stylistic and character-driven, whereas Manhunt was more technical and plot-driven.

    After watching mindhunter, I can not think of the nickle tickler every time I’m somewhere with my girls and there’s a middle aged man that helps with said activity. Like the guy that puts the straps on the kids and bounces them on the trampolines in the mall. That show has ruined those activities for me.

    Started Manhunt last night and ended up binging through 5 of the 8 episodes. So yeah, I enjoy it.
