Must Watch TV: Mindhunter

Post by Mark

I just recently finished watching the Netflix crime drama Mindhunter, and I loved it. The show is based on true stories and follows two FBI detectives in the late 70s, during the early days of criminal psychology and profiling. Because it’s based on reality, it feels like a well-done documentary at times like when we got to see how the term “serial killer” came about and various other ideas and interrogation methods we see today on current crime drama shows. Mindhunter is like the prequel to all crime shows.

The criminal cases covered on the show are all fascinating, but the characters and their own stories are as interesting, and by the end of the season, you’ll be attached to all of them. But, one of my favorite things about the show is how they’ve made the 70s cool again, in the same way Stranger Things brought back the 80s. The wardrobe on the show (especially Wendy’s outfits) along with the cars and the vintage electronics (that tape recorder used in the opening scene is so hot) just makes me want to go back and live in the 70s, which I kinda did over the past week…

Over the weekend I borrowed my old 1973 Datsun 240z from my friend whom I had sold it to. I hadn’t been in the car or driven it since I sold it nearly a year ago, but the show really made me miss it. Binge-watching Mindhunter and then stepping into a car from the same era and listening to music of that era, it felt like time travel for a little bit.

If you’re looking for a new show to binge watch and haven’t watched Mindhunter yet, then add this to your list. It’s available on Netflix Kuwait.

    Loved Mindhunter!

    Out of curiosity, what 70s tunes were you playing in your old Datsun?

    Just finished it (Mindhunter) last night and absolutely loved it! Any suggestions on what to watch next? I’m one of the few who didn’t like Stranger Things, I guess I prefer more realistic shows.

      If you have not seen it, you might want to try the British crime drama Line of Duty (multiple seasons).. and also may be Happy Valley.. ..both riveting.

        The End of the Fucking World sounds interesting, 8.5 rating too. And yup, I’ve watched Happy Valley, binge watched it. Happy Valley, Broadchurch, The Fall, The Missing, The Killing, etc, etc – I have a thing for crime/drama/mystery/thriller shows.
