Why is Mindhunter Season 2 Better Than the First? | Rotten Tomatoes TV

– Tell me, who’s the one you want more than anything? – Manson. – I’ll get you Manson. – Season 2 of Netflix’s Mindhunter is a certified fresh, 100% on the Tomatometer. But just why do fans and critics think it’s even better than season 1? Lets discuss right now on the The Ketchup. The 97% certified fresh first season set the stage for the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit and agent Holden Ford.

While season 2 dives deeper into the lives of agent Bill Tench and Dr. Wendy Carr. And as we see the team continue to apply the research they’ve learned to ongoing cases like the Atlanta Child Murders. The bad guys are even badder this season. Oh and that creepy show open is still the same.

Many critics praised season 2, like Brian Lloyd of entertainment.ie who said, quote: “Compared to the last season ‘Mindhunter’ Season 2 works on a bigger canvas, but doesn’t lose any of its focus.” With IndieWire’s Ben Travers adding: “‘Mindhunter’ is deeper, richer, and more affecting this go around, even as it steers away from studying proven killers. And this season is already a fan favorite! With an audience score right around 95%, same as season 1. And E.P. David Fincher’s work as director on 3 episodes, is just one of the many reasons, because there’s also the shows uncanny ability to cast the literal perfect actors to portray real life serial killers.

Hope those make up artists aren’t working on Halloween. And fans on Twitter just can’t get enough of the interview with Charles Manson. Which is summed up pretty nicely with this comment: “Can someone give the guy who plays Charles Manson in Mindhunter every single acting award there is?” Welp, that’s Australian actor Damon Herriman. Who also happens to play Charles Manson in the new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, so talk about making a murderer.

But let’s not forget he was also Dewey Crowe in Justified so shout out to all my Justified peeps. – I am Dewey goddamn Crowe. – Eh, you’re Charles Manson. Viewers have also been happy to learn more about the rest of the team outside of the basement. Like one Twitter user who had my favorite comment about Anna Torv’s character by saying: “Wendy Carr in a bathtub drinking wine is my new religion.” Amen to that. And Fernando on Facebook, who watched the whole season in a day and a half, thinks that Bill’s family storyline was great.

With amazing acting and writing. And probably the creepiest kid since the Ring’s Aidan Keller but that’s just me. And as far as those fan theories about Jonathan Groff’s character being a psycho killer himself, that may or may not be put to rest this season. – Do you think so? – But when it comes to a third season of Mindhunter, fans are praying that it will happen. I mean we all know there’s a special graveyard where popular Netflix shows go after 2 seasons.

But while there’s been no official word just yet the success of the first 2 seasons along with Fincher’s original plan of this being a 5 season run, make it seem pretty likely. As far as what will go down in season 3 we know the real person Holden Ford is based on, John E. Douglas, consulted for the FBI on serial killer cases up until 1996. And considering the BTK Strangler, who we’ve now seen in both seasons, wasn’t captured until 2005. We could see the show jump time periods at some point. But would that mean recasting characters?

And if it does continue on this current timeline, season 3 could very well feature other high profile killers from that era, like Gary Heidnik aka the real life Buffalo Bill, and Ted Bundy. Maybe we’ll get a repeat performance from Zach Efron. – No – All right, well, it’s time to kick it off over to you now. Where does Mindhunter rank among the recent flood of true crime shows, and is this the best show on Netflix? Also is it just me or does the FBI director kinda look like Dr. Evil?
