It's talk heavy, slick, Fincher crime adapted awesomely for the small screen.

The show's at its most absorbing when it's spending time with monsters...

Most TV crime dramas are whodunits. Columbo famously reversed things by starting with the murder, and making it a "How'd he get him?" Mindhunter, in contrast to both those approaches, is all about motive. It's a "Whydunit."

Mindhunter, like Ford, is an odd duck, but oddness is its virtue.

Sometimes it's funny. Often it's chilling. But however you take it, at least "Mindhunter" is working a fresh angle.

... Mindhunter is plodding at times but promising in the main.
