Stuck to watching this at a regular one-a-week pace & loved it a lot.

The writing, acting & direction were top-class from start-to-finish & it remained consistent despite Fincher only directing the first & last two episodes. I found it to be completely fascinating throughout.

Not for everyone though as the lack of a central crime-based story will frustrate some. My mum for example, loves crime dramas but hated this as "nothing happens!!!".

I didn't quite understand the loner guy with moustache bits - is that something they're setting up, or did I miss some connection somewhere?

Halfway through S2. This show is a masterpiece. The quality of writing and acting...it's utterly compelling conversations one after the other.

The way there's also little moments seeing a character's subtle terror when finding a half open back door in the middle of the night.

How many episodes does Fincher direct and any other interesting guest ones?

He does the first three, then Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of the Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) does the next two and then the remainder are by Carl Franklin.

Just an incredible second season, certainly up there with the best shows Netflix have made.

Its utterly engrossing for me. I'm glued to the screen when its on. As said, people may find it too talky. My uncle complained its just people having conversations and yeah, I agree, but its top quality drama

It is exactly that - just people having conversations, but it is so good. All of the conversations seem to be meaningful and for some unexplainable reason, they're all compelling. Even better, you can actually follow what's going on - unlike a lot of American TV, it's not riddled with hip dialogue and rasping voices that make you want to reach for the subtitle button.

A bit of an aside, but I read mainly fantasy, and I find that those scenes where two characters are talking, and something significant is revealed in an atmosphere of creeping dread are far more riveting than a bloody battle involving 10,000 soldiers. It's the same with this series - we don't need car chases or rooftop shoot-outs.

Just watched S2 ep 1 and although I'm tempted to dive straight into the next episode, I want to watch one a night at most. Brilliant TV.

Just finished season 2. It's so good, as others said there's nothing exciting or action packed, yet I was gripped throughout. Compelling I think is the word I would use.

This little section caught my eye on a YouTube article recently. Not so much about the accent, but more that the writers used lines from the actual interviews, in some cases, word for word.

Exec producer David Fincher’s busy schedule precipitated the move. The show has not, however, been cancelled.

“David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” a Netflix rep said in a statement to TVLine. “He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime felt it wasn’t fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own.”
