Storyline

Two FBI agents, fighting the departmental stigma of backroom boys - those who try to complicate the status quo of simple MMO of crime-solving with academics - work to develop an innovative investigative field incorporating psychology as a method to reveal motive. They acknowledge classic crime-solving - Means, Motive, Opportunity - as no longer sufficient because criminality is becoming more complicated as Motive graduates from need & greed, to inexplicable and irrational reasons. They theorize applying deeper psychological evaluation will posit new questions. Simply, asking Why will lead to the Who. This series focuses on the development of two men, two agents, a new criminal field and does so through storylines of visiting the sociopathic mind. Written by sasisami

Trivia

In October 2017, Slate reported that Twitter is full of people who mistakenly believe that the actress playing Wendy Carr is Carrie Coon, when in fact Carr is played by Anna Torv. This happened so often that Coon started directly replying to and correcting followers on Twitter who complimented her on her Mindhunter performance, and she also changed her official Twitter bio to read, "That's not me on Mindhunter."

Goofs

Throughout the series we often hear music being played in the background during some scenes. On at least three occasions the music being played was released after the time period the series is set (1977). For example Toto's Hold The Line plays on the car radio in the first episode, despite being released in 1978, as well as Boomtown Rats' I don't like Mondays later in the series, which wasn't released until 1979, as well as Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street - released in 1978.

Smart, intriguing, thats bing worthy
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

After reading some reviews I've come to the conclusion some reviewers should stick to game shows. I found this show to be smart, not once did I have a moment where I knew what was going to happen. The storyline, characters, and integration scenarios had my attention from the beginning to the end. I look forward to a season 2!
