There’s a science to even how the most disturbing people behaves.
I’m a fan of the popular tv series “Criminal Minds”, so as Netflix released “Mindhunter”, I was fascinated to learn more about how the BAU, the Behavioral Analysis Unit, was created at the FBI in Quantico. I wasn’t disappointed; the show tells the story about cutting through the red tape of the FBI — and the chilling interviews with several notorious serial killers.
Jerry Silfwer’s quick notes
The audio design in Mindhunter is just insanely gripping and chilling.
The main story is accompanied by several side stories, but these side stories are far from interesting enough to complement the overall storyline.
Serial Killer Psychology
it’s still to this day utterly fascinating to glimpse into the mind of a serial killing unsub. It’s an uncomfortable examination of the darkest aspects of our modern society.
Behavioural Analysis Unit (BAU)
As a long-time fan of Dangerous Minds (tv-series), it’s a pure joy to gain some insight into how the unit was once formed within the FBI.
The Second Season
Moving from the first to the second season was seamless, but halfway through the second season, the creators just lost their grip on the main storyline which instead turned into a traditional police work and bureaucracy.
