Javier, Lacey and Chris get deep into each other's psyches as they review the first half of Netflix's new Serial Killer drama, Mindhunter!

 

Mindhunter is a true-to-life cop drama, set in the late 1970s where two FBI agents expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. Starring Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, and created by Joe Penhall. This is based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
