Is this the worst show I've ever watched on Netflix? Yep.
22 August 2019 | by justintannerpw1See all my reviews

I can't take the bad writing. I went back in and got as far as Manson, but I couldn't stop groaning. The scene with Kemper, who was marvelous in season one, was so lamely written I got angry (why does every character have to be Shecky Green? Nobody was cracking jokes during the first season, now everyone speaks in "Show Runner-Ese" that bland generic, non specific language where everyone Is being wry all the time.) I can't think of another show that the bed quite as badly - Maybe Roseanne in the final season when the family won the lottery. I watched Mindhunter in the first place because it was subtle and the scenes were snaky and full of telling details. it was for grown ups who didn't need everything to be telegraphed and every point hammered in again and again and again. This season nobody sounds even remotely human. There has never been a second where I've been confused or scared or interested. Here am I am again writing a pointless review. But I'm upset. I waited two years...for THIS? ugh. I'm going back to reading books.
