Didn't like the first episode but the show is pretty good.

End of show spoiler
The scenes involving the interviews and those about the analysis and contextualization of the behaviours made the show. It got a bit less good once it became more about Holden's drama but that was still solid. The scene with Ed Kemper in the last episode was something.

A friend has been trying to convince me to watch it, in the end I thought that he was so desperate that he wants someone else to suffer with him watching an average show. It was then when I decided that I will not even give it a try.

Yep, personal drama of Holden is straight up boring as hell, interview scenes especially with Kemper is great though

I expected it to be better tbh.

If you watch it more for the concept than for the show/drama, it's quite good and interesting. I also expected something else, but that was worth it regardless. To each his own in the end.

Great little show, excited for Season 2

Holden's personal drama didn't occupy enough screentime to justify complaining about it.

I actually liked his character arc because it served the purpose of setting up next season

Holden's arc was about showing the change that getting into the mould of thinking of those psychopaths could do to his person as well. It's genius, because he could get the killers to talk by getting into their way of thinking and it wasn't done by anyone else, and controversial, since he was bonding with them as well and transgressing rules but it was the only way he could get something. The more the show goes on and the more he doesn't care about rules and gets cocky.

I finished watching this one and I gotta say I really liked it. Minutes flew by like they didn't exist. It's made quite realistic so I can't say I minded Holden's drama. It's life.

It has many positive things and I can't wait to see season 2. Characters are great and I love how subtle it was.

After I finished it, I started watching Mindhunt: Unabomber. We'll see how that goes but first two episodes are quite good.
