Mindhunter is an American psychological crime thriller television series created by Joe Penhall, based on the 1995 true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.[3] The executive producers include Penhall, Charlize Theron, and David Fincher, the latter of whom has served as the series' most frequent director and de facto showrunner, overseeing many of the scriptwriting and production processes.[4] The series stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv, and it follows the founding of the Behavioral Science Unit in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the late 1970s and the beginning of criminal profiling.[5]

Mindhunter revolves around FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), who operate the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit within the Training Division at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Together, they launch a research project to interview imprisoned serial killers to understand their psychology with the hope of applying this knowledge to solve ongoing cases.[11]

The development of Mindhunter began in 2009 when Charlize Theron gave a nonfiction crime book titled Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit to David Fincher.[18][19] In January 2010 the Mindhunter project was set up at Fox 21, which had optioned the book, along with premium cable channel HBO. Scott Buck was tapped to write the pilot.[20][21] Fincher, who was mostly known as a director and producer in films, felt at that time that television was "completely foreign" until he worked on the political drama House of Cards, for which he co-produced and directed the first two episodes.[18] When Fincher finally felt comfortable with television as a medium after doing House of Cards,[18] Theron suggested playwright and screenwriter Joe Penhall as the project's writer,[18][19] replacing Buck.[21] In December 2015, Mindhunter was moved to streaming service Netflix,[19][21] with Fox 21 dropping out of the project.[21]

In February 2016, Netflix announced that the production of Mindhunter would be based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.[22] Filming began in May 2016,[23] and open casting calls were held on April 16 and June 25, 2016.[24][25] Episode 9 of season 1 was filmed in Moundsville, West Virginia at the West Virginia State Penitentiary.[26] The series was renewed for a second season before its premiere on Netflix.[27]

The character of Holden Ford is loosely based on FBI agent John E. Douglas, on whose book, Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit, the show is based.[28][29] The character of Bill Tench is based on pioneering FBI agent Robert K. Ressler.[30] Wendy Carr is a fictional character based on psychiatric forensic nurse researcher Ann Wolbert Burgess,[31][32] a prominent Boston College nursing professor who collaborated with the FBI agents in the Behavioral Science Unit and procured grants to conduct research on serial murderers, serial rapists, and child molesters.[33][34] Her work is based on treating survivors of sexual trauma and abuse, and studying the thought process of violent offenders.[34] The serial killer characters were modeled on the actual convicted criminals and their prison scene dialogues were taken from real interviews.[35] Although not explicitly stated, it is implied that the ADT serviceman seen in several short vignettes throughout the first season is Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer.[36][37] This is clarified in the second season.[38]

The first season received positive reviews from critics. On Metacritic, the season has a score of 79 out of 100 based on 25 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[46] On Rotten Tomatoes, it has an approval rating of 96% with an average score of 8 out of 10, based on 102 reviews. The site's critics consensus reads: "Mindhunter distinguishes itself in a crowded genre with ambitiously cinematic visuals and a meticulous attention to character development."[47] The first season of Mindhunter was named among the best TV shows of 2017; it was ranked No. 10 on Metacritic's year-end list of the best TV shows of 2017 compiled from rankings by various critics and publications.[48]

The second season was also acclaimed. On Metacritic, the season has an average score of 85 out of 100, based on 12 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[49] On Rotten Tomatoes, the second season holds an approval rating of 99% based on 70 reviews, with an average rating of 8.3 out of 10. The site's critical consensus reads: "Mindhunter expands its narrative horizons without losing sight of the details that made its first season so rich, crafting a chilling second season that is as unsettling as it is utterly absorbing."[50]

The old man's driver wonders why he would hire someone like Denji. The old man explains that Denji is paying them back what his father owned them. The real devil hunters won't give them the devil carcass and Denji is also doing what he is told. The driver offers 100 yen to Denji if he eats his cigarette and Denji gladly accepts. After they leave, Denji spits out the cigarette.

While eating bread at his place, Denji tells Pochita that he heard people put jam on it, but that's just a dream for them. He guesses he will die before he repays the debt and probably won't even get a girlfriend and recalls standing in front of his father's grave with the old man complaining that his father killed himself before paying his debt and tells Denji to gather 700,000 yen by tomorrow or he will chop him to pieces. As the old man leaves, Denji sees a devil with a chainsaw and as he feels dead already, he is fine being killed by it. However, he then sees the devil is bleeding and offers to bite him and drink his blood. As Pochita bites him, Denji states that Pochita needs to pay him back and help him as well. The next day, Denji kills a devil and gives it to the old man, asking him to hire him as a devil hunter.

The man takes him to an abandoned factory and they enter, but Denji is unable to see any devil. The man tells Denji that he is grateful to him as he is loyal as a dog and works for cheap, however he can't stand the dog stench. In that moment, a man with a sword stabs Denji and Pochita from behind. The man explains that even yakuza dream of getting bigger and make more money, so they made a deal with a devil. They wanted power, and the devil wanted dead devil hunters. Zombie Devil then reveals itself and states that the yakuza are dumb and for a bit of power, they chose to become his slaves as his power turns them into zombies. The Zombie Devil doesn't like devil hunters as they kill other devils, and orders his new zombie army to kill Denji. Heavily bleeding, Denji attempts to run, but the zombies catch up to him and start stabbing and chopping him to pieces.

The series is inspired by a number of real Nazi hunters through the decades, but it is not meant to be a specific representation of any of them. It follows a diverse band of Nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City who discover that Nazi war criminals are conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. A parallel plot element is the discovery of Operation Paperclip, the U.S. government operation relocating many German scientists (many of them Nazis) to the U.S.

OK, before we get into chapter 17, let's remind ourselves where we're up to in the adventures of the titular Mandalorian bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal, also currently searing the screen in the acclaimed HBO series The Last of Us), and his cute buddy Grogu (aka Baby Yoda). In the finale of season 2 the Mando dropped off Grogu with everyone's favorite Jedi, Luke Skywalker. So why are Grogu and Din back together

Nevarro has raised a statue of the bounty hunter droid IG-11, which sacrificed itself fighting Imperials. It turns out the statue is made of the droid's actual remaining parts, allowing Mando to resurrect the bot. He quickly changes his mind when it defaults to old programming and goes all Terminator on little Grogu. Leave Baby Yoda alone! Another statue solves the problem, though there was no need for Mando's dreadful pun. 59ce067264
