When Netflix hires David Fincher to direct the first two episodes of a new series, the odds are pretty good the show is going to be amazing. Sure, we only have a sample size of one (House of Cards), but that's good enough for me. Mindhunter is about two FBI agents setting out to understand the world of serial killers. At least I think that's the premise. It feels like if Zodiac and Silence of the Lambs had a baby and then Netflix kidnapped it and sold it for profit.
