Re. that scene where they refer to the crybaby killer's wife as a 'solid 8'.  I'm pretty sure that wasn't something people did in the late '70s.  Ergo this program is irredeemable garbage and should be avoided at all costs, even though aside from that it's really good.

Rate things out of ten? No way a 70s person could come up with that.

Come on, assigning women 1-10 hotness ratings just wasn't something people did in casual conversation back then, and the sheriff immediately picked up the cue like he just saw an episode of  the Mary Tyler Moore show the previous day where Ed Asner called Mary a soft seven.  It's very 2010 onwards.  I get that this is anal bollocks, but period pieces can come crumbling down from stuff like that.

I am not reading this thread until I have seen the whole series as I am spoiler-phobic but is anyone else put off by the actor playing Ed Kemper loolking almost exactly like Peter Kay, playing some sort of character

Peter Kay??? No he looks like Eric Warehiem and David Morrisey's love child.

Absolutely loved this. Brilliant cast top to bottom. Menancing and creepy like Fincher’s best work, but with a great dry sense of humour throughout.

Happy to hear they’re planning a second season. I need more now!

I watched a bit of the real Ed Kemper interviews last night, and yeah, Cameron Britton really nails the performance, his accent, inflections, and tone. Chilling stuff.

Really enjoyed this. First drama in about a half dozen that hasn't got turned off on account of stretching fuck all material over 8 hours. 8/10 and pissed all over recent shite like Ozark, Westworld, Stranger Things, Godless etc

Is it better than Cracker?

Yes, I think it's better than Frank Carson's catchphrase that wasn't "it's the way you tell 'em".

Enjoyed this series a lot.

**SPOILER**

Since in real life matey in the pre-credits sequences doesn't actually get caught until 2005 I am guessing he's never going to figure in the show as more than a creepy scene setter?

Shame they didn't have Richard Speck with them lovely tits he grew while in prison. Phwoar.

I think they'll feature his crimes in the 2nd series but obviously the cat-and-mouse game they play via profiling at this early stage wouldn't be good enough to catch him since like the Zodiac he targetted somewhat random victims and enjoyed sending out a lot of taunting letters. I'm sure this will inform their research into other killers in the 2nd series but as we know his hand isn't tipped until a few decades after his initial killing spree, most likely they may show that resolve in a later series.

I read that Season 2 will be mainly set in Atlanta covering Wayne Williams and the Atlanta child murders.

Kind of makes sense I guess - BTK wasn't caught until the nineties was he?  I suppose they may have him in the background for a couple of seasons depending on the timeframe, would make sense to show someone they took a long time to catch

Yes, it wouldn't make sense for them to cover the BTK stuff extensively because it would go nowhere, more likely feature his spree as background stuff over the course of the series, as they did with him gearing up from security system installation man with a hair-trigger temper into someone with an obvious pent up penchant for murderous fantasy as the first series went on.

Has anyone watched any of the real Ed Kemper interviews? Mindhunter is not lying when it says he's initially quite an interesting and articulate guy but my God he just will not fucking shut up. Anecdotes that go on and on and on and on and on. I wondered if it was sitting in a cell for decades that had done that to him, but I think he had a bit of a rep for it prior to his arrest.

I really like how the character called Holden Down The Fort always looks wide-eyed and surprised at every revelation. That's really good acting that is. Look interested. No, more interested. Look like everything you discover is the most interesting thing you've ever been told. Great.

He was rejected from joining the police but would hang around cop bars and spitball with them, keeping abreast of the information on forensics and details they had about his own murders, he'd have to be superemely confident to be so flagrant and fairly braggadocious with it I imagine.

It’s officially been renewed now.

Quote
“Hopefully we’ll have five seasons,” McCallany remarked to Esquire. “The five-season bible I read was approximately a 60 to 70 page document that just laid out the broad strokes: a much more detailed rundown of season one, and then an overview of what potential subsequent seasons would look like.”

Yes up to part 4, it is excellent and surprisingly light considering the subject matter. The girlfriend in it appears to exist purely to be fucked then say something that triggers yer fellow to his next revelation though, which is a bit shit. They should have cut her character from the script altogether. Will probably finish it tomorrow, I like how they're ominously seeding Rader with little cameos in the early episodes too, I presume he takes centre stage later.

There's a couple of videos on Youtube showing his interviews side by side with the actor playing him and how well he got his speech patterns and mannerisms

Watched the whole thing now, it does keep up the quality, especially in the performances. Got to agree about Rader though, why are they seeding him in a show set in the late 70s? Can't see how they're going to be able to make much use of him, even in future series.


I recently watched a documentary from as late as 2003 where they're still speculating who btk was and whether he'd ever be caught. It's not like Gary ridgeway where he'd been arrested a dozen times during the 80s and lots of cops wee certain it was him before he was eventually caught. Nobody had the slightest idea it was Rader until he made that schoolboy error with the computer disk in 2005.
