Mindhunter Season Two Has Already Got 100% On Rotten Tomatoes
The enthralling, unsettling and quite frankly amazing second season of Netflix's Mindhunter only dropped on Friday afternoon around the world.
In that short time, it seems fans and critics have been absolutely loving it.
On the review website Rotten Tomatoes, the aptly named 'Tomatometer', which produces a score based off the critic's views, has given the second instalment to the David Fincher directed series a stunning 100 per cent.
Not an easy feat.
The reviews are dripping in praise for the actors, the characters, the story and the way it keeps the audience hooked on every second.
Ben Travers from IndieWire wrote: "Minhunter is deeper, richer, and more affecting this go round, even as it steers away from studying proven killers."
Ed Power from the Daily Telegraph added: "Mindhunter's most impressive accomplishment, though, is to weave an engrossing mystery without trivialising these real-life killers and their atrocious crimes. The series fascinates rather than unsettles."
While Vox's Emily VanDerWerff said: "Finding a way to never show that which is supposed to be scaring us is so, so, so hard, and Mindhunter succeeds at it more often than not, usually by careful shot selection, terrific performances, and expertly calibrated dialogue."

While the audience's opinion was a little lower than full marks, a not too bad 91 per cent, it still shows that this is a formidable season.
We get to see agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) back in action as the FBI officers tasked with delving into the sick, twisted and confronting minds of serial killers, rapists and abusers.
Last season we were given the likes of Ed Kemper, Montie Rissell, Jerry Brudos and Richard Speck and it certainly kept us up at night considering these were real people who did depraved things. So that's why it's exciting to get another round of blood, murder and psychopaths for season two.
Because who needs sleep?
The second season will be focusing on the Atlanta murders of 1979-81 where at least 28 children, adolescents and adults were killed and the BTK killer, who killed 10 people in Kansas between 1974 and 1991.
Along with David Fincher, directors this season also include Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James ) and Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress).
There'll be nine episodes this time, compared to the first season's 10 - but that should be plenty to keep you happy for the time-being.
