Goofs

As Ford and Tench are driving away from Iowa, the song playing on the radio is "Crying." Even though the original version by Roy Orbison was released in 1961, the version playing was from Don McLean, which was on his 1978 album "Chained Lightning" and wasn't released as a single until late 1980.

Quotes

Holden Ford: You get onto a crowded elevator, and you face the opposite direction, the back of the elevator, and everybody freaks out. They're uncomfortable for reasons they can't even articulate. But if you turn around and face the front, everybody relaxes.
Bill Tench: Okay. Well, how do we do that?
Holden Ford: What do we have in common? What unites us? What keeps us all awake at night?

One of the best pilot episodes i have ever seen.
18 October 2017 | by giorgosmmtSee all my reviews

The writing and the directing of this episode was excellent.Mindhunter's pilot episode gets you inside the mind of the protagonist and the goals he has, without giving so much attention to his backstory,which is an interesting approach to the main protagonist. Fincher work seems very carefully orchestrated, making it clear that he has put a lot of effort in this one. The one thing that seem irrational to me is the low score this episode has. It definitely doesn't deserve such low rating.

9,5/10
