What is the true purpose of imprisonment, and is it more important that we punish those who commit crimes, or understand why they do it so that it can be prevented? It looks like questions such as those may be the bread and butter of the new crime series, Mindhunter.

The series, created by The Road’s John Penhall and executive produced by David Fincher, takes place in 1979, and it follows FBI agents, who interview serial killers, in hopes that it’ll help them solve current murders. After all, how do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?

The premise itself is definitely intriguing, and this odd trailer somehow bolsters my own personal interest in it. I say the trailer is odd because it doesn’t seem to fit the tone. More than anything, it makes it feel more like a network TV show than a Netflix show. That being said, I’m a fan of crime stories, and I especially love it when they delve into the psychological aspect of it all.
