I’ve spent my last two weekends super productively I’d like to think because I’ve successfully finished new seasons of two shows I’d been eagerly waiting for and these are my thoughts about them:
- Mindhunter Season 2 – I had been really desperately waiting for the second season seeing how the first one had ended; for anyone who doesn’t remember, Holden goes to visit Ed Kemper alone and ends up having a massive panic attack. Simultaneously, internal affairs has decided to look into the BSU and the members are dealing with the repercussions of this. I watched four episodes together and the fourth episode was the one that actually blew me away. The storyline of the season is as captivating and engaging as the last one was and so many episodes make me desperately feel for Holden. If you’ve seen the first season, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t watch this one. Unfortunately, the ending will again make you want to know whats going to happen next desperately.
- 13 Reasons Why Season 3 – I’ll admit that I actually liked the second season a lot more than I did the first one. This was maybe because of already reading the book, I wasn’t a huge fan of the picturisation. When I first saw the trailer for the new season (with the recurring theme of who killed bryce walker – I was SO excited). The new season introduces a new character named Ani. Ani directs the narrative of every episode and I didn’t like her right from the start. The season starts off really strong and then in the middle falls a bit flat just before picking up again. I shall not deny that one of my absolute favourite part of the season is Clay telling Justin “I’d do anything for you.”, and Justin replying with “Same”. The third season revolves very strongly around personal relationships, around classmates becoming family and ultimately doing anything and everything for each other. I was mildly disappointed and upset with the reveal of the actual killer because it killed me to see who it was, and yet overall I think it was a good season.
Are my reviews enough motivation for you to watch?
