As that November 12 launch date gets closer, we're hearing more details about exactly how Disney Plus is going to work.Today's tidbit: sign up and you'll get access to four simultaneous streams, as well as 4K content.That's for the base $7 subscription fee, according to CNET, which makes it a very appealing proposition: for four simultaneous streams and 4K on Netflix, you need to fork out $16 every month (though you might prefer Mindhunter to The Mandalorian).The other option on the table is Disney Plus, ESPN Plus and Hulu for a total of $13 a month, but you only get two simultaneous ESPN Plus streams and one Hulu stream on top of the original Disney package.Speaking to Disney executives, CNET says new episodes of its original series are going to come out weekly – we won't see the same drop of multiple episodes that we do on Netflix (and which causes all that binge watching).Disney is of course going to want to work hard to tempt people to add a Disney Plus subscription on top of Netflix – or instead of Netflix – and it seems like aggressive pricing is going to be one way of doing that.

For devotees of true-crime dramas, one Netflix "Summer Friday" this year will be unlike the rest.The thriller Mindhunter is scheduled to return to the streaming service Friday, Aug. 16, two years after the debut of season 1.Executive Producer David Fincher revealed the info Friday during an interview for KCRW's "The Treatment" podcast.In the upcoming season, the FBI's behavior unit, featuring characters played by lead stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, will interrogate a serial killer about the Atlanta child murders of 1979-81.The drama as a whole is based on Mark Olshaker and former Special Agent John Douglas' 1996 book, "Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit."Fincher has a reputation for hit movies like The Social Network, for which he won best director at the 68th Golden Globe Awards.
Mindhunter, a budding original hit that Netflix first premiered in late 2017, is finally getting a second season, the company has announced.Fans can expect the next batch of episodes to arrive in mid-August, bringing them another 10 episodes following the work of two FBI agents as they seek to unravel the mysteries of the serial killer mindset.Mindhunter is a Netflix original series detailing the work of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench as they probe the minds of serial killers.The show’s first season arrived on Netflix on October 13, 2017 and quickly spiked in popularity, earning praise from viewers and critics alike.It didn’t take long for Netflix to promise that it would return with a second season.As tends to occasionally be the case with Netflix, it took a bit longer than fans had hoped for that second season to arrive.
Netflix’s Mindhunter, the David Fincher-produced crime thriller, will return for a second season on August 16th.The show follows two FBI agents from the Behavioral Science Unit — Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) — as they travel across America to interview psychopaths and serial killers in an attempt to understand their mindset.The new season, which was quickly confirmed after the show’s debut in October 2017, will focus on the Atlanta child murders of 1979–1981, which claimed at least 28 known victims.Fincher first confirmed the release date and revealed more details about the second season on KCRW’s The Treatment podcast.Fincher has been increasingly involved in Netflix projects.The streaming platform announced last month that it would be ordering a second season of its adult animated series Love, Death + Robots, co-created by Fincher and Deadpool director Tim Miller.
David Fincher will be directing his first feature film since 2014, and he’s making it for Netflix .The director of “Seven” and “The Social Network” already helped kick off Netflix’s original content boom by directing episodes of “House of Cards” and “Mindhunter.” In fact, the popularity of Fincher’s films on Netflix was famously one of the reasons the streamer’s executives felt comfortable spending hundreds of millions of dollars on “House of Cards.”As reported in Variety, Fincher’s new film is currently titled “Mank.” It will be a biopic starring Gary Oldman as screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz, who shared credit (and the film’s only Academy Award) with director Orson Welles for writing “Citizen Kane.”While it’s not clear what stance the film will take towards Mankiewicz and Welles, it’s worth noting that some cinephiles (including the critic Pauline Kael) have argued that Mankiewicz deserves more credit for the greatness of “Kane,” which is commonly described as the greatest movie of all time.This sounds like a passion project for Fincher, particularly since the initial script was written years ago by his father Jack, who died in 2003.It’s also a vein of film history that Netflix tapped last year by financing the completion of Welles’ final film, “The Other Side of the Wind.”
And something like Fantastic Fest—the annual Austin, Texas, genre film event that brought us alien love documentaries, Anne Hathaway as kaiju, and a film entirely set in a 911 dispatch center—can practically top my anticipation rankings every year.Netflix's Mindhunter originally seemed like a quick but forgettable green light: grab a dude from Hamilton, make him some kind of authority figure in a crime thing, and darken up the story a bit.Stranger Things without Spoiler Things: It’s dark, different, and still delightfulJonathan Groff (the Hamilton guy) plays upstart FBI agent Holden Ford, a man obsessed with the job and with making his way up the bureau food chain.His odd-couple (err, trio) team of Bill Tench (Holt McCallany as a grizzled, skeptical FBI vet) and Wendy Carr (Anna Torv as an academic psychologist in it for the research data) sizzles every time they're interacting in a scene.That's saying something considering how dynamite Ford's direct interactions with killers can be (Cameron Britton is a revelation as serial killer Ed Kemper, an intimidating physical presence happy to indulge in a little narcissistic "talk about yourself" exercise regularly).

Netflix revealed some images from a new upcoming anthology series, Love, Death & Robots, on Monday, and while the show title may be unfamiliar, some major names are behind it.David Fincher (House of Cards, Mindhunter, Fight Club) and Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator 6) are executive producers on the series.The show is a collection of animated short stories spanning the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres, and Netflix said in a release that episodes are "intended to be easy to watch and hard to forget."(Anyone else getting a Black Mirror vibe?)"Love, Death & Robots is my dream project," Miller said in a statement."it combines my love of animation and amazing stories.
“Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist” is a tough title to live up to, but the Netflix docuseries pulls it off.That’s because the story that “Evil Genius” retells is full of impossible-seeming details — it starts out with a botched bank robbery committed by a man with a bomb attached to his neck and gets stranger from there.In the latest episode of the Original Content podcast, we talk about our reactions to the show — it tells an unforgettable story, but might have benefited from tighter editing.We also mull over the growing genre of true crime miniseries, covering “The Staircase,” plus fictionalized depictions of real-world events like “Mindhunter” and “Manhunt: Unabomber.”And we go over some recent streaming headlines, including Hulu’s rumored revival of “Veronica Mars” and Netflix picking up the U.S. rights to “The Great British Baking Show”.You can listen in the player below, subscribe using Apple Podcasts or find us in your podcast player of choice.
Well, that's what you tell Little Tommy anyway, while cuddling up to his sister Emily.Okay, the link is a touch tenuous but we are sticking with it.Before you shout that your number one show isn't even on the list, then just remember that below are shows in the World Cup finals, there was many a qualification game to get here and series such as Making a Murderer and Gypsy made a short, sharp exit.Instead it managed a respectable second in its group.It was eery to watch how well Mindhunter got into the minds and under the skin of its opposition in this group.Santa Clarita Diet took a different approach, deciding to go for the jugular more times than we'd care to mention.
Netflix has begun to cancel shows, but that doesn't mean it's getting rid of your favorites.Nearly 40 Netflix original series will be returning with new seasons in the near future.Only a handful of the series have official release dates, including the upcoming premieres of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Marvel's Luke Cage."But other hit Netflix shows like "Stranger Things" and "Mindhunter" have been renewed by the streaming service and are either currently in production or awaiting release.For this list, we have only included renewed Netflix series that are yet to air, and we've included official release dates if applicable.We've excluded children's shows and reality series.
After starting the year out with a cultural conversation-starter in "13 Reasons Why," the streaming service followed with a string of critically acclaimed new shows, including the serial-killer procedural "Mindhunter" and women's wrestling comedy "GLOW."To find out which new Netflix original shows released this year are worth your time, we turned to the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to rank the shows by their composite critical reception.We excluded any show that did not have enough reviews to receive a designation of "Fresh" or "Rotten."We also did not include docu-series, children's shows, or talk shows, and we used audience scores to break any ties.Here are the 26 notable Netflix original shows that debuted in 2017, ranked from worst to best, according to critics:"Marvel's Iron Fist" — 17%
Douglas’s approach to criminal psychology continues to determine the views of the government and the media.He was also an immediate inspiration for “The Silence of the Lambs” and an indirect influence on screen storytellers who were busy reformatting true crime for a new century.His insights have been essential both to the work of many field agents and to the steady employment of many TV actors.This, the lone note of kinetic gore in the season, is done as an expressionistic mess, with the spew of flesh playing like the paste of brains in an old zombie film.Holden returns, despairingly, to his antiseptic bachelor’s apartment, where he tries and fails to clean a shirt cuff that was discolored by blood in the blast.Academy, in Quantico, Virginia, Holden happens upon an older lecturer who charismatically spins questions about the problem of understanding a criminal like David Berkowitz, the “Son of Sam” killer, whose style of madness stymies old methods of behavioral science.
Update (11/7/17): If you own a Sony Bravia 4K HDR TV from the last couple of years, you’re probably getting access to Google Assistant today.Sony announced that all 2017 4K HD TVs and 2016 models XBR-Z9D, XBR-X800D, and XBR-X750/X700D would all be getting an update starting today.With Assistant, you’ll be able to search for content in apps like Netflix or YouTube.With a push of the microphone button on your remote, you can tell Assistant to pull up Mindhunter on Netflix.Additionally, you can perform all of the same actions with Assistant like you’d expect.You might already have the update available, but if not, it should show up soon.
Metacritic score: Season 1: 75Mockumentaries are my absolute favorite.And while I think we collectively burned out a touch after primetime sitcoms decided to commandeer the genre, it was about time the mocuseries got back to its roots as truly delightful satire.Which is probably why I found both seasons of "Love" so completely enjoyable."Mindhunter" centers around two FBI agents in 1977 interviewing serial killers.Ansari clearly has a lot to say about life, love and finding yourself in the 21st century.
