Just finished watching Breaking Bad for the third time - still sets the benchmark for brilliant TV.

I think there has been a big swing where she is concerned, under the old head she was seen as the lead and everything they did had to either be signed off by her or implemented by her (type of questions etc.) Now under the new head she seems to be having her influence and importance eroded whether that is due to the fallout of the Holden Incident we'll find out. It's like she is either blamed or not trusted for not being FBI by the new head. I get where you're coming from with the arrogance but she was pretty much like that in the first season. I think the whole concern thing with Holden was more that she was concerned he'd f*** it up again and the FBI would shut it down rather than concern for him.

Just finished season 2, agree that it's not as good as the first one, think this one lost the balance of the first, I like them solving crimes but think this second season focused too much on solving the Atlanta murders and put the interviews on a back seat, maybe would have been more interesting to introduce Wayne Williams a bit earlier and have more scenes with him to cover the lack of inteviews as the interactions with the killers is really what makes this show great
SpoilerShow
I'd also like to see more interviews or longer scenes covering the interviews. I can see why the Atlanta child murders was covered the way it was as it is a very bizarre/controversial case to say the least. From what i've read the real FBI agent (Holden character) was suspended/reprimanded over this case for coming out and stating to the press that Williams was the killer of the children even though he was only charged with the murders of 2 adults and the remaining 22 child murders cases closed ( they have reopened the cases) on the order of Commissioner Lee Brown and Mayor Jackson.The show pointed out that the commissioner and mayor really wanted the cases to just disappear as it affected their plans for attracting investment to Atlanta. Very political and add in the fact that half the victims families believe Williams is a scapegoat and the KKK killed the children ( which was sort of skipped over by the show) then it becomes even more f***ed up. If anything the show has got everyone talking about it and like i said they have reopened the cases of the 22 kids killed whether that's down to the show who knows but it seems likely. So even though it's not as good as the first one for me it is definitely more thought provoking that's for sure.

Watched the first episode of Mindhunter Season 2 last night...my biggest issue is that because there was a break between series I can't remember the politics of what happened at the end of series 1...
SpoilerShow
Such as why was there tension between the three main characters, how did he end up in the Mental Hospital, and why does the FBI Director guy hate him so much...

The tension is because of the internal investigation due to the interview with Richard Speck and the deleting of part of the interview which Gregg Smith tells the internal affairs guys about (this could be a spoiler <erk> ) as he admits it in season 2 also Holden is a bit of a loose cannon wanting to push ahead with his theories that the others see as getting them in this mess in the first place. Holden ended up in hospital after visiting Ed Kemper in hospital and having a massive panic attack again it only comes out about his anxiety and panic attacks in this season. The FBI director reveals what happened and why he hates him at his leaving party.
There is also a catch up trailer of season one on Netflix <ok>

Not Netflix but so glad someone has made this and set it faithfully to the H.G. Wells novel and not some s*** American version starring shitty f*** face Cruise or a crap 1950's B movie type film.

Yeah it was fine, nothing to write home about but watchable.

Was good seeing Skinny P and Badger helping out Jesse as he battled some demons and got away. The biggest thing that struck me was how much weight Todd had put on, clearly enjoying life <laugh>

Yeah i was like come on you could of at least try to get into shape, i was drunk when i first watched it and posted about it (hence the 3.20am post <erk> ) so watched it again. Although not a classic like the series but then again i didn't expect it to be as the series built over a season and a 2 hr movie really couldn't do that, i was happy with a lot of it though.
