I'm two episodes into this season. Lots more attention on BTK so far and this season picks up right after season 1. The quality of the film making remains top notch and the subject matter scares the hell out of me. Every element that made season 1 enjoyable is present in season 2, but the detail of BTK, previously unknown to me, makes these first two episodes particularly chilling.

Excellent season so far. I really enjoyed the interview sequence with Manson and I like that it's dealing with the Atlanta child murders as that's a case I don't know a lot about beyond hearing some things about it when I was a kid.

There was a really good podcast series recently about the Atlanta child murders.  Based on that, this season did an amazing job in dramatizing the events while also showing all sides of that case.

Binged it over the weekend.

Berkowitz and Manson (same actor that played him in ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD) were top notch, but Kemper in his small participation demonstrated again he's the real "star" of the show.

Didn't know much about the Atlanta case, fascinating stuff. 

I'm guessing season 3 will be all about BTK, but besides that I wonder where the show will go after that.

Serial killers as a "phenomenon" started in the late 60's and "peaked" at '89. After that, steady decline (fortunately!). I always wondered why, what was about that time and place. I hope the show has some answers.

I grew up north of Atlanta and remember those murders, but had no idea there were challenges getting attention from law enforcement outside of the city. I don't think that case will be wrapped up by the end of season 2 unless they have some huge leaps forward in the show's timeline. I just finished episode 5.

I remember reading after season 1 was released that Fincher saw the show as five seasons long. However, Netflix has yet to green light season 3.

There are lots of places to go in future seasons.  For example, interviews with Gacy.

I just finished episode 8 and they did a great job condensing time without it seeming out of place. The Atlanta Child cases spanned two years so the events in season 2 are about a year long. The biggest "shock" to me was the scene with Holden at the Gold Mine arcade. I can't remember if I was ever at the Gold Mine at the Omni, but I was in the one at Cumberland Mall all the time as a kid. Kudos to Carl Franklin and Andrew Dominik picking up directorial duties from Fincher. It was seamless. Looking forward to the finale and hope we don't wait two years for season 3.

stuff!

Two episodes completed so far and I expect to tear through the rest of them shortly. Terrific stuff that is just as intriguing as the first season.

And I have to admit that I am still crushing on Anna Torv... I hadn't seen her in any previous series so this show has been my introduction to her. Yowza :-)
