Thinking of some scenes from S1 and I'm convinced your life is not mundane.

How much do I actually need to remember from S1 to watch S2? I read a recap from EW or some other outlet that went back and hit the major plot points, but even now I'm still a little confused about who all the characters were and how they interplay.

i'm on about episode 5 of the 2nd season. really enjoying all the interrelationships between the various past and future versions of everybody. that explainer whiskey posted is very helpful but it's probably a bit spoilery if you haven't watched season 2 yet.

Behind the Curve, about flat earthers. You don’t need to stick around for the last half hour or so, imo. It’s good for a laugh or two.

Two episodes into S2 of Mindhunters. Hot damn I love this show*.


* minus the terrible sound. Lots of conversations are almost inaudible when the setting is a bar or somewhere loud.... you would think they would even that out in post-production.

Same. Just finished season 2. Can't wait for season 3.
