Mindhunter isn’t a particularly funny show, but the debut of its second season on Friday meant that a lot of fans binged it over the weekend and had feelings about it immediately. We had to wait two years for its return, after all. But the reactions definitely found the humor (and sadness) in the show’s season 2 narratives, as well as the way we devour the true-crime series.
After watching nine episodes in as many hours, this mashup of Rami Malek’s bizarre hotel ad with clips from the show offered some levity.
Applying the recent viral kombucha reaction meme to the more ethically concerning parts of Mindhunter is also good practice.
People also dunked on Agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) thinking he’s being hit on by a hotel employee in episode 3, only to be asked to investigate the Atlanta Child Murders.
And of course, there are jokes about Ford’s myopic theories regarding that investigation, though some viewers feel very protective of sweet baby Holden.

Agent Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) is pulling double duty this season, keeping an eye on his real son, Brian, and his work son, Holden.
And Carrie Coon is here to remind us she is Carrie Coon, and not Anna Torv (who plays Dr. Wendy Carr).
There are jokes about how a lot of us watch Mindhunter, with one eye on the screen and one on Wikipedia.
Who else binged the series in 24 to 48 hours then was left with that sinking feeling?

These are all good, but nothing has topped Paul F. Tompkins’ “rejected” Mindhunter theme song from 2017.
Finally got the go-ahead to post my rejected theme song for “Mindhunter.” IT’S THEIR LOSS. pic.twitter.com/ao9pNbeYYF— Paul F. Tompkins (@PFTompkins) October 25, 2017
