You can now watch 'Mindhunter', the new critically-acclaimed crime drama from Netflix.

Directed by David Fincher, it's adapted from a book called 'Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Secret Crime Unit'. It focuses on the development of criminal profiling in the 1970s, including interviews with serial killer Charles Manson.

Criminal profiling is the process of narrowing down a list of potential suspects for a crime. It involves creating a profile of the likely offender, taking into account the nature of the crime, how it was committed, and possible motives.

The series stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench, respectively.

It's won rave reviews.

The Radio Times said "'Mindhunter' flourishes into a captivating and visually striking drama that looks likely to become increasingly intriguing as the series wears on." However, it noted that due to the almost unrelenting darkness of the series, binge-watching isn't advised.

The Telegraph proclaimed it "the most accomplished drama on TV right now", while the Guardian described its pace as "more of a satisfying 'Mad Men' slow-burn than anything else".

If that sounds like your cup of tea, check it out now on Netflix.
