Happened to finish it yesterday. Overall quite better than season 1 (which I just merely liked) because the flow/writing of the interviews and main Atlanta case is smoother and more engaging, but man the Bill's son and Wendy's love interest subplots do nothing for me. Bill's son just feels like something out of grimdark/overly writerly crime series instead of feeling authentic like the rest of BSU's interviews/investigations, and so annoyingly on the nose with Holt's work life by how we're hammered with the connections very often too. At least it gives Holt McCallany a real meaty showcase throughout. Wendy's subplot is better than both Bill's son and Holden's love interest last season, but still just feels like it's there so Anna Torv will not disappear completely in the second half.

Yeah. I certainly enjoyed the season, but in a way, I think it falters a bit when it focuses on the Atlanta murders. The psychology is basically repeated for the last three episodes. The political approach is something we've seen from The Wire already. The son and girlfriend subplots seem forced to add time, and definitely distract from the story that we care about.

BUT... the first five episodes are as good as the show's ever put out, with the peak occurring with the Charles Manson interview. Great stuff.

Larry Gene Bell's manhunt would probably take up most of season 3, taking place a few years after Wayne Williams. The damn ADT Killer would still be on the loose.

I could see them trying someone like Richard Ramírez as well.

This is undoubtedly true, and I also wasn't a fan of Holden's romantic subplot of the previous seasons. But I did like all of the Bill's son stuff - while obvious, it feels integral to the show and triggers that awesome Manson scene.

Other than those small gripes, though, the show is a masterpiece. That editing video was interesting because, while watching this new season, I remember thinking I wished the acting style was a bit more varied - a lot of the times I feel like the actors are instructed to deliver all of their dialogue with the same cadence. Yet this is clearly deliberate because the whole show is exquisitely rigorous with its style of editing and cinematography.

It's a great show, wasn't it on hold now because Fincher wanted to do other stuff?

Makes sense. I'm not sure how much material is left either.
