Watchmen – “See How They Fly” (A-) / season finale
An incredibly satisfying finale that of course can’t answer every possible question we have. Damon Lindelof stuck the landing on one of the best seasons of television ever. I want more, but this would also be the greatest flex in history to end it here. “I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.”
Mindhunter – Season 1 (A- average)
Its Fincher-directed episodes are shockingly its weakest, but they establish the formal rigor and intensity for telling such a dark story but with characters we care about. Its relative unknowns playing the “sequence killers” (they don’t arrive at the term serial killers until Season 2) are uniformly brilliant, especially Cameron Britton as Ed Kemper, the Co-Ed Killer.
