People ‘cheated’ on their partners with these Netflix shows

Netflix is notoriously tight-lipped about its viewership numbers, but the streaming giant has recently released some juicy information about the way people watch its shows. In its roundup of 2017’s most-binged shows, it included the top 10 shows that inspired people to “cheat” and watch ahead of their partners. So if you were watching “Narcos” with your significant other and suspected he or she of jumping ahead on the nights you worked late, you have something else to argue about during the holidays! Crime shows, in fact, led the top 10 in cheating. Here they are:

1. “Narcos”

The drama, now three seasons and counting, chronicles the Colombian drug trade and the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar. It’s filled with pulse-pounding confrontations between cartels and the DEA, so it’s no surprise viewers can’t wait to jump to the next chapter without their partners.

2. “13 Reasons Why”

Mindhunter Season 2 Officially Ordered By Netflix

Netlix has officially renewed its critically acclaimed series Mindhunter for a second season. Based on real-life FBI Agent John Douglas, the hour-long crime thriller Mindhunter has delved into the famed criminal profiler’s experiences like no other series or film has done before.

A criminal psychologist who concentrated on getting into the minds of serial killers in an effort to understand what was behind their murderous ways, Douglas was first used as the inspiration for the FBI Agent Jack Crawford character in Thomas Harris’ best-selling novels Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs. As a result, Crawford became a key character in all of the adaptations of Harris’ novels, from the film Manhunter (played by Dennis Farina), The Silence of The Lambs (Scott Glenn), and Red Dragon (Harvey Keitel) to the TV series Hannibal (Laurence Fishburne). Now, Douglas’ work is being spotlighted once again, this time in the guise of FBI Agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) in

Interview: Mindhunter’s Holt McCallany on Boxing, Netflix, and Why …

It’s getting a bit tougher for Holt McCallany to walk down the street these days.

While the New York City-born actor has three decades of steady work in television and film under his belt, including memorable roles in Fight Club, Three Kings, and on the FX boxing series Lights Out, he’s getting the most recognition of his career—from critics and fans—for his work in Netflix’s new drama series Mindhunter.

“The response to the show has been tremendous,” McCallany tells Men’s Fitness. “The reviews have been strong and the response from fans has been fantastic. I’m getting thousands of Twitter messages per day from people all over the world.

7 behind-the-scenes secrets from ‘Mindhunter,’ Netflix’s newest hit series

Mindhunter takes its inspiration from real-life events and people of the era, primarily drawing from the book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker. The character of Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) is based on Douglas, the former FBI special agent and unit chief who pioneered the field of criminal profiling. McCallany said that Douglas was a constant help to the actors on the series.

“Douglas, who has become a friend of mine, was a great resource for us,” McCallany said. “He’s always very generous with his wisdom, and I send him emails and I call him and ask him questions. I went to visit him at his house in Virginia; he’s an extremely knowledgeable guy and has been very supportive of us and of the show. Even recently, after the shooting in Las Vegas, when Stephen Paddock killed 58 people, the first call

‘Mindhunter’ is the perfect Netflix horror story

Early in the first season of “Mindhunter,” Netflix’s new show from David Fincher about criminal profiling and the invention of the serial killer, FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) finds himself trying to understand why crime doesn’t seem to make sense anymore. Beset by spree killers, men who commit grotesque acts of violence against women, and crimes that seem to lack any social or economic motivation at all, Ford is convinced that the meaninglessness of these crimes reflects something about a society that seems to have lost its moral center.

But over the course of the series, Ford and his partner, Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), come to understand something they didn’t initially see. All of these crimes have an obvious root cause: The men who committed them hate women. That Ford and Tench and their FBI colleagues had a difficult time recognizing just how widespread misogyny is ultimately a disturbing reflection

Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’ : Our Full Report, with Video of Each of the REAL Killers Portrayed

It takes a very specific type of person to study pure evil clinically — that is, doing what one can to put aside one’s preconceived notions and judgments to truly understand the mechanics of evil: what is its genesis? What is its function? How does it work? Most importantly, how can we stop it?

How does one even begin to study this problem with even a pretense of objectivity? The FBI attempted their answer starting in the 1970’s with what was more or less the American boom in serial murder — this was but years after the Manson murders rocked the world; only about a decade after Psycho’s twisted vision hit the big-screen; only about 15 years after Psycho’s inspiration, “The Butcher of PlainfieldEd Gein was caught and placed into intensive criminal psychiatric care in Wisconsin; The Zodiac Killer was still

Netflix show depicts local murder

In early June 1979, Logan Township patrol officers Steven D. Jackson and Walter Coho were dispatched to Skyline Drive at the top of Wopsononock Mountain because a jogger thought he saw a body.

The officers met the man at the Buckhorn Inn, and he directed them to a makeshift dump where people would throw their trash and yard waste.

Jackson, then 29, remembers viewing the scene and in his initial shock exclaiming, “Are we really seeing what we are seeing?”

The officers had discovered a badly mutilated 22-year-old woman named Betty Jean Shade.

“The thing I thought when I saw her: If she was a sister or a member of your family, you wouldn’t recognize her,” said Jackson, who eventually served as Logan Township police chief and is now a magisterial district judge in Blair County.

Shade’s murder and her killer, who turned out to be her boyfriend, Charles F. Soult, 26, of Altoona, is
