Really good show.

I especially loved the honesty about it - while FBI is shown to have rigid attitudes, they don't pull any punches when it comes to the academia.

Essentially the series starts with an FBI agent contemplating a serial killer in the "70's, before the term serial killer even existed and when no one had even thought about profiling.

The FBI agent then notices that "we don't know why they do what they do".



Relevant, why does the media only talk about white serial killers?

Because young white women, their most likely victims, are the murders receiving most reporting bias. Makes sense; cause & effect of news media bias.

What's more, it also demonstrates which lives society values most. Females most, of course. More specifically young healthy ones in prime child bearing age. White women, here, because they're the standard model of feminine attractiveness; the standard model by which beauty standards are most often judged by in this country.


I've heard people joke about only white dudes being serial killers before. I know it isn't true, but lots of people think there is some kind of truth to that. News reporting bias spreading misconceptions per usual.
