Shows Like Black Mirror
Based on the true crime book of the same name, written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker, Mindhunter is a series that shows how to catch criminals by thinking like them and kicks off our list of shows like Black Mirror.
FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench study the damaged psyches of the deranged, creating the development of modern serial-killer profiling as we know it today.
Mindhunter is filled with suspense and intrigue. Its dark themes and tales of human atrocities overlap with a vast majority of the episodes that make up Black Mirror.
The show manages to simultaneously revolt and intrigue the audience, making it hard to watch but harder to put down. If you love Charlie Brooker’s direction and storytelling, there is no doubt the themes and stories of Mindhunter will also be appealing to you.
