Executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge subverts every male-centered trope of espionage thrillers as Eve and the assassin play a deadly cat-and-mouse game fueled by their mutual fascination with each other.

With style and verve, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has adapted Luke Jennings' Codename Villanelle novellas about the co-dependent joust between a spook and an assassin.

Fiona Shaw is excellent as the gimlet-eyed head of MI6's Russia division.

[Jodie Comer] plays Villanelle, a gorgeous, magnetic, sociopathic serial killer, all gleeful brutality and spite, in Killing Eve, 2018's best TV show... It's a piercing jolt of a performance that hits you like a hairpin to the eyeball.

Killing Eve is completely delightful, and I think now that Waller-Bridge really might, after all, be the best thing to happen to women and TV since Sarah Jane Smith snuck aboard the Tardis in 1973.

The story hurtles along at a fast pace, shedding characters along the way. You'll think, oh man, they can't do that. And then they do. And the show just gets better.

Watching the slow-motion collision of these two women, trapped in male-dominated professions that continuously underestimate their abilities and their passions for their work is one of the most fun and feminized cat-and-mouse games of the last few years.

The characters are unsympathetic and detached from reality. Most of all, it lacks heart.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Killing Eve is not only one of the most wildly unpredictable shows around right now, it's also a much-needed dive into the stories of women in espionage.
