Tv Season Info

Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn't fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

Killing Eve is subversive at its most basic level, taking the classic good-guy-chases-villain template and placing two women in the primary roles.

Killing Eve is a funny, witty, bright show about a hilarious, soulless maniac who waxes people to pop music. It feels like an upper, but somehow, it didn't trigger my conscience.

Killing Eve is a helluva good time, it's already more interesting than many of its genre peers, and the first season illustrates a self-awareness essential for its survival. The show may follow a formula, but there's nothing routine about it.

[Sandra] Oh brings the same blend of determination and exasperation that made her Dr. Christina Yang the heart and soul of "Grey's." Waller-Bridge's killer dialogue serves Oh and her opponent, Jodie Comer, well.

Killing Eve has whip-smart performances from its two leads, and evocative location footage from Berlin, Paris, London and elsewhere, and way too many surprises to describe - or to miss.
