Critic Reviews for Killing Eve: Season 1

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (25)

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.

It's a surprisingly fresh, taut and entertaining take on a thoroughly durable genre.

June 15, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

April 11, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.
