May 24, 2018
Ms. Comer is good in the showier part of Villanelle, but it's Ms. Oh who makes sure that the series is more than a cute gloss on the glamorous international caper.
May 24, 2018
Killing Eve is relentlessly engaging and surprising where it's least expected, making for the next must-see show of 2018.
May 23, 2018
Jumps back and forth between Eve's quotidian bureaucrat's job and Villanelle's jet-setting murder-fun lifestyle... Both sides are a blast to watch.
May 14, 2018
It's a TV show that undermines every rule of TV, Prestige/Peak or otherwise - sauntering when we expect it to gallop and snickering when we expect it to posture.
May 9, 2018
Killing Eve has less than zero interest in playing at "prestige." It would rather be its own weird, sexy, sad, scary, excellent self.
May 3, 2018
Killing Eve is hilarious and truthful, even as it moves within a tried-and-true TV formula.
April 30, 2018
The triumph of Waller-Bridge's style is in its reconciliation of the outlandish and the intimate. The Jason Bourne-style escapism of the bare premise, inflected by the assertively odd tone, yields fresh depictions of fear and grief.
April 25, 2018
Despite the stylized, heightened nature of the show, it still feels terribly real.
April 25, 2018
I'm not sure I've ever seen that messy tangle of friendly, almost pheromonal antagonism portrayed with this much complexity.
April 23, 2018
Best new show of 2018: tense, fast, often funny.
April 11, 2018
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 10, 2018
Fresh spy thriller is offbeat, entertaining, and violent.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 10, 2018
Comer and Oh make us believe in their mutual obsession, delighting in the sparks they create at a distance and holding our breath in anticipation of the inevitable conflagration that would result from a meeting of these opposing forces.
April 10, 2018
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.
April 10, 2018
Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer are both outstanding in this gleefully fun and wonderfully smart series that puts women in roles too often reserved just for men.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
April 9, 2018
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.

April 9, 2018
It blends dark comedy with sometimes darker drama and still comes away with something that's astonishingly fast-paced and fun to watch.
April 9, 2018
What might have been another dreary detective chasing serial killer series is turned on its head when women portray both roles, exploring the kinds of things that aren't often considered in such dramas.
April 9, 2018
If you feel like you can't possibly fit another new TV series into your life, just quit watching your favorite show and make Killing Eve a higher priority.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 9, 2018
Watching [Jodi] Comer's Villanelle operate feels like watching a lion pace far enough away that the danger of her ripping you apart isn't exactly immediate, but the threat of that changing is definitely imminent.
