July 1, 2018
With only four episodes aired and pulling intelligence, humor, tension and rhythm, 'Killing Eve' already claims a spot amongst the best series of the year. Yes, it's only May and we're already like this. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 10, 2018
It is a world where men exists, but their agency and motivations matter little. It's a world where women are not only the danger, but foil, sometimes to each other.
June 5, 2018
If the dark humor wasn't enough, the intense focus on the psyches of two very different women certainly upped the ante by adding a worthy twist to a fairly well-trod bit of genre ground.
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.
April 25, 2018
Despite the stylized, heightened nature of the show, it still feels terribly real.
May 3, 2018
Killing Eve is hilarious and truthful, even as it moves within a tried-and-true TV formula.
April 6, 2018
The tension of Killing Eve's globetrotting machinations is only rivaled by watching our heroine and antiheroine becoming increasingly fixated on each other.
April 6, 2018
Killing Eve is unlike any other spy drama you've seen and that's why it's so excellent. It does away with the conventions of the genre
April 4, 2018
The series combines a dry comedy's affection for the mundane with the slick look and tone of a psychosexual thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 15, 2018
It's a surprisingly fresh, taut and entertaining take on a thoroughly durable genre.
April 9, 2018
But dammit, it is fun - an addictive and surprisingly witty thriller powered by two remarkable female performances, and a welcome counterbalance to dour, moody British crime dramas like Luther and The Fall.

June 28, 2018
This shape-shifting show is at once cerebral, seductive and seriously funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 5, 2018
Slickly made and mightily entertaining, Killing Eve brings a new energy to the well-worn game of cat-and-mouse staged by many a murder mystery.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 30, 2018
On top of the two masterful performances from the leads, the credit belongs to Killing Eve's creator and writer, Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
April 5, 2018
Killing Eve makes a specific insight that's less about female depravity than why other women are drawn to it. It's my favorite series of the year so far, not least because it makes me feel more than a little called out.
April 9, 2018
The show is both following a few pop culture tropes and also overturning them.
Full Review | Original Score: A
May 29, 2018
The show is as suspenseful as it is playfully funny and straight up weird.
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 30, 2018
The show assays two very different types of female power, and does so with both edge and heart.
April 6, 2018
Eve gives [Sandra Oh], often relegated to supporting roles, the opportunity to shine as a lead, and the mix of intelligence and mania she gives Eve is magnetic.
