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.
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.
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.
What makes Killing Eve so compelling is the same thing that makes it an unmistakable Phoebe Waller-Bridge production; both women are deviant, brilliant troublemakers, both women are terribly uninterested in pedestrian life.
