Maybe Killing Eve is different because it's funnier. Maybe it's because it's made by women-or because murderous rage seems, right now, like a relevant basis for female bonding.
April 9, 2019
If Eve is our frayed tether to reality, Villanelle embodies the entitled, otherworldly glamour of both being in her line of work and taking pride in it.
April 8, 2019
New spin for a new season, but the black heart of "Killing Eve" remains intact.

April 5, 2019
Killing Eve" deftly continues the cat-and-mouse game that made this BBC America series one of 2018's most pleasant surprises -- an espionage caper loaded with dry wit, dark comedy and two splendid central performances.
April 5, 2019
The new episodes reverberate with a sense of humor that's absurd, bleak, and distinctly British.
April 5, 2019
When Comer purposely flexes even the tiniest muscle during Killing Eve, you sit up straighter in your seat.
May 16, 2019
If anything, this season is a little more off-kilter, especially as Eve dives deeper into the world of spies. The visit to the morgue, in particular, encapsulates the show's delightful inner wackiness.
April 21, 2019
The show knows when to lighten the serious life-and-death stuff with a wicked joke or gag, and it knows when to speed up the electrifying action. And just when we'll been lulled into something resembling comfort, bam!

[Jodie Comer] has become the main reason for staying with Killing Eve, which otherwise has shown signs of becoming too knowing and too far-fetched for its own good.
April 15, 2019
Luckily, "Killing Eve" continues to deliver on its initial promise with sharp characters and even sharper wit.

Part of me isn't convinced. The other part is stronger, but makes no sense.
April 9, 2019
"Killing Eve" is full of that sort of wicked humor the British excel in.
April 8, 2019
It seems like as long as the show continues to mine comic material from the feminine side of the spy world, "Killing Eve" will succeed no matter which woman is behind the wheel.
April 8, 2019
If nothing else, then, watching as the series manages and teases out this anticipation and uncertainty is reason enough to get obsessed with Killing Eve all over again.
April 8, 2019
Killing Eve returns in good form. [Full Review in Spanish]

April 6, 2019
Comer's Villanelle is funny, physical, and graceful. She demonstrates desperation and vulnerability so tangible to the audience that we find ourselves rooting for the otherwise abhorrent killer.

April 6, 2019
These opening episodes prove that the show's strengths remain intact, and there's good reason to be hopeful about what's to come.
April 5, 2019
Funny and whipsmart, "Killing Eve" Season two is as delightful as ever; a black-tinged spy thriller with an arch sense of humor.

April 5, 2019
[Season 2,] from the get-go... doesn't let up.
April 5, 2019
Oh's a devastating performer when she gets good material to work with, and Killing Eve Season 2 offers her a lot.
April 4, 2019
The series benefitted last time around by seldom having the two stars in the same episode, and new writer Emerald Fennell maintains that format.

It's not the deception that's intriguing; it's the honesty.
April 2, 2019
Beyond funny, the series continues to be clever, with plenty of intriguing tricks up its sleeve, the retention of some good characters and we shall see how the newbies develop (two episodes isn't enough for that when they barely get screen time).
March 25, 2019
"Killing Eve" remains very much grounded in its original identity. This is a show about two women lovingly entwined by their own complicated obsessions, fighting for what they want in a world that doesn't understand them.
