I'm putting this under "movies" as well as TV because each episode of KILLING EVE is like its own mini-movie.
In case you missed it: the breakout show of 2018 was KILLING EVE on BBC America. With a 96% rating from critics on RottenTomatoes, Season 1 of this extraordinary program generated huge amounts of buzz when it debuted in April 2018. Exciting, thrilling, and dark, the show captivated critics and audiences.
Since its premiere, the show's won a LOT of awards, including the Golden Globe for Best Actress – Television Series Drama for Sandra Oh, Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for Sandra Oh, Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series for Sandra Oh, and Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Series Long Form for Phoebe Waller-Bridge, among others.
So what makes this show so incredibly addicting that we're already in season 2, with season 3 just being greenlit?
(Sorry to the UK fans of the show)
The premise, via Wikipedia; Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), a desk-bound MI5 officer, begins to track down talented psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer), while both women become obsessed with each other.
If this was a movie, it would be rated R for violence, language, and other similar situations, so be forwarned.
While unusual, the show could easily fall flat without the incredible talents of the team that put it together. From the incendiary and compelling soundtrack...
To the incredible fashion and the role it plays in the show...
To the stellar performances and meaty roles being created for the cast...
KILLING EVE just works. Here's how you can watch the show thus far: we're already 3 episodes into season 2 so I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but if people were concerned about a "Sophomore slump" or where could this show go after the action went so haywire in season 1, they needn't be worried that there would be any shortage of inspiration.
Anyone else watching and enjoying?
