I’m Killing Eve

Okay people, why did no one tell me sooner about the Sandra Oh-helmed series, KILLING EVE, before now? Late to the viewing game, as the show is now on season 3—something I am soooo happy to read about—me and mine only discovered the show this weekend when we found the DVD for season 1 in the Recently Released section.

I mean, I’ve heard about Sandra Oh knocking it out of the ballpark with her performance, because didn’t she win an Emmy or something? But we’ve never gotten around to looking for it. We don’t have cable, and have never bothered subbing to Netflix or the like. We’re readers usually. But this weekend has seen me binge-watch all 8 episodes of season 1 and now, I’m itching to get my sweaty palms on season 2, like, yesterday!

“Eve’s life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped it would be when she started. She is a bored, very smart, MI5 security officer who is very desk-bound. Villanelle is a very talented killer, mercurial in mood, who clings to the luxuries of her job. Eve and Villanelle go head to head in a fierce game of cat and mouse, each woman equally obsessed with the other as Eve is tasked with hunting down the psychopathic assassin.”

Brilliant, dark, twisted and oh-so compelling, I’m even drawn to the psycho assassin, Villanelle, who is superbly played by Jodi Comer, an actress I’ve never heard of before. It was also fun to see the straight-faced Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter’s aunt) getting in on the action, along with an excellent supporting cast.

Now, though, I’ll just have to be patient and wait for season 2 and, of course, season 3 to arrive. And you, have you been watching Killing Eve?

  1. Oooh, good to see you find something you guys both enjoy 🙂
    I’ve been looking for a series i can watch with the BF. I think he’d like this one. But i want to read the book first, so keep postponing it :/

    We are watching Bosch now on Amazon, which is pretty good. It has too many books in the series for me to start now, so i was kind of OK with it 😀

      Oh, I know what you mean. There are some each of us like, but not the other. So finding one we can both agree on is unusual. And this one is turning out to be a hidden gem. Yeah, I’ve ordered book one to have a read and don’t mind reading it after the series, as I’m sure it will be just as good.

      We tried Bosch, but then, we gave up cable and that was that. I never bothered getting the DVDs. Just too many shows and not enough dosh. 😉

      Oh, Jonetta, wait no more, get stuck in woman, and enjoy this dark, twisted, and yes, very droll drama. It really is all it’s hyped to be, and then some. The acting is great, as are the scripts!
