Killing Eve is based on Luke Jennings “Villanelle” book series. I felt really remorseful for missing this series till now, thought of cave in a pilot episode which tops in finishing the season in a single day. Wonderful series which embraced me inside and out.

 

Killing Eve starts with London and travels to many locations. Villanelle is a young, a beautiful, sweet, and psychopathic killer who undertakes tough tasks to accomplish high-value goals, taking orders from her handler who also a mentor, a Russian, a member of a mysterious organization also known as The Twelve. Eve Polastri, an MI6 administrator who loves to do spy work, but landed into a desk job. Because of her intelligence and clear-sightedness, she gained the trust of Carolyn Martens, Russia's MI5 director, who suggests joining her team to expose the Twelve.

 

Eve is completely devoted to the research of finding Villanelle and the Twelve organization, actually obsessed towards Villanelle by sacrificing her marriage, for the very first time, she feels that her value is recognized. Villanelle, on the other hand, Killing with Spree and observes Eve’s movements, gets impressed with Eve’s passion for finding her and got obsessed with Eve. Both of their obsession leads to a deadly hilarious cat and mouse game. Killing Eve has a great post-Cold War atmosphere, which is made even more intense by the hazy faded visual field.

 

One of the best head on head scene from Season 1 of Killing Eve

 

Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri and Jodie Comer as Villanelle is amazing as two women who are completely dedicated to their goal, very smart, but who have sacrificed everything in their lives obeying the orders of superiors, which is not always for the best. The two heroines are the two sides of the same coin and their opposite as well. Their Face to Face moments is literally enjoyable.

 

One of the highlights of Killing Eve is the criticism, humor that pieces into every line of dialogue, into every awkward look, even into action scenes, and blends in perfectly with the basic spy drama, creating an explosively enjoyable result. Another is the duration which of 40-minute episodes, the series has a great capability not to have time to lose, and it is not in a hurry, the flow is continuous with the plot. The thing which felt really bad is the unraveling of the organization was not done in S01, which I am expecting to happen in S02.

 

Climax of Season 1

 

Overall, Killing Eve is one of the best series of its own kind, If you want to watch crime, with cat and mouse humor, do watch it. It won’t step down you.
