Kyle’s Choice

Last week, I finally got around to checking out the new BBC America series Killing Eve, and I was instantly hooked. Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy) works as a security services operative for MI-5, helping to profile serial killers. She generally lives a boring but happy life with her husband but has always been intrigued by the more exciting life of a spy. Eve discovers that there is a mysterious new killer at large, Villanelle (Jodie Comer, Doctor Foster, The White Princess). She is deeply drawn into the case and soon finds herself participating in a deadly game of cat and mouse. However, Villanelle seems to always be one step ahead and has also developed a bit of an obsession with Eve.

This series will make you laugh out loud one moment and have you sitting on the edge of your seat in suspense the next. It has a lot of humor, but it is also a genuine thriller/spy show with surprising twists, murders, and a mysterious mole inside the bureau. Villanelle is such a fun and entertaining character, and the relationship between her and her handler is hilarious. However, she is also very deadly and in the first few episodes proves that she is a ruthless killer who shows no emotion while brutally murdering her victims. Eve is similarly complex. While she jokes a lot in the early episodes, things take a dark turn, and things become a lot more serious and dramatic.

I can’t recommend this show highly enough. It’s definitely one worth catching up on if you haven’t yet checked it out (all of the previously-aired episodes should be bingeable via On Demand). This show just keeps getting better and better each week, and tonight’s episode is no different – there are some unexpected turns that will have you holding your breath!

On tonight’s episode, “I Have a Thing About Bathrooms,” having survived a terrifying close call with Villanelle, Eve now has the mole ensconced in a safe house and is buzzing; they have an exciting opportunity to glean information and crack this thing open.

To see what opportunity they get, tune in to BBC America at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Deception, Timeless, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Fear the Walking Dead, Worst Cooks in America, Trust, Westworld, Silicon Valley, Barry, Sweetbitter, and Vida.
