Killing Eve: Season 2 Reviews

Season two has been ragged, inconsistent and not nearly as much fun as the first. Even Villanelle's increasingly over-the-top murders have become repetitive and seem randomly dropped in to remind us she's a cold-blooded psycho.

I inhaled the first series and thought I'd inhale the second, but - how can I put this? It's a bit slow. Its self-aware, self-congratulatory tone is grating, and the only thing left is a great soundtrack and Comer in some eye-catching outfits.

A recipe in search of a chef. Everything is more, everything is less.

Jodie Comer has perfected the psychopath. She's mesmerising as the ruthless assassin Villanelle in this thriller.
April 3, 2019
The show's greatest strength is the way it upends our expectations via tonal shifts and amusing personal details.

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 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 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.

Luckily, "Killing Eve" continues to deliver on its initial promise with sharp characters and even sharper wit.

"Killing Eve" is full of that sort of wicked humor the British excel in.
July 18, 2019
The strongest aspect of this second season is its unwillingness to reiterate or re-establish motive, instead twisting and growing to a dizzying finale.

Series two may have stylish boots to fill, but where a second run perhaps can't surprise as much, the characters are more intriguing.
April 12, 2019
Part of me isn't convinced. The other part is stronger, but makes no sense.
April 4, 2019
Killing Eve is still impossible to look away from, and hopefully, the show's energy will continue to flow as we prepare for another showdown within this duo's deadly dance.
March 25, 2019
The first two episodes of Killing Eve Season 2 are full of compelling twists and wrinkles, but it's the sly feminism at the heart of the show's cat-and-mouse game that makes it all so infectiously fun.
April 1, 2019
The show's dogged pursuit of revealing the good, bad, and whatever within each of us, a messy assortment of human parts that are perhaps neither entirely worth discarding or saving, answers that question better than any particular plot point.
March 25, 2019
With a nice, short run of episodes each season, this is a lean and complex drama that blends what would otherwise be a pretty generic concept with a biting sense of humor that works every step along the way.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
July 29, 2019
Killing Eve remains far and away one of the smartest, funniest, British dramas on television.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
July 2, 2019
Killing Eve tramples the tropes and stereotypes of spy stories and femininity with bankable style and flair.
April 15, 2019
[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.
