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.
Last series we saw a slightly softer side to Villanelle in her interactions with the young girl she abducted. Here [Jodie] Comer gives us an anti-heroine who's battered, scared, in pain, exhausted and outmanoeuvred. She's excellent.
Killing Eve" deftly continues the cat-and-mouse game that made this BBC America series one of 2018's most pleasant surprises -- an espionage caper loaded with dry wit, dark comedy and two splendid central performances.
Beyond funny, the series continues to be clever, with plenty of intriguing tricks up its sleeve, the retention of some good characters and we shall see how the newbies develop (two episodes isn't enough for that when they barely get screen time).
Thankfully, Killing Eve retains the snap-crackle-pop dialogue of season one, with women, adamant and scabrous, delivering the zingers, and men, generally horny, highfalutin and unknowing, withstanding them.
"Killing Eve" remains very much grounded in its original identity. This is a show about two women lovingly entwined by their own complicated obsessions, fighting for what they want in a world that doesn't understand them.
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.
