These Drinks Is Vicious: The Killing Eve Thread

I loved a lot of Killing Eve, especially Jodie Comer--funniest psychopath since Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs; I thought at first Sandra Oh's mannerisms would drive me up the wall, but I came to like her a lot, too--but not the ending. It was such a blatant "we have to do something to set up a second season" mish-mash. Found the music fascinating. Didn't know any of it--it felt like one long version of "Some Velvet Morning" at times.

I want to rewatch all of Killing Eve again soon. Maybe right before the next season comes out. Sandra Oh is usually the best thing in everything she is in.

I loved Oksana's supervisor: "These drinks is vicious." The ongoing by-play between the two of them was the highlight of the show for me.

I watched the first episode, then half of the second, then bailed out. But then I came back a week or so later and made it to the end. There was some really good stuff in it - Sandra Oh was fantastic, as mentioned, and it was good to see Kim Bodnia from The Bridge again (as Jodie Comer's handler), but yeah, the ending sucked, and the whole "Russia is a dank hellhole where everyone will betray you at a moment's notice" thing was a total cliché. (As was the whole "sexy young woman is super-assassin" thing.) But the woman who played Comer's former teacher was great. A mixed bag at best.

Bookmarking even though we've only finished the first episode.

It fell off quite rapidly about five episodes in but the first few are excellent and Jodie Comer is phenomenal throughout. I’m looking forward to season two.

(xpost) I had a feeling the music had been made specifically for the show; it seemed unlikely that with so many songs I wouldn't recognize at least a couple of them. Really inventive.

Agree with SV it tails off p badly. But I may just feel that way because my favorite relationship is the one between Eve and yer man out of Ben Elton sitcoms. In fact he's the best thing in it by far.

I listen to the Killing Eve sndtk on youtube sometimes. "Killer Shangri-Lah" and "K" are so great. So much slowdivey atmosphere.

I think the last one did. And was available as a box set.

In the epg I can see one episode listed for Apr 12 at 23:25 which I think is a repeat.

Season 1 aired six months later in the UK.

Getting a break in Toronto--it'll be playing on Bravo, basic to any cable subscription.

Thought last night was okay. Nothing more, nothing less.

Getting better. The new handler looks like he'll be great, nice twist at the end.

saw the first episode and thought the small amusements of the early episodes of S1 were absent - lacked the charm of the interplay between characters. I enjoyed all of S1, even in its more wild later episodes, but it will need a bit more than Villanelle being capriciously violent and pouting to do it.
