Stunningly good first episode. Very exciting. Only giving it 4 stars but may bump it up if they keep up this level of cat and mouse. Both women are perfect for their parts. The assasin is breathtakingly beautiful. Let the bodies hit the floor!
UPDATE: After the second episode, I'm less jazzed about the show. The writer's timing is off and they have already launched into the psychological problems of the assasin, when they should still be showing what a bad ass she is killing and enjoying the kills. If episode 2 was episode 3 or 4 it would have been much better for the flow of the show. I'm a writer, its like trying to dance to a song that keeps changing the beat, you are getting into it ready to drop the bass and suddenly they are playing a lullaby and you are standing alone on the dance floor wondering why you are at this crappy club.
Maybe they can get back into the groove, but it was a plot mistake in my opinion.
UPDATE SEASON 2: Its rare for a show to have a better season 2 than season 1. The cat and mouse continues but in a profound manner where Eve character becomes more like Villanelle, Villanelle becomes more like Eve. Its delicious in its subtleties.
Brilliant! I haven't been this excited about the cemetery and chemistry between characters and script in a long time. This one has the something that's been missing you can't quite put your finger on.
