The TV series Killing Eve was flooding my timeline a while ago. Many of my friends watched this TV series, and they all recommended it to me. After a while, I finally can't resist and started to watch it. Killing Eve is based on Luke Jennings’s Codename Villanelle novella series. Let's see what happens between the two fierce women!

Villanelle is a talented psychopathic killer who clings to the luxuries her job affords her. She's graceful, smart, and very proud that she thinks no one can catch her. Moreover, Eve is bored, whip-smart security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn't fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Their story starts when Eve tracked down Villanelle and began to work at a department that doesn't exist. They obsessed with each other and went head to head in a game of cat and mouse.

I was so amazed when I watched the first episode. The plot is fascinating, and the actors do a great job as well. The screen score is another part that I love about it. The music they use fits the scenes just perfect. There's one scene the music is playing " I had to kill you, I'm really sorry…" while Villanelle was on a mission of killing. I laughed when I heard the music. It's funny yet subtle. Besides that, I like the character Villanelle so much. She's a killer who is crazy, passionate, and talented. Her outstanding character and the screen score make this TV series thrilling yet a tad funny.

If you have watched it, you might find out the main characters are mostly females. The killer Villanelle, the MI5 officer Eve, and the head of the Russian Section of MI6 Carolyn, they are the independent women who are intelligent and unflappable. Apart from that, the male characters compared to the female ones are a bit weaker. For example, the hacker Kenny couldn't say the word "castration," and the supervisor Frank looks like a mighty man, but when Villanelle assassinated him, he was weak and keen for comfort. It breaks the stereotypes that we have about men and women and also satirizes the society.

You will see how Eve and Villanelle obsess with each other in the middle of the first season. When Eve helped Frank escape from Villanelle, she suddenly stopped the car on the road, and got out and tried to talk to Villanelle. Her action is unbelievable. Villanelle is a cold killer that can easily kill anyone and doesn't care about anything. Moreover, Eve risked her life just because she wanted to talk to her. Surprisingly, Villanelle didn't kill Eve. I think I was sucked into the plot since then. There are eight episodes in season 1, and I've subscribed for season 2 already! Can't wait to watch more!!
