I have seen the rest of the season and things happen! I cannot tell if people will be excited by them or if a sophomore slump narrative will really materialize and people will not be forgiving of things that they would cheered on last season. This week might be Jodie Comer’s tape. Fiona Shaw should probably submit the third episode.May 11, 2019 at 1:21 am #1202888642
I just wrote an article for Comer; a shame I hadn’t seen this week’s episode before it. And if episode 3 is all Shaw does, then she doesn’t deserve to be nowhere near the top 10.May 11, 2019 at 8:29 am #1202888893
pffft, talking about amazing Emmy tape for Comer. As Stefon would say: that episode [2×6] had everything.
If both will be nominated, and let’s face it – both deserve it, then sh*t is going to be intense and third party will probably win.
overall, I would say season 2 is having very solid second half and by the look of things (Riley post) – great finish. Tho I’m biased, because I was waiting for the show (and Eve) to lose it, to go even further into the wild, funny and crazy stuff. But how the audience and critics are going to react to this? I honestly have no idea.May 11, 2019 at 9:28 am #1202888961
I like where this is going.Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh have great quemistry. I’m hoping next seaaon they hide together from the twelve or something like that, I don’t want another season of the good and bad guy.May 11, 2019 at 9:50 am #1202888997

Same. I’m hoping that after s.2 finale there will be no coming back for them and it seems like this where they are heading.
Because as much as I love, and oh boi I do love Phoebe Waller Bridge, she did leave a beautiful mess after s.1 finale. Emerald Fennell didn’t have an easy task and after some uncertain narreative steps at the beginning of the season, she eventually steadied the ship and started to do her own thing. At least that’s my impression.May 11, 2019 at 5:30 pm #1202889397
Just watched the pilot (“Nice Face”), and I’m immediately hooked. Didn’t think that the tone of the series would be this flippant, but maybe I should have known with Phoebe Waller-Bridge creating it. Definitely will watch more of this series!May 12, 2019 at 1:21 pm #1202890529
Finished season 1. Very absorbing series. Surprisingly funny and gory throughout, but convoluted as things concluded. I’m glad that Sandra Oh landed on such a meaty role, but the real revelation is Jodie Comer. There isn’t really a comparison. Comer should be landing nomination after nomination and Emmy after Emmy and isn’t even being nominated, which is shameful. Also, Fiona Shaw was like I’ve never seen her before, and I couldn’t get enough! This all reminded me of “Bodyguard” in some ways. I shouldn’t have waited this long to see it. Binging also works very well for content like this. Onto season 2, hopefully in the very near future.May 12, 2019 at 3:49 pm #1202890606
Yesss…so well deservedMay 13, 2019 at 12:35 pm #1202892366
Season 2 Premiere. Generally liked it, but I’m not sure about how Eve is drawn back into Carolyn’s fold (doing autopsy investigating on one of Villanelle’s killings that we haven’t heard of yet). Loved the scenes between Villanelle and the injured boy in the hospital. So sardonic in a sadly dry yet upbeat tone that I’ve never seen done like this on television before. I have little, if anything, to properly compare it to, which is a good thing. Well, maybe the Showtime half-hour female-led dramedies of yore, but far less earnest.May 14, 2019 at 1:49 pm #1202893919
Another strong episode.
The show is back in form after a slow start.
Jodie Comer should win Outstanding Lead Actress in A Drama Series.
Oh, sadly, sometimes looks like a supporting player.
I hope they deliver with the final two.May 14, 2019 at 3:07 pm #1202894069
Anyone who watched the BAFTA acceptance speeches, it obviously seems like Sandra Oh didn’t make it to the ceremony, but was it just me or was it a little awkward how none of the many people who won for the show even mentioned her in their speeches? Not trying to read anything, just thought it was a little awkward hahaMay 14, 2019 at 11:41 pm #1202894458

I remember Fiona Shaw did thank Sandra Oh, but yeah it was a bit weird that Comer or Waller-Bridge didn’t mention her in their speechesMay 15, 2019 at 1:10 am #1202894545
Yeah, Jodie Comer was getting to the end of her speech and said that she had one more person to thank, so I assumed that it would be Sandra Oh, but nope, it was her dead grandma.May 15, 2019 at 8:43 am #1202894897
I didn’t know I wanted Killing Eve be a new Hannibal. But I am loving it.
