The Rise of "Killing Eve" Star Sandra Oh
Now that we have my initial impressions out of the way, here's what I will say:
I am so impressed with this show. I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting to like it, but, boy, does this first episode impress. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Something about this show has me oddly hooked Something about it leaves me wanting MORE! I love the music choices, the acting is superb, and so is the directing. All excellent.
Another thing: this show has some odd sense of humor and I LOVE it! I found myself laughing, and that was the last thing I expected.
Several times, I thought to myself: OMG why am I laughing at this right now? I'm a terrible human being!
Perhaps the best part of this is show's cast is seeing that Sandra Oh finally got the role she deserves. She kills all of her scenes -- just like everyone else -- but it's clear to see she sticks out from the rest of the cast. -I was so happy when she appeared on one my most favorite shows last year, "American Crime," but her appearance was less than a guest appearance. (I bet that was due to the budget cuts and reduced season length, which ultimately led to season 3's different set up that many hated but I personally loved.) For that reason, though, I was disappointed in not seeing her as much, but she still amazed me and did so great with Regina King. I've been missing "American Crime" so much, and I think this show can fill that void in some aspects. Oh is just amazing.
Speaking of Oh, I started watching this solely because she's in it. And I am so pleased it's actually an awesome show.
I'll surely be sticking around for this one. I'm even happier to know that there will be a season 2 because I'm interested in seeing where this is going.
I give "Killing Eve" an 8.5/10.
