    Finished this last night. Best TV of the year along with 'Save Me'. Jodie Comer was incredible.

    :eek: WHAT THE ****!

    Some ending! I'll have to see how season 2 goes.


    I kinda binged this show over the last week.
    I almost did it over a couple of days as I was glued to the first two episodes.

    Then in the third episode (mostly good) .. BUT.. it kinda feel down on the wall of believability.. or is it the suspension of disbelief.. or something.. but it was going fine until after the subway scene when it got to the nightclub. Compared to the show previous it just seemed to give up. It felt like it was one or a combo of the the production/direction/script which let it down.

    The fourth episode was similarly poor. Somewhere between 5 and 6, the show started to recover and then that ending!

    Checking Wiki, I see that the writers and directors of 3 were a change from 1 and 2 and then by episode 6, they were gone:

    Jodie Comer (Villanelle) and Sandra Oh (Eve) really made the show work though.

    Keep watching...it gets better. Such a great show with proper layered characters.

    I watched the first episode, its an interesting one for sure. How does it work though, I mean the lead isn’t an anti hero type like Dexter for instance. She has no redeeming qualities worth rooting for so you want her to be caught at the soonest.

    Eve is the lead rather than the assassin I would say but both characters become more layered as you go...and its fun as hell!

    i liked the premise, but a bit too much feminist fan service though for my liking, lost interest in it by the end

    I agree with you there - I'm only two episodes in but, perhaps with the exception of Eve's senior colleague, all of the men get made eejits of to some extent.

    I think it's brilliant though - thoroughly enjoying it. I love the way MI5 folk just do normal office things like wait in the staff kitchen for something to heat in the microwave. :D
