    Anybody else catch the debut tonight? I enjoyed it, looking forward to upcoming episodes. About a low level MI5 officer who happens to be a bit obsessed with female assassins, and a female assassin as luck would have it. Sandra Oh plays the MI5 officer. Jodie Comer is the assassin. I was impressed w/ Comer in another BBC series a year or two ago, 13.

    I don't watch everything they produce, but I generally enjoy BBC series. 13 that I mentioned was just a one off, 8 episodes or so. "Orphan Black" kinda dragged on towards the end and jumped the shark, but the first several season were fascinating. Killing Eve looks like it will be quirky, with some humor and some grittiness. I think it's going to end up being a cat and mouse game between the Oh and Comer.

    Still really enjoying this. They aren't exactly going for realism. The assassin is completely loony and has some unnecessary actions that probably should compromise her identity, although the show is ignoring that.

    Season is over already, I think there were only 10 episodes. End of the season finale made absolutely no sense to me. Wasn't even real a cliff hanger, but a definite non ending. I'm assuming there will be a season 2. Enjoyed it overall.
