"Killing Eve"

The scheming and manipulating, of course, is at the heart of “Killing Eve.” At surface-level, the show is a kind of mindless, stylish caper.

From the time it premiered 20 years ago on NBC, certain people have always wanted to believe Washington operated like “The West Wing.” They wanted to imagine slick, educated, smooth-talking technocrats briskly walking through corridors and “reaching across the aisle” to solve the problems the people of America. Civility and respect are the name of the game in this fiction. However, if the events of the 21st century haven’t already cracked this façade, the last few years most certainly have.

"Little Women: LA"

But, in my quest to hate it, I was swiftly knocked down. While the form is stale, uninspired and awkward, the premiere’s story managed to spark some genuine emotion.

Peele steps into Serling’s narrator role and does it effortlessly. It’s only when he opens his mouth that you’ll wish he had been a bit more involved.

There weren’t many “oh snap” moments, which is a crucial component every good reality TV show needs to capture its audience.
