I am curious to know who loves this TV series as well and why.
For starters, I think this character is one of the most exciting characters on TV I’ve seen in years


& the way it’s written with the balance that it gets of tension, trauma, humour, action and pathos is brilliant!

Anyone else?

(BBC America viewers in the lucky position of getting to see Series 2 first before us in the U.K., I know you’ll obviously be mindful about masking/minimising spoilers, thank you in advance for this)

I absolutely love this show. The characters are very well written, with depth and nuance. And  Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer are phenomenal.

Eve? Or Villainelle?

The best way to tell a dickswab they are a dickswab is to kick them in the dick

Obv. I haven't got to S2 yet, but S1 was one of the best things on for a considerable time, no question.

I have the hardest time identifying with Eve and her obsession with Villainelle, especially after V killed Eve's friend in the club.

I get it, personally, but then again I am not exactly neurotypical, myself.

Season 2 delves into that a bit more.

Ah, it was Villanelle. I thought i’d posted an image link correctly, not sure what happened. But yeah, I think her character is brilliant.

I've never heard of that show. Does either Netflix or prime have it?

It's on Prime, that's how I watch it since I don't have a tv.
