Sandra Oh is back at Olympus. Anyway, that's what it looks like when you look at the odds of their new series "Killing Eve". In late May, the season finale in the US ran at BBC America and promptly set a record: Each of the eight episodes reached more viewers than the previous one. There has never been anything like it - certainly not with a first season. Ultimately, 86% more viewers saw the final than the pilot. This unprecedented success makes the series the top contender of the award season. Emmy nominations already seem certain that the Golden Globe could be in the coming year. But what is actually in "Killing Eve"? The series is based on the Villanelle books by Luke Jennings. Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) finds in it the psychopathic hitman Villanelle (Jodie Corner). Soon after, the women are almost obsessed with each other. The trailer gives an interesting insight. At first glance, the two series have little in common: while "Gray's Anatomy" tells of highly emotional stories in and around a hospital, "Killing Eve" deals with British domestic intelligence and a character study, exploring the psyche of two individuals. And yet: true fans of GA are true fans of Sandra Oh and that's why "Killing Eve" is a must for them.
