Killing Eve is wicked! I didn’t expect this at all. The two women cross each other’s path in a very unlikely way. They shock each other, they study each other, they chase each other, they were abscessed with each other, then they want to kill each other. There seemed to be an invisible string between these two women. They pull on each others’ nerves all the time. It’s a cat and mouse chasing game, yet, sometimes, they would smoothly switch the role of the cat and the mouse. The storyline keeps you on the edge, thanks to the writers.
The two actresses were superb in this series. You will be impressed with their performances – it’s difficult to tiptoe around the fine line of being normal or a sociopath.
Mary Kills People tells the story of Mary Harris, who works at the emergency department of the Eden General Hospital by day but illegally provides the “end of life counsellor” service on the side.
Of course, such a “business” is high maintenance, her life is soon becoming very complicated. The police are on her back, the drug dealer, the sister, the children and her problematic partner.
Mary Kills People will remind you of cult shows such as Weeds or Breaking Bad. It’s a bit weird, a bit out of there, a bit dark, and a bit edgy. Mary, Nancy and Walter all have this “life changing” experiences with drugs and drug dealers. Death, on the other side, are all their excuses to the drama they are in, drugs, drug dealers and death. Mary is very attractive while Nancy has the charisma, Walter has his intelligence.
Some say Mary is an advocate of Physician-assisted death, and this show brings up the discussion of euthanasia. The show is portraying death as a moment of celebration – “there is beauty in the inevitable”. It’s never delved into the topic any deeper though. It became just a thing that Mary does. Too much screen time is spent on Mary’s personal life drama.
Season 1 was refreshing but season 2 became a slow burn. Season 3 is showing now. What do you thing? Is it worth watching?
