Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Nice and Neat

The claustrophobic second episode of Killing Eve's new season is even better than the premiere

This Killing Eve review contains spoilers.

Killing Even Season 2 Episode 2

Episode 2 of Killing Eve manages to do a rare thing: it makes Villanelle seem weak and vulnerable. The artfully claustrophobic episode is even more intense than the premiere, the tension tightly coiled as both Eve and Villanelle encounter new territory and the line between who is cat and who is mouse becomes ever blurrier.

Like a drawn-out reversal of the cold open of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Pilot, “Nice and Neat” knows we’re operating under the impression that Villanelle is beyond deadly, and any man in her path is unfortunate to find himself there. No amount of injury, illness, or social expectations could make Villanelle a victim – could they?

And therein lies the genius of this episode. The deadliest woman in the world is still a woman.

Shunori Ramanthan, Victor Slezak Join Michael Keaton In ‘What Is Life Worth’
Exclusive: Shunori Ramanthan and Victor Slezak have joined the cast of the Michael Keaton-starrer What Is Life Worth. The true-life biographical drama is directed by The Kindergarten Teacher‘s Sara Colangelo and also stars Stanley Tucci. Principal photography is set to begin next month in New York.

The Black List script from Max Borenstein is based on Kenneth Feinberg’s memoir. It’s described as being in the vein of Erin Brockovich and the Oscar-winning Keaton- and Tucci-starrer Spotlight. The story centers on Feinberg, a powerful DC insider lawyer put in charge of the 9/11 Fund. In almost three years of pro bono work on the case, Feinberg fought off the cynicism, bureaucracy and politics associated with administering government funds to victims’ families — and in doing so, discovered what life is worth.

Ramanathan will play Anisha Dass, a young Ivy League-educated lawyer who had been preparing to work for a

Exclusive: Pete Holmes Goes Deep on ‘Crashing’s Cancellation, That Finale, and a Potential Movie

45 minutes before I was due to interview Pete Holmes about the Season 3 finale of his HBO series Crashing, news hit that the show was cancelled. HBO would not be bringing the charming half-hour comedy back for a fourth season. This was unexpected to say the least, and admittedly threw me for a loop. I was all primed and ready to dig into that excellent finale episode and John Mulaney’s involvement, and how Holmes and his team crafted the show’s best season yet, and now I was sitting here wondering what kind of mood Holmes would …

Hollywood Worries: Will HBO Still Be the Home of Prestige TV After Richard Plepler’s Departure?

  • The Wrap
Hollywood is paying close attention to what HBO’s new owners will do with the network now that Richard Plepler’s long run of hits, awards and acclaim is coming to a close.

“HBO is the gold standard. I hope they stick with quality not quantity,” said Judd Apatow, whose shows “Girls” and “Crashing” are among HBO’s critical darlings. “Their choices over the next few days and weeks will tell us a lot about the direction they are choosing to go in.”

Plelper announced Thursday that he will exit the network where he greenlit successes like “Veep” and “Game of Thrones.” HBO is now the property of At&T, overseen by WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey, who has called on HBO to substantially increase subscriptions and the amount of time that viewers spend watching.

Crashing Season 3: Judd Apatow on Approaching Difficult Topics in Comedy

Chris Longo Jan 30, 2019

We spoke with executive producer and director Judd Apatow about his career and Crashing Season 3.

In his critically acclaimed 2018 Netflix special, “The Return,” Judd Apatow fondly recalled his stand-up comedy roots. He worked as a teenager in East Side Comedy Club in Long Island where he saw the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Rosie O’Donnell, Jim Carrey and Eddie Murphy perform. The Huntington, Long Island club, which shuttered in 1995, became a home away from home for Apatow during a time when his parents were going through marital trouble. He joked in the special that he returned to stand-up comedy to “lower his salary and self-esteem,” but a throughline of Apatow’s career has been a fascination with the plight of the stand-up comic, from his film Funny People, to his work with Pete Holmes on Crashing, and the recent HBO documentary on the late Gary Shandling which he executive produced.

Freeform Developing Subversive Comedy ‘The Girlfriend’ From Jamie Lee, James Griffiths & ABC Signature

  • Deadline
Freeform Developing Subversive Comedy ‘The Girlfriend’ From Jamie Lee, James Griffiths & ABC Signature
Freeform has put into development The Girlfriend, from writer-actress-comedian Jamie Lee, director James Griffiths and ABC Signature Studios.

Written by Lee, The Girlfriend is a new take on a rom-com. It revolves around Crystal Chase — a 30-something toiling away in Bakersfield, California — whose life is turned upside down when she finally meets “the one”… Too bad “the one” is the prime suspect in his wife’s mysterious disappearance. This is a subversive romantic comedy about a woman struggling with her soul as she evolves from a local nobody into the nationally infamous “girlfriend.”

It’s hard not to see spot parallels between The Girlfriend and headline-making “other women” such as Scott Petterson’s ex-girlfriend Amber Frey and the mistress of “killer dad” Chris Watts who was recently thrown into the spotlight after Watts’ wife and children went missing.

Lee will write the pilot script and will co-executive produce.

Crashing Season 3: Pete Holmes And The Validation of Rising In The Comedy Ranks

Chris Longo Jan 18, 2019

Pete tastes success in Crashing Season 3, but can he sustain it?

Fictional Pete (or “Fp” as real Pete Holmes calls him) is still looking for his “big break.” What exactly constitutes a “big break” is all relative in the stand-up world. Through two seasons of Crashing, Pete has earned the respect of his peers as he hustled through the club scene, has been reluctantly championed by the likes of Artie Lange, Bill Burr, and Jeff Ross to name a few, and landed a college tour, though it fractured his relationship with his girlfriend and fellow comic Ali (Jamie Lee). Crashing Season 3 begins with a montage of Pete acing his college tour, which gives the comedian a budding ego.

“There are people that I know that they don't get ‘breaks,’ they get like, sprains,” Holmes tells Den of Geek of the roller coaster stand-up circuit. “They haven't broken into show business,

Funny New Trailer For Pete Holmes' HBO Comedy Series Crashing

HBO has released a new trailer for the third season of comedian Pete Holmes’ HBO series Crashing and it’s pretty damn funny.

I love this show! Holmes is a funny guy and I love the uncomfortable awkwardness that he brings to this show. If you haven’t started watching the show yet and you enjoy laughing, you should check it out!

The new season “finds Pete reinvigorated, meaning he’s no longer crashing on people’s couches. With this newfound vigor, he reenters the NYC stand-up comedy world following a college tour. But even though he’s improved, that doesn’t mean he’s at the head of the pack. While continuing to orbit around fellow comic and ex-girlfriend Ali, he connects with a new woman, Kat, who has a unique perspective on the comedy world and isn’t trying to make it big by telling jokes.

‘Crashing’ Trailer: Pete Holmes Gets A Girlfriend & Tackles The Idea Of Consent In His HBO Series

Best TV Comedies of 2018

Chris Longo Alec Bojalad Nick Harley Daniella Bondar Daniel Kurland Andrew Husband David Crow Joe Matar Dec 18, 2018

Our staffs, readers, and some celebrity friends come together to select the Best TV comedies of the year!

How does TV comedy keep getting better?

Dramas hit a bit of a plateau on television in 2018. The likes of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and even The Leftovers are now distant memories. Better Call Saul lives on, and The Americans concluded in fine fashion but the landscape after that isn’t as nearly as impressive as years’ past.

More than ever, it is comedy that is the driving force behind the most daring, creative, and fun storytelling on television. Perhaps that’s because comedy is more context-dependent than drama and therefore must be more adaptable and change with the times. Or maybe it’s simply because we all just want to laugh? Whatever the reason,
