Snatches: Moments from Women’s Lives is a series of short monologues from women. It first aired on the BBC in 2018. Each monologue tells one woman’s story. Each is powerful and strongly delivered by 8 outstanding actors.
Julia, episode 5, “Crepes Suzette” happened to be released during the same week as the finale of Killing Eve. Instead of recapping or reviewing the episode, I’m going to look at some parallels between the two TV shows and their respective casts.
Help is a film from the UK about the first few months of the COVID pandemic and how Care homes in Britain tried to deal with the situation. This Acorn TV import puts you right at the heart of how it felt to be hopelessly unprepared for the deaths of the people in your care.
Free Guy was pure fun, an escapist delight. I actually wanted to see it because of Jodie Comer, but before it was over I was delighted by everyone in the cast. The film is in theaters now, but you can rent or buy it on YouTube, which is how I saw it. (Apple TV+ also has it.)
Have you noticed how much time Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri spends staring at herself in a mirror on Killing Eve? She does it in almost every episode. Is she trying to figure out just who she is, now that Villanelle (Jodie Comer) has taken over her life?
Season Two of Killing Eve opened with “Do You Know How to Dispose of a Body?” The episode began 30 seconds after the stabbing at end of season 1. While there are spoilers ahead, I will mainly talk about how new series writer Emerald Fennell stepped up to keep our beloved characters and story going.
