(KGET) — Seasons of television shows dominate the new releases on DVD and Blu-ray this week.

“Killing Eve, Season 3” Grade 4 stars: The writing and production values for this series are superb and major reasons it was nominated for eight 2020 Primetime Emmys including Outstanding Drama Series. But, it is the work of Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer as the show’s two main stars who have made this one of TV’s best programs.

They again show their skills in this third season that continues the story of two women with brutal pasts who are addicted to each other but are trying desperately to live their lives. It is a daily struggle for both. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances

The episodes were worth watching when they originally aired on AMC. They are even better with this DVD set because the work can be watched repeatedly. And every frame is worth multiple viewings.
