‘Killing Eve’ follows the cat and mouse game between two women who are on an epic journey, full of action, to catch hold of each other. Eve, a spy, realizes that her job isn’t as exciting and dynamic as she thought it would be and is bored with her desk-bound duties. Villanelle, on the other hand, is a highly talented killer who enjoys the many luxuries that her job offers. The two women’s lives get entangled in a chain of events. The story might sound really cliched because it just seems like another show about a talented spy who tries to catch a killing machine villain — a template story-line for most of the shows of this genre. However, ‘Killing Eve’ is surely a touch above all other typical spy shows and proves to be far more entertaining and action-packed.

12. Mr. Robot (2015)
Starring Oscar Winner Rami Malek, ‘Mr. Robot’ is about a young man named Elliott, a cyber-security engineer by day who works for an MNC and a genius hacker by night whose core targets are felons. Apart from all this, he also spends a great amount of time hacking the social media accounts of those around him to know them better instead of actually going up to them and talking. Elliott finds himself right in the middle of a shitstorm when he is hired by an anarchist hackers organization to destroy the company he works for. ‘Mr. Robot’ is by far one of the most engaging thriller dramas out there and the fact that it is so easy these days to easily get access to someone’s personal life and even bring down a whole organization will send chills down your spine.
11. Sharp Objects (2018)
This HBO original stars Amy Adams who plays the role of a reporter who just got out of the psychological ward of a hospital. As soon as she gets home to her neurotic mother, she learns about the recent murders of two teenage girls that took place in her town and feels drawn towards decoding the mystery behind these incidents. While she solves this case of brutal murders, she must learn to tame the demons of her past that paralyze her and may even have the key to solving the mystery that grips her town. The only problem with this show is that it’s a miniseries and it is so good that after its entire 8 episode run, you’ll be begging for more of it.
