There was so much good TV, you might have missed some.

Killing Eve

Killing Eve quietly dropped on SBS on Demand mid-year.

The series follows the story of Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) a bored, desk-bound MI5 security officer who begins to track down a psychopathic assassin named Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

Eve is soon moved to a special task force to work on the case, and as she gets closer and closer to tracking down Villanelle, the assassin becomes dangerously obsessed with her.

Killing Eve is a suspenseful, dark comedy in which nothing is quite what it seems. It'll keep you on the edge of your seat and make you laugh out loud.

You can watch the full first season of Killing Eve on ABC iView now.

The Bold Type

The Bold Type is the perfect show to waste away those hot summer days.

The series follows the story of three 20-something women - Jane (Katie Stevens), Kat (Aisha Dee), and Sutton (Meghann Fahy) - who all work for Scarlet magazine.

The three best friends started at the magazine at the same time as assistants and are now helping each other traverse the often bumpy road of career highs and lows, relationship ups and downs, and the big moments in life that make you question everything.

Watching The Bold Type is like receiving a big hug from your best friend.
