Giedroyc and Perkins' new Peacock female assassins dark comedy is exactly what it sounds like. "Admittedly, Hitmen doesn't profess the ambition of those other comedies," says Inkoo Kang. "With six 22-minute episodes comprising the debut season, it's content to be an appetizer. There's a 'just enough' quality to pretty much every facet of the series: the charm of its lead performances, the freshness of its jokes and storylines, the modest flourishes in its visuals and stunts. (Armed but physically graceless, the middle-aged, frumpily costumed Giedroyc and Perkins are also just barely believable as mid- to lower-tier contract killers.) In GBBO terms, there's nothing resembling a showstopper here, but it's perfectly proficient as a technical challenge."
