About Why Women Kill Season 1
There may be just a smidge of female rage out there. It was always simmering, but after certain presidential candidates made specific comments, it boiled over. Hell hath no fury like a country full of women whose leader brags about assaulting them.
And so we get “Why Women Kill,” a crime series about three women from different eras who plot the demise of their husbands. Do the husbands deserve it? Maybe. Do men, in general, deserve it? Of course not. But there is a certain raw vicarious satisfaction in watching the series, which no doubt has contributed to its popularity. Recently it was renewed for a second season, this time showcasing a new cast of characters that we can watch slowly unravel.
Casting, of course, is key to its appeal. There are so many favorites from other beloved shows that it feels like having a costume theme party with old friends. Ginnifer Goodwin is Beth Ann, the classic put-upon wife from 1963 forever hampered by her domineering and adulterous husband (Sam Jaeger). Lucy Liu (or Simone) is glorious as a wealthy, vapid socialite in 1984 whose husband (Jack Davenport of “Smash”) turns out to be gay. And then in the present-day, we get Kirby Howell-Baptiste, aka Simone of “The Good Place” fame. Her situation is complicated by the fact that she is bi and in an open marriage with a writer played by Reid Scott (“Veep.”)
All those scenes from past decades provide “Why Women Kill” with opportunities to play with a wide array of costumes, props, and sets. The show sets each one of these women in the same house, which time and time again experiences domestic tragedy even as it morphs from decade to decade.
“Why Women Kill” is dripping with soapy, campy allure. That plus the mystery of how and why each crime came to pass makes for a formula that has proved successful for Paramount+
