We’re bringing the drama this week for our Channel Surfing TV picks with a pair of female fronted thrillers and a historical series. An FBI agent and international criminal play the ultimate game of cat and mouse in The Endgame. Follow a new generation of well-known Norsemen in Vikings: Valhalla. Then Eve and Villanelle try to take down The Twelve once and for all in the final season of Killing Eve.
The New Queen of Crime
The Endgame stars Morena Baccarin and Ryan Michelle Bathé on opposite sides of the law. The former plays a criminal mastermind and international arms dealer who orchestrates a number of coordinated bank heists all throughout New York City. The latter assumes the role of a principled FBI agent intent on foiling the elaborate plan. The two also have a complicated past so things are even more personal.
There is plenty of action and suspense as the two leads face off against each other but the bigger mystery is the motivation behind the crimes. Throw in a pilot episode directed by Justin Lin of Fast & Furious fame, and you have the beginning of an interesting show.
The series premiere of The Endgame is tonight, February 21, on NBC.

Vikings is a popular historical drama that aired on the History channel and later, Prime Video. It followed the rise of chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok from farmer to Scandinavian king. In the sequel, Vikings: Valhalla, viewers jump in time one hundred years and encounter a new generation.
