  • A little more slow-paced at the beginning, but action-packed at the end!

    8.5
    Daily Bread serves as further character development of our two heroines, showing them trying to live together. It's obvious that they're two entirely different people, even though they're both professional killers. There is also a lot of events occuring around these two, specifically regarding an anti-terrorist unit called GIGN, which is being systematically killed. It's too soon to say whether this will become linked up with the Noir duo.



    At first glance, I'd say it's a very good possibility. After all, one of the targets in this episode recognizes the name Noir as that of a top-secret assassin who did work for the government during the 70's. There's little time to dwell on that mystery, however, because the new Noir shows up to take the terrorists down.



    An action packed episode at the end, and even the slow parts were pretty good and really made a good showing of the dichotomy between the two girls. It would have been good to get a little more information of the GIGN and the other events here in France, but I guess that will show up in future episodes.moreless
