First of all, let me apologize to anyone reading this who knows me in real life. I’ve been going on and on about this show for the past month and this will likely be the thousandth time they’ve heard me rave about it.
How to Get Away with Murder is the best, most addictive show I’ve ever watched. I started it on a whim because Grey’s Anatomy is on a hiatus and I’d seen all the episodes in the latest season of Law and Order: SVU. I didn’t know much about it other than that it stars Viola Davis and is about law; seemed like something I might like.
Well, I watched episode one and was totally hooked. Over the next two weeks, I watched the entirety of seasons one and two, even dragging my boyfriend along for the ride. So now I’m sharing the wealth and recommending it to you, too.
How to Get Away with Murder, a ShondaLand show, follows Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), a tough defense attorney and criminal law professor based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Along with a team of her five best students, plus her two employees, Bonnie (Liza Weil) and Frank (Charlie Weber), she works on criminal defense cases while simultaneously dealing with wild drama of her own.
The characters are at once lovable and despicable, which makes the show extremely entertaining to watch because you simply can’t guess how they will behave. The score is excellent, as is the set and costume design, and it’s nearly impossible to just watch one episode at once. It’s kind of like reading The DaVinci Code, where every other chapter follows a different sub-story, so to find out what happens in Chapter 12, you have to read all the way through to Chapter 14. It’s a wild ride!
You can watch seasons one and two of How to Get Away with Murder now on Netflix. Season three premieres this fall, so you have plenty of time to catch up before then! 😉
