When a case falls into their laps involving the murder of a pretty college girl, Annalise's life and her students' lives drastically change for better or worse. Mostly worse.
How To Get Away With Murder is an epic show to prove that sometimes, the truth is stranger than fiction.
What I loved: As I'm writing this, my jaw is still completely dropped after finishing Season 1 of How To Get Away With Murder. Wow. Just wow.
I'm in total and utter shock. It's been a long time since a television show has inspired such raw emotion, but Shonda Rhimes strikes again.
The show starts fast, intense and gripping. You'll get sucked in faster than you can say, "Innocent until proven guilty."
I became undeniably addicted to this show and binged the entire season in three or four sittings.
There are twists and turns around every corner, none of which are easily predictable. Amidst the clever plot and fascinating lessons of the law, the show is laced with sexual tension, moral challenges and transfixing music.
As the story progresses, it becomes a little complicated, but fear not, the flashbacks inserted throughout the episodes will keep you up to speed.
All of the characters are appealing in my opinion too.
Here is a quick rundown of the top cast, including where you may have seen them before...
Viola Davis- The Help
Billy Brown- Sons of Anarchy
Alfred Enoch- HARRY POTTER
Jack Falahee- Rage
Matt McGorry- Orange Is The New Black
Karla Souza- The Noble Family
Charlie Weber- Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Aja Naomi King- Emily Owens M.D.
Liza Weil- Scandal
Tom Verica- American Dreams
What I didn't: My only complaint is that besides the flashbacks pertaining to the story, we don't have much previous knowledge of the characters' backgrounds or where they come from.
In Season Two, I would like to learn more about each character to fully understand their roles and stories.
Also, what the heck does Frank do?! Is his job title Annalise's muscle man?
Season Two is in on ABC now.
Binge Season One on Netflix, then catch up on ABC.com until you are on par with the television schedule.
It's now just one episode until the winter break for HTGAWM and this season certainly isn't boring, however, I feel it lacks a certain enthralling magic Season 1 possessed. At times, I'm somewhat confused, and with all the lying that happens among characters, I often forget what's a lie and what is the truth. Here's hoping the mid-season finale ramps up and the season comes back stronger after the winter break.
