How to Get Away with Murder

Season 1:

Episode 1; Pilot.

I don’t normally watch network TV. The only exception to this is Hannibal (which always amazes me that it’s on NBC). But my mother watched How to Get Away with Murder the other night and thought it was really good, so I thought what the hell, I’ll give it a try. The show is basically about a criminal defense professor who teaches law and her students. Each episode there is a crime that has to be solved/covered up. [Read more…]

Episode 2; It’s All Her Fault.

So I’m still watching this show although it is very uneven. Basically everything Viola Davis does is great and makes the show worth watching. But everything else is quite bad and makes me want to turn the TV off. This show has such a great thing going with Viola, they really don’t need anything else to make it interesting. But instead they’ve added in a bunch of annoying, forgettable students and two different, confusing “Who dunnit?” murder plots. [Read more…]

Episode 3; Smile or Go to Jail.

This was a good episode. The best one so far in my opinion. It is due to a combination of 2 things. 1) There was a whole lot less flashing back and forth. It mostly stuck to just one time. Which was good because it gave the show time to breathe and [Read more…]

Episode 4; Let’s Get to Scooping.

This episode was pretty good. Not my favorite, but good. I liked that Connor (Jack Falahee) was the focus for a lot of it. The audience is beginning to see a few more sides of him. He is a player, but he still has a heart. I actually kind of like [Read more…]

Episode 5; We’re Not Friends.

This episode might as well be called the Laurel episode. She is the student most involved with the case they are defending and her relationship with Frank is explained a little more. But not much more. I thought for sure we were going to see them bone, [Read more…]

Episode 6; Freakin’ Whack-A-Mole.

This was a good episode, although not the most exciting. If last week was the Laurel episode, this week was the Asher episode. Of all the students Asher (Matt McGorry) has stood out the least. This episode fleshes him out, but [Read more…]

Episode 7; He Deserved to Die.

Voodoo penis.” One of few highlights this episode. Okay, I’ve been pretty slow with my HTGAWM (WTF????) recaps these days. But at least I’m getting this one up before tonight’s new episode! Okay, last week’s episode was [Read more…]

Episode 8; He Has a Wife.

This episode had a lot going on, but I’m not sure how much of it was really anything new. There are flashbacks to Lila (Megan West) when she was alive and dating Mr. Darcy. I was glad to [Read more…]

Episode 9; Kill Me, Kill Me, Kill Me.

So I finally got around to watching the winter finale of HTGAWM (it takes me a full 30 seconds to type that). Nearly two weeks late, but I recently started a new job, so I’m a little behind on blogging.
Anyways this ended up being a pretty good episode. Although it didn’t start out that way. The crime this week is Sam’s murder.The first three thirds were pretty easy to see coming as most of it had already been alluded to in past episodes. I was starting to hate Annalise [Read more…]

Episode 10; Hello Raskolnikov

HTGAWM is back!!! This show is like my soap opera, guilty pleasure whereas Deadwood is my Shakespeare. Anyways I have to say this episode was kind of boring. Not much happened, and what did happen was pretty predictable. The best part is simply the title of the episode (I love Crime and Punishment references!) Well, and Viola Davis who as always delivers a solid performance, continuing to flesh out Annalise Keating. Although I’m still not convinced [Read more…]

Season 1 Review

I had extremely low expectations for this show when I first started watching it. I normally never watch network TV shows (other than NBC’s amazing Hannibal). I just feel like, why waste my time on something that can’t really push the envelope the way HBO and Showtime television can? [Read more…]
