Series Review: How to Get Away With Murder


With breakneck pacing, brash sense of style and a bold Viola Davis, “How to Get Away with Murder” is a terrific TV show, that I’m pretty sure you would absolutely love. But if you’re looking for yet another procedural about lawyers that’s realistic and even researched then this show isn’t for you.  No one watches a show like “How to Get Away with Murder” for a lesson in law; they watch it for the interesting characters, suspenseful and amazing plot.

However if you want an over the top, melodramatic unpredictable show that’ll have you guessing, freaking out, enjoying it with every cliffhanger, then this show is for you. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Most crime shows are all about justice and stuff, which is great but it’s sometimes more fun to see the opposite side of things.

There are so many dynamic characters in the show. Viola Davis is just amazing; her acting is so mind blowing and on point. Her character is too strong, almost too strong to be on TV. Alfred Enoch, who plays one of the main characters in the show, is pretty amazing too. I’m just in love with Wes’s character. The other great thing about the show is the new cases they solve in every episode, they’re very engaging and enthralling. To top it all off, this is one of the few shows which has had such a strong female lead. One more great reason to love it!

It’s brilliantly directed and glamorously performed. This show comes adapting and talking with real problems and reality like sexuality, marriage problems and obviously murder. This show stays real and that’s what makes it so special.

This show had one of the best pilots ever and the season 2 premiere was probably THE BEST EVER EPISODE in the history of best episodes. It kicked off stupendously. 

So basically in this show, Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) is a law professor and unlike other law teachers she doesn’t teach how to study law; she teaches how to practise it. She chooses five best students from the class who get the privilege to work with her, or at least that’s what they think at first… Before all the drama and murders begin.

This show is so good that it will make you question how much you love scandals! If you’re interested in law and thriller shows and if you’re a Shonda Rhimes fan then this one is for you. So please if you usually spend your free time watching series and binge watching Netflix and if you’re not watching this, then let me tell you that you’re absolutely not making optimum use of your time!
