It’s premiere week, so I’m here to give you “speedy reviews” of all the new ABC shows premiering this week. Next up, How To Get Away With Murder.
Starring: Viola Davis, Katie Findlay, Mayy McGorry, Liza Weil
Plot: Viola plays an incredibly powerful law professor who takes her students under her wing, and takes them on one hell of a ride. While being taught the ways of her land, her students end up in their own mess…that involves a dead body…
My Thoughts: Can you say Shonda Rhimes + Viola Davis = ratings juggernaut. Truly, this show had one of the best drama pilots I’ve ever seen. It was a better pilot than Scandal, and y’all know how THAT turned out. It is incredibly fast paced, but easy to comprehend. The acting is so fantastic, especially Viola. The time covered in the show is also done in a really fun way that makes you grab on and never let go. Let’s just admit it now, Shonda Rhimes has taken over the world, and we are all as a society okay with it.
Overall: 5 Viola Davis side eyes out of 5
How To Get Away With Murder premieres tonight at 10 pm (after Scandal) on ABC.
