Dear ladies and gents,
so. Shonda Rhimes has got me again. With her How to Get Away with Murder. Yes, I know she is just the producer and Peter Nowalk is the dude behind the show, but this has Shonda’s fingers all. over. it.
It’s ridiculous. Absolutely bloody ridiculous. ALL the cliffhangers. I mean – come on! And ALL the flash forwards. And ALL the smart interns who will stop at nothing to win that damn trophy. And then there is Annalise Keating. Who is scarily brilliant at her job and never loses, but her personal life is a bit of a mess. What with the cheating husband and the now ex detective boyfriend and the crying and the pleading and whathaveyou. And then there are all these other characters and it’s kinda hard to keep track of them all… and… and…
The thing is all of Shonda’s shows start like that. Remember Grey’s back in the day. Remember Scandal.
In the beginning I’m all like this bastards and bishes all be crazy and what the what is going on. And then a couple of episodes in I realize I’m hooked and I can’t stop watching. *sigh*
See, Shonda knows. Shonda knows how to get us hooked. Resistance is futile.
