How to Get Away with Murder started airing on September 25, 2014, created by Peter Nowalk and produced by Shonda Rhimes. It is starring the award-winning Viola Davis, Billy Brown, Alfred Enoch, Jack Falahee, Katie Findlay, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Karla Souza, Charliie Weber, and Liza Weil. It is a story of five law students (Jack Falahee, Alfred Enoch, Aja Naomi King, Karla Souza, and Matt McGorry) taking Criminal Law 100, a.k.a. How to Get Away with Murder, under Viola Davis when they unintentionally murdered her husband, Tom Verica.

Synopsis: “Annalise Keating (Oscar-nominated,Tony-winning actress Viola Davis) is a brilliant, charismatic and seductive professor of defense law, who teaches a class called How to Get Away With Murder. Annalise, also a criminal defense attorney, selects a group of students — the best and the brightest — to assist with cases at her firm alongside her employees, the trustworthy and discreet Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber) and Bonnie Winterbottom (“Gilmore Girls” alum Liza Weil), an associate attorney. Mysteries arise that test everyone’s limits and reveal dark truths.” (Google)

It was the very first time I got interested in a crime and mystery kind of tv series, because I usually watch sit-coms. Htgawm caught my attention because I’m taking one of the best pre-law courses in our university, although, I have no plans of going to law school after undergrad. I gave it a shot, watched the pilot episode, and I was surprised that I was actually willing to wait for the next ones. It is very intriguing, from the title itself, but it is also as scary. It is the kind of scary that will make you watch it more. It may be a little complicated, but you will easily get the hang of the whole story. You will make assumptions, solutions & answers to what happened. You will feel like a lawyer, or a law student at least, every time. Every episode shows different cases that the Keating Five helps to solve and win. Each episode also shows clues as to how they will be able to get away with murder. The season finale, on the other hand, will have you confused in all the possible ways, you hope they air its second season already!

This show is highly recommended to pre-law and law students, crime and mystery fans, and anyone who’s in need to get away with murder. You will learn a lot from this, not only regarding the law, but also about relationships from the main characters.
