Annalise Keating (Oscar-nominated,Tony-winning actress Viola Davis) is a brilliant, charismatic and seductive professor of defence law, who teaches a class called How to Get Away With Murder.
Annalise, also a criminal defence 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.
I do not think any show on tv has had my mouth drop so many times or have me utter the words 'wow I did not see that coming'. You can not guess what will happen next because it is just so unexpected. This programme has you always wanting more and leaves you desperately trying to find the answers. Although, mind blowing at times it still has it down stages and can be a tad boring but then something happens and you are left thinking what the?
The casting is fantastic and can not be faulted. Such a simple idea. Lawyer teaches class about the law and in the process her world implodes. Viola is an amazing actress. One second she is tough and fearless the next she is a crying mess. She definitely holds nothing back and you never know what she is truely capable of. If I was accused of murder this is the one lawyer I would want in my corner - Boston Legal holds nothing in comparisson.
Even the students are fascinating to watch as they all self implode and continually look over their shoulders. They all have their masks continually on and slowly they are dropping them and we find out what truely makes them tick. This is definitely a series I am dying for to return.
