I've never properly watches any Shonda Rimes shows but this looks so awesome, easily the best trailer I've seen this TV season.

Loved the first episode. It killed it in the ratings, Viola was brilliant but the whole cast is great.

Some of the overtop acting from the students brings the show down, but overall I liked it and I'll keep watching.
:o :o :o at the last few minutes.

Hmmm nope. I expected much more from the creator of Scandal. The students are terrible and I couldn't believe in a single scene of the episode. The immunity idol was too damn much. :lol:

I'm not in love with the main character; he's a bit dull, but I pretty much love everyone else. The flash-forward scenes can get a bit confusing sometimes, but I'm interested in seeing how this puzzle pieces itself together.

The first two episodes were quality TV though.

I can't say I'm a Shonda show fan either but I'm really digging this so far.
Don't have an issue with any of the casting and I'm looking forward to some more mysteries exposed and solved.

Okay, the show is very good, but I cannot be the only one who's getting tired of: (a) how this blasted trophy keeps getting passed around and (b) these annoying flash-forwards. :x

I really love Connor though. He can be so vile sometimes, but he's so darn handsome. :oops:

I have to watch the show twice to get what's happened. Viola is awesome as Annalise. I loved her putting her side piece on the witness stand and asking him where he was lol. Wes is cool but he's too gullible. Rebecca is not worth the headache.

I like the show so far but i am also very frustrated by those flashbacks. I don't mind flashbacks generally but they show the exact same scenes again and again. Also, I only like Wes from the students.

BTW, i would like to see them represent a client that is actually guilty.

Yes, the flashbacks are very annoying and West can't act. :roll:
Overall, it's a good show. :wink:

I don't think it's that confusing.
I like Wes but I'm not sure what accent he's attempting.
Love the gay guy.

At first I didn't see the section this is in and immediately thought this must be one of those awkward question threads started by the one famous for those :lol: :lol: :lol:

Does it matter? They destroy the best shows with their subpar dubbing.

The show is OKAY.

As a Law student, there are some details that are a bit hard to swallow. Getting away with murder is pretty hard in that what ever you do, you will always leave a trace. The fact that she claims to be getting these criminals off murders whilst teaching a FRESHMAN COURSE... is a bit unrealistic. There is no way that will happen in real life... NO WAY!

No top tier lawyer will be seen breathing the same oxygen with a first years lol.

The show itself is a bit corny too actually and the crime stories are so cliche'. I think Shonda peaked with Scandal tbh.

Viola is a miss cast too... she doesn't work. She tries too hard to be authoritative.... if you want effortless authority refer to Meryl Streep in the Devil wear Prada.
