Was it How to Get Away with Debuting Another Amazing Shondaland Series
? Or How to Get Away with Putting Another Boring New Show on Television
? We're going with the former. Viola Davis
for the win, people. There is a reason why this woman has been nominated twice for an Oscar. Her commanding performance as criminal law professor Annalise Keating in ABC's How to Get Away with Murder
strikes a perfect balance between the powerful, intelligent, and emotionally complex characteristics we love so much from our strong female TV leads (think Olivia Pope, Claire Underwood, and Carrie Mathison). We also appreciate the show's blend of mystery (about that body bag we see in the beginning...), intrigue (what will it take to join the firm?), and sexy (Hello, Matt McGorry
. Fancy seeing you here.).
But enough about what we think. How did the premiere resonate with you? Be sure to take our poll and sound off in the comments below!
