No, don’t worry, I don’t need putting on any watch lists! I’m talking today about the TV series.
I know a lot of you are expecting a book review around about now but truth be told – the book is long and I’m a slow reader and I still have another 300 pages to go – so I thought a Netflix review gives you enough of a cultured taste!
How To Get Away With Murder is probably one of my favourite series – it’s a bit like Line of Duty where a notebook to keep track would help, but unlike Line of Duty, it has a good ending!
The story starts in a law lecture which is to do with criminal law. But the Professor, Keating, dubs it how to get away with murder. The series focuses on her and a group of students she has chosen to be treated specially. There are a lot of twists and turns, a lot of deaths – some we know who does it at the time and others who we learn who does it.
What I like most about the series is its flash-forwards. We start a series with a clip of how it ends and we slowly start to learn the steps taken to reach this point. For those that love a brutal death, we have that. For those that love a love affair, we have that. For those that love a strong focus on morality, we have that. For those that love families are war, we have that. For those that love a political scandal, we have that.
You get the point. There’s a lot going on. There’s a lot of characters who appear briefly and then disappear before popping up again at a later date. This can make it a tad confusing – especially, if like me you have to wait for a new season. All seasons are now on Netflix so you shouldn’t have the same challenge!
Based in America, there is quite the focus on the lack of justice within the US Justice system – even a trip to the Supreme Court features. This is a fight that continues throughout the show given a central thread aside from murder.
I’d thoroughly recommend you put How To Get Away With Murder onto your watch list. Let me know what I should be adding to my watch list too!
