Critic Reviews for Pilot

Murder is that delicious, bittersweet final bite in ABC's three-course ShondaLand feast.

I like to think #HTGAWM is a juicy mix of Pretty Little Liars ("We have to hide this body, girls!") and Legally Blonde ("FOUR of you will come join me at my firm!") with just a little hint of A Few Good Men to keep things classy.

It's ambitious, for sure, to pack so much meat into a pilot. And part of what rescues How To Get Away With Murder from collapsing under the weight of its narrative is that it's fun to watch.

In other words, WTGAWM - Rated W...for WHAT?! Whoa! - is the most delicious thing to come along since the cronut (but with only one-third to one-half the calories, dependent on how much red wine you guzzled during Scandal.)

How To Get Away With Murder was a lot to digest, and I mean this in an absolutely positive way. That was one helluva fun pilot.

It's got all of the makings of a hit: compelling characters, an intriguing mystery, and immeasurable potential to grow as a series. At this point I can't wait to see how the rest of the season plays out.
