Critic Reviews for Let's Get to Scooping

This show literally deals with life or death situations, which should make us feel something. I mean, an unexpected suicide happens in this episode and I hardly flinched.

This week, the case of the week actually dovetailed right back into the big picture, picking up the pace and amping up the tension.

For all its shocks, I think the episode marked a nice step forward with both of the major cases, plus it showed off the best case-of-the-week we've seen so far, perhaps because of its very direct implications for Connor.

The dialogue and plot are both mostly high camp, but when Miss Viola's in church, it becomes high drag; an operatic tour de force of acting, as well as a Lip Synch For Your Life, complete with wig-ripping.

On How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Episode 4, we got a little bit closer to finding out what is going on with #1 shadeball Sam and we got perhaps one of the rawest scenes I've seen on television lately.

Oct 14, 2015 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

In one of my favorite moments on an ABC drama to date (and one reason why I am giving this episode an overall positive review, despite its kinks) we see Viola Davis stripped of her power, confidence, and glamour.

I could watch Viola Davis sit at a mirror and say nothing for an hour.
