    its the only shows on tv with black actors whose storyline isnt about its characters being black. especially scandal and htgawm. Race isnt a factor with rhimes the storyline is what matters.

    HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER simply slays, it’s twisted, sick, s***, not way tooo dramatic, and downright captivating. The finale had me on the edge of my seat, and I just stood up when Annalise said “don’t be” sitting on that chair. It’s just brilliant.
