Well, I appreciate the advice, even if it was offered in a borderline passive-aggressive way, but since you asked..... I was hesitant to watch because every show I've seen with Terence Howard has him acting like a ginormous (Grade A Christmas) ham and I didn't think this would be any different, particularly with him as the lead character. I was pleasantly surprised after watching this show. As for understanding the premise and backstory, I have been reading reviews and what my other friends say about the show. If I have time, I'll binge watch the first season.

I agree. It's starting to teeter on the brink of prime-time soap with rekindled romances and illegitimate children in need of a transplant. As for last night's ep, what a gyp. If this is supposed to,hook us for the rest of the season, it's a pretty mediocre way to do it,
I had that feeling during Season 1. The fact that he somehow ended up getting into the law school from the waiting list at the last minute seems a little TOO coincidental for me. Since Annalise is a celebrity instructor at the university, I wouldn't be surprised if she tracked Wes down and used her celebrity status to get him enrolled. Then he "just happens" to be selected as one of the Keating Five and when he demurs, she makes him rethink his decision. She's keeping an eye on him for some reason. OhmiGOD......the things that pop into your head at the darnedest times..... Remember last season when Cecily Tyson guest-starred as Annalise's mother? We learned that a male relative molested Annalise and her mother burned the guy's house down while he slept. What if Annalise got pregnant by him....and Wes is the child? I'm not sure that the characters' ages are quite right. If we assume Wes is in his early 20s, typical for a first-year law student, and assume Annalise is close to Davis' age(50), then Annalise would have been pregnant in her 20s, but Annalise could have been away at school by then. If Annalise got pregnant in her teens, then Annalise is in her 30s, which, frankly, I don't believe (again, Davis is 50--playing someone 20 years younger isn't plausible). If Annalise got pregnant in her teens and is now in her 40s, then Wes is close to 30, which doesn't seem quite right either. As intriguing as it would be, it's hard to make it fit age-wise.

"Is Annalise ever going to reveal Rebecca's death and Bonnie's hand in it? I'm guessing no, if only to protect herself and her students. " But won't the body be found? They burnt Sam's body and still identified him. I'm not sure what Frank did with that suitcase, but if he threw it in a body of water somewhere, surely some fisherman might accidentally hook it.
I didn't realize it was Wes either--I thought it might have been the adopted son. I don't think Wes shot Annalise--I think he got away to get help. The flash-forward only 2 months (8 weeks) makes me wonder if we're in for a split season again. Catching us up week by week brings us only to around Thanksgiving. Hey I have a question: why is Asher always on the outside? I can't help but think there's a twist coming with his name on it.
"I don't get why Palmer can't take over after Ducky. After all he was acting M.E. when Ducky had his heart attack." My guess is that it was fine as a temporary measure since Ducky was expected to recover. However, the position probably calls for someone who's an MD, and to the best of my knowledge, Palmer isn't one.
I didn't watch last season so I thought I'd give this a try and see what the hype was about. It was entertaining enough with all the plot twists, but I wasn't overwhelmed. I'll watch a few more episodes and see.
I never saw the film, but always meant to so I was intrigued about its being adapted for television. I enjoyed the episode although I did find it a bit "gabby", particularly during the flashback of the first 20 minutes or so. I was stoked to see Hill Harper (from CSI: NY) return to television. Hopefully, he'll have a bigger role in future episodes. They got a few minor things wrong (just stuff I noticed given my own experience), but they didn't detract from the story at all. I'll certainly be watching some more.
I think Bradley Cooper will be making additional appearances because he's Exec Producer. As for the "drugs are cool" message you feel is being sent, consider the down side: its effect engenders competition that, taken to extremes, can lead to homicide, akin to dealers protecting their turf.
I like the changes in the team brought about by the addition of Plame and Sonja. I think they're gonna be good contributions, and foils, to/for the others on team. I can't help but notice that the writers seem to have introduced, or at least hinted at. some new backstory arcs without offering resolution, or at least some continuity, to the current arcs. What happened to the storm of terror that ended last season's final episode? Where's Sasha and is she indeed sleeping with Weber's character, or is it someone else? Now we have a separatist movement that may or may not be dissolved, a price on Pride's head, and a mystery character photoshopping Brody into pics of her late twin sister's activities. It all seems like too much to take in and keep track of throughout the season.
