ABC’s newest drama “How To Get Away With Murder” premiered tonight and there were plenty of intense and suspenseful moments. Set in Philadelphia, the show follows the unorthodox teaching methods of Professor Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) Criminal Law class, appropriately self-named “How To Get Away With Murder.” In just the premiere, there’s a whole case worked through and two murders, with plenty of scandalous drama in between. The show is a complex labyrinth with so many shocking twists one after another you might miss them if you blink. Scenes were intertwined with current time and flash forwards, showing what the final minute ultimately leads up to–a murder and trying to hide a body.
