With Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and new show, How to Get Away With Murder Premiering Tonight, Buckle Up for an Exciting, Captivating, and Ridiculously Amazing Night of Television
Today, Shonda Rhimes will make history as the only executive producer and show creator of three shows showing back-to-back-to-back on ABC network. Her shows, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and new show debuting this fall, How to Get Away With Murder, starring the talented, academy award nominee, Viola Davis of the movie ‘Help’ will make its fall debut tonight.
All three shows promises to be extremely fun to watch and feature three very unique, fun, powerful, smart, and engaging female characters. I’m happy to see shows that truly depict the undeniable ability of women to lead a cast in a female role on TV (and could possibly could affect how we seeleads on the silver screen). In my opinion, I believe these shows are incredible and will definitely continue to make a huge impact in our social culture for many years to come.
“Every time Derek walks into the room, I think about his tongue…in my mouth. It’s making surgery very difficult.” – Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo)
Grey’s Anatomy touches on the human, every day level because albeit that it’s a medical drama, it also touches on the collaboration, support, journey of friendship, family, love, sadness brought on by grief. It is so amazing to watch and I have followed this show from the very beginning. I can’t wait to see the new season.
“It’s me! I’m the Scandal!” – Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington)
We all know, well, unless you have been under a rock for the past year or so, that Scandal is one of the biggest splash on television in recent television history. In my opinion it has been since Ally McBeal did a female character grab the attention of the audience in a way that is so captivating that, well, you yearn for more and more each week. This season, Scandal promises to be another exciting ride that will keep you at the edge of your seat all season long. Simply put, I cannot wait.
“You have redefined how we see women of color on television.” Annalise Keating (Viola Davis)
Tonight is the season premiere of How to Get Away With Murder. I have not formed an opinion yet, and will not until I see the first few episodes. I will say this: from the moment I saw the minute plus preview on Hulu.com, I was completely hooked and could hardly wait to see an entire episode, and subsequently an entire season. Now if the preview is any indication of what this show has to offer, I cannot wait to get completely hooked on the show. Viola Davis was amazing in the movie The Help, but this will be a make or break character for her. But I think she can deliver, she will.
Which show do you watch and/or are you looking forward to the most? Do you thing How to Get Away With Murder will be a hit or not?
Happy Fall TV season!
