Since its debut on ABC in 2014, How to Get Away With Murder has been captivating audiences with its evocative storytelling and characters. Some viewers are intrigued by the drama, others by the precise writing. Some may even just be looking for an instructional video on how to get away with murder. If you’re in the latter group, don’t put up your hand – it’ll blow your cover.
The issue of today’s modern addiction to binge-watching a show in its entirety is that you’re sometimes left without any more episodes, and itching for more content. You have two choices: you can either find another program to satiate your desires, or rewatch the whole thing in French. We’ve got a list of a few substitutes for the first option. Should you opt for the latter, we say simply, je nes comprends pas.
6 Shows Like How to Get Away With Murder
If you’re in the market for a similar program to How to Get Away with Murder, it is definitely worth delving deeper into the catalog of Shonda Rhimes, the show’s producer, who was also responsible for such hits as Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. In Scandal, Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope, former White House staffer and head of the crisis management firm, Olivia Pope & Associates (you may also recognize her from her recent guest appearance).
With her previous experience working for the President, she keeps a finger on the pulse of D.C.’s elite, and has dirt on absolutely everyone, whether it’s related to an affair, murder or something else appropriately sumptuous. If you’re wary of too much political jargon and maneuvering cluttering things up, you can rest easy knowing that it is more of a backdrop than a major element. The primary focus of this show is on the characters, and the human drama that ensues. They’re smart, they’re sexy, they’re aspirational, they’re dangerous. Sound familiar? It should, it describes most of Rhimes’ products.
Now in its seventh season, the show took something of a tailspin in 2014, at least by the accounts of most fans. Despite this, it dominated the Nielsen ratings up until last year, and is well worth a watch if you’re keen on some snappy dialogue.
