How To Get Away With Murder S1E12: “When In Doubt, Shut Your Mouth”

Standard

By Lexie Schapitl

Before I dive into this week’s episode, I’d like to address the inconsistency of success in TV murders. (Warning: Spoilers to follow) What I mean by that is, how does the “Scandal” gang kill people and dispose of their bodies on the reg without raising the slightest suspicion, while police find Sam Keating’s body in approximately three days? Remember when Jake killed those reporters and then literally dug a random hole and buried them in the middle of the day? How did that work? Or what about this week’s bloodbath, complete with head sawing? The magic of B613? OK, Shonda. Don’t even get me started on the body melting of “Breaking Bad.”

How To Get Away With Murder S1E11: “He Is Not The Man We Thought He Was”

Standard

In this week’s episode of “HTGAWM”, the Keating students return for second semester, and through a series of flashbacks we see how winter break went for the whole gang (hint: not well). Annalise spent her time off in a Philadelphia hotel, hiding from her sister-in-law. She drinks, eats junk food, cries, and ignores calls from Nate for a few days before returning home to face Hannah.

How To Get Away With Murder S1E10: “Wouldn’t You Run?”

Standard

“How to Get Away With Murder” returned this week after a ten-week hiatus. Before the break, we saw our team of law students kill Sam Keating and dispose of the body in the show’s winter finale. We also discovered that Annalise was in on the plan and merely playing the grieving, betrayed wife, although only Wes knew that secret. (For more on what happened in that episode, check out my recap of the winter finale).

The Newsroom S3E5: “I’m Scared All The Time”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod

I never thought “The Newsroom” would be the kind of show to kill off its characters. Well, its major characters at least. There have been brushes with mortality on the show before, but the stakes for the ACN staff are rarely life and death. So when Charlie Skinner collapsed and banged his head on that desk, it came as a total shock. His death wasn’t quite as crushing as Beth’s on “The Walking Dead,” but it was pretty damn close.

The Newsroom S3E4: “Do We Ever Get To Win One?”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod

That was one emotionally exhausting hour of television. That ending was an emotional one-two punch of adorable and cripplingly sad. I’ve never been more invested in the Will and Mac relationship, and it’s about to be tested more than ever. Let’s just start from the beginning while I mentally recover.
