Anyone watching? I am a sucker for crime shows, and particularly criminal law stuff. I'm also, kind of oddly, a sucker for Shonda Rhimes, so this show is right up my alley.

Oh yes I am fully obsessed! It's so good/bad/awesome! Best is it's supposed to be my school which just makes all the incorrect stuff that much more hilarious. Like no one would stand up to answer questions. And no one would ever have first-year interns! I love it.

This show is so juicy and so factually inaccurate and I love it.

I was blown away by the episode where Viola Davis takes off her wig and all her makeup. I feel like that's going to be a big moment in TV history and I'm excited I was a part of it.

Oh yeah - that was amazing. Viola Davis is fascinating to watch.

And Randi, yeah - I love the thought that a hotshot attorney would be having 1Ls work cases.

I love how in this show, they arrest someone and three days later it's closing arguments in the jury trial. I guess a super-realistic episode, where one of the interns spends 30 minutes on hold waiting to speak to a court clerk to ask about available dates for a motion hearing only to be disconnected, wouldn't be as compelling to watch.

Although dick pics on a dead girl's phone, that's hella realistic.

I actually did like how they worked in an explanation of preliminary hearings into one episode. Assuming the law is the same in Pennsylvania as in California, it was dead on, and I got kind of a nerdy thrill out of that, because none of the clients I've worked with has seemed to understand just how common it is to lose a prelim.

I don't know anything about the law so inconsistencies don't bother me, but I was promised "Scandal-sized drama" and not a single person has forked the president.

But but but multiple people have forked the lead character! And there were unprecedented levels of man-on-man sexing (for network tv). That episode where the skeevy guy screwed the assistant for info? and after his IT guy? So crazy, loved it. (Except when the guy killed himself that was super sad and unnecessary.)

Seriously unprecedented! I did a George Takei when I saw it: "oh, my." I love Shonda Rhimes' twitter response to the people who said it was 'unnecessary': Bye, Felicia.

Ughhh I'm so badtripped about last night. I do not approve, Viola!!!!

Also not to be terrible, but BeardyMan needs to be hotter to play this character, unless they develop him more.

Is anyone still watching?? Why do they keep saying 'who killed sam'? Was it not Rebecca? I thought it was definitely her from the flashbacks! Oh man! Is it possible it was Viola??? And did he def kill Lila? This is crazy. (Fyi didn't watch last night's yet.)

I am! The most recent episode answers your question, so I'm not going to spoil it, but let me know when you've seen it, and we can take it apart.
