BWW Recap:  Courtroom Shenanigans and Murderous Motives Fly in HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDERBWW Recap: Courtroom Shenanigans and Murderous Motives Fly in HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
by Jeffrey Walker - Nov 7, 2014

This week's episode of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER is “He Deserved to Die.” The “he” is clearly Sam Keating, the philandering husband of leading lady Annalise Keating, law professor and head of her own law firm. Viewers are being teased that we're getting close to finding out who actually knocked Sam off with the Lady Justice statuette. As for this week, end up learning more about how close Sam got to the murdered cheerleader Lila Stangard. We also see the courtroom games that place the prosecutor and defense attorneys in a cat and mouse match of wits and guile. We also may have heard someone admit to being Sam's killer – but the promotional videos keep teasing we are weeks away from knowing the truth. HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER knows how to build up our expectations and suspense quotient, that's for sure. (more...)

by Courtney Henley - Nov 25, 2014

It pains me to admit this, SLEEPY HOLLOW, but for a while this season, I felt like you were losing your momentum. Sure, your episodes were fine, but sometimes it seemed like you were reaching. They certainly weren't always the power-packed, dramatic tales from season one that we grew to know and love. Tonight's episode started in quite the same way. And then it made a complete 180 and suddenly, we were back to the good ol' days, fighting Moloch and all his henchmen like it's our job! Just in time, too, since Moloch is growing stronger and the impending apocalypse could happen, like, any second now. (more...)
