Welcome to our newest method of reviewing/recapping season three of How to Get Away with Murder where I’ll be joined by film writer Alana Jane Chase in discussing (mainly reacting to) the latest episodes live. The discussion has been edited for (some) clarity.

Season three of How to Get Away with Murder is here and with it, a new model to write by on a week to week basis. Instead of writing individual reviews, myself and Alana (or others if she’s busy because I can’t monopolize everyone’s time all the time) are going to review by way of discussion, as live reactions might just be the best means of capturing the essence of what makes this show so fun to watch on a week to week basis.

The season premiere, “We’re Good People Now” is a fun, light on it’s feet and sun soaked episode that builds upon these characters and their dynamics. Season two became muddled in it’s back half-even for a show that loves to twist its storylines up until the answer is just as incomprehensible as the set up. Season three seems to be recapturing the spirit of season one where all the crazy is still present, just toned down enough and character focused so that by the time the big season reveal is rolled out, we’ll care.

Continue to page two to read the conversation Alana and I had live as the episode aired and trek through our exclamations of shock, my complete inability to accurately guess an upcoming twist and our unreliable focus as we are too often distracted by the gross amount of collective beauty the cast shares.

Because yes, How to Get Away with Murder is best watched as something to have fun with, and I intend to.
