Her white dress didn’t suck either. But it was what she had to say, what she continues to say, that is the only conversation. I love how it started.

It was Retta who caught it. Isn’t it always Retta who catches everything?  So Viola Davis is wrapping up an interview with NBC and looking gorgeous, and so much looser and less uptight than Annalise Keating. So she’s talking with Natalie Morales who says “Okay thank you so much Shond- Thank you so much, Viola Davis”. Full Story

HTGAWM Season 1 Episode 2 recap So far, the most unbelievable part of the whole show is that all of this is happening in Keating’s living room, like she doesn’t have the money and resources for an absolutely stunning suite of offices.

Season 1 Episode 1 recap. PORN PORN LAW ACADEMIA PORN. It is not for nothing that we fantasize about New England and its Ivy-covered halls.    There is some serious academic fantasizing going on here, not least because we all think if we just could have applied ourselves, we’d be intimidating law professors in an excellent jacket. Full Story

Viola Davis: Best Oscar First Arrival
