So - in brief - what's this show all about?
Viola Davis aka "The Snot Nosed Woman From 'Doubt" is a Philadelphia criminal law professor who gets herself and her students tangled up in a murder plot somehow. Here's a more detailed description from the program guide: "A ruthless defense attorney and no-nonsense law professor at a Philadelphia university selects a group of her best students to work at her firm in the premiere of this drama, but they soon find themselves entangled in a real-life murder conspiracy."
Why should I care?
Just click me. Seriously. The way she says the show's title is just......jesus. This better not suck. I'm WAY too hype from that one line in the trailer alone for this to suck.
I'm not doing a full review of the show. There are plenty of people scattered across the internet who are paid to do that. In fact, I will use the review of the person who's best at it as my source material for my #hottakes on what I just witnessed.
Why? Well, the first show has the great and powerful Viola Davis, and the second show (at least in the pilot) has a whole bunch of people who mainly remind you of all the ways in which they are not Viola Davis.
