Guilty pleasure. But I couldn't resist watching even if the probability of all these twists and turns in the lives of Annalise Keating and her band of murderous law students happening in real life is nearly impossible. But it is precisely the improbability of it all that makes for a compelling TV series. Add to that the cast of characters, each one equally warped in the head, whose lives are inevitably bound to each in their conspiracy to get away with the murder of, at last count, at least five people. And there is Viola Davis as Annalise who turns in a riveting performance this season.
Finally got to see 24: Redemption, the TV movie that serves as prologue to 24 Season 7, over the holiday break.
I didn't know there was this TV movie that came before the regular season. I only found out about it when C told me the back story involving Jonas Hodges (played by Jon Voight) and his "Blackwater"-type military organization. Apparently, Hodges had played puppet master in a rebellion in the fictitious African country of Sangala. (See summary of the TV movie here.)
I avidly followed 24 from Seasons 1-7, and am looking forward to watching more episodes this Season 8 -- set to premiere on Sunday, January 17.
