I don't know what it is. Most of the characters are flat and silly, and the law is laughable at best, but I get to the end of an episode, and I always gasp and start thinking about the next week.
Part of it is Viola Davis. She's spellbinding. I can't say I was surprised she had a thing with Famke Janssen. Annelise doesn't have boundaries. And man, she is messed up.
Wes annoys the crap out of me, but I want to know what the deal is with him and Annalise. She is way too invested in this boy.
And look how far Connor has come! I love Oliver, and the fact that Connor is stepping up makes me smile. He's my favorite of all the kids. Laurel is vapid, Michaela is a bitch, Wes is dumb, and Asher is a douche so much of the time it makes me forget why he's not a douche.
And yet, I love this damn show. I can't stop watching the thing.
