I've always liked the little speeches on Scandal, there's usually at least one in every episode. You know, the ones where a character goes off on some random soliloquy for a couple of minutes. My favorites were Jeff Perry's because they were so dramatic and borderline over the top. Bellamy Young's were a close second. But then came Joe Morton, Olivia's dad, whose speeches are COMPLETELY over the top. His acting is really good but also completely ridiculous, and now it seems everybody's taken a leaf out of his book. Especially Scott Foley.
I realize a lot of this comes down to the writing. So I guess I'm also contesting that. But try to watch a couple of episodes and look closely at 'the speeches'. They are incredibly, and annoyingly, similar.
Or is it just me?
