Now started into its second season, Scandal will have a hard time keeping up with its former self (first season). Never the less, I will watch. It would appear that TV has returned from the dead.
The show is about a Washington Fixer with Whitehouse connections whom has an Ace up every sleeve and a lot of imagination. I won't ruin it for you. Start with season one so you'll have the back story. Worth your time.
Didn't know this show even existed until I happened upon it on Netflix. Now I am hooked! You really need to check it out from the begining, you need the history to make sense of what is going on. So check out the first season then enjoy the show!
When I first heard about this show I thought it would be boring. But I was very wrong, I LOVE this show !!!! The chracters, the actors,actresses, the set, the scenes, the fast talking, everything. This show is addictive and Season 2 is only getting intresting ! ; )
I love the program and the twists in each of the episodes. However, why must Olivia talk so fast? For my husband and I, it is a distraction. Olivia is a brilliant quick and fast thinking person, but it would be far more effective if she would just slow down. Everything doesn't need to said machine gun speed. This goes for rest of her associates as well
Best show I've ever seen without exception. Kerry Washington delivers every performance well past amazing.The rest of the cast is memorable to the fourth power as well. They carry off a show that just might indicate that there is a comeback possible for television.
Explosive, exciting, and addictive. This show definitely has the potential to be one of the greats if given a chance. The first episode may have given some viewers a " been there done that" feeling, but as the showed progressed on each week it quickly picked up momentum giving it a unique and fresh viewing experience. I am eagerly waiting for season 2 and I tip my hat to all of the actors and actresses on the show Bravo and keep up the great work!
This show is simply lame. I'd settle for Family Mathers instead anytime. The mediocre is because I don't want to hurt anyones feelings, maybe some dumb creature is actually wasting its time on this. I'm out.
Overall, I really enjoyed this first episode. And while Olivia Pope has this tough "BadA.." exterior, in the end, she's still human, still flawed, and still vulnerable. While we see her stare down the Russian Mafia, threaten DAs, and strongly suggest nice people should go to Minnesota, we see that her "gut instinct" fails, like everyone elses, when it comes to love. In this case, it's an old affair with the president. She's got an equally tough team around her, including a new girl who wonders if she can handle it. "We're all stray dogs," the techie tells her "and Olivia took you in, just accept it... and no tears." She helps one of her people propose, while reversing the damage she did by taking on the lady she threatened as a client.
This show has a lot of potential, more than many that are still on the air. I hope it makes it to a season 2, 3, and beyond because it deserves it. Moreso, and I'm going there, it's nice to see a black woman in a leading role in a drama and it's more than about time! And that shouldn't be a factor as to why anyone watches this show. Watch it because it's just that D***ED good!
This show jumped more sharks than Bernie Madoff. Just as you think it surely can't get any more ridiculous, well. So, she can bully Russian kidnappers out of $3m which cliched threats. Have the US president at her beck and call because; she's not only that good but, had an affair with him which entitles her to threaten and hit him. Drives a clearly fragile woman to attempt suicide because, "...My gut is never wrong..." WHOOPS. But don't worry viewers, it's not her gut's fault, it's the evil philandering Mr Presidents'. Whom, she now has in her sights. Sigh. Rendition her please.
Her 'gut' has so many lines in it that it's GOT to become a drinking game for college students!
Too many cliches. Too much of the, "I can read people by staring like a simpleton and relying on my gut" - until I can't and then it's the evildoers fault. Too much of the "I'm so young and yet so wise - until I'm not and that's because I'm so vulnerable, really. YUK!. This 'character' isn't complicated, she's just not as good as portrayed in hype by all around.
I actually was pretty entertained by the whole hour of this new series. And the 'Gladiators in Suit' speech was brilliant.
I wish they will tone down the Olivia Pope hype, and all that hackeneyed crap about being able to look folks in the eye and knowing if they are saying the truth. That was the only sour point in this. Not sure how they are going to make a series out of this cause they dont do any court and they are lawyers so have to stay within the law.
Actually this is a better version of 'House of Lies.
