    Scandal: Soapier Than Expected

    Scandal is not the fake politics-and-fake-lawyers procedural I first expected it to be, and that's a good thing.

  • Episode Summary

    A young lawyer, Quinn Perkins, is offered a job in a crisis management firm that serves to make clients' problems go away. As Quinn finds out, the firm has several high profile clients and her first assignment involves an accusation that the President had an affair with an intern.

      Well I wasn't blown away by the first episode, but it also wasn't a bad one. It had some interesting moments and the storyline got spicy really afast, which was a nice thing.



      I'm not sure whether or not this show will be very interesting for a long period of tiem, but I'll definitely be enjoying it in the short term at least, and I think it has potnetial to grow! Episode 1 wasn't bad, and the signs are posiitive! :)moreless

      • Harrison: (To Quinn) I'm not a baby lawyer. I'm a Gladiator in a suit, because that's what you are when you work for Olivia Pope. You're a Gladiator in a suit. Do you wanna be a Gladiator?
        Quinn: Yes.
        Harrison: You have to say it.
        Quinn: I wanna be a Gladiator in a suit.

      • Olivia: (About Amanda Tanner) I'm sorry, I have to ask.
        Fitz: No. I never…I would never…no. You've known me for a long time. Longer than most. You know I didn't fall for some young girl. You know there's only one person I love.
        Cyrus: Mellie and Fitz are happy together, Liv. He'd have no reason to cheat.
        Olivia: I'll handle it. Consider it handled.
        Fitz: You should come back to the White House. We need you on our side.
        Olivia: I like working for myself. But I've never left your side.
