I usually listen to TV while I work, but SCANDAL is a show that requires my full attention. The show juts back and forth in time to support the story and there are plenty of subplots and subtitle glances that give hints to relationships and honesty. I love a show that grabs me and makes me want to follow the story and ABCs SCANDAL does that.
SCANDAL: The Complete First Season – Video Clip “Presidential Favor”
This Smart and Fast-Paced Series is available now on DVD!
SCANDAL comes from the same minds that created “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” two shows which I’ve never enjoyed. Because of this, I almost skipped the show when in premiered in the fall because I believed it’d be the same unreal drama the other two are; but thankfully, I was wrong.
This new show revolves around the work and personal life of a professional crisis manager, Olivia Pope played by the brilliant Kerry Washington, and her dysfunctional by lovable staff. Once a presidential consultant, she’s opened up her own firm to help others; unfortunately, her past keeps getting in the way of her future and now she has to work to fix her own life.
There are clandestine romances, intrigue, and suspense plus a few giggles along the way and the pacing is fast and furious without being rushed. It’s a show I look forward to watching to see what happens next.
Kerry Washington (“Ray”, “The Last King of Scotland”), Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost”), Columbus Short (“You Got Served”), Guillermo Diaz (“Weeds”), Darby Stanchfield (“Mad Men”), Katie Lowes (“Super 8”), Tony Goldwyn (“Ghost”), and Jeff Perry (“Grey’s Anatomy”)
