Best new series: Scandal
Posted on

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to watch Scandal, I finally watched all seven episodes of Season 1 in two days. But now I’m so annoyed that seven episodes are so bitin. What is the English word for “bitin“?
How long do I have to wait for Season 2?
This political thriller takes place in Washington DC and revolves around Olivia Pope and her crisis management staff, as well as the White House and the people around the President.

I downloaded and watched all episodes not knowing what to expect and was surprised that the lead character is African-American actress, Kerry Washington. Never since Lisa Bonet (my peg in the ’80s) have I liked another African-American actress this much. I find her so pretty, though she is normy and not chica like Lisa Bonet was.

Olivia Pope’s job is to save high profile people from dangerous/embarrassing/scandalous situations like rape, kidnapping, divorce, adultery, even murder.
The lengths they do to make problems go away is very interesting to me, having been involved in some problems that could’ve been managed in the past. I sure could’ve used Olivia Pope. This is the reason I decided to get myself some protection.

To all those asking which show is worth watching now, I recommend this one. You will learn a lot about Washington, The White House, and how things work for people in power.

Henry Ian Cusick, the guy who plays Stephen, left-most person in the cast photo, just left the series. He is no longer part of the show. Watched 3 episodes, did not like Scandal at all.   I didn’t like the way Olivia Pope is portrayed. It’s like every scene, writers make sure I have to be reminded of how awesome she is. To me, she just scowls a lot.  This series is trying to do an Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing creator — fast talking characters, walk-the-talk trend on TV), but right away, sablay na. Coz to me, it’s bad writing… Read more »
