Storyline

When you get into trouble there's only one person to call, Olivia Pope. Olivia is a professional 'fixer' who makes problems go away before anyone even knows they exist. For the moneyed, the powerful and even the President, Olivia is a legend in her field. Her spectacular success is mostly due to her unbreakable rule of always trust your gut. No matter how careful you are, when you do damage control for a living, you're bound to cause some damage to your own life. She and her crew eat, sleep, live and breathe crisis. Each week, as the team races against the clock to defuse intriguing new problems before they become full-blown disasters, they also have to deal with their own personal issues. They may call themselves 'gladiators in suits', but little by little, Olivia and her crew begin to reveal the chinks in their armor. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

While Shonda Rhimes has often been praised for the racial and gender diversity of her shows' casts, Scandal (2012) also provides diversity in its uncommon number of opportunities for both LGBT characters and actors. The show has gay characters being played by openly gay actors (for example, James Novak (played by Dan Bucatinsky)); gay characters played by straight actors (as in Cyrus Beene [played by Jeff Perry)); and - most unusually in an era in which gay actors' agents and managers still frequently advise them to stay in the closet or abandon any hope of being cast in straight roles - openly LGBT actors playing straight characters (such as Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi) and ex-spouses Diego "Huck" and Kim Munoz (Guillermo Díaz and Jasika Nicole)).

User Reviews

Brilliant show!
13 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had stopped watching prime time shows because of the lack of quality and diversity in casting. But WOW, Scandal has me hooked! This show is just incredible, brilliantly written, directed, and acting-- I have been on the edge of my seat from the opening scene until the credits. I hope that this show gains fans and ratings. I know I'm telling all of my friends to watch! The casting is rock solid. Casting Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope is inspired. Tony Goldwin as the POTUS is incredibly powerful. The chemistry between the two of them is amazingly hot. I'm eager to learn more of their back story as well as that of the other characters.
