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

More Of The Same Old Rubbish
13 October 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

America can produce fantastic prime time TV like Deadwood, Damages, The Wire, Breaking Bad etc. but it also produces absolute trash like this. Take Breaking bad for example, an imaginative soundtrack, Scandal uses the same soundtrack I've heard a million times before, it's been used since the mid 90's, generic , annoying tripe. Why bother fleshing out the characters when you can go full head into people talking really fast which is supposed to mean they are cool, smart and worthy of our attention, throw some fast paced generic funk music over the top, it's easy.

Shallow, made for the masses who have no attention span.
