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)).

Worst Show On TV
9 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've come to realize I love great television shows that make sense and don't insult our intelligence. Scandal doesn't make sense and insults our intelligence at just about every scene. Shows like Boardwalk Empire or even House of Cards are great because it makes you think and wonder how things like this happen in our world. Scandal is just ridiculous. I thought House of cards was pushing it with season 2 but Scandal starts of in La La Land where the US President is a real chump to a woman played by Kerry Washington. OK fine, but it seems Kerry Washington can take down any government of the world? And lets not talk about the scenes which only work assuming the passer byes are obviously deaf and dumb. This show is laughable at best. Scandal wants you to assume that Kerry's firm is just about the most powerful entity in the world. Hell, why doesn't she take down ISIS if her resources are as powerful as they make them seem. Shonda's shows really are just terrible (how to get away with murder was a huge let down) and sadly there is an audience but gladly its not me!
