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

Exciting fun!
4 October 2014 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

What season is this? Fourth? Well, 3 years ago I didn't bother watching "Scandal". I read a couple of reviews like "I watch it and still haven't figured out what job Olivia Pope does" that make me stay away.

Someday I had in my disposal the first season and some of the episodes of the 2nd and I decided to give it a shot!

This is a really exciting series. It's build that way it's obvious. Almost every episode is full of unexpected events. You think something is like this and the next moment it is turn out to be the opposite or something completely different. Also almost every episode has a cliffhanger to hook you for next week. Many elements come straight from soap operas. It is a pop series no doubt about that in a good way.

The casting is also great. Everyone fits their roles perfectly. And are pretty good actors to deliver big speeches and loud arguments.

Especially if you like series about the white house this one is not to be missed.
