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

Scandal (witty and Smart)
1 April 2012 | by mrerecsSee all my reviews

Very hip modern show. Diaologue is very witty story lines very believe able. it's an interesting show that is worth watching! Awesome casting, actors fit their roles and they seem to have great chemistry. Episodes are fast pace and there are a lot of side stories. But that what I think makes the show. They will be one main story for and episode. then another smaller side story to change the pace. With there being larger sporadically place Story that connects the episodes and keeps the show moving toward a goal. This show is like Lost meets Law and Order with a House type wit and sensibility. I think its great how each episode wraps up but leaves you with a little something to look forward to until next week. If your looking for something fresh and interesting i would suggest this show!
