Scandal “Ride, Sally, Ride” Review – Patriotism!

sally langston scandal

Welcome back, show! It’s nice to see you again. Even when I’m not particularly paying attention Scandal somehow manages to draw me in. It’s incredibly exciting and sometimes I think that hides its weaknesses. 50% of Scandal is ridiculous, good, campy fun. The other 50% is dreck and annoying monologues that would really stand out […]

First of all, a HUGE thanks to the awesome Jessica for stepping up at the last minute last week. Due to the Texas ice storms I was unable to watch “YOLO,” but I’m all caught up and there’s so much to talk about. The Great Jeff Perry has been doing career best work for three […]

Scandal “YOLO” Review The term “yolo” has kind of ended, and yet Huck’s use of it in tonight’s episode of Scandal was nothing short of juicy perfection. What we got in this episode: reasons to remember why we fear the dentist, reasons to remember why Huck is a terrifying killer, and Sally giving a “you […]

Scandal “Vermont is for Lovers, Too” Review

Olivia on Scandal

Scandal is mostly okay with its cliffhangers. You just know an episode’s going to end on one, no matter how much story there is left to tell. Tonight’s cliffhanger was expected but still effective. It was telegraphed all night that Olivia’s mom would escape to see her daughter. Scandal doesn’t usually do anything this blatant, […]

This show. Scandal is back, y’all. And all I can say is it’s about damn time. Tonight’s episode was by far the best of the season, and for the first time all season I am very much ready for next Thursday. I have a lot of thoughts about “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie.” A lot. Mostly, […]


Scandal “More Cattle, Less Bull” Review – We’ve been Poped.

I haven’t really enjoyed this season of Scandal thus far. Last season they threw so much at us every episode, which made us a little blind to its weaknesses. This season they are doing a slow build and showing us just how Olivia became the Olivia we know. We are getting slower episodes which are […]

Scandal “Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington” Review – Drunk Mellie!

Huh. Well, wasn’t that a damn exciting episode? I’m very interested in Operation Remington which is why I didn’t care too much about the bomb plot. It seemed like such a one off, case of the week-type storyline, but as with everything with Scandal, we will probably definitely not be surprised to see this storyline […]

Scandal “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” Review – Welcome To Wonderland

| October 11, 2013 at 12:07 AM EDT

Tonight’s Scandal was all about the exposition and character development, something the show has never been too confident in before. And I loved it. Rhimes and co are finally delving into our characters’ lives and giving them actual history. Olivia had a life before Fitz and we finally got to see it! Like everything, let’s […]

So. That happened. Huh. Crazy, right? Sooooo much happened tonight. Like, a WHOLE BUNCH of nonsense. I’ll try to get through everything, but bare with me. I’m going to do things a little different tonight. That was a LOT of stuff to process in one hour.

Scandal Review “Any Questions” – Run and win, Fitz

| May 10, 2013 at 12:27 AM EDT
Olivia's wearing her white coat so she definitely serious.

Were you right? Did you correctly predict who the mole was? I was half right, and I’m so upset. With David helping Albatross we’ve lost the only pure character on the show. (Plus, Matt Letscher’s name popped up in the credits, so it wasn’t a total surprise that he would make an appearance.) But that’s […]
