Now THAT is how you do an episode of television, folks. Tonight was easily the best episode of Scandal all season and one of the best the show has ever had. I’ve said so many times that I prefer characterization over plot. Because when you develop characters the plot develops organically. We finally got some […]

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 […]

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, […]

On Thursday’s Scandal, Lisa Kudrow’s character Josie Marcus sits down with James (Dan Bucatinsky) and delivers a fantastic speech on sexism in politics. If only real politicians were as real as this fictional character. In the series, Marcus is running for president and her opponent Governor Reston tries to paint her as this weak woman, […]
