Scandal Reviews & Ratings

Thursdays, 9:00 PM ET on ABC

60 minutes

A former media relations consultant to the President, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) dedicates her life to protecting and defending the public images of our nation’s elite. After leaving the White House, the power consultant opened her own firm, hoping to start a new chapter — both professionally and personally — but she can’t seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her staff, who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, can’t quite fix the ones closest at hand — their own.

I start watching this show because of Kerry Washington. She is crazy beautifull and talented. The show has great storylines and the manupalitive political issues in the White House are intresting.

But it does not pulls me totally in the show. It is a bit off and on I think. And now after 4 seasons and going in to the fifth it has to step up to get to a higher level.

Shonda has done it again...she has turned SCANDAL into a HOW TO MANUAL for a husband to take the role of a politician's wife. Fitz is actually supporting Mellie in totally insightful ways that make me love him again (after a long period of disgust)

This is one of the best of Shondaland. Loosely based on the real life crisis manager Judy Smith. I recommend her book "Good Self, Bad Self".

Kerry Washington is a brilliant actress who finally got a role that highlights her skills. It is a dynamic character with great outfits. Though I often want to smack some sense into her I always admire the brains and skills she uses to get out of some intensely difficult situations.

The team is complicated and twisted. The cast brings together some of the best TV actors including many of the Shondaland favorites. It is suspenseful and dark.

This is a fast paced show. Not something you want to watch just to relax.

this is one of my favorite shows, it has intrigue, drama and great characters. Tears have been shed and laughing from the top of my lungs - sometimes both, all though this show definitely has it's serious side. I'd like to thank Shonda Rhimes, for giving "birth" to this show!

Season one and two were exciting however in season 3 and now 4 the writers and director are putting the characters is this lengthy dialogue speeches to one another which has become very boring. You get to dislike most every character and that's not good for viewing. Sorry, I've stopped track this program.

*THERE MAY BE SPOILERS SO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK*

I honestly became very quickly obsessed with this show because I have a strong love for strong, independent female characters. As the show went on though it almost feels like Olivia is becoming more and more indecisive. She used to stand by her convictions and now she does not. The season 5 mid-season finale for me solidified that. She fought so hard to get where Fitz and her were and just decided to throw it away as if it was nothing. Yes, she had to give things up but so did he, relationships are hard and about compromise but she seems to think that she's allowed to have it all without it ever being hard for her. Also, I understand that this may be controversial for some people but I think that she did the wrong thing by getting the abortion without at least telling Fitz what was going on. Like it or not, it was his child too and he should have been made aware of its existence at the very least. I fully support people who decide that abortions are the way to go for them, but that doesn't mean that the person sharing this responsibility with you in a relationship between two consenting adults should not be told. I just think that she needs to check herself and realize that she probably should talk to someone about her inability to commit because like it or not he was perfect for her and she threw it back into his face. As much as I loved her when she wore the actual white hat, now, she's not wearing it and I think is well on her way to wearing the hat her father does.

Anyways, that was my little rant. I still think this show is amazing because honestly anything that can make me this angry needs to be watched. The point of media and tv shows in my opinion is to get you attached and this one definetly, without a doubt did that to me. That being said I do think that this show is slowly coming to an end and I would not be surprised if this is the last season.

great drama! its not a show you watch for the realism, but its another classic by Shonda Rhimes. If you watch her other shows Grey's anatomy or HTGAWM then you know exactly what you are getting when u jump into the show (meaning you know the quality of story you will get) - i clarify this because like her other shows, PLOT wise you can never predict the twists and turns she brings to her shows.... makes it so much more gripping from week to week.
