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.

*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.

Steamy! A lot of political and romantic drama. Definitely the best in Shondaland! Great actors, too. You love even the characters you hate.

I love this show but am starting to think they are running away from the plot and losing the twists what happened to the gladiating and fixing....if it keeps going like this might get cancelled...

Started off as a regular 'case of the week' show, but became so much more. The intrigue is enough to keep me wanting more. Only wish they would drop the Fitz and Olivia love story, it's been dragged out for too long now
