I came to this ABC show late and for one terrible reason and another that speaks to segmented audiences.
Scandal was on my radar a couple of months ago because I noticed that a number of my African American friends would light up Facebook right after the latest episode aired each week. I made a mental note to check it out since I didn’t watch during the first season.
The terrible reason is that the night of the Sandy Hook shooting, December 14, 2012, I just couldn’t bear to watch another minute of news coverage. Instead, I watched the five episodes of Scandal that were available on Primetime on Demand.
For all the reasons that Tanzina Vega points out, the show is intriguing.
For now, I have put it on my list of shows to DVR and have been watching new episodes since the holiday hiatus. In my viewing experience, some of the episodes are a lot better than others, but there is a lot of chemistry between Olivia and the President (which I gleaned mainly through the flashbacks from the first season). Oh, yeah.
Wonder what tonight’s episode will bring?
