I just discovered the show "Scandal", which started last April and is slated to return Sept. 27th, and I've watched the entire season and I. am. hooked.
First of all, I have a girl-crush on Kerry Washington (she's gorgeous! Her skin! Jealous.), and she wears awesome outfits as Olivia Pope. Plus, the character is Bad. Ass. I like that. I wish I could be a bad ass sometimes, but I have too much empathy and I like to make people happy, not mad or sad, which Olivia Pope does on a regular basis.
I love the show "Bones", but I have to say that it may have jumped the shark this season. Thus, I am glad that "Scandal" has begun, since it actually may be better than "Bones". Each character is arrestingly complex, and every episode continues a storyline while offering a resolvable mystery to give some satisfaction by the end of the hour. It's great.
