This week, it’s Scandal…
What is it?
It goes a bit like this: Olivia Pope, one time White House Communications Director, is a fixer, she makes problems go away and she’s better at it than anyone else. Each week she and her team are handed a different crisis to solve and make sure it doesn’t escalate to the wider public. And they do, each and every time.
Who’s in it?
Django Unchained star Kerry Washington leads the way as Olivia Pope, with the likes of Katie Lowes, Scott Foley, Darby Stanchfield and Guillermo Diaz in key supporting roles.
Why should I watch it?
It’s well-written, compelling and impossibly addictive. That enough for you?
Describe the show in three words…
Slick, racy and gripping.
The third season of Scandal is released on DVD on Monday (January 19th).
