Everyone has a secret... and Olivia Pope has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation's elite and keeping those secrets under wraps. Revered and feared at the same time, Olivia, a former communications director to the President of the United States, left the White House to open her own prominent crisis management firm. She is hoping to start a new chapter in her life‹both professionally and personally‹but she can't seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her dysfunctional staff, who specialize in fixing other people's lives, can't quite fix the ones closest at hand-their own. The creator and executive producers of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice delve into the behind-the-scenes machinations of a mesmerizing top crisis manager in ABC's highly anticipated new drama, Scandal. Olivia's accomplished staff, who would follow her anywhere and do whatever it takes to save someone's reputation, include Stephen Finch, who has dated his share of women but is trying to settle down and have a family; Harrison Wright, a slick litigator; Huck, hacker extraordinaire; investigator Abby Whelan, who has an enduring crush on Stephen; and Quinn Perkins, the new young woman in the office who is in awe of Olivia, but is initiated in a trial by fire on her very first day on the job. Olivia's former boss, President Fitzgerald Grant and his chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, are never far from her beat. Her clients aren't the only ones with secrets, though; surprisingly, she may need to exercise all her damage control skills on her own behalf.

Give it a shot, it'll be a pleasant and addicting surprise.
I've heard this show described as a sudsier, sexier West Wing, and I would have to agree with that. While Sorkin writes witty dialogue focussed around politics, Shonda Rhimes writes poignant dialogues and meaningful relationships. For me, the heart of this show is the heart-wrenchingly bittersweet forbidden love between Olivia and President Fitz. Ironically enough, TV romances usually bore me and have me rolling my eyes constantly but this one is so very different. Episode 6 of Season 1 and the phone conversation between them in episode 1 of Season 2 do an excellent job putting that love on display while showing enough restraint jso that it's not some cheesy, over-the-top affair, much of this is buoyed by the depth of the writing and an insane, I mean seriously ridiculous, amount of chemistry between Washington and Goldwyn.
Speaking of which, Kerry Washington just absolutely owns this role of Olivia Pope and her performance alone is worth watching this show for, as she is just as magnetic and compelling a lead as any. The supporting cast of actors and characters are strong, though some might suggest the former moreso than the latter. Jeff Perry is as under-rated an actor as any, and he, like Washington, just owns his role as the President's patriotic ( perhaps overly so) chief of Staff. Josh Malina, Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Columbus Short, Darby Stanchfield, Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes round out this solid cast of actors. Some say that the White House cast of characters are a more intriguing bunch that the Olivia Pope and Associates crew, but I disagree. The White House characters are certainly embroiled in a much darker, and dramatic storyline, but I think the Olivia Pope and Associates characters provide some really heart-touching and funny character moments,Abby's one liners and the interactions between Huck and Harrison come to mind. And there are twists and turns that will knock your socks off, the one at the end of episode 1 of this season will leave you breathless for the next episode, especially because it forces the audience to re-examine all that they know and believe about one particular character.
Overall, it's quite an intriguing show ( stick with it because it starts off slow in season 1 but things really start rolling by episode 3 and you'll be glad you stayed on for the ride) with occasionally interesting cases of the week but an even more audience engaging mystery at the cetnre of each season. It's also a rather darkly funny show with a tremendously compelling relationship at the centre of it.
Best Thriller on Television
Over the course of my time watching Scandal, it has evolved into my favourite show. It's The West Wing meets 24. It always keeps me on the edge of my seat and should be appreciated by all.
Keeps you on the edge of your seat...very well written,surprise after surprise
