Hey Shonda... You got me! I tried so hard to ignore all the hoopla about your new show. Grey's Anatomy was always enough. But noooo... you just HAD to let your creative writing mind set sail and create a new visual addiction. How scandalous of you!
I watched my first full episode of Scandal last week. The return episode. Only because everyone was wondering if the President was still alive, and I really did think they were talking about President Obama... because of the tax increase. No? Oh. Well.
Anyway, so I watched the return episode of Scandal on Thursday and then my besties and I got together on Saturday to play catch up. I was obviously missing out on something deep, and I wanted to dive in. We started watching season one and I was immediately confused. After watching the return episode, I picked the plot apart right way. I even participated in the #FreeHuck trend. I didn't know who Huck was, but Huck was freed and all was well apparently.
I avoided the Scandal on purpose because I'm trying not to watch so much TV. I got too much writing to do and "ain't nobody got time for that", but my besties coerced me. Peer pressure like a mug. I'll actually be watching tonight with my boy bestie, Twonny.
"Rule #1: No talking during Scandal," he told me.
He's controlling, but I'm a boss chick like Olivia Pope.
Furthermore, I don't know what all the controversy about her having an affair with the President is about. Yes, he's white. Yes, he's married. However, I thought people would be even more upset with Shonda for electing Fitz as President when our real President is Black. IJS.
People just love creating an unnecessary Scandal I guess. Shonda is definitely on her #WriterGrind and I ain't no hater.
I still have a few episodes to watch before I really know what I've been missing, but I'll enjoy tonight's episode I'm sure... and I'll ask lots of questions (during the commercial breaks of course).
