Scandal > Scandal Review: One Minute > Comments Page 2
Terrific episode! The revelations with the Veep's chief of staff and first lady weren't too difficult to spot (well, maybe the part about being the actual baby daddy) ... but the real shock was the Fitz/Olivia relationship. It wasn't scandalous and tawdry at all - it made me see both in a new light and I actually went from being somewhat repulsed that either would sink to a cliche campaign affair into cheering for both to make it as they watched that sunrise.
So glad this show is coming back for a second season! It's not "West Wing," but it's satisfying my political fix in an election year!
This is the BEST new show on this season. I hope it comes back in the fall. I feel the the president and Olivia altough I don't condone cheating. His wife is a Bitch. She would stop at nothing to get what she wanted, And loneliness is loneliness.
Tony Goldwyn is soooo hot! Makes me wish I was Olivia and I was on the receiving end of those loving and longing stares. Yay for season 2!
I hope Elijah's Hottie is right. This show deserves to come back. It got me to give up the mentalist. That's no mean feat. LOL.
I love this show! And this episode was the best by far. ABC had better bring it back. LOL. I hope it doesn't end the season with the president being impeached or resigning, that would mean it's not coming back, because Fitz would no longer have to give up being with Liv. Part of the shows appeal is the "star-crossed lovers" thing.
On another note... I'm curious about something. This is directed at people who have stated that they do not like Scandal. If you prefer other shows on other networks, and want to read about those other shows, why not use Google to find articles about those other preferred shows? Why come to this review, and even other episode reviews, for Scandal and b*tch about the shows you'd rather read about? No one has a gun to your head. It makes you seem irrational and none too bright.
If I don't like a show, I don't watch it. I certainly don't stalk websites that discuss said show to tell those who do enjoy it that they should like something els
DeAnn - I wouldn't have expected scissors either - but I would have expected to be shouted at or maybe punched. I've been chased before! I would also have had my recorder on to get any quotes that might have been shouted in the heat of the moment. In all, Gideon approached this guy as if they were buddies - not someone you were about to accuse of fathering the presidents lovers child!
This episode was great. I'm pleased to see it got renewed ...almost makes up for an unfortunate cancellation of another show I enjoyed. I KNEW the chief of staff guy Billy was shady. I've been saying it for weeks! Loved the reveal. I was wondering how they'd explore the origin of Olivia and the presidents relationship while still keeping them likeable and worthy if fan shipping. They did a brilliant job. The chemistry and tension was superb and that sec scene was hot! Hard nit to root for those two. I missed seeing the other team members more but what we saw was awesome..outside of Quinn. The reporter was ask idiot for confronting Billy like that and turning his back to him. Great review. I'd give the episode an A -
Week after week, I've been here telling you guys about Fitz and Olivia; it exploded tonight....Hot scene Shonda, I loved it! But the revelations too have me sick to my stomach! Is the godly VP trying to discredit the president with an affair, would it not look bad on the whole administration?
It's official!!! ABC renews Scandal for another season!
I disagree with the comment saying the First Lady isn't behind Amanda's murderer. In the show someone said the line "who at the WH would want this girl dead?" And the very next person you see in the scene change is the First Lady. Very telling IMO.
I'm still saying "HOLY SH*T!!!" in my head after last night's episode...
Everything about this was great. In the span of one episode, my entire thinking has changed about EVERYTHING. Though I still think the first lady is out of her mind, I no longer think that she had something to do with Amanda's murder. She wanted the white house more than Fitz. Lying about a miscarriage? Wow...
As for Olivia and Fitz, did they remind anyone else of McDreamy and Meredith? The elevator scene, the eyes...man Shonda really knows how to convey that feeling of passion and desire in her characters. Kerry Washington, as well as the President (don't know his real name) did an excellent job tonight. In my book, this show is already a legend. It better be renewed, like NOW.
Fudgefase, I'm a reporter too (and have been for 27 years) and I would have turned my back on that guy because I never would have believed he'd go after me with a scissors...I mean, really, WHO DOES THAT? I was shocked and I hope and pray that someone saves Gideon before he bleeds out, since that scissors was stuck into his neck in what looks like the jugular vein. If he was hit in a major vein, his chances of survival go down with every second (I would bet an average guy can bleed out in less than 5 minutes). BTW, I felt that Fitz' excuse for sleeping with Amanda was pathetic, too, though I found the chemistry between him and Olivia riveting! I am sad that next week is the season finale, but I can hardly wait anyway.
@ASfandancer: ummm, hello...Since you dislike Scandal and don't want to follow the us, the lowly masses, why don't you explore this website and maybe you'll stumble over this...
Watching the relationship between oh so gorgeous Olivia and Fitz blossom reminded me of the first woman I fell in love with and I presume it did that for many of us. The writing, acting, directing of this masterpiece blow me away and I just want more and more and more.
Now, I love where this is going. So many people are getting so close, yet we are so far from a resolution.
I'm a reporter. With the greatest of respect, if you're going to drop that kind of bomb on someone, you don't turn your back on them (chances are you'll get punched at the very least) and, as my old Ed used to say, you make sure there's nothing between you and the door! Brilliant episode. SAVE GIDEON!!!
Still have this episode in my head, especially the last scene with Fitz and Liv on the couch. When Fitz places his hands on Olivia's stomach... Is it possible that she was pregnant in the past with his child?
I could care less about Scandal, just another ho hum same old network show. Don't tell me that if I don't like it don't watch it because I gave it a try didn't like it so NO I do not watch it. The point of this comment is to ask why can't TV Fantic give those of us who watch and enjoy "Awake" which is something new, different, engrossing, and super well acted a review. I'm guessing because you probably don't watch it by go along with the joined at the hip majority who only watch what is popular.
INfidelity is bad. Massive slip-up there. I meant infidelity is bad. I'm down with fidelity. Promise.
Ok, I'm loving this show. Wasn't sure about a new Shonda Rhimes drama, but given that not a single person as yelled out "stat" or performed a thorachatomy, this has officially made a solid, permanent place on my dvr list. I'm bummed that the season finale is next week, and since I haven't heard yet, completely hopeful for its' return next season.
Kerry Washington is superb, and her team - so flawed and damaged, and yet they really are there for eachother. Can't wait to find out Quinn's damaged goods!
I loved last night's episode because it showed us that Fitz isn't a douche, and that there's real love there. Yes, fidelity is bad - but I can't help but want these two together, despite the impossibility of it.
Great reveals, and I didn't see it coming entirely. Though, I suspected someone from the VP camp as soon as Amanda was on the phone with someone two weeks ago who clearly wasn't the president. But wow!
I love Jeff Perry so much more as Cyrus than pathetic That
I can't stop watching this episode... It is the best one thus far... What can I say about the relationship between Olivia and the president was so poignant. i'm in awe of the chemistry between Washington and Goldwyn.
Okay, this was a difficult episode for me. First, the adultery, yeah, I know it happens, but I don't have to like it, and I have to say, the excuse that the president slept with Amanda because he was missing Olivia...COP OUT! I will admit, the history of Olivia and the president's relationship was good to learn, though I really liked learning that she and Cyrus were friends before this. Her helping the campaign had nothing to do with Fitz, it was for Cyrus. I loved that she told the president why he was lagging in the poles and getting beat.
Usually it takes a lot to surprise me, and since I was expecting the VP to be the blackmailer, when it turned out to be Billy, I was stunned. Added to that, he is a cold-blooded murderer, WOW. I was riveted. My hope is they find out it was Billy and then next season we have a different story arc. What will the VP say?
An absolutely amazing episode! It was told really well and the chemistry between Fitz and Olivia was just flawless. It's like you could feel the increasing amount of intensity between them every time they got closer to each other. And their one minute scene on the couch? I could rewatch that over and over again and still feel the love that the two obviously share. It was a really great way to show what these two people really mean for each other. I thought the season was going to be about Olivia defending Amanda against the President but after seeing the promo for the finale, it just shows how all of this ties up to Olivia protecting the man she loves. Absolutely flawless episode!
Well, that episode certainly floored me.
I mean I knew FLOTUS was ambitious but that was just scary. I mean I knew she was lying the moment she opened her mouth but damn.
Gideon, was a nuisance but I liked his rabid tenacity unfortunate he was quiet the moron, which was what likely got him killed.
Billy being the third player on the field. Didn't see that coming by any stretch.
Kerry has always been one of my favorite actresses and she has been doing a superb job on this show. Her ability to emote in a non-verbal manner...
This episode should get her an Emmy and a SAG! both she and Tony really nailed their romance.
I burst into laugh when i saw huck, seriously hilarious!
@Lynn, where did you read that? I've seen tons of articles talk about the likelihood of it returning, but there has not been an "official" word from ABC yet that it will. Until we get that, Scandal fans will be waiting.
