Scandal > Scandal Season Premiere Review: Two Sides To Every Story > Comments Page 2
After watching this show last night with my mouth hanging open for the better part of an hour I'm still at HUH!! WOW!! OMG!! AWESOME!!
I really love this show, so happy it came back and it started as good as it ened! I think we are in for many more surprises this year. Last time we got so many hints that had a deeper meaning later on so I really paid attention to everything they said and there are tons of things where to turn on the story. If you only take the baby storyline and really listen, wow and so we every other character there... looking really forward to see more. IMHO at the moment the best show on TV.
Great premiere! I completely love Olivia Pope! Her character has a great mystery to it and hopefully it continues.
Incredible start to a new season. The Quinn reveal did not disappoint, and the last minute of this episode was definitely a shocker. I knew that Olivia had probably orchestrated Quinn's "interview" at Pope & Associates, but I never predicted that her involvement would go as far back as 2-3 years back and I certainly never would have guessed the extent of her involvement. The reason behind Olivia's involvement is probably going to be an even bigger mystery than Quinn's identity.
And I agree about Mellie. The first lady is incredible, as were the scenes between her and Fitz. I also loved the conversation near the end, between Olivia and David......actually there were a lot of terrific scenes in this episode!
Oh. Em. Gee. I literally didn't breathe for an hour! I have to bow down to Shonda Rhimes, this episode was tighter than a duck's ass, and the actors all did an amazing job, even chickenheaded Quinn Perkins..erm...Lindsey Dwyer.
Can I just say, I have a whole lot of love for Huck. If I was in trouble, I'd sure want him on my side. And I'm so glad they decided to give Bellamy Young a regular spot, Mellie is an absolute beast!
As for the last few minutes, woah! I totally never saw that coming at all. So much goodness, I just didn't want it to end.
Roll on next Thursday!
Love this show. The acting is over the top good. Olivia and Fitz, can you feel the love? Mellie, OMG what a monster, she is wonderful. We have three heavyweights going toe to toe. Great show, great writing, great intrigue, great characters. And just to be fair, everyone on this show is doing a excellent job. So Olivia knew Huck back then, looks like this was before his breakdown and he worked for the CIA then, so.........:-)
I didn't even blink. It was THAT good !
Scandal rules the school at the moment. Between The Good Wife and Revenge I didn't think I had room for more lawyers or guilty pleasure glam tv. But with Kerry Washington acting her ass off, Shonda writing the juicy storylines, mixing political intrigue with personal relationships, and a supporting cast that shines - this show truly is winning. Loved the season premiere, it answered a lot while setting us up for a helluva season.
Nothing guilty about this pleasure.
Saving my comments for roundtable tmw, but just had to say how much I love this friggin show!!!! Awesome episode, awesome review.
I am DEEPLY in love with this show. All the characters, like you said, are intriguing and well-developed. I love the new mysteries even more than the old ones and I'm just excited for the next episode!!!
I totally agree with your write-up of tonight's episode. This season looks to be even more scandalous that the last. My jaw dropped at least twice tonight (actually three times): Mellie's boldness at using America's Baby; Fitz's cutting remarks to her after the interview; and the final scene when I first saw Huck.
Also, I don't know why, but I think there is something up with Cyrus and Olivia. Between the bombshell last season at his ordering the hit of Amanda Tanner and Olivia's involvement with Quinn's reappearing (??) act, I feel like these two know each other better than the writer's have let on. I wonder if they will weave those two storylines together some way. I mean you just can't sweep the season 1 shocker under the rug.
So I loved the episode!! So glad Scandal is back!!!!
I, however, did call that Olivia was the one who brought her to D.C. but questioned that as soon as I saw Huck. Then when he got in the car, passenger side, I told myself that Olivia is about to come onto the scene.
There are so many questions but I dont mind bec I am loving the journey and story-telling.
