My thoughts on “Scandal” (so far).

So. I was questioned by a loyal reader as to why this hasn’t happened yet.  It was a simple, “So are we not doing reviews on “Scandal” or…” that was laced with a demand.  So here we are.

The reason I haven’t done them is because I have class on Thursdays, and since Shonda decided to give us THREE amazing shows back to back to back, I barely get the chance to watch Scandal until the weekend, if not a week later.  Seemed like it wasn’t something y’all wanted that much later. BUUUUUT I see I was wrong.

Here we go.

Four episodes have gone by (Randy, Red, Superfreak, and Julia (1), The State of the Union (2), Inside The Bubble (3) and Like Father, Like Daughter (4)). These are my general thoughts thus far.


The only thing I could focus on during the first show is the fact that EVERYBODY’S hair (except for Liv’s) was a HOT MESS. Abby, Cyrus, Fitz…it was ATROCIOUS! MY WORD.  Watching the fourth episode (last night!) all of this got better. Amen.

Speaking of hair, I know y’all saw that scene where Liv woke up from her sleep with her hair all in tact and not wrapped? Yeah. Fellas, don’t be fooled. Black women don’t sleep like that, okay?

liv and jake

That beach chair scene (yes, from episode 1 LOL)?? It had me clutch my pearls and cheer for sheer joy at the same dayum time. Here. For. It. Yes.

Now. By episode two (I think), Jake flipped the script on Liv.  I saw some people say he was being mean. And NOPE. He was being REAL. He still wanted her sex, but was emotionally detaching from her. And can you blame him? The man knows that all Fitz has to do is put up a distress signal and BOOM. She’s gonna be right on back to whoring it up.

So yeah. I don’t blame him.

The dinner with Daddy Pope tho? Whew. Bold.

One more thing.

“I’m the one you like to ride….” <— I don’t know why Liv doesn’t love this man or how he was able to get even one more syllable out of his mouth after this cuz….

liv and fitz

So I’ve said that I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO tired of the back and fourth. But in last week’s episode when Fitz asked her if he had failed as a man and was trying to undress her? Something inside of me was just like YASSSSSSSSSSS!!!! I couldn’t help myself.

I’m just not sure where else this could go. But now since Liv is about to find out Fitz has Jake…whew.


This child is getting on  my very last nerve. I mean really. You aren’t Liv.  Nor will you ever be.  You’re mad. Ok. But you gotta get over it, ma’am. You gotta let that hurt go. It’s making you look real silly. Like REALLY silly. Stop it. Even Cyrus had to read her. SMH

HOWEVER.  Her little talk with Mellie was THE BUSINESS.  I think that was one of my favorite parts of the show. I also liked how she tried to save Mellie from continuing to embarrass herself in that meeting. So yeah. I guess Abby has done some good.

Ummmm was anybody other than myself thinking that Fitz was about to try and sleep with Abby during a certain scene???

and speaking of mellie…



Like…I get it. What you’ve been through is a TRAGEDY. But what I NEEEEEEEED you to do is to get some intense therapy and to be able to FUNCTION.

Oh. But when she and Fitz were going back and fourth about their daughter? And Fitz read her for FILTH!?!?  My goodness. I was like DAYUM.

And he was right. He lost a child too, and had to deal with that, still be the president, AND deal with a wife who is falling apart daily.

Buuuuuuuuuut then Mellie hit him with, “Well I guess she takes after her daddy.” <— OOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m just wondering how long we’re gonna have to deal with Smelly Mellie.  *shrugs*

the devil

Cause that’s what he is.


I’m over him being alive and well. Like, how does he possibly manipulate EVERYBODY? How can this be?

And how is it possible for Fitz to be so stupid to get him to get the “truth” out of Tom? Like…what is going on?

But I guess the devil IS a master manipulator, huh?


Cyrus. Cyrus. Cyrus.

Silly silly silly delusional man.

I just REALLY hope that he knows what’s going on and has a trick (pun intended) up his sleeve. Cause….yeah.


Looks like he’s become what he’s despised in the past, huh? He’s not ready for this life, tho.


Still want her dead. She came in and was like, “nobody missed me?” MA’AM. NO. Nobody missed yo flip flopping azz. DEAL WITH IT.

But I guess she’s being of some use so I’m not opposed to her still having breath for now. Ugh.


We’re going to see him again.

This is my hunch.

I could me wrong.

I have zero supporting information.

But yes. I think he (Columbus Short) will be back.

*So. I’m sure I’ve missed a lot in here, but I wasn’t about to go through (almost) 4 hours worth of detailed info. LOL  Like I said, these are my general feelings so far. I’m just glad that I’m all caught up (for now)!
