“I am watching Scandal”

I watched Scandal, the newest entry from Shonda Rimes, the mother of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. This show takes place in Washington, DC as big an arena and theater as any operating room could be.
The protagonist is Olivia Pope, who at times reminds me of an odd cross of Miss Kitty and Bette Davis’ character from the movie, A Marked Woman. Both women know all the angles, they’ve heard it all before and they are the person that people go to under the cover of night to get only the help that they can deliver.
Shonda Rimes loves presenting people whose tagline should basically be “It’s complicated.” Olivia Pope is no exception. She’s smart and she knows it. She suffers no fools and is exceptionally good at what she does, which is to get people out of the jams they fnd themselves in. Life is good except there’s that nagging residual affair with the President of the United States.
