Kerry Washington's SCANDAL!
You gotta love modern technology. We don't have cable but I get to watch with limited commercials on ABC.com.
What I love?
The storyline- Before watching, I heard Kerry Washington was having an affair with the President. I was immediately turned off. I was annoyed-a Black woman is leading a prime time show (that isn't the stereotypical reality show format) and then turn they around and discredit her morally.
I got over it and was immediately drawn in during the first episode. It wasn't some one night stand talk show mess-they genuinely love each other and the First Lady is fully aware of this fact. I laugh as I type this-I just made an extramarital affair look okay. lol Anyway, that is more of a sub-plot and each episode features Washington's real work-cleaning up the scandals of DC politicians, socialites, etc.
The clothes- I'm not a fashionista but I love how Washington's character is dressed for the show. Simple, elegant, classy :-)
Columbus Short- Sexy, intelligent *sigh*
The music- they play a lot of classic R&B and rock-Oh yeah!
Abby- She just says what the hell she wants and I live for that. lol
The chemistry- Strong cast...so many personalities and mystery surrounding each of them. I can't wait to see how Rhimes unfolds each character.
Did I say Columbus Short? :-)
I haven't watched Grey's Anatomy since they put George and Izzy together, and Private Practice was a snooze fest after season 1. Shonda Rhimes gets two thumbs way up for her latest effort.
