Love ABC's 'Scandal'
Y'all know how much I love actress Kerry Washington, and when I found out she was going to be starring in ABC's show Scandal, I made sure I was parked in front of the television at 9 PM for its Thursday night debut show.
I wasn't disappointed. Washington plays Olivia C. Pope, the most powerful woman in Washington DC you'd never heard of. The show also has as part of its cast Columbus Short of Stomp The Yard fame, who plays Harrison, one of the 'gladiators' working at Pope and Associates.
Washington's character is a former White House staffer who is now working for herself. Her specialty is fixing problems before they blow up into damaging scandals that threaten political careers or result in serious negative consequences for her clients
Scandal has become Must See TV for me, especially since the show is also produced by Shonda Rhimes, who also produces Grey's Anatomy. It's also unique to see a powerful, smart and sexy African-American female character in a drama and I definitely want to see this show hang around for more than just one season.
