    Just finished season 1 of Scandal thought it was worth a watch to be fair and I enjoyed it as did the wife.
    It's centred around a fixer who digs around and gets high powered people out of the :censored:
    There are some good acting and some decent characters.
    It's been renewed for a seconds series,series 1 was about a Scandal involving the president and the white house a la lewinsky.
    Anyone else watch it if not its worth a watch IMO only 7 episodes long.

    I watched it too when it was on. Pretty good ... the end reveal wasn't too surprising re the 'whodunit', but great cliffhanger on the young female character ... what's going on there?

    Season 2 set up a bit slowly, some more back stories of the Characters something some shows lack but its been done very well IMO.
    Then it picks up and hits you out of nowhere, I really like it bit surprised there isn't more chatter about it.

    Anyone watching Season 4? Loved the previous 3 seasons, but the first couple from this season have been even more cartoonish than before. The cast seems to have lost its mojo too.

    Also, with Cyrus' new hair & Portia De Rossi's Ludmilla Drago from Rocky IV look, I initially thought they'd decided to reinvent the show & set it in the 80s. Sadly not. :D

    Sorry, the show has never been all that for me, i find very few of the characters likeable and it all feels a little to soap opera for me. Especially when held up against other political/legal/conspiracy shows. The only character i mildly enjoy is Huck.

    just got into this program as it's one of the box sets available on sky.

    finished the first season and now about 10 episodes into the second season. enjoying it so far. it is quite fast paced, which i enjoy. unlike breaking bad - 2 series of that and it felt like a complete chore (yet people keep telling me to persevere with it and it will come good in season 4 - i don't want to have to watch 4 seasons for it to "get good").

    anyway, will try and watch the rest of season 2 and then 3 before season 4 is out.

    3/4's of the way through season 2 now and getting good. i keep having to peel myself away from the tv as i just want to see what happens next.

    they keep leaving it on a cliff hanger and i have to start the next one to see what happens, and then before i know it i am 4 episodes in, lol.

    I get so frustrated watching this show. I love some episodes and hate others.

    I'm over half way through Season 3 and I get so irritated by the dialogue between Olivia and Fitz. One minute its all love you and the next it's shouty shouty.

    I've fast forwarded a few times whenever Olivia and Fitz are alone together because it doesn't add anything to the show.

    Also, what the hell is it with her funny sneer face. And the way she shouts when she has a little 'do as I say moment'. In fact, I'd be happy if she was written out and if Fitz wasn't a main character. He could just be referred to in the 3rd person all the time and never on screen. I'd be damn sure I wouldn't vote for him either.

    James, Cyrus husband is just wrong. I don't know what specifically but he just doesn't seem right as a character at all.

    But otherwise, it's great.

    haha, Liv's sneer face is funny. her lips sort of pull back up over her teeth and she looks like she has just been offended with something that smells horrible
