    It's lighter, smaller--West Condo!--but still a pleasure. [17 Dec 2012, p.37]

    Rhimes doesn't develop these affairs beyond their impact on the characters' careers, perhaps because the tone is supposed to be serious, not fun-flirty like Grey's. So it's hard to tell why these women sacrifice so much for the people they love.

    Impossible miss a single episode. The first part of the show was managed by Fitz's attack, but before then, there is an excellent show. "Happy Birrthday, Mr. President" make people watching the hit has already began. The episode "Truth of Consequences" brilliant, as well as "Nobody likes babies", "Snake in the garden", "Seven-Fifty-Two", excellent the end of the episode "Any Questions?" and the season finale the best episode yet. This season not only Kerry Washington keep doing brilliant job, but Bellamy Young, Perry, Darby, Katie Lowes, Bucatinsky, and for sure Diaz, stole the show.
    The cast, the writing, the directing, the photography, the acting, the costume desing, everything work it out. Well Done ABC's Scandal.
    This show deserve more nominations at the Globes, the TCAs, Critics Choice and Emmys.

    So Addicted and impossible stop to watch. Scandal season 2 finally show the real potential of the show, all the fast dialogues, conspiracy and romance are just amazing. Kerry Washington and the rest of the cast shine in just seven episodes. Collapse

    Well, hats off to Shonda Rhimes. Who would've thought of most of this season's scandalous cases? An attempt to assassinate the President of the United States is a big risk to take, but the show has done it quite perfectly. I think this is the first time in years a show is actually picking up in considerable improvement both critically and commercially in its subsequent season(s). Expand

    Season 2 of this show is positively off-the-chart, crazily heart-pounding! Unlike "Smash" and "Nashville" which go downhill as it goes on, this show never seems to run out of ideas and intriguing plots. Expand

    I have to admit I ignored this show when it started because I couldn't stand Greys Anatomy. Then one night I saw this excitement on twitter at about the 6 th episode of season 1 and I have hooked ever since its soapy, over the top and tv needed something like this. Expand

    This show is becoming better and better. It has it all: suspense, twists and turns, romance, plots. It is well written, well played and I find myself waiting for Thursday nights just to see what's next . Expand
