I’ve long held the belief that anyone who signs a petition for a TV show has… too much time on their hands, to put it nicely. Anyone who signed the petition to get Jesse Williams fired from Grey’s is straight up DUMB (and probably/definitely racist). AS IF Shonda would be bothered by it. Full Story

Scandal Season 2 season finale Episode 21 recap Well, that was a curious season finale of this curious season. Yeah, by the way, if you didn’t know it, this was the season finale – considering the relative lack of body count and sexual combinations you’d hardly know it.  On some level, that’s ok with me. Full Story

Scandal Season 5 Episode 20 recap They couldn’t have known…but they could have guessed. Let’s say this episode was shot about five weeks ago. Written three weeks before that, and ‘broken’, or conceived of, three-plus weeks before that. So it’s been in the works for about 11 weeks, at least. Full Story

Scandal season 5 episode 19 recap May I raise a glass to Sally Langston as the most creative and surprisingly believable and effective use of a character who had in theory outlived her usefulness? I may, with an extra clink for the disdain with which she enunciates ‘feminist’. It’s notable because other shows might have written her off, and in fact this show has written off plenty of people who aren’t getting it done anymore – but Sally as super-skewed Greek chorus still seems to work, and she has so much fun with it! Watching her relish critiques of women she can’t bear and wishes she could be started the show on a high point. Full Story

Scandal Season 5 Episode 12 recap No, really. Stop sleeping with him then. One of the things that’s great about this show is that they’re very straightforward about sex-is-power, and this episode had that well-underlined. Everyone is sleeping with someone else for power, to get them where they need to go. Full Story
