    I love Scandal. This drama is incredible. It’s not too often in today’s tv world when a show is this good. Every facet of the show seems to blend together like a model of perfection: the chemistry between the character is amazing and so realistic; the continuity of the storyline is superb. You hear something in one episode and 3 episodes later, those same words are brought to life. I can hardly wait for Thursday night to see what’s happening next.

    I love SCANDAL. I have friends that LOVE this show. It is is fast pace moving, fast pace speaking and very very much a welcomed change to TV. This type of drama has everything and it does not leave much to imagination except as to what the President and Olivia are going to do? Whether or not the President’s wife will prevail for a while or will she again put her foot again in her mouth? When will the President know the true about the election and how it came about? I can say the Supreme Court Justice did a lot to hurt so many people while she was lying up in that casket! I am ADDICTED to this show and if I have to be late or at the meeting, I make sure that I record it so that I will not miss it. THANK YOU ABC, NO FINALE for this SHOW, it is just too good! KEEP IT GOING; DON’T be like the SOPRANOS and cut us off without asking the community their opinions. THIS IS IMPORTANT INPUT for ALL SHOWS WE LOVE IT!!!!

    Please keep Scandal going. It’s the best series drama on tv. I have hipped so many friends to this show thru Netflix and ABC.com to play catch up on the drama and every one of them have been hooked after they watch the first episode of season 1. They don’t stop watching until they have caught up to the latest episode this year. So I think the problem is advertisement (viewers don’t know what they are missing). We Love this Show…we’re addicted.
