    Love this show! I hate watching series nowadays because they get cancelled too quickly and viewers are left hanging. My daughters insisted I watch this, and against my better judgement I became a fan. I love my Thursday nights now and can’t wait for each episode. I usually can figure out plots, but this has been an emotional rollercoaster, love the twists and turns; love the vulnerability of the characters, absolutely love the cliff hangers! One of the best shows ever produced.

    I absolutely love this show…my friends and I discuss and analyze every detail…I love the way the writers put the ending out there and then tell you how they got there–telling the back story. Brilliant writing!!!

    I have to watch each episode several times to catch everything! I LOVE the way the writer puts what happened out there…then tells you how they got to that point. Brilliant writing!!!!

    Love Scandals. It’s a show to watch and try to figure out some of the twists and turns.
    The tormented love of Olivia and the President is a good watch. The assistant to the President is a real stinker. Great Prince material, that one.

    Keep the show.

    Scandal is the best drama on television today. Everyone I know watches this show and is obsessed with it. I don’t understand why there isn’t much advertising for it. I see commercials for Revenge more than anything else. You want ratings …let people know the show exists!!

    It’s about time we the viewers get a serious and relevant show on our TV that keeps us addictive and worth watching – keeps on wanting more of it. SCANDAL is that show. Scandal is the best Television show ever with loves of real life’s stories, be it political, romantical, or all-the-wise -lol “word”.
    Right now, i live for this show. SCANDAL.

    I love this show. It has a little bit of everything and real acting – imagine, you can count on a good performance every week. I have not enjoyed a show this much since the West Wing.
