What the Hell Happened to Scandal?
Scandal, I have some questions for you. Namely, what the hell happened?
The ABC drama used to be believable. Not plausible, but at least somewhat believable. For any show to pull off the over-the-top melodrama Scandal does without becoming completely unhinged, it needs to be grounded by some semblance of reason. Even cartoons exist within a set of limitations. For example, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote can both run in midair unless Coyote looks down and realizes he’s about to fall. Then, by the rules of cartoon physics, he plummets. Recently though, it’s felt like Scandal’s been running full-speed ahead with no ground beneath it, but when they look down and see they’re about to fall, they say, ‘F—- it, I’m going higher.
LISTEN…I really liked scandal still do BUT I called this when season 2 was on..that people were going to kill this show…Everybody was hyping the show too damn much..hell BET stupid ass went & got purchasing rights to play episodes of the show on its network which was fucking dumb…bc you could watch that shit on ABC.com or even ON DEMAND..fucking Hulu or YouTube….WHY THE FUCK DID BET NEED TO PUT THE EPISODES ON ITS NETWORK..ITS A DAMN NEW SHOW..NOT EVEN IN SYNDICATION [if im not mistaken]…
Season 1 played out the way it did because they didn’t think the show was going to last so they went all out..& that pretty much been their whole motto just go with the flow however to sustain a show you have to give credible storylines/plots..especially with a show like this…I’m surprised Grey’s Anatomy has lasted this long….we already know Scandal is not reaching that number - no way-..the biggest mistake they made was the Olivia/Fitz storyline- Ive never been here for that storyline..I watched the show for everything else…at this point they annoy me bc they want to be together but cant & blah blah blah like ok move on then - DEUCES!
I want this show to succeed but if anyone has been following this season can you really see this show continuing for another 3 seasons? like really ? shit another season period?
smh idk..I’ll still watch ..& I still get shocked & like OMG WTF but its like even what the article stated…there’s so many times they can do this…& it seems that’s the point of their episodes..like EVERY episode needs to having a shocking moment
Shonda needs to get her shit together..like don’t get excited bc the show is the talk of social media & memes galore..step your writing up & make this show better- you were lucky with Grey’s ..I honestly don’t think you will be with Scandal
Ima re blog this forever …they better step the shit outta this new season…
