Scandal’s season finale shocked us to our core. “The Price of Free and Fair Election” was riddled with surprises. And there was also a lot more loss than we were expecting. Shonda Rhimes sure knows how to end a year with a bang.
Scandal is six days away from the Presidential election and a long shot off from where it should be. “Flesh and Blood” wasn’t as explosive as we were expecting. Though some have payed for their crimes, we’re still waiting for the show to restore our confidence.
Scandal knows how to surprise people. “The Fluffer” started out at a slow pace, but ended with a bang. Only two weeks are left in the season and we’re not sure if they’ve done enough to prepare us for the end. The Players: Director: Jeannot Szwarc Writer: Chris Van Dusen and Raamla Mohamed Cast: Kerry Washington,...
Scandal knows how to hit, especially when the mothers are dealing the blows. “Mama Said Knock You Out” made Mellie and her kids the stars of the night. No one knows how to fight like a family. And with Olivia’s parents working to tear her apart, the night was sheer perfection.
Scandal is up to its old tricks. "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" focuses on the day after the shooting and its fallout. As the victim's family dealt with their loss, a few kisses kept us distracted. The Players: Director: Randy Zisk Writer: Matt Byrne Cast: Kerry Washington, Guillermo Diaz, Columbus Short, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes,...
Scandal has a tried and true recipe for kicking things into high gear. "No Sun on the Horizon" made good on the show's promised second shocker. Even though they delivered we're still wondering if the old formula's enough.
Scandal is creeping closer to something; we just hope it’s worth the wait. “We Don’t Touch the First Ladies” was not without its moments. There was enough drama and intrigue to keep us on the edge of our seats. It's the nature of the animal this show has created: All we want is more.
You can stop holding your breath now. The Spring Premiere of Scandal is finally upon us. “Ride, Sally, Ride” had all the potential one could dream of, with a few holes here and there. “Uncommon valor is a common virtue,” but not all of the virtuous can stay clean while achieving that title.
Explosive is a word often associated with Scandal , but this week's episode is so much more. “A Door Marked Exit” was the perfect depiction of our dreams realized. The winter finale was everything we expect from this juggernaut. Do yourself a favor and be prepared to fall in love. The Players: Director: Tom Verica Writer: Zahir...
This week, Scandal's “YOLO” was the thrill ride everyone expected it to be. Hardly anyone was spared during the explosive events of the night. You only live once so scroll carefully, this episode is a doozy.
If you haven’t seen last night’s Scandal you might want to stop here—this isn’t an episode you want to spoil. “Vermont is for Lovers, Too” showed just how far Mama Pope is willing to go to reconnect with her daughter. If that’s not enough Quinn’s hole keeps getting b=bigger and bigger while Cyrus is taking risks he can’t afford.
Last night, Scandal dropped some major bombs. “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie” gave us a look at a happier First Lady, and a very confused Quinn. Also, the night ended with a stunning revelation that no one expected. The Players: Director: Michael Katleman Writer: Peter Nowalk Cast: Kerry Washington, Guillermo Diaz,...
For weeks, Scandal has been building towards something but last night proved there’s much more ahead. “Icarus” dealt with the fallout from Olivia’s most recent revelation, along with guest star Lisa Kudrow’s continued success. Rest assured no one fell out of the sky, but you might just fall out of your seat.
Everyone loves a party, even the gladiators on Scandal. “More Cattle, Less Bull” dealt with White House Correspondence dinner while Jake quietly burrowed into our hearts. Lisa Kudrow returned as a guest star, whom we hope sticks around.
Without Scandal Thursday nights would be nothing. “Say Hello to My Little Friend” toyed with the Anthony Weiner sexting drama, adding a murder twist. Lisa Kudrowbegins her run as a guest star, but Jake is the one who steals the show.
Scandal knows who to fear. Hell hath no fury like a mother in distress. “Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington” brought the return of regular clients—though the first isn’t exactly what she seems. Things are going well but we're worried the show may be losing its edge.
Without Scandal Thursday nights would be so empty. “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” explained Olivia’s relationship with her father through their favorite looking glass: Flashbacks. The hour wasn’t wasted, but there’s something in the air this season that we just don’t like.
Scandal, America's favorite guilty pleasure is back on Thursday nights. “It’s Handled” does what Pope & Associates do best, fix things — just not the way Olivia planned. Don't worry though, the season premiere was exactly what we’d all been waiting for.
Another slow week for DVD and Blu-ray releases, but hey, hopefully your taxes are done, and you can pick up Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Otherwise, there’s a great classic 80’s film hitting the Criterion collection, and some classic Jackie Chan films.
In 2009, Quentin Tarantino tackled Europe's Nazi past with Inglourious Basterds. Three years later, he's decided to take care of home. The writer and director's latest work, Django Unchained, focuses on the darkest time in American history. Jamie Foxx stars as a freed slave, who with the help of a German bounty hunter, searches for his wife in a world set on keeping them...
