My younger brother told me about this new show, Scandal, whom he initial describes as like the story of a US President with an illicit affair with an intern. Yes, like Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton. So I was curious to see it. I started watching the episodes this morning and I cannot help it. It hooks me. The entire season 1 is just seven episodes, but ABC announced that it will return with a 13 episode Season2.
The story, actually, revolves around Olivia Pope, a former White House Communications Director who is now running her own crisis management firm, Olivia Pope and Associates. She gets high-profiles clients through series of episodes, but the most challenging of all is the confession of a White House employee that she and the US President is having an affair, and she’s pregnant.
The series is created by Shonda Rhimes, who gives us the medical drama, Greys Anatomy. The DVD of the entire season 1 will be released on June 12, 2012.
