Scandal - 1x01 Sweet Baby

Sweet Baby

Young lawyer Quinn Perkins is offered a job with the crisis management firm Olivia Pope and Associates. Quinn is in awe. Olivia Pope is the former communications director to the President. She and her team of "gladiators in suites" will do whatever it takes to make their clients' problems go away, and newbie Quinn is initiated into the group with trial by fire on day one. Olivia's former boss, President Fitzgerald Grant and his chief of staff, Cyrus Beene are never far from her beat - and when a White House intern accuses the President of having an affair, Olivia is the only one they trust to diffuse the problem. But the news hits close to home for Olivia, and Quinn soon realizes Olivia's clients aren't the only ones with secrets.

so good

I liked the plot: it is a procedural show with an interesting backstory related to politics. Also, the procedural formula is refreshing: not about finding the culprit, in Scandal what matters is absolving the client. The pilot's case was good enough to keep me guessing and it had a satisfying, shocking solution. Just one thing, though: SHOW SPOILER . Anyway, this small issue aside, it was an overall enjoyable episode that asks the viewer to catch the next one ASAP. It also had a great lesson in the end, when Sully's case came to a unimaginable culmination. Good job. (PS.: Why do they talk so fast? It's like they're in some sort of competition to see who speaks faster. Sometimes, it's even hard to keep track).

The only reason why I watched this pilot was Henry Ian Cusick and he certainly doesn't disappoints. In fact, he's the biggest advantage of this series and frankly, probably the only one. Unfortunately, even great actor can't save a show with a dull plot. It looks like the producers didn't have an idea on this one - nothing special...
