It’s been quite a while since I’ve had a show I can wholeheartedly recommend here at Remote Patrolled…check out my thoughts soon on this summer’s offerings including Devious Maids and Under The Dome.

But there’s one series I can definitely give the thumbs up too – Scandal.

Yep, I know – it’s two seasons old already. What can I say – I was late to the party. After hearing everyone rave about Scandal over the last year I can now see what all the fuss is about. It really is THAT good!

In case you, like me, are a little in the dark on Scandal – here’s the basic gist. The show revolves around PR queen Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), a fast talking, supremely confident and extremely good at her job crisis handler who helps make people’s problems go away. Olivia is surrounded by a similarly effective team of memorable characters including Harrison, a super-smart lawyer who’s fiercely loyal to her; Abby, an investigator with a fabulously sarcastic streak; Quinn, the team newbie who’s been living under a secret identity; and best of the bunch, Huck, a damaged soldier who does Olivia’s dirty work and hates that he sometimes enjoys it.
