All Lace no Leather said...

Lost interest before last season.

Sugar said...

Never seen it. I only watch horrible reality TV.

sandybrook said...

So Enty do you think Tony is the real father of Kerry's bebeh and that she beards for Nnamdi as a cover to protect her reputation and to hide hes gay?

Sugar said...

Anyone else watching Couples Therapy? Nikki is such a bitch and Jenna Jameson is certifiable!

Simon said...

Don't watch a single thing on network tv, only cable

Lady Heisenberg said...

I have a love-hate relationship with Scandal.
I still kind of love it, but I definitely kinda hate myself for it. That being said, Stanley's NYT article was totally fucked. I'm actual surprised Enty didn't post on that.

The NYT article and apology is the real scandal.

jack ducky said...

it was honestly one of the best eps of the show ever because I wasn't forced to see the disgustingness that is olitz. Mellie was fantastic but also so sad and OPA is totally back which makes me happy.

Seven of Eleven said...

@LadyH, that article made me furious. (Y)et another network series from her production company to showcase a powerful, intimidating black woman. Please. You'll never see an article talking about "yet another network series from a production company to showcase a powerful, intimidating white man", so why make an issue of both her race and gender to pretend like you're applauding her for both?

jack ducky said...

that article was so fucked up

Maisie said...

The show is not even the same show it used to be. It's turned into a hate watch, or just a no watch.

Voodoo Vixen said...

I thought last night's show was great! Waiting to see where this season brings us and if Harrison is really dead.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Yooohooo @sugar!
I better start watching that ASAP! thanks for the heads up ;)

@seven and @msgirl Word. They started that mess so they should own up to their shit. Such an interesting news story- Enty missed out on lots of clicks! But seriously. Fuck all that noise!

@jack ducky hey there sweet thannnng!! See you at the 11:30 blind!

jack ducky said...

He's definitely dead. Columbia short was fired because he's an abusive asshole.

Devil said...

You have not revealed anything about Scandal main couple in a while... On another note, the episode was really bad...

jack ducky said...

Lady, if you watch scandal we should watch together!

MsWeedle said...

Did anyone notice that Cyrus has a full head of hair this season? And I'm glad they've given Fitz eyebrows, it was so distracting when he didn't have any.

dunduhdunddun said...

I feel the same @lady. I gave up on Scandal because I kinda hate Olivia Pope. Got sick of her fucking people over on the show and then being like "oops" like she did with her Dad and not listening to him about the Mom.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Ohhh yay!!! I already have Ray D Sundays and SOA Tuesdays with @sugartittties, but I'm excited to add Shonda and Red Wine Thursdays with @ducky to the lineup! Did you watch the getting away with murder one? I'm gunna check that out after I catch up on Awkward ;)

PS- riri twerkin caaaaakes! I loooove the bootyfull new avi! Didn't I gif(t) you that gif a while ago ;) amazzzzzing! Mwah!

M. Brown said...

Last season's finale was hands down the best season finale ever. This 1st episode was a disappointment.

jack ducky said...

I did watch how to get away with murder and it was sooooo good! I adore viola davis.

And yes I believe you did gif me that once and it's just such a lovely gif I had to see it more often :p

FearN said...

Yep. He needed more hair to go up against Portia.

I watched a couple of episodes when it first came on but quickly tired of it. Kerry Washington's performance is one-note. The plot quickly devolved into absurdity. The self-important monologues are irritating. It's kind of like "The West Wing" (which was a much better show) where people deliver these massive monologues and whether it's a black male page or a white female press secretary, they all sound like the same person.

I watched How To Get Away With Murder last night and was similarly disappointed. It has such potential but when you stop and think about it, it's really "House 2.0" in a law school and/or courtroom as opposed to a hospital. Same irascible brilliant short-tempered shoot-from-the-hip call-it-like-it-is don't-suffer-fools-gladly -set-the-students-against-each-other lead ... same list of stock student characters, the ruthless but gorgeous female who wants to win at all costs, yada yada.

And they're not even pacing the show to introduce the characters, the trailer for the next episode shows the five "chosen" students standing around a corpse, dousing it with lighter fluid and setting it on fire to get rid of the DNA.

I'm over it already and episode 2 hasn't even aired yet.

Goldie said...

Cyrus's new hair could be its own character.

And Portia di Rossi looked like Ferris Bueller's mom.

Erik said...

None of that woman's shows interests me in the slightest.

The Adventures of... said...

I'm a love-hater too. End of the day, it's entertaining. But it's soooo stupid.

Mellie and 1976- lol.
Liv stalk walking - meh.
Olitz split- eyeroll. Errbody knows what's gonna happen.
Cyrus' toup - WTF?!?!
Papa Pope - making villains look good. Like.

Sarah said...

I am getting tired of all the characters speaking in the same cadence, they don't give each character their own voice. They all speak with Olivia's.

sugarbread maker said...

lady h.. you and ducky have me in for thursday night wine fest too!!
the corpse in htgawm was violas husband.. they showed his face at the end of the episode. i guess no one else picked up on that or quit watching the last 3 seconds of the show..
scandal was a letdown. it was too fast paced for an already fast paced show.
love millie this season,, she gives zero phucks and i love it..
watching jenny garths redisgn show now, it's kinda cool..

sugarbread maker said...

you can tell jenny is using lots of pills too

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

@sugar, yes, I did see that it was her husband. Maybe it's a flash forward to the very end of the season? I dunno.

They piled too much crap into the first episode, I was on overload, plus as I said - it's basically a clone of "House" - kind of a thematic plagiarism, if you ask me.

sugarbread maker said...

yeah pb. there was too much to process in ep 1. they need to slow the pace down so people can drink and watch...
