Tonight I will be enjoying Kerry Washington as she returns to her break-out role as Olivia Pope in Scandal on ABC Television at 10PMEST. Like Olivia Pope I will be enjoying a tall goblet of wine, Moscato wine kindly provided to me by Gallo Family Vineyards.
Lately television shows have gotten a lot smarter. They have better writers, better plots and the best actors money and talent can offer. The end result: The Best TV in a very long time. No longer do smart viewers have to depend on cable network TV for smart and entertaining shows.
I admit I have been a fan of Scandal since the pilot episode. It gives me a much needed escape from my everyday life. The bonus I think is the genius writing of Shonda Rhimes and the excellent believable acting of Kerry Washington. Not since the TV show Julia, starring Diahann Carroll has a black woman held a leading role in a National TV Series in the U.S.
Something about the show makes it appeal to almost everyone who sits down to watch it. It fills a hole that I never knew I had. I find myself looking forward to the next episode week after week after week. It’s everything a show should be,engaging, contagious, controversial and addictive. I enjoy the fact that I ever know whats next. When you’re avid TV watcher like I am many times you can/will guess the punchline, but not with Scandal. the show keeps the most loyal viewers guessing.
Tonight, I will be enjoying the season opener of Scandal while sipping on Gallo Family Vineyards Mosacto wine and Live tweeting with my other African American Bloggers. If you also enjoy Scandal please join us using the hashtag #AABloggers, we’ll be sure and tweet back.
