Did you just finish watching what you considered to be the best series ever? Are you tired of scrolling through Netflix without any luck? Look no further than Scandal. The political thriller that aired in 2012 created by Rhonda Shimes stars Kerry Washington as “ Olivia Pope”.
The show, which takes place In Washington DC, focuses on Olivia’s work at her crisis management firm “Pop and associates”. What Olivia basically does is clean up the mess made by significant people in the USA.
Something that you can assure yourself from watching the series is that you will never get bored of the juicy drama and sudden plot twists. From helping the president, to having the White House begging for her, Olivia is an alpha female who will take on anything that is considered impossible and shine while doing it. Kerry Washington plays Olivia, which will leave you astonished because not only does she embody the character perfectly, but she will convince you that everything you see in the press can be manipulated. Her enthusiasm to excel, and fear of failure are captured exceptionally and can even be a little contagious. It is no surprise that one of the producers in the series happens to be George W. Bush's press aide. This makes the episodes a little bit more realistic and based on scandals that have occurred in the past.
I would definitely recommend this series to anybody who is into politics, justice and equality. Anybody looking for a dose of drama will be immediately hooked. It is an outstanding show that will have you biting your nails for the whole 45 minutes. I do warn you though that this series is very addicting and if you press play you will not stop. Seriously. I even named my new puppy Olivia Pope.
