Friendly reminder this show was filmed in front of a live studio audience in one take.
And that all sitcom laugh tracks are taken from this show because the laughter was so sincere.
friendly reminder that this show was fuckin awesome
And most of the people who were recorded laughing are dead now. When you hear people laughing in sitcoms today, it’s the recorded laughter of dead people.
Well that escalated quickly
What happens when people have too much time and money. Give this baby some fisher price.
I don’t even know what to think….
Kerry performs the 1851 speech by the famous abolitionist, Sojourner Truth, as part of a reading from A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn.
Watch the full performance [x]
I will always reblog this. Always.
Watched it late and didn’t want any spoilers, so I stayed away from social media. But what I will say is, I am neither shocked nor surprised by the ending, while episode 2x20 in my opinion was more explosive and game changing, the finale tied up loose strings. Scandal is a drama NOT a soap opera! I repeat a drama and while we are all ride or die Olitz, how boring would it be for Fitz to get his girl and ride off into the sunset, let me show you, zzzzzzzzzzzzz! Not here for basic narratives that follow the text book definition of heteronormal relationships of boy meets girl, boy falls in love, boy loses girl, boy gets girl in the end!
Olivia already alluded to not being a fairy tale and we wouldn’t stick around for a plot that involved a 45 minute plot of angst filled Olitz with a character who we all described as the baddest chic in a perfectly tailored suit being weak and emotionally unavailable! Its way too exhausting! And you don’t stick around for plots that resemble Suzy homemaker and her once powerful ex-president boo eating popcorn and playing kissy face at the offices of OPA. What we’ve all said in some way or another is: “what happened to our gladiators they seem weak, they are wrong more often than not lately, what is up with Olivia’s gut, why doesn’t Harrison have a boo and who the hell is Olivia Pope!” This is still a great freggin show and SR has already concluded that Olitz is endgame. How much better would it be for Rowan to know things about operation Remington and not want Olivia with Fitz for that reason. Aren’t you curious about Liv’s mother and why the hell Liv doesn’t talk to either of them and what really happened once she left Fitz’s office, you do realize it’s unresolved.
I don’t want a basic narrative. i want old OPA, Liv’s gut to return, bitchy abby, psychotic Quinn, off the rails Huck and boss in suspenders Harrison. Olitz crazy love doesn’t dissipate with his murder revelation or her desire to be a gladiator for her team it would completely negate their garden scene. Fitz just told Mellie that she is a none fuckin factor than starts groveling back????? Aren’t you curious to know if that’s even a real scenario or a Mellie Delusion because Fitz was Cyrus heart attach serious with his speech to Mellie and we didnt see Liv leave his office and shes smiling before her run after telling the love of her life that she is choosing her job over him after she concocted her First Lady entry strategy??? Lets pick up the clues “gladiators” and I use that term loosely because real gladiators are doing some real episode researching for clues and parallels.
You may not like the ending but all real gladiators in attendance will be front and center for season 3 with their popcorn, wine and Grant for reelection buttons waiting for it to go DOWN.
Side note for the thirsty** my advice to all of those who refuse to buy another cover of Olitz is, spend the summer finding a man and stop transferring your emotional and relationship short comings to the actors of a pretend show — get your life!!! After all we’re supporting Ms. Kerry Washington, who is making history and killing the game right now!
anyone feel “satisfied”, as TG said we would?
I did. There are a lot of questions now but there’s a lot of material for S3. Olivia being outed, her dad, Fitz rerunning. I never expected Olitz to be together. Its just a fact of a show like this.
White Hat’s Back On Cliffhanger moment….
I knew it. How many other people knew it?
Liv getting outed as Fitz’s lover was more of a cliffhanger for me personally.
Let’s focus on that too! Who leaked that Olitz connection to the press..and why? Who pulled the trigger? That’s the cliffhanger! Who outed Olitz? #WhoOutedOlitz
What if Fitz did it??
