Public Service Announcement 58 of 2015: Scandal

Scandal is back on UK screens tonight, perhaps with something to prove after an inconsistent fourth season. Still, with that group of characters, dialogue polished until it gleams, and an apparently inexhaustible supply of political chicanery as fuel, it’s never less than entertaining, even if the standards set by the jaw-dropping season 2 are unlikely to be repeated. Weekly reviews once more (tonight, 10pm, Sky Living).

    I have seen the first half of season 5 which was really good (a few great episodes) and then we got to the mid-season finale and I was left trying to make sense of that last episode.

    But yes Scandal has rebounded from season 4.

      #Scandal’s Dog-Whistle Politics is one of @Time’s Top TV Episode’s of the Year! http://ti.me/1lfplVO

      I agree with Time magazine that episode 4 was one of the great episodes which highlighted a lot that is wrong with the media in general, corrupt politicians and folks (trolls) on social media. It also dealt with issues of gender, race, class, rape culture and other social ills.

      Don’t read the article if you don’t like spoilers for Scandal and the other shows listed.
