Recently I’ve been watching Scandal for the first time. It started out as a fun romp with another kick ass woman, Olivia Pope (a lawyer, campaign manager and general all round fixer), calling the shots and fixing the scandals of high profile Beltway people on a weekly basis, with an implausible but always slightly possible romance between her and the President of the United States in the background. Five seasons later and pretty much each one of the ensemble cast has murdered at least one other person (minimum). Oh yeah – and did I mention there’s a secret black ops organisation involved? And Olivia’s dad runs it? Again, what the hell? That entry point for the audience, that fine line where you can just about believe what’s going on even though you know it’s impossible is smashed to smithereens.
