Quick Look: "Scandal"

Over the summer I've been bemoaning the lack of good TV to watch and have been looking for shows to power-watch.  Netflix has been great for this but I'm starting to run out of good TV to power-watch and am sliding into just watching TV.

There's a reason I don't watch cable.

Enter the Shonda Rhimes run, Kerri Washington vehicle Scandal, a darker procedural with a healthy dose of mystery that has a soupçon of danger about it.  Yes, it's unrealistic (as was Grey's Anatomy, as was Private Practice) but it's reasonable enough that you can suspend your disbelief for the sake of the show.  A good looking cast, interesting chemistry and storylines with enough meat to keep you interested, it's worth watching if you want to kill some time.

The only issue?  I find the actor playing the president gives me the heebie jeebies.  Check it out, available on Netflix US, Blu Ray and DVD.
