    I avoided this show because it's Shonda Rhimes and I hate Grays Anatomy.
    It's got lots of buzz on Twitter so I thought I'd try it out on Netflix.
    I'm addicted.
    I watched 30 episodes in about a week and Season 3 premiers tomorrow night (Thursday)

    So many great characters. Compelling story lines, some are kind of hokey ala Grays, but over all an excellent show.

    Am I alone?

    My wife and I just binge-watched it and are looking forward to Season 3. That ending to Season 2 was pretty great. "Dad?" :eek:

    It's definitely over the top and completely unrealistic but we enjoy it for what it is.

    Huck is the most interesting character on the show IMHO

    Definitely.

    And Quinn is adorable. :eek: Though I don't like where they're taking her character. Reminds me of [Buffy spoiler]:

    Dawn's shoplifting in Buffy. The storyline the character was created for was over so they needed to find something to do with her.

    Scandal is like House of Cards dumbed down for the masses. That being said, my wife and I love it! :D

    Okay, we get it. You don't like the direction they are taking her character ... ;)

    I have to admit, I was pretty damn shocked when she looked at Dyson from T2 and said "Dad?"

    I never watched Grays but I'm hooked on Scandal and can hardly wait until Thursday. The actors can keep up with the fast dialog but I can only watch with CC turned on. Columbus Short sounds like an auctioneer.

    Josh Malina has been a favorite of mine for years. He's the main reason I started watching.

    I didn't say it was logical but it was the reason I didn't watch.

    In Gunnyman's defense, all of Shonda Rhimes' shows have a similar feel to them, even if the subject matter is different. It's the way the dialogue is written.

    Can't stand Rhimes' other shows and my wife and I enjoy Scandal. We binged on it this summer. I am not sure how much either of us will remember, though, because a lot of the binging was in the hospital when my wife was recovering from surgery and/or in mild sepsis.

    Great season premiere. I love it when Mellie and Cyrus work together.

    It was really good and needs to be re-watched because I always miss something. Loved "I am the Hell and the Highwater" Dad, "Lawd-Lawd" Sally, "I'll turn on you in a minute" Cyrus, and "I got it all figured out" Mellie.

    Does anyone really thing Olivia's mom is actually dead and if she is, she died in an accident?

    A good portion of scandal and the 30 minutes preceding it were pre-empted coverage of a storm that was 45 minutes northeast of the primary viewing area. Going to have to watch it via other means. :(
