Scandal: Kerry Washington’s New Show
April 9th, 2012
Always in search of Blactresses (Black actresses) and Blactors (Black actors), I mentioned before that Kerry Washington would be on your television every week, staring in the new series set in Washington, D.C. Scandal, ABC’s new Spring show, created by Shonda Rimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy premiered a couple weeks ago.
I watched it online this weekend and provide the link below for the scene that made me want to tune in at least until the 4th week. I’ll reserve my critique for next week, after a couple more episodes, but I will comment that the show isn’t awful. I’m not sure yet if it’s going to be melodramatic dribble, but I’ll keep you posted.
Check it out for yourself and we’ll meet back here at the top of next week.
The show is innovative, different and entertaining to say the least. Not like most shows where you can figure out the ending at the first 2 minutes of the show. I salute Kerry Washington for portraying the role of a smart, beautiful, powerful, truthful, African American woman in an ALL WHITE Washington D.C. Not to mention the character ie well known and respected as the VERY BEST at what she does! I hope the show lasts.
