No doubt this is one of my dopiest series of all time; and if you have not seen this series, Biko goan look for it and watch it. Trust me, it’s worth the time and investment. Scandal is kinda centered on political and crime scenes, and we’ve got a lady called Olivia Pope the fixer who happens to be the main character of this television series. Scandal is a television series produced by Shonda Rhimes and its storyline reveals what happens in the corridor of power using American politics as a case study.
Olivia Pope happens to be a daughter to a terrorist mother and to a father who runs a deadly secret command called B16. Despite having a twisted childhood, Olivia has all money could buy and thus proceeded to study law at one of the best schools in the world, after which she floated her law chamber called “Olivia Pope Associates” aka OPA. Her associates were individuals who she had helped from life-threatening situations but possess special talents and thus they hold their allegiances to her. At the beginning of the series, her associates were Abbey, Huck, Quinn, Henry, and Harrison who later got killed by Olivia’s dad.
Apart from being from a privileged family, Olivia Pope was romantically linked to the most powerful man on earth, the American president! At OPA, they offer crises management for top executives and help them get away with crime or bring justice depending on what they are been paid for.
Scandal is one of the best coming from Shonda Rhimes. She has also got other interesting series like Grey’s Anatomy, Off the Map, How to Get Away with Murder, The Catch, Station 19, Private Practice, etc. Soonest, I will also be reviewing some of her series too.
PS: Olivia Pope was portrayed by Kerry Washington and she got married to an Igbo Boy (yaaay). That makes her a Nigerian and my sister-in-law, *wink* (dancing skelewu lol)
