    Political Soap Opera

    Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwynn persuasively create the characters of Olivia Pope and President Fitzgerald Grant having a strong rapport with each other. There are other talented actors and actresses in this series as well and it is hard for me to narrow it down to just one favorite. However, I admit that I also greatly enjoyed the characters of Abby Whelan (played in a passionate way by Darby Stanchfield) and Huck (played in a natural way by Guillermo Diaz). There is a scene in the series where the character of Abby Whelan speaks up in regards to protecting the wife of a client. You then have the character of Huck who carefully and discreetly carries out certain dealings for Olivia. However, a viewer would also get the feeling that he is doing this from the noble intent to help out Olivia in the best way he can. There is a scene that is really funny when the character of Olivia Pope is urging Huck to avoid using violence in his dealings. There is so much more that I can share about this series, but I must leave unlisted out of consideration for those who would be seeing this series for the first time. “Scandal Season One” is good for those who would enjoy watching spontaneous and unique political tv shows that are set in the Washington D.C. area.

    I have been waiting for Scandal to reach the market place. In saying this, I found Best Buy to be the first store with new presentations of videos. Other stores do not have this timely availability. My friends often ask where do you find videos that are not available for sale by other stores? I proudly say "Best Buy" where else.

    It was gift for my wife bc she loves the show. She made me watch it with her, and to my surprise, I liked it. There are a lot of monologues. They are well written, but sometimes feel unrealistic. The plots and subplots are very interesting and can even make you wonder "does that really happen?"

    Scandal is a good tv series that you don't want to miss. You will want to keep up with every episode every Thursday at 9:00 pm. Kerry Washington is such a good actress and so are the other actors and actresses in the show. You will want to buy each season as soon as it comes out on dvd.

    Hooked on Scandal

    During a regular season I never had the opportunity to view this show, and only heard about how exciting the show was and how many of my friends have become hooked. After my purchase, I too am hooked! I enjoy getting it over, by having a full season at my disposal without commercials.

    Good start

    This is a great way to start off the series and get a feel of the characters and speed of the show. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is that there wasn't any bonus features or commentary. However the episodes are still entertaining regardless.

    Love the story but only had 1 disk with 3 or 4 show on it. I didn't realize that when I bought it. So that is why I was very dissapointed. I wanted to watch more.Season 2 has 4 or 5 disk inside. I can't wait to watch that one when I buy it.
