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.
