After the first episode, I knew for sure that it was a keeper/a show that I instantly liked and was gonna continue watching. The cast is a little odd but works great and Kerry Washington is what makes this show. One of her best career moves id say....This show isnt a disapointment and there is kind of a twist at the end that screams season 2, which has been confirmed =)

This is how primetime television should be done; if we have to suffer thru commercial after commercial and dictates of primetime, give it some bang (literally) for the buck. The season finale, was second for second, moment to moment, break to break and in it's entirety one of the best and most excitingly written, acted, edited and even produced television shows to air on network primetime; I only pause to think how it stupefying it would be if it were and HBO series. Also, the chemistry between Kerri Washington and Tony Goldwyn is the most dynamic of any series and far beats most cinema.

This is based on an actual person who's a fixer. Obviously not true to life but very intriguing to see the spin Olivia takes and the methods used to achieve that spin. I like ALL of the characters. Well acted. Unique. Incredible back stories as to why they made it to Olivia's team. Government BS abounds. I can't miss an episode. I am addicted, afflicted and a loyal fan.
