U.K. Scandal has just began and I can't wait for my catch up.

Not looking forward to the president and Olivia's relationship.

Just finished the last series. I can't watch any more, it's turned into Revenge. It used to be my favourite programme now it's just mentalsad

I love it! Just watching the episode now.

All very Princess Di!! Not got to the end yet though

Love it! Seems back on form after last season - I love Mellie & Olivia!

I love Mellie too. Can't stand Fitz, his and Olivia's relationship is the worst part of the show.

I hope the murder rate goes down this series and more drama. Millie for president would be fair.

oneowlgirl Sat 05-Dec-15 14:06:14

I would love Mellie as president.

I'd love to see Mellie become president once Fitz's term is up. Then he and Olivia can bugger off with their boringness and all the good characters could just run the show.

That said, I have gone off Scandal a lot. The gross torture scenes and boring love stories have really ruined what was a decent political thriller.

We just finished season 4 was a mega bingewatch but its just bonkers now but i love it i have a soft spot for huck (iknow i know) i just feel sorry for him. and yeah Mellie for president shed be fab grin. I wiill need to wait till its on box set we got rid of sky and missed the start on now tv

Fitz gives me the heebs he is so dull and not sexy

I agree with notquitehuman that the show has taken a really odd path with all the violence and b613 storylines. I also really hate fitz and Olivia as a couple. I'll give it a chance but I might ditch it if things don't improve pretty quickly.

I thought that it was great at first with a scandal that was sorted out every ep.

But now yes, the violence.

And bloody Rowan.

Just get rid!

Have never like Fitz & Olivia, but then I've never liked adultery as a premis for a "true love" story.

MrsJayy Sun 06-Dec-15 09:57:40

Pappa pope is a pain in the arse. They just need to get back to fixing but i suspect next series will be olivia whitehouse guff

I've never liked adultery as a premis for a "true love" story.

This with bells on. And I also can't stand Rowan.
Hmm... Why do I still watch this?!

MrsJayy Sun 06-Dec-15 10:06:15

Thats what i was just thinking why am i waiting impatiently for season 5 grin tbf I dont think you are meant to think fitz and Olivia as loves young dream they are both selfish out for themselves characters

MrsJayy Sun 06-Dec-15 10:07:37

Cyrus Beane is a monster but i still love him

Debbriana1 Sun 06-Dec-15 10:58:38

I agree with what everyone is saying but I still love it. More fixing I hope. I think if it just stack to fixing the show could go on forever. With this it feels like it's about to shut its doors.

I love scandal. At the end of season 4. Finding it silly, but it's always silly. Don't like Fitz but seems they need him and Olivia to be a couple to keep the central scandal, what could be more scandalous? But the writers have decided the relationship needs to simmer down for a while to build up drama.

I don't like b613 (why oh why is it called such a shit name?) . I really don't like the way Rowan delivers lines. They could do to find a different baddie to fight.

I also don't like Huck (stupid whispery voice), or Abbie (boring and shrill)

Still enjoy it overall.

Top tip watch 'How to get away with murder' by same show runner.

I found ep1 series 5 on Now tv yaaay will watch it later with dh

notquitehuman Mon 07-Dec-15 10:05:48

The Huck and Quinn storyline is so gross. He tortures her, doesn't show any remorse for it, and she's basically forgiven him. Life goes on.

MrsJayy Mon 07-Dec-15 10:39:06

I think there is some torturers code she is shagging charlie and he broke her jaw and they beat each other and its foreplay

Debbriana1 Mon 07-Dec-15 21:36:28

Quinn definitely needs mumsnet. That is one hell of an abusive relationship and she seems to feed on it.

MrsJayy Tue 08-Dec-15 08:27:46

First episode of season 5 was soo good have you all seen season 5 ?

The vast majority of men, especially main love interests, in Shonda Rhimes' shows are horrible people. Fitz is an emotional abuser, Derek Shepherd was too. Dr Burke was an arse, as was Sam Bennett (Private Practice).
