I'm a massive greys anatomy fan and I've been wondering whether to give this a go seeing as it's by Shonda.

Any opinions on if it's good or not?

It's a thumbs up from me. Has changed a lot since the first series, but I still enjoy it. Glamour, sex, drama, suspense, bit of everything really grin

ShuttyTown Sat 13-Jan-18 18:59:23

Sounds good then grin is the main character a lawyer? Can't remember what it's actually about!

Purplerunner Sat 13-Jan-18 19:05:50

Not a lawyer, but a "fixer", who is having a relationship with the (married) U.S. president. Same old, same old grin

It's amazing, definitely give it a go.

Yes it's great. For the first few seasons ... then the storyline starts to go a bit mad. I love Olivia Pope's wardrobe!!

First few seasons are good but then it starts getting but repetitive/predictable and you start losing sympathy for any of the characters.

Thanks everyone I'll give it a go then 😁

It's bonkers now, but brilliant!

It's very different from greys, very dark! I like it though, the last series running is the last, I am sort of glad as it's lost it's way a bit, but loved its earlier series. How to get away with murder is another Shona land series.

I have recently started watching it, half way through series 3 now. Really love it, I go from sobbing, to laughing to gasping all in one episode. Totally and ridiculously far fetched but that's what's so great about it. Characters are mainly brilliant.

How to get away with Murder 1st series was brilliant, couldn't get into the 2nd though.

I love it just because it's ridiculous and ott perfect switch off your brain TV grin

Love scandal! I do feel it lost it's way a bit got too much about Olivia and power and got easy to forget about. Am yet to watch the new series so hopefully it goes back to old scandal!

ShuttyTown Thu 18-Jan-18 18:37:26

Just watched the first episode and I loved it, looking forward to watching more!

BrieAndChilli Thu 18-Jan-18 18:43:50

We love it.

I find though with pretty much all tv series they are brill for the first 2-3 series, they then either run out of story line or try to be clever and do too many twists so end up losing the essence of what made the show brill in the first place.

ZanyMobster Thu 18-Jan-18 20:02:15

Just finished series 3! I feeling slightly disappointed that people are saying the next series are not as good, I've really enjoyed it so far so want it to be good

TheBrilloPad Thu 18-Jan-18 20:20:00

It seems they have just stopped showing series 7?! They did show "part 1" of the series finale then stopped it?! I need the finale!!

VeraGrant Thu 18-Jan-18 20:30:14

It’s because of the mid season break. Think it’s back next month?

Threeminis Sun 28-Jan-18 20:12:50

I'm on season 6. I love it. I'm absolutely hooked.

Figgygal Sun 28-Jan-18 20:15:37

I used to love it now watch it more out of loyalty than enjoyment.

dingdongdigeridoo Sun 28-Jan-18 22:52:06

I used to love it and binged the first few seasons really quickly. Then it just all kind of fell apart. Ever see Revenge? It had the same problem where there was a shadowy government agency which was far fetched and ruined the plot.

Any one still watching? Scandal is back from the mid season break and its still brilliantly bonkers.... so is she dead? Why did he get his bones back? Robin? Why am I still bothered?

TheBrilloPad Sat 03-Mar-18 18:47:51

Is it back?! I had no idea!! I had been waiting for ages! I'll see if I can find it later and watch it!! Eeeeeeeeek

Purplerunner Sat 03-Mar-18 20:42:29

Crazy as ever. She can't be dead, can she?

Plus I don't understand why he has his bones back either? Surely that was the whole point of Olivia not backing down in their confrontation.? Or did she?

Threeminis Sat 03-Mar-18 21:39:02

Purple where are you?? I wish I was in your position
I'm waiting for the next season
