Check Out A Few 'Scandal' DVD Extras

Scandal is back and many of you are very excited about the exploits of Olivia Pope and company.  Last Thursday we got our answer to the season ending cliff hanger, Who's Quinn Perkins

Did you pick up your Scandal Season 1 DVD set?  The first season went on sale a few months ago but check out a few clips that are part of the DVD extras below.  The clips provide a bit of insight into the casting of Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope as well as conversations with Shonda Rhimes and the real life woman Olivia Pope is based on, Judy Smith.

Kerry is pretty, but Judy Smith is also pretty- just in a different way. Kerry truly takes her job seriously, and it shows.


I'm very happy for Shonda and Kerry, and the fact that it's based on a real life dynamic Black woman is awesome-ness. But I am so disappointed that I cannot get excited about this show. I finally watched Season 1 and was so underwhelmed. I can't help but compare it to the much better(imho) Damages with Glenn Close. I like Kerry but her only 2 facial expressions on Scandal are smugness and the doe-eyed quivering lip close-up. Her character has zero personality, and most of the other characters are annoying as hell. Plus I have never watched a Shonda production before; I HATE that rapid dialogue style everyone says is her hallmark. But congrats to the show anyway, aside from all that i am glad the show is a hit for them.
