Scandal is a new drama that centers on Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), a former media relations consultant to the President who has the power to "fix" things for everyone. Now, she is on her own working for herself with a new law firm. However, as it always is, the past starts to come back into her life when slowly it is clear that her staff, who are specifically trained in fixing the lives of other people, can't seem to quite fix their own issues.
Revenge has become the 2011-2012 season's new mystery drama, replacing what LOST was for the ABC network. The show gives what the audience wants but still leaves room for wanting more. And getting a taste for what happens later in the season in the pilot episode was a different sort of narrative technique audience members don't see often.
