Shonda Rhimes has her own way of plotting series. She is the main writer of at least four well-known series, and still, she blew the people away with her latest project: Scandal.
Scandal started off great – even considered amazing. What’s not to love – Shonda Rhimes breathed life into an African American woman (Olivia Pope) with strong character and astounding ingenuity; who falls in love with a married president. It has such a strong and intriguing storyline that hops from intricate politic cases to passionate scenes at a brisk pace.
But personally, up to season 4 Shona Rhimes is trying too hard to keep the viewers engaged, that the storylines started to feel quite arbitrary. It feels like the writers are working the plot per episode, that the whole Scandal doesn’t feel as cohesive as the first and second season anymore. On the flip side, still – like I said, Shonda Rhimes has her own way of plotting series. She can make you hate her so much, but still finding yourself waiting for the next episodes and wondering how the story will unfold. So let’s just see what Shonda Rhimes has up her sleeve for the fifth season.
There’s a strong reason why the ‘Olivia Pope wardrobe’ is now all over the place (seriously, try to look it up). The Internet has serious crush on her office fashion that it has a name after Olivia Pope. Compared to The Good Wife, Olivia Pope played fashion with different colors and styles – but still decently. Even when Kerry Washington (the cast for Olivia Pope) was hiding her pregnancy, she still looked gorgeous.
