Sexy soap opera thriller. When the first season aired (on ABC), I didn't like Scandal. When several friends said "try again", I did -- and I got hooked, completely and happily. If you like political intrigue, ensemble casts, love triangles, and thrillers with twists and turns, you'll find it all in Scandal. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix; Season 3 is on television now, on Thursday nights. Starring Kerry Washington. The always-wonderful Khandi Alexander has a recurring role this season.
