Storyline

When you get into trouble there's only one person to call, Olivia Pope. Olivia is a professional 'fixer' who makes problems go away before anyone even knows they exist. For the moneyed, the powerful and even the President, Olivia is a legend in her field. Her spectacular success is mostly due to her unbreakable rule of always trust your gut. No matter how careful you are, when you do damage control for a living, you're bound to cause some damage to your own life. She and her crew eat, sleep, live and breathe crisis. Each week, as the team races against the clock to defuse intriguing new problems before they become full-blown disasters, they also have to deal with their own personal issues. They may call themselves 'gladiators in suits', but little by little, Olivia and her crew begin to reveal the chinks in their armor. Written by Anonymous

Bravo!!
12 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally a show that's smart, entertaining, love the simmering suspense and the build up of secrets that will ultimately explode on the show. Read the other naysayers reviews. Especially the one with the 'liberal' dig.

I disagree with the prediction that this show will fail. I think finally network TV is getting it right. Can't wait to see where the shows goes!!

Especially since I've since learned from that trashcan Faux News channel that the lead character is based on a real powerhouse woman in DC that deals in crisis management. This show has so much further to go!
