I generally don't try to lure people into watching Shondaco productions: Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, and Scandal. There's a lot to lament. But she is great at rehiring proven actors. Our tastes seem to line up perfectly. And look who the new political fixer is! Pitch perfect casting, a seamless parallel to Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope. I'm giddy just imagining the razor sharp repartee fly. Blue steel vs. Le Tigre.
