If you haven’t been watching Kerry Washington on ABC’s Scandal, slap yourself.  Not only are you missing some good TV but you’re also skipping the opportunity to support the first network TV show to star an African American woman since Nixon was president. (Shout out to Diahann Carroll who starred in Julia on NBC from 1968-71)

Last week’s episode The Trail, was by far the best yet.   The electric chemistry between Olivia Pope (Washington’s character) and President Grant (Tony Goldwyn), managed to not only make the creepy, asshole guy from Ghost sexy again but also cemented the show’s status as the can’t -miss drama on ABC.   We haven’t seen a Black woman this smart, sexy, flawed and fast talking on TV before and we won’t again unless we watch.   With a season shorter than a Chinese gymnast (only 7 episodes) Shonda Rhimes (creator) had to make every episode count.  And she did!  Tune in TOMORROW for THE SEASON FINALE.  If you need to ketchup, the entire series is online at hulu.com and abc.com.  Don’t sleep.

Things get heated between Olivia Pope and the President but not at all in a tawdry Bill Clinton with a nasty cigar kind of way.
