AKA Six degrees of Scandal desperation
How goes it fellow gladiators and scandalistas? It’s almost a month since the Scandal season finale aired and I’ve been getting on with things. You know, I finally caught up on shows like Supernatural, and Revenge. Life’s been good. Yes, there was that one time when I had to check into Scandal rehab for a short while but, it’s all good. I’m proving to myself that not all roads lead to Scandal.
Who am I kidding. Even when I’m watching other shows, talking to people or just doing me, my brain makes crazy connections to Scandal. For instance:
Bejewelled Blitz is a simple little game that I like to play on my iPad when I’m bored or watching something that doesn’t require too much attention. In this game you have to match 3 or more gems and detonate special gems. You get a minute to play. Yes, the voice at the start of each round says ‘one minute, go.’ This used to mean nothing but ever since Scandal season one episode six, The Trail, one minute means so much more.
It’s taken me ages to get into SyFy’s expensive TV series, Defiance but I eventually caught up and I quite like it. But every so often my mind will wander off and I’ll start thinking about vote rigging. You gladiators know that Defiance means something else in the world of Scandal. I wonder if SyFy will consider renaming the whole Defiance franchise.
Any Fixer will do
I’ve been scoping out Olivia Pope’s competition and I’m counting down the days until Ray Donovan airs just so I can make reckless comparisons. Nowhere is it written that this show will be anything like Scandal but the fact that Ray Donovan is a fixer is enough to get me fixated.
Shut up Quinn!
My son and I were bantering the other day and he was ribbing me about my sci fi choices, out of the blue I said “Oh shut up Quinn!” His name is not Quinn FFS! I didn’t feel too bad though because in the next breath I said “You know nothing Jon Snow”, which is a Game of Thrones reference. I figured if I can make a GoT reference in the same conversation as a Scandal one, I’m not doing do badly and there really is no need to check into rehab.
How’s everyone else coping without Scandal?
