A former media relations consultant to the President, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) dedicates her life to protecting and defending the public images of our nation's elite. After leaving the White House, the power consultant opened her own firm, hoping to start a new chapter -- both professionally and personally -- but she can't seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her staff, who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, can't quite fix the ones closest at hand -- their own.

While at times this show can be severely over acted, it's still a fun, light watch with interesting characters and enough serial plot lines carried through the episodes to hold your attention for a full season. And while (at least through the end of the first season) Pope is a little too defined by her connections to the president, I still think she's a rather powerful heroine. The show writers also do her justice by making her flawed because let's face it, nobody's perfect (especially in politics).

I used to really like this show. The first two seasons were really well done. Season three, it slipped a little. Season four was not good at all. I had hoped season five would right the ship, but having just watched the season finale, here's where I stand: And with that, I sign off this show. It has become an unwatchable combination of obnoxious and stomach-turning, without a single likable character -- White Hat, if you will -- remaining to redeem it.

Good writing and acting, but I can't find a single character to like. It seems like every person in the show is a lying, cheating, immoral, self-obsessed criminal. Being a simpleton, I'm more entertained when there's at least one character that I can relate to and/or root for. Not here, not at all. Yuck.
