While the wheeling and dealing and fast-talking that are the staples of the show Scandal are fascinating in and of themselves, what's most striking about the show is how race is simultaneously discussed and not discussed at all.
There are some TV shows that I can't do anything but watch. While there are some I can have on while I pay my bills/send emails/play Fruit Ninja, there are others that require my undivided attention. You know what I mean. One of those shows is 'Scandal.'
