My husband and I are about halfway through season 2 and although it took me a few episodes into Season 1 to warm up to it, we like it.

Although the Olivia-President dynamic is soap opera-ish, I am interested to see what happens overall in the show. Anyone else watching?

YES! It is soap opera-ish, but in the best possible way. Kerry Washington is amazing.

OMG I'm absolutely obsessed with this show. I watched both seasons in one week over the summer. It's amazing, oh my goodness. It's SO soapy and kind of hilarious and ridiculous but still so good. I gasp so much during it. I'm obsessed with Olivia's wardrobe, with Huck, with everything. I think this might be one of the shows I recap on my blog. I cannot believe how season 2 ended and I cannot wait for the return!

I am obsessed too!! We are also halfway through season two. When Kerry Washington didn't win the Emmy my twitter page was PISSSED. My favorite was show creator, Shonda Rhimes, tweeted, "Gonna get some wine and some popcorn and put on my white pajamas and just be fierce all over my living room. #gladiatorsdontcry"

It made me LOL

HAHAH that's hilarious! I have to follow Shonda apparently. I want to be a gladiatorrrrr! I really thought Kerry would win, too. SO much excitement around her nowadays. Oh well, next time. I <3 her. She's so maddeningly beautiful and GOOD.

You guys, how do y'all feel about Jake? I like him for Oliva better than Fitz, who has become creepy stalkery and also seems like a terrible president. Scott Foley will be a regular this season so I'm curious to see where that goes.

100% Jake. I'm glad to hear he will be back. And I agree, Fitz has become just too creepy.

NINE MINUTES until we hopefully find out the truth about her father putting a possible hit on her and all the other stuff that makes us go whaaaa!

Holy hell, i love this show. Still catching up on season 2. Is it weird that i identify with some of the interpersonal story lines on this show... a lot?

Cyrus is AMAZING. I love how the show basically alternates between him and Olivia drinking wine together on the couch as besties and then trying to ruin each other's lives.

Yes! This is the most interesting part of the show, I think (besides my trying to find Olivia's clothes). You despise Cyrus one minute and then love him the next. It's craaaazy! How about when Charlie was in his room next to a drugged out James and Cyrus was like, "Is he dead?" like sort of calm? He is freaking nuts I love it. He has such great monologues too.

Can't wait for tonight! I hope Jake is let out of the hole soon. Poor hot guy, ever since JGarns dumped him he can't catch a break. :)

I think we are twins! I don't know how I'm going to handle just 1 episode per week now. I want all Olivia Pope all the time. Except for the redheaded lawyer chick (Abbie? What is her name?). I don't need so much of her and her judgy judginess.

I thought last night's episode was really great, but oh it was so sad. So f-ing sad! That poor mother! It's such a sad thought, that someone you love could do amazing things in the CIA or what have you but you can never know about it or worse you are convinced of the opposite. Wahhh. But at least they showed a lot of Teddy. He is adorbs.

So many crazy/awful things happened that I'm kind of pissed. Like, I love that the show is soapy, but now it's predictable, Soap Opera 101 levels of ridiculousness. This episode's revelations weren't original or creative at all. And I'm really f-ing pissed about the rape, because the majority of responses (from mainly men) were HEY she stopped fighting! She wanted it! She saw it was an opportunity for control! WHAAAAAT omg. I can't be mad at the show I guess for bringing to light all the shitty people in the world, but still. ugh.

Cyrus looked like the unabomber in those flashbacks.

Ha! And I loved that their way of making Mellie look younger was to give her reasonable hair and make it look like she wasn't wearing any makeup.
