"Talk about not being able to catch a break!"

Just look at the current standard-bearer: ABC's outrageous Scandal, with its whiplash plotting and rat-a-tat-tat dialogue delivered at such hyperspeed you don't have time to dwell on the berserk absurdities, because you're having such a blast.

Olivia Pope and her associates have done some shady things to protect their clients, but when one of their own is messed with, there's no limit to what they'll do to protect them — even if that ultimately means causing them pain.
That's what Scandal's resident smooth talker Harrison (Columbus Short) has been dealing with after having to plant information that David (Joshua Malina) had abused his former girlfriend in order to get Abby (Darby Stanchfield) to break up with him. But really, he was saving her life!
