Top 5 TV Shows Of 2013: Kelly's List
3. ScandalKnowing that some shows rise and fall over the course of their run, I feel particularly appreciative in how much I'm enjoying Scandal right now while itís on the rise. And that can be said for both the tail end of Season 2, which aired earlier this year, and the first half of the third season, which has been keeping us on the edge of our seats and our jaws dropping on a weekly basis over the last few months. Whatís working so beautifully with Scandal right now is how evenly the show is paced, despite the tension being at an almost constant boil.
Scandal knows when to simmer and it knows when to charge forward toward the next dramatic scenario. While Olivia and Fitzís relationship remains a driving force in the drama, the series doesn't rely entirely on that will-they-wont-they roller coaster, which is a good thing, as it makes almost every arc well worth anticipating. We donít just tune in for the romance, we tune in for the chaos, the scandals and the incredible emotional moments ó holy Mellie this season!ó and we tune in because we just have to know whatís going to happen next. Thatís what drama can be when itís great, and right now, Scandal is great.
