As the cre­ator and head writer of Grey’s Anatomy and Pri­vate Prac­tice, Shonda Rhimes has a gold star when it comes to hook­ing view­ers and craft­ing com­pelling char­ac­ters and sto­ry­lines. Yet, peo­ple can get bored, even when they are on a good thing. Clearly tired of doc­tor jar­gon, Rhimes has upped the ante with this slick po­lit­i­cal thriller star­ring the lu­mi­nous Kerry Wash­ing­ton ( pic­tured, Django Un­chained) as fixer Olivia Pope. It’s a clever drama that isn’t afraid of a few soapie twists. Tonight, Olivia is caught in a me­dia storm af­ter Fitz’s ( Tony Gold­wyn) pick for Supreme Court Jus­tice is caught hav­ing an af­fair. This is one se­ries that will re­port­edly get even bet­ter with time.
