DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Monday - SCAN­DAL, Chan­nel 7, 9.15pm

SO if it’s fluffy fun you want — and it would be— here it is. It’s Wash­ing­ton DC cri­sis man­age­ment with­out the rev­er­ence for the Oval Of­fice The West Wing got bogged down in. Of course, it doesn’t have the same weighty feel that had, but this is from Grey’s Anat- omy/Pri­vate Prac­tice cre­ator Shonda Rhimes. Yes, there’s ban­ter, but it’s not funny. She’s not good with com­edy, we al­ready know that. The star is Olivia Pope (Kerry Wash­ing­ton, pic­tured), who with her ador­ing satel­lites deals with the cri­sis du jour. The big se­ries cri­sis in­volves the Pres­i­dent, who she used to work for. Some drama there.
