I love her and Olivia.

i love liv too....the show illustrates that ppl arent all good and all bad and i love that as powerful as liv is in her professional life, her personal life is messy, like a lot of ppl...nobody is perfect

Thank you! This has to be my favorite concept about this show is that they make real mistakes. No character can escape criticism. 

Huck is my favorite character.

My answer is she is a realistic, to a point, portrayal of WOC.  The reason why is I know a number of women who are doing major things in their professional lives but when it comes to their personal life, it makes me shake my head.  Now based on what I read about this Olivia Pope character, apparently she makes decision that would flabbergast a person on the outside looking in, but she relates to those who are currently, former, or soon to be mistresses.  She has her good points and she has her bad points.  To me, it makes her human.

They are really going hard to secure the 18-49 female demographic on one end (sex and the power) and the 18-49 male demographic on the other (comic books).




Don't forget Mistresses. They have my demographic and my My weeknights locked up.

I'm not okay with every WOC on tv being freakin mary-poppins with a finger-snapping sassy black woman twist. I'm not here for boring shows about boring people doing regular boring ish.

I can go outside for real life situations.
