This show is about Michelle, a Las-Vegas show girl who gets married to a boring middle-aged man after getting pretttty drunk one night. She then moves into his home, only to find out he lives with his mother (played by Kelly Bishop aka Baby’s mother in Dirty Dancing). His mother, Fanny runs a dance studio for young girls learning ballet and it’s here we are introduced to four young students eager to succeed in the world of ballet. You can pretty much see where the story line is going from here on in, Michelle begins working in the dance studio with Fanny. It’s a fun light-hearted show to watch if you like seeing things going terribly wrong and then working out in the end.

Scandal stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a former White House Communications director who now runs her own ‘crisis management’ firm. She is better known as a ‘fixer’, someone who fixes people’s problems before the problems ruin their whole lives. In fact, much of her staff are those ‘fixed people’ who now work for her. Now because this show is created by Shonda Rhimes, expect romance to be in the air. And that kind of annoys me. Actually it’s probably gonna wreck my head. I was hoping Olivia to be hard as nails a la Saga Norén from Broen but low and behold she’s in love with the President himself. Scandal in itself eh? It’s a grand aul drama and I’m not gonna really look into it too much because of Shonda’s past catalogue of shows including Greys Anatomy and Private Practice. But Kerry’s pretty sweet to look at, and it’s stars Desmond from Lost so I’m happy out for now!
