Scandal is back!

Hello Scandal watchers! (Or as Kerry Washington might say, Hey Gladiators!)

As some of you may know, Thursday night marked the second season’s premiere of ABC’s Scandal. The show is based on expert crisis manager, Judy Smith. Smith is known for advising celebrity clients such as Monica Lewinsky and Michael Vick. Of course Scandal is much more dramatic compared to Smith’s average day, however, according to her website the show “revolves around the life and work of a professional fixer.”

Smith is also author of the book, Good Self, Bad Self: Transforming Your Worst Qualities Into Your Biggest Assets. In the book she describes seven characteristics that are recognized at the core of a crisis. They are:

  1. Ego
  2. Denial
  3. Fear
  4. Ambition
  5. Accomodation
  6. Patience
  7. Indulgence

I am interested to see how these traits relate to an emergency situation. I am also looking forward to another intense season of the show, which airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.

What did you think of the first episode?
