And we've even gotten episodes covering the exact same plot developments from a different character's point of view. Sort of like the unwatchable "Tailies" episodes that did nothing but kill time on "Lost."
I used to greatly enjoy "Scandal." Now, I don't really care if Huck survives his gunshot wounds last week — and he's one of the least annoying characters on the show.
"Scandal" has completely outlived its usefulness.
