Scandal S2

For all you Scandalistas out there who'll be suffering from Scandal withdrawal tonight, since the scheduled episode is a repeat, I thought you'd appreciate this 10-minute segment on MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry show, during which she and her panel of guests (Janet Mock, Andrea Plaid, Heather McGhee, and Joy-Ann Reid) had a little Scandal party, discussing the show, its star (Kerry Washington), the character she plays (Olivia Pope) and how she compares to other depictions of black women on screen, the show's creator (Shonda Rhimes), revelatory moments within it, and more.

The segment was taped during last weekend's episode of Melissa Harris-Perry. I'm sure many of you have already watched it; but if you haven't here ya go (don't say I've never done anything nice for you):
