Random Fandom Thought #394

Loved this week’s episode of Scandal. I know what I’m about to say is cross-fandom, but Cyrus and The Comedian [Watchmen]* have something in common– they both gave no flips about killing a pregnant woman. Mellie needs to relax and tread lightly.

* Well… The Comedian did it because a heffa ‘called him out’ and scratched his face. She should have known who she was dealing with. But that’s another fandom thought for different time.


Check out more of the amazing Facebook Scandal character updates made by Gladiator whoareyouandwhyshouldicare to see why Tony Goldwyn finds one of them GENIUS! Whoareyouandwhyshouldicare, this is amazingly hilarious! Keep them coming girl!

Olitz fandom is so passionate

 I had always wondered are the other fandoms outside of Kerry, Tony & Olitz from this show as aggressive with pics, gifs, footage & creating posters, etc. and after clicking on these other fandom tags, it was interesting to see that they aren’t.

Top TV

Pick your 5 shows before answering the following questions:
1. West Wing

2. Gilmore Girls

3. Parks and Rec

4. Scandal

5. The Office

1. Who is your favorite character in 2?

2. Who is your least favorite character in 1? Well….Kate wasn’t a particularly interesting character for me, so I’m going to go with that.

3. What’s your favorite episode of 4?
“The Lawn Chair” jumped to mind right away.

4. What’s your favorite season of 5?
I would say 3 or 4

5. What’s your favorite relationship in 3?
The obvious would be Leslie and Ben (which I love), but I’m going to say Leslie and April.

6. Who is your anti-relationship in 1? Don’t really have one. Zoe and Jean Paul I guess

7. How long have you watched 4? I jumped in and as all caught up with past seasons midway through season 3. 

8. How did you become interested in 3?
Pretty much all my friends watched it 

 9. Who is your favorite actor in 2? I’ll say Melissa McCarthy

10. Which show do you prefer: 1, 4 or 5? It probably depends on my mood, but … West Wing.

11. Which show have you seen more episodes of? 1 or 3? Well I’ve seen all of both but West Wing had more episodes overall

12. If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be? Olivia Pope obviously. 

13. How would you kill off your favorite character in 1? What?! No. I guess after they’ve lived a long full life. 

14. Would a 2/3 crossover work? Haha yeah I think it would. The speed in which they all talk matches up pretty well. I think Rory would have been great in the briefing room. 

15. Pair two characters in 2 that would make an unlikely but strangely okay couple. Um im into Jess and Paris 

16. Overall, which show had a better cast: 3 or 5? Ooooo that’s hard but I’m gonna have to say Parks and Rec. 

17. Which show has a better soundtrack: 1, 4 or 5? I would say West Wing for the theme song alone, but Scandal has soon pretty good songs in it too.

Season 3 is rolling closer and it’s only 33 days away.

50 Things You Gotta Love About Scandal

Gladiators everywhere are experiencing full-on Scandal withdrawals and here’s 50 things you gotta love about the hit ABC prime-time series.

50. #AskScandal
From the cast tweeting live every Thursday to the amazing hashtags – #WhoShotFitz , #ComaTweet, #WhoisQuinnPerkins and #WhatTheHuck much of the excitement of the show is tweeting with viewers around the world. The fact that #Scandal trends on Twitter hours after each new episode wraps says a whole lot! (Oprah got caught up onto the show because of Twitter.) #GladiatorsROAR The cast’s interaction with the fans via the hashtag #AskScandal makes Scandal Thursday worthwhile and memorable. (Special shout-out to Josie - @outlawjoz! She’s the ultimate #Scandal hasthtag queen and here’s proof.) 

49. Scandal Thursday
Every Thursday night we get treated to a brand new episode of Scandal that rocks our world and throws out every prediction we had about what’s going to happen. We’re learn the hard way that anything truly is possible with each new episode.

48. Gladiators
Scandal fans call themselves Gladiators ever said Harrison Wright asked Quinn Perkins “You want to be a gladiator in a suit, you gotta say it.” Gladiators has made the Scandal experience worthwhile from the amazing fan fictions to the MVids to the expensive episode breakdown, podcasts, tweeting, meme, gifs, photo collages, and such.

47. Celebrity Gladiators

When Allyson Felix said at the London Olympics that she sent time catching up on Scandal in between training, Gladiators rejoice. Allyson got to be a one lucky Gladiator and visited the set. Shortly after that historical Scandal Olympics mention, Pink, Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade, Christian Keyes, Reagan Gomez, Candace Cameron Bure, Jenna Ushkowitz, Amber Riley, Tracie Thomas, Retta, Missy Elliott, Naomi Campbell, Roland Martin, Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec, and author Jaime Reed tweeted their obsession with the show as the latest Celebrity Gladiators. The day Oprah co-signed Scandal on Next Chapter took Celebrity Gladiators to a whole other level. (FYI: Oprah’s team Olitz!)

46. Eisenhower 48 Star Flag Pin

The rare Eisenhower 48 star flag pin that was Olivia’s something special Inauguration Gift to Fitz was touching. Fitz if you watched previous episodes prior to this flashback moment never took this pin off. Once worn by President Eisenhower Olivia won the flag pin in an auction and thought to give it to Fitz on his big day. The bloody pin that dropped on the floor of the ER triggered a steady stream of flashbacks for Olivia.
