The Great Fall TV Cram, 2013 Edition: 10 Shows to Catch Up On Now
Scandal
Season 3 premieres Thursday, October 3 at 10pm on ABC

COMMITMENT: Two seasons, 29 hour-long episodes. That’s not the tiniest of workloads, but once you get going, you’ll burn through it in a heartbeat. 
WHY YOU SHOULD CATCH UP NOW: Scandal was the most buzzed-about drama on broadcast TV last season, and with good reason. Shonda Rhimes has been making pulpy, populist shows about women blurring the lines between their professional and personal lives for more than a decade, but Scandal is that to the highest degree. Kerry Washington’s Olivia Pope is a D.C. fixer who can’t fix her own life, including her relationship with the President of the United States, not to mention the slew of political emergencies and conspiracies that unspool in a rapid succession and involve everything from election-rigging to murder. It’s all as ridiculous as it sounds, but also completely enthralling.
CHEAT SHEET: One of the great things about Scandal is that it’s broken down into serialized mini-arcs: 7 episodes in the first season, and then two separate stories of thirteen and 9 episodes, respectively, in Season 2. The show is still feeling around in the dark a little in Season 1, so if you’re pressed for time, just watch the pilot and the finale and then jump to Season 2. The first half of Season 2 is a riot. You won’t be disappointed. —Cory
