What a year to remember. The 2013-2014 film season will undoubtedly go down as a highlight for black TV and film. Lupita Nyong’o won her Oscar as did Steve McQueen, as a producer for “12 Years a Slave,” and John Ridley for penning that movie’s screenplay.
So much has happened this past year and like many headlines, my year was filled with laughs and cries, yet I’m still here and very grateful (doesn’t that sound like a pulpit testimony?). Hey, the way I see it, we survived 2012 and will apparently make it out of 2013 OK, too.
Happy Jueves mi gente! I know I drive you all a bit loco with my Thursday “Scandal” watching obsession, but tonight is the winter finale entitled, “A Door Marked Exit.”
Last week, “Scandal” fans were shocked by the revelation that Olivia’s mother, Maya, was a terrorist. But the most haunting moments were Huck torturing Quinn by pulling out her teeth. The dental duo, Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes, shared what it was like to film the intense scenes, how this week’s midseason finale will top it, and […]
The network will air 18 episodes instead of 22 of the Shonda Rhimes drama’s third season.

Best of all, the episode finally put a fork in the word “YOLO.” [xfinity-record-button id=”7006536282234113112″ program_type=”series”] How […]
Don’t you love it when one of your favorite movies comes on and you’re able to curl up and enjoy it? That’s what happened to me last night when I discovered that “All About Eve” was on RetroPlex.
“Scandal” was something else last night! And Olivia Pope’s mother, Maya Lewis, is serious. She’s being kept in a maximum security facility that resembles something Hannibal Lecter was caged in during “The Silence of the Lambs.” Apparently her husband, who she calls Eli, but the secretive B-613 knows him as Rowan, felt her actions warranted […]
This week’s “Scandal” showed that, like the rest of us, Olivia Pope has seen “The Notebook.” It also highlights one of the show’s dominant themes: the fantasy of an idealized “Cosby Show” domesticity, which none of the characters have ever achieved. Every time one of them gets close, he or she consciously or unconsciously does […]
Notice anything different about Olivia Pope’s look this season on “Scandal”?
