Public Service Announcement:

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

I was just getting over my virus when I got slammed with strep throat. I have been sick for about 3 weeks now and it's getting really old. But it did give me time to catch up on my dvr. Oh sweet dvr, I love that I get to watch shows I like when I actually have time.

But that's where this post comes in.

I know how much I love Scandal- I'm sure a lot of y'all watch it too. I love it. The entire show is interesting and I can't wait to see what happens with Fitz and Olivia or Jake and Olivia. But here is the thing- It is NEVER okay to sleep with a married man/ woman. Affairs are really terrible. They ruin lives and the people that are involved get hurt somehow. I know it's hard to think about- but in real life being "the other woman" is not really something to be proud of.
I know it's just a show, but I'm afraid it is glorifying affairs and essentially ripping apart families.(Maybe not that extreme- but how many woman can associate with olivia?)
I can honestly say I have been wanting Fitz and Olivia to end up together, but after the episode with Fitz playing hide and seek with his little one and Mellie coming in to get her stuff,  I actually felt a little guilty.
So what do you think?

  1. That's what that show is about? Oh good lord, no thank you. I'll stick to my comic book shows, lol. From a legal standpoint, having an affair is nothing to glamorize or promote. I've seen it destroy families. Even ones without children, it is devastating. And no matter how slick the other party thinks they are, they never get away with it.
    What's amusing to me is Hollywood has always made it seem like if you are the "Other Woman" somehow the man is going to leave his wife eventually and marry her...like the "other woman" is a soulmate. When in reality, it's always about sex. Point blank period. It's just downright gross, really. Hahahaha.

  2. I've actually never watched the show but I have heard interesting opinions about it. I'm still on the fence about watching it.

  3. I feel the same about Scandal. I think it's pretty ick that he cheated on his wife and that Olivia is fine with it. I'd prefer her with Jake ;)

  4. Blehhhhhh, I agree. After finding out what happened to Mellie when her and Fitz were so young and first married, I have virtually no sympathy for Fitz and what he wants. AND losing her son? Get it together, Fitz.
