Some colleagues introduced me to my lastest televised obsession, Scandal. It's basically the dark side of The West Wing, except this time by Shonda Rhimes and not Aaron Sorkin. Although it's not Sorkin, it's still fabulous and even features Joshua Malina, who played Will Bailey on the older show.

What happened was I watched all of the existing episodes of Scandal without pause. I loved every minute, but I'm now experiencing the familiar void that comes from not enjoying a suspenseful television show with smart, snappy dialogue on daily basis.

In a moment that spurred optimism, my new pal Robin told me about a show called The Following that we can enjoy obsessively together. I mean, together remotely via Hulu and texts. I did a little research and found that critics' reviews of this Kevin Bacon show are generally positive; however, it's scary and gory. I generally don't like gore, so this show might not be a great match.

There's nothing to do but learn the truth through the experience of watching it.

I've yet to watch this show, but it's on my list. Obviously I should have gotten this done already.

I want to recommend Family Tree. It's an HBO series. Watched one of them at my parents. One of my fave actors is in it. I forget his name right now.

I've watched the first five episodes of The Following and it's one of the most addictive and horrifying shows I've ever watched. Have u watched Orphan Black?
