Okay, I keep seeing this criticism and wanted to clear things up for people who clearly didn’t watch it:

Yes, this video is problematic. But at least criticize it after actually watching it or at least researching it more?

"I swear to every heaven ever imagined,
if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster
tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare
from the grave so he can tell them every reason
why he wishes he were born in a time where
he could have a damn Gmail account.
The day after I taught my mother
how to send pictures over Iphone she texted
me a blurry image of our cocker spaniel ten times in a row.
Don’t you dare try to tell me that that is not beautiful.
But whatever, go ahead and choose to stay in
your backwards-hoping-all-inclusive club
while the rest of us fall in love over Skype.
Send angry letters to state representatives,
as we record the years first sunrise so
we can remember what beginning feels like when
we are inches away from the trigger.
Lock yourself away in your Antoinette castle
while eat cake and tweet to the whole universe that we did.
Hashtag you’re a pretentious ass hole.
Van Gogh would have taken 20 selflies a day.
Sylvia Plath would have texted her lovers
nothing but heart eyed emojis when she ran out of words.
Andy Warhol would have had the worlds weirdest Vine account,
and we all would have checked it every morning while we
Snap Chat our coffee orders to the people
we wish were pressed against our lips instead of lattes.
This life is spilling over with 85 year olds
rewatching JFK’s assassination and
7 year olds teaching themselves guitar over Youtube videos.
Never again do I have to be afraid of forgetting
what my fathers voice sounds like.
No longer must we sneak into our families phonebook
to look up an eating disorder hotline for our best friend.
No more must I wonder what people in Australia sound like
or how grasshoppers procreate.
I will gleefully continue to take pictures of tulips
in public parks on my cellphone
and you will continue to scoff and that is okay.
But I hope, I pray, that one day you will realize how blessed
you are to be alive in a moment where you can google search
how to say I love you in 164 different languages."

Ladies, ladies, ladies. Some of you may have wandered into Shondaland thinking that they were going to break new ground, it was going to be a new and exciting type of show. Beautiful Kerry Washington in the lead! Heretofore washed-up-90s-film-star but still-very-handsome-white-guy-with-great-hair as her co-star! Smart woman in charge! Political intrigue! “Color-blind” casting!

But then, sadly, we see that the one hallmark of our beloved Shonda is her ability to rip defeat from the jaws of victory. I have seen this movie before (GA) and I have suffered the slings and arrows of remaining with it. Seasons 3.5 to 5 were dark days indeed.

Part of what cratered GA in those days was an inability to let her lead grow and change, to mature. To remain a petulant, selfish young woman in the face of an unusual and (at first) all-consuming love. I’ve read that it wasn’t until Rhimes had the chance to re-watch the early seasons during the writers’ strike of S5 before she realized what she had wrought.

We will have no such luxury with Scandal. Though maybe someone can convince her to watch those first roughly 20 episodes, to understand again why we were attracted to Fitz, to Olivia, even to Huck and Quinn, to see that they had, at one time, admirable attributes despite some questionable actions. The characters she has drawn are now merely CARICATURES of human beings. There is not one believable flesh-and-blood character left in this lot. Not to mention the B613 nonsense has no logical conclusion because it was over-the-top insanity from the start.

That said, I don’t have the time nor the inclination to point out the obvious failings of this particular episode, but I will go on record that I needed a Silkwood-bath after nearly watching that Quinn/Huck (Quick?) sex. That was an abomination.
