McNamara's Picks: 'Scandal,' 'Family Tree,' 'Elementary'
"Scandal": Shonda Rhimes' whacked-out buzzfest of a political drama comes to a much-fanticipated close after its first full season (it debuted as a mid-season replacement.) As super-sleuth and super-stylin' D.C. power-fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) continues her on-again/off-again (currently very much on) affair with the perpetually lovesick President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) -- your tax dollars at work! -- she and her fellow gladiators are also desperate to reveal the traitor passing state secrets out of the White House directly to terrorists. And the right one this time, please--when they previously, and wrongly, accused the CIA director, he wound up dead.
