There are 101 reasons why Scandal is the best cable television show on air right now, and a surprising number of them have to do with food. For your convenience, we compiled a few of these reasons here. Enjoy, and feel free to pick up a bottle of red wine as you read.
1. Liv knows popcorn is an acceptable dinner.
Don’t listen to the haters, Liv… *cough* Jake *cough*. Popcorn is a fully balanced meal. I mean, pretty much.
2. She loves wine almost as much as we do.
She loves an excellent red. And who doesn’t? It’s good for you, and your soul.
3. Maybe even more than we do.
It’s a cure-all for her stressful life.
4. Okay, definitely more than we do.
No judgment here.
5. Every scene with the President.
Okay, this doesn’t really have anything to do with food. But look at those eyes. Come on. It’s enough to make anyone lose their appetite. Or get really hungry. Idk.
It’s not a real restaurant in DC, but if Olivia Pope likes it, then we like it too. Plus, it has the word “burger” in it. How can you go wrong?
7. Intense scenes around the dinner table.
Dinner is something other than popcorn? That’s when you know shit’s going down.
8. She always looks perfect.
All that wine and absolutely no weight gain. Teach me your ways, O Flawless One.
Now, go drool over Scandal Thursday, 9/24 at 9 pm EST on ABC.
