Guilty Pleasures: I’m Live-Tweeting #Shondaland Thursdays!

Antibiotics + intermittent drowsiness + procrastination = more procrastination! 😀

Since I’m not making the progress that I’d like on my next books, I’m just going to revel in the premieres of Shondaland‘s new Thursday night lineup. And I’ll be live-tweeting about it!

One of my guilty pleasures is the show Scandal, by the indomitable Shonda Rhimes. While Season 3 left me mostly underwhelmed (I only watched to see the incomparable Joe Morton as Daddy Pope; Khandi Alexander as Mama Pope; Bellamy Young when she was “Moonshine Mellie”; and Secret Service Tom), I’m hoping that Season 4 will bring back the reasons why I got into the show in the first place (R.I.P. His Ginghamness, Harrison).

I am also hyped to see the new show, How To Get Away With Murder, with the wonderfulness that is Viola Davis (and I am SO happy not to see her play a maid or a sidekick, I don’t know what to do. WINNING!). This show also stars Alfred Enoch (who played Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter movies–and he has grown up quite nicely! My,my. 😀 ) and Matt McGorry (who played the Corrections Officer/inmate babydaddy with the prosthetic leg on Orange is the New Black).

Grey’s Anatomy, which I sincerely hope is in its last season, also has a season premiere tonight. Christina Yang was my favorite character (it used to be Miranda Bailey, but her character has become so neutered, I had to move on), and she’s gone now. I do admit to a bit of curiosity as to how ridiculous the plot lines will get (a secret love child by former Chief of Surgery Richard Webber and the late Ellis Grey? Really? *side eye*). However, I hope that the show gets put out to pasture by the last episode.

All that being said: I usually post on my personal Facebook page, along with my fellow Gladiators, about Scandal. Tonight, though, I”m going to live-tweet for ALL THREE SHOWS. The snark, the shade, the WTF and OMG moments…I’ll be giving it to you in 140 characters or less. 😀

If you haven’t done so already (and what are you waiting for?), follow me on Twitter at @Tiffscribes, and join the #Shondaland party on Thursdays. It’s going to be fun!

As always, thanks for stopping by.
