Scandal is too scandalous for me

Scandal is too scandalous for me
I tried to be supportive, but the fact is, Scandal has just gotten too scandalous–and ridiculous–for me! For the entire first season, I’d never even seen the show.

After watching the PBS series “The African Americans,” like its title, so too, do I still have “many rivers to cross.” I am saddened by my ignorance of my history.
