“Scandal” finale: Underwhelming?
It was a good finale, says Samantha Highfill, but it wasn”t shocking at all. “I was able to walk away from the finale and sleep well, which just didn”t feel right to me, she says. “Look, I”m not saying it was a bad finale at all. I”m just saying that, if we”re talking purely about the shock factor that Scandal does so well, I was expecting more. But maybe that”s my own fault.” PLUS: “Scandal” is serving supreme inhumanity as delectable plot-twist tidbits, finale summed up everything that was wrong with Season 3, that last twist wasn”t that shocking, how women named Olivia Pope reacted to the finale, and Tony Goldwyn calls the finale his worst nightmare.

“Parenthood”s” Season 5 finale felt out of whack with the season as a whole
“'The Pontiac' is a ‘F*CK IT!” finale,” says By Todd VanDerWerff. “By that I mean that it has barely anything to do with the season that preceded it and hopes we don”t really pay attention to that fact. But on its own terms, as a wrap-up to some other, better season, it”s pretty terrific.” PLUS: That was a tearjerker, and “Parenthood” isn”t as good when given a full season.
