There are a few phases to being a "Scandal" fan. First, you fall in love with Olivia's wardrobe. Then you experience the false sensation that "Scandal" is never on or is always a rerun. And the third stage, when you start to notice that you recognize everyone on the show from somewhere else. And it's not just that the actors have popped up somewhere before, it's that practically everybody involved with Olivia Pope and Associates (with a couple of exceptions) has appeared in at least one show in a very specific and limited set of six.
