Does Olivia Pope Drink Too Much Wine?

What is it with TV show Scandal’s creator, Shonda Rhimes and Olivia Pope’s constant consumption of wine every time she looks to be winding down. Does anyone think that Shonda Rhimes is sending a message to the fans with Olivia Pope’s love for wine or perhaps Olivia will become an alcoholic in future episodes. As a fan, I feel that this is totally overdone.
In the last episode, the last thing we saw was Olivia’s wine glass with red wine spilled all over her beloved couch. That would have to be a first. The fans have never seen Ms Pope spill her wine, and especially when Olivia insists on weariing the color white most days. How is it that she manages to stay clean and her clothes blindingly white. Because I love to wear white, and it never stays bright and white for any longer than around 12 hours, and that’s assuming I wear it that long.
Another thing I want to mention is the glass that Ms Pope drinks her red wine from. Has anyone noticed that it is the exact same glass, every single time. And did you also know that fans are going crazy for that wine glass and all want one. It’s just like the scrubs on Grey’s Anatomy. All the fan wanted the scrubs that Meredith, Cristina, McDreamy or Burke wore in the beginning. I guess they wanted the other doctors scrubs too, but let’s face it, the four docs above were the most popular.
And last but not least, fans can buy this wine glass at Crate and Barrel, whatever that place is? I have never heard of it. If you are lucky you might even find these glasses on Ebay.

About What's On The Box?

What's On The Box is a newish site that was created for lovers of TV. We cover scripted series, newsworthy issues and documentaries. Nothing regarding TV is off limits, however we will never, ever discuss reality TV.

This blog is an open forum for all TV fans who want to read about their favourite TV shows and share their opinions with other like minded TV fans. If you believe your favourite show is a must see TV show, then let us know about it.

Everyone who visits this site is welcome to have their say by posting their own article, photos or videos. Talk about the TV shows you love or tell us about the shows that you think suck and should not be on TV. Drop us a line via the contact form or jump on our Facebook page and send us a message. Our writers are more than welcome here to share their opinions as honestly as they like, however all we ask is that everyone is respectful of other poster's opinions'.

I started this blog to discuss the TV shows I love, so rather than make a site for each individual TV show, it made sense to make one for all of them. I do manage a Grey's Anatomy blog which is quite popular. If you are interested in writing at Grey's Anatomy Addicts, drop me a line via the contact box or on the Grey's Facebook page. Anyone who contribute to this site or any of my other blogs, gets their own byline and link to their website.

Obviously I and the writers who contribute to this site are going to talk about the TV shows they love the best, this is why we would love everyone to contribute, even if all you want to do is leave a comment requesting spoilers on your favourite TV show that we do not cover.

Lately a lot of the articles and discussion have been about Person of Interest and most importantly the recent news that CBS have cancelled this excellent show. There is also a campaign happening to save this show and convince Netflix or another TV Network to pick up POI. If you are interested in this, let us know so we can let you know how you can join the campaign.

We are now beginning to add articles and discussions regarding other shows. Recently an article was added via Spoiler TV about The CW's, the 100 and the recent death of the character, Lexa. The creator of The 100 recently reached out to the Clexa fans to talk about the death of the character. This article was shared on What's On The Box, just the other day.

We have some excellent reviews coming up that are being posted courtesy of the Spoiler TV reviewers of various shows. And we also have a couple of articles currently being written about The Walking Dead, Scandal, The Catch (Shonda Rhime's new show) and The Family.

So whether you are fans of Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Scandal, Chicago PD, The Night Shift, Supernatural; just to name a few. If you would like us to include you favourite show on this site, just let us know.

Stay tuned for further updates on what's coming up on your favourite TV shows and if we miss something that you would like to know about, please let us know.

Goodbye Private Practice


It was highly likely that when Kate Walsh announced that it was her intention to leave that Private Practice would be axed. Instead of ABC ordering the usual twenty two episodes, they went for thirteen, this was probably done to get an idea of ratings and to make a decision based on what the show was making in advertising. Shonda Rhimes, announced via an interview that Private Practice would finish and that episode thirteen would be their last. The last hurrah for the characters at Seaside Wellness was a really great finale. No big death, or tragedy that Shonda Rhimes is famous for on Grey’s Anatomy, just a well rounded wrap up for her characters.

Shonda Rhimes wrote on her website that she had never ended a TV show before, so she was in unfamiliar territory. However for someone who has no experience in writing a Series Final, she did extremely well. It probably helped that she likely had fair warning that Private Practice would not continue after Kate Walsh left. And one wonders if Kate saw it coming and jumped ship, but she has other irons in the fire so to speak; so this is unlikely. Shonda had the time to dedicate to giving the series, Grey’s Anatomy’s spin off a fitting ending. 

Would Private Practice gone onto good or better ratings without Kate Walsh, and had they gotten the twenty-two episode, they would have been minus Benjamin Bratt too; as Addison and Jake married in the Finale, so if Addison left Seaside then Jake would surely have to follow. Or would she have gone a different way and broke up the couple, leaving Addie to ride off into the sunset with Henry. Who knows? And it’s all speculation; Private Practice would likely have tanked without the lead character. 

The other actors are great, but none of them really had enough popularity among viewers to carry the show. Kadee Strickland is one character that comes to mind to take over Kate’s role as lead actress, because she is popular with the fans and absolutely, stunningly, beautiful. Many Grey’s Anatomy fans would have tuned out, because of Addison. She was popular on Grey’s Anatomy and many fans of that show wanted her to stay and get together with Mark (McSteamy) Sloan or Alex. 

So it’s goodbye to one of my favourite medical shows, and I will just have to get the rest of the seasons on DVD and watch them when ever I want a fix of Addison Montgomery magic or just want to perve on Jake Riley; what a hottie. 

What do you think? Would you love another network to pick up Private Practice or do you think it’s time to say goodbye.

I am really surprised to realise how much I miss Private Practice. Now that the last episode has gone to air; and it’s not on TV anymore; I really miss Addison Montgomery and her friends. I loved Kate Walsh in that role, and she is terrific actress, so I am hoping she will be on my TV on something good soon. 

Hopefully she will come back to Seattle Grace to stir up things with some of the characters there, now that would be entertaining and she can bring her new husband too, Benjamin Bratt is obscenely gorgeous. After six years Private Practice has ended. More than a month ago now; the final Private Practice episode was aired in the United States.
