What is D.C. Councilman Marion Barry doing during his recovery from a brief diabetes-related hospitalization? Catching up on a popular D.C.-based TV show.

"Anybody else watching Scandal? What a great show!" he tweeted Thursday night, the day after returning home to rest.

About an hour later, the former mayor directed a protest at show creator Shonda Rhimes: "A 3 week hiatus is scandalous! Can you tell I really like this show?!"

Commiserating with followers, Barry tweeted he planned to "play catch up on demand" on all the old episodes over the weekend. But, he added: "Then what?!?!?!"
