Liked this from the very first episode...from the acting to the music .. big thumbs up from me... can't help but adore Cookie ..so looking forward to the second season hope they will increase the episodes .. 12 episodes is just not enough for me.

I watched only the pilot and it was not my jam. I don't get the love for the show. The nuance, as it was, had all the subtlety of a neon peacock. The writers felt like you were the dumbest viewer on the planet, re-explaining what " going public" meant at least 15 times. Every aspect of the show except for the character of cookie came off as some kind of trope.I wanted to like it i just cannot imagine the worm really turning for me.

Empire is a drama series about the music business; in particular about one family who owns a label company... Empire. The characters are well cast and the script is original. This drama is unique, the characters are well developed and the music surrounding this label is awesome. What would you do to be a "King". How much are you willing to take, beg, borrow, steal and burn to take back what is yours?

I fell in love with Empire from the pilot episode. It differs from your average singing tv shows like Glee, Smash, and other predecessors. The music is fantastic but the storyline itself is original and exciting. While I will admit the 2nd and current season is not as great as the first, they keep developing ways to keep the show going. I love the character development and the various issues the show touches on from homosexuality to religion to family values, this show has it all.

I really love this show. People have been telling me for quite a while that I needed to be watching Empire. I really wanted to, but I wanted to devote the respect and energy towards watching it. OMGosh! It's so amazing! The characters (especially Cookie) are so much fun to watch. The drama never ends! And so much rawness with the characters, so surface shit at all. I love the mostly black cast - much needed on prime-time television. If you haven't starting watching this show - stop what you are doing immediately - call in sick to work & binge watch this show!
