Review of Empire

Empire is described as a unique family drama set in the world of a hip-hop empire. It centers on Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), a charismatic, savvy music superstar who is about to take his company, Empire Entertainment, public. Raised on the streets, he has never backed away from a fight and will resort to any measures, fair or foul, to defend his beloved Empire.

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!

Fantastic review, couldn't agree more! :) I've been doing the same, waiting for the perfect time when I have all my attention to watch it, mainly because Taraji P. Henson is one of my all time favourite actresses, she's incredible and the way she talks about Cookie in interviews, she has so much love for all the characters and actors...Henson needed a show where she could shine and completely be the centre of it all and I am so happy she has that as she has so many layers to show.

I was so upset when she left Person of Interest because she played my favourite character but now, after seeing clips of her in Empire I can understand why she left, who would pass up being Cookie? Thanks again for reminding me that I really need to watch this, soon! :)
