I'm surprised that a lot of people disliked Empire. I think it's currently one of my favourites.

It's a very raw show, which makes it stand out from a lot of the others. Each of the characters have a personality that makes you love them and despise them at the same time. The amazing music in the show is a main factor that got me hooked in the first place, and the second season does not disappoint in that area.

Definitely something to watch if you haven't already.

After watching the pilot i was on the fence. I thought it was over the top, but there was enough there to get me to watch the next episode, and the next, and so on, until I was 100% on board the crazy/soapy/black version of 80s nighttime soaps like Dynasty and Falcon Crest. Now fast forward to season 2 and it has lost some of its magic. Why? Because I think the first episode of season 2 was simply them cramming every possible plot device into 42 minutes of airtime sans commercials. While it hasn't been as good as season 1, it is still entertaining and the same way my family sat around to watch Dallas, Dynasty, and Falcon Crest, they now sit around and watch Empire because it is this over the top soapy drama with a bit of "Oh my goodness, did they really just say that?" comedy thrown in. My only wish: stop the auto tune.

This family is like the old show 'Dallas' with Lucious as JR the guy you love to hate and then hate some more. The Lyon clan or rather the Lyon parents, Cookie and Lucious, give new meaning to the word dysfunction. It is feral the way that they bite each other and tear each other down. Empire has a great cast, who are all multitalented, especially musically. It manages to have ironic humor whilst being realistic and gritty. Great depiction of the lifestyle of a music mogul from the hood. If you like shows full of drama and great cliffhangers then this show is for you.

Season 1 was amazing and Season sone of those season that you have to keep watching every single episode. However, a lot of peoples it's corny but you have to watch Season 1 first and Season 2 and judge for yourself. I believe the show is based of a money hungry family because when you have a lot of money you have the power to do anything. The music is amazing, it has a variety of genres from Hip Hop, Pop, Soul and so much more. It's also funny to see the funny memes people make after every episode and that's another thing to look for to do while I wait for Empire Wednesdays.
