    Empire- Hip Hop Dynasty

    This is my new favorite show (Until Game of Thrones is back)
    Anybody else watching?
    I think this show is going to be huge.

    It's drama.
    Here's how Wiki describes it
    Based in part on William Shakespeare's King Lear and James Goldman's The Lion in Winter,[4] the show centers around a hip hop music and entertainment company, Empire Enterprises, and the drama among the members of the founders' family as they fight for control of the company. The hour-long family drama was created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, and stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson.
    The music is pretty good too.

    Here's the preview for it.

    We love this show in my house! Finally, a show that blends music that isn't trite and schmaltzy.

    Cookie for the win!

    Does anybody know who that was singing at the funeral? I know she somebody, I just can't place her.

    Cuba gooding was on. Geez, he still looks good.
    Mrs bitchy naomi Campbell was on too and she's a cougar. LOL it took me a minute to figure out who she was.

    I really love the storyline with the gay son. He's handsome, a great singer and he should be the star, but dad won't do it bc he is gay. I love how cookie supports him. It was pretty intense when dad went to see him.

    I also like the fact that the other son is bipolar. His wife is nutty.

    I watched the first episode, but missed the last two. I just caught up last night. Wow, I love this show! I don't watch many dramas, but this and How to get Away with Murder, I really love.

    I love Jamal, and Cookie. That other boy needs help. I'm also going to need Becky to drop the blond wigs. Not becoming. At all.

    I missed Cuba's appearance.

    Jamal has talent, and he's a cutie. I saw a picture of him naked. Not bad at all.

    Hakeem's hair bothers me. It's the old "kid and play" hairstyle. I'm not sure exactly what you call it. High top?

    I think the bipolar son knows that dad killed the uncle.

    We were oddly touched the other night when Boo Boo Kitty - that's what we call her cuz we're Team Cookie here - shaved him after finding out about the ALS. That was a touching moment.

    And, yeah, that hairstyle makes me nuts, too.

    When Jamal came out...that was amazing. I loved the fact that all his family gave him the thumbs up (well except dad)
    When he was playing with his daughter.....

    I have to say- the bipolar brother's storyline is really pulling me in. They have made him the most complex person on the show. When he was sitting in the recording studio with the gun to his head- it actually made me hold my breath. The pain on his face was prefect.

    My daughter asked me if Courtney Love was really a singer.

    Boo Boo Kitty- a real bitch.

    Boo Boo Kitty!

    I love Cookie's interaction with Hakeem's new girlfriend. The whole Yoko Ono comment had me

    God, I love, love, love this show. It's so exceptionally well written and well acted.

    Ha. I'm sure nobody is watching this show for Terrence. If anything, we're waiting for his smackdown.

    I watch for moments like this

    "Even from hoes who hire skanks to spy on me in Jesus's name
    Amen
    "

    I love cookie, but the bipolar son deserves an award for his acting.

    OMG, wasn't he amazing last night? And the way the boys defused him in the elevator? Fantastic stuff.

    Couple of things.

    http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/...ry?id=29510347

    Jussie Smollet - Jamal - came out on Ellen. Well, I think he's been out forever, but he confirmed it. I saw the interview. He was delightful. I love him even more now. What a great, stand up kid with a super supportive mom. :awesome:

    And, more importantly...



    WTF, Lucious! Why, Lola???? Can't you let anything good thrive!?? I fucking hate you! I hated you before and I hate you even more now!

    OMG!

    This is exactly why I thought (think) you're older than you claim.

    Come on Ron. I grew up in the 80's. Who hasn't seen the movie House Party? Ha. I think they even had a cartoon out.



    Empire was so good the other night. I can't wait for the 2 hour finale.

    Jussie and yazz were on America Idol the other night. Jazz starts out kind of scratchy, but once Jussie joins him he kicks ass. It's amazing how good they are together versus when they sing apart.

    That was a great season finale.

    I get the feeling they switched the ending when they realized Empire was a huge hit. There were parts in the last hour that felt a little stitched together so the show could continue next season.

    I died when Hakeem and Anika were caught. I'm still waiting for the paramedics. How could they...eww! I'm team Lucious. He may be scum, but at least he tried to clean up his act. They killed Vernon!

    That duet between Lucious and Jamal...wow
    Patti Labelle and Jamal

    Cookie showed just how smart she ISN'T this episode.
