I’ve tried to cut down on my TV watching hours in general, for a tad bit more financial freedom and more time to focus on getting my crap together. I even cut cable completely out and just have Hulu and Netflix accounts. But maaaan– I got sucked in to EMPIRE as soon as the pilot aired.
It encompasses a ton of issues in society today – Physical health issues, mental health issues, entrepreneurship, show business, homosexuality, family issues, mixed raced couples – It has everything that I love. Plus add in the endless drama, MUSIC, sexy men, suspense.. and more – and no wonder why it’s THIS SEASON’S HOTTEST SHOW! It may not be 100% politically correct, but it’s entertaining as hell.
SO if you haven’t watched it yet or are behind… GET CAUGHT UP!! GET IN THE LOOP!
Here’s a few quick reasons why you should:
*may contain spoilers*
1. Jamal is sexy, bold, and can sing his heart out.
“I do what I want and say what I want with no apologies.”
His bro can rap, too.
Plus- this is how Jamal came out to the world (especially to his father):
2. Don’t mess with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson)
She’s a bad bitch. I love her.
“The streets ain’t made for everybody — that’s why they made sidewalks.”
But she’s loyal to her family, and always wants the best for them.
3. Did I mention Cookie and Lucious used to star together?
4. Guest stars!
Courtney Love, Naomi Campbell, Raven Symone, & SNOOP just to name a few that have already shown their faces. Who could be next?
Okay- So I won’t go into too many more reasons WHY you should watch it. But if you like hip-hop/rap at all and great television – then here’s HOW TO:
1. TURN IT ON!
4. TUNE IN WEDNESDAY!
