so lets talk about empire.
now before i go in,
i have no issues with the actors on the show.
everyone is doing an amazing job with the script they have been given.
my issue is…
…2 episodes left and i’m still trying to figure out the point?
last season we knew what was happening as it went on,
but this season just seems like a bunch of thrown together scene vomit.
i will admit that this past episode was slightly better than last,
but its still a:
What is the point of all this?
if i had to write this second season:
1) lucious would have still been in jail,
building an empire of talent there.
he would have been tite that jamal was on the fuck shit with his company.
maybe controlling jamal to do his bidding from jail?
2) jamal would have went dark.
since he felt slighted by cookie and his brothers,
he would have been lashing out and causing havoc being in power.
3) cookie would still be cookie
4) boo boo kitty would not have been so ruined.
she would have been someone who was just as powerful.
she knows all the secrets and would have been either:
a) with jamal
b) with some surprise new character
5) andre is kinda irrelevant
wife being pregnant is irrelevant.
since lucious would have been in jail,
he would ave been battling jamal with hakeem to take him down
6) hakeem and this latina group would be irrelevant.
he would have been working on his career,
trying to take down jamal,
and maybe expand that kidnapping scene a lot more.
it would have been juicy,
full of plot twists,
and extra servings of drama.
i also hate how some shows complete the drama in one or two episodes.
it tends to leave for filler episodes.
shows like “how to get away with murder”,
and even “scandal”,
know how to stretch on the point.
it leaves for more dialogue and better writing.
it also sets up for plot twists we don’t see coming.
boo boo kitty gone “boo boo krazy” is just so random.
i just hope “empire” can satisfy me before it leaves on its winter break.
is it bad that i probably won’t miss it?
lowkey: how sexy did alicia keys look for next week’s episode?
