…so you know this story already,
father of three owns a successful record company.
the oldest works by his side,
the middle one is gay,
and the youngest wants to rap and follows “attentionisto” ways.
well she is in jail for seventeen years because of the father.
she recently for released and is coming for her cake.
well if yes: please skype me into your next family gathering.
if no: you are in luck.
you can watch it every wednesday night at 9pm on fox.
that is the day and time of the new show “empire”,
the much talked about and promoted drama by lee daniels.
i mean when you have a movie screening for the show,
that’s a pretty big deal.
it stars terrence howard and taraji p henson.
my thoughts (with spoilers)…
first of all i loved it.
at first i thought it was going to be a reboot of “hustle and flow”.
i also thought it was “glee with black people”.
i was a lil’ scared,
but it’s definitely no way associated with any of that.
taraji is definitely the star of “empire”.
terrence is always the same character every time i see him.
so i’m not as impressed with him,
but he did a good job with his character.
my fav things:
– terrence press and curl
– taraji beatin that boy with the broom
– the flashback with the gay son in the kitten heels
– precious and the storm wig
the snow bunny was trying to set up older brother family<<<<
i wonder what pills she is feeding him?
i’m calling viagra!
now is the gay brother suppose to be “frank ocean”?
he was giving me that vibe,
although his music was “20/20 experience”.
i’ll be honest and say i was a little confused at first.
i do that sometimes.
my fox fur has blonde roots.
it would go into a flashback without letting us know.
it was minor shit,
but the drama made up for any flaws the show had.
they pulled no punches with this show.
they even dropped the “f” bomb.
i‘ll be tuning in every week,
although i may binge watch since i appreciate that more.
so i have to ask you foxhole…
“Empire”: Staying Tuned or Tuning Out?
lowkey: i still think 50’s “power” on starz is a little better,
but we will see what empire has to deliver.
oh and empire’s ratings that night: 9.8 million people.
the highest rated new show in years.
watch the first episode of “empire”: here
