If they feel out the rest of the characters, I might like this season more. When Cookie isn’t on screen, I just want to turn the channel. The supporting cast just isn’t interesting to watch. Hopefully, that’ll change this season.September 3, 2015 at 12:19 pm #360001
I really, really liked Season 1, I’m hoping season 2 can up the ante, and like Sui Generis said, I’m hoping the supporting cast gets more to do and has more dimension/layers added to them. I think the stuff with Lucius in prison could be good, and I like that we’ll be seeing Jamal trying to lead the company, all of that could have great chraracter development. That being said, Lucious, Cookie, and ‘Mal were pretty much the most fleshed out characters in season 1, so here’s to hoping they can really shake things up and give everyone their due. Looking forward to the new season (especially Cookie and her one-liners)!September 13, 2015 at 3:31 pm #360002

Great cover story in The Hollywood Reporter.
Also a review for the Season Premiere from New York Daily NewsSeptember 18, 2015 at 12:06 pm #360011
Looking forward to it!
I thought you hated Empire
Not sure where you got that idea! I don’t think it’s the highest quality show out there, but I definitely find it entertaining!September 18, 2015 at 2:10 pm #360014
Its 5days away and I need to see more reviews. Scream Queens is already receiving mixed reviews and I’ve only seen two positive ones for Empire.
Deadline just posted their review:September 20, 2015 at 10:06 am #360016
Anymore reviews? 3 more days.September 20, 2015 at 12:06 pm #360018
^ I think it’s positive. I’m pretty sure it’ll get a 70 or 80 from Variety…which is way better than Season 1’s grade of 50/100.
I can definitely see a final metascore of 75-85 for Season 2.September 20, 2015 at 12:44 pm #360019
The season premiere of “Empire” doubles down on the big, brash, unapologetic melodrama of its freshman run. Absolutely sensational.
I actually can’t name a more fearlessly constructed hour of pop entertainment to air on TV so far this year, ‘cept maybe the “Empire” pilot.
