    Discuss your thots on this critically acclaimed primetime soapy season of television.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I haven’t seen it but I’ve always been surprised that this won Program of the Year at the TCA awards when it was up against shows like The Americans, Mad Men and Game of Thrones.

    It was definitely the buzziest show of that TV season. No surprise it won over The Americans or Transparent. I guess Mad Men and GoT were close RUs.

    Love. It was lowkey a moment in pop culture.

    I was surprised when  Viola won the Emmy over Taraji

    Love. First season was great, however the second season was horrible (I couldn’t finish the season)

    This show was so overrated, and it went downhill very fast.

    FYC:

    All things Succession, Severance, Ted Lasso, The Great and The White Lotus! Also, Colin Firth and Janelle James while you're at it.

    Loved it and it was iconic, the ratings rise every single week was impressive to witness and unprecedented. The rest is trash tho, I dropped it after the premiere of s3.

    Love! The first season was really great soap opera. The show had its ups and downs afterwards, but that doesn’t take away from the pure fun of the first season. Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon was an instant icon and easily one of my fave TV characters ever. She’s the only reason I finished all 102 episodes of the show. I couldn’t get enough of her (and will remain forever pissed they didn’t move forward with the Cookie spin-off).

    Loved the first season! A camp classic and Taraji P. Henson’s performance as Cookie was incredible. Although sadly like hopelesstar and I assume most of the world, I gave up after season 2.

    I voted love because I watched the whole first season, thought Taraji P. Henson was great and loved seeing the ratings trajectory that first season took.

    But it’s still strong to say “love” because I was mixed on the show and gave up early in Season 2

    I did watch the entire show, and the fact that a huge show like early Empire didn’t get a proper finale because of Covid (they promised a wrap up season or movie and nobody cared), tells how much this show went downhill.
    And they gave up the Cookie spin off too, which I’m glad because I don’t want Taraji stuck on that role forever.

    The scandal from Jussie didn’t help either.
