My review for Empire Season 1

Season 3 returned September 21!


REVIEW:
I love this season!
Picking up where the last season left off, and it left off with a BANG, we dig deeper into the musical family of the Lyon's. I still think Cookie is the best character on the show. She is tough. She's to-the-point, and she doesn't take crap off anyone. She knows what is best for her boys, and for the music. Lucious, on the other hand, is arrogant, money-hungry and bent on destroying people. Even if it's his own blood.
Makes you wonder if the music business really is that cut-throat. If it is, I can see why some people leave it and the spotlight all together.
The music on this show is phenomenal though. So many stars visit the show, like Alicia Keys, and sing some beautiful songs that always seem to stick in my head.
That is probably the best part of the show, the music. I do like the drama but it's the music I watch for. Some of the best tracks come on the show.
I can't wait for Season 3. It's gonna be epic!

4/5

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
