Empire


So I’m sure a lot of people have something to say about long-running Empire now on its 5th season. While others may have stopped watching after the second or third season some like myself stayed loyal to the musical-drama since day one. Not because it’s the absolute best television show on TV but because it’s a show that has brought on some of the best actors and actresses together including Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Jessie Smollet, Trai Byers, Bryshere Y. Gray; in addition to many cameos including Mariah Carey, Phylicia Rashard, Xzibit, Raven Symone, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and the list goes on. The show’s musical element also has been key to its continued success 4 seasons later with soundtracks included. Empire, in a nutshell, is about a wealthy family with a musical hip-hop background running a public shared multi-million dollar record label. The family does whatever it takes to get to the top and stay on top which does include from time to time some violent scenarios. I️ do see the successful series coming to an end sooner than later as we’ve seen so many bounced around transitions in characters, relationships, and even ownership but wouldn't be surprised if a spin-off happened.
