Critic reviews for The Outspoken King
The best part of Empire's second episode is the same as last week's series premiere: Cookie.
There were A LOT of things happening on Empire Season 1 Episode 2, as the freshman series kept chugging along and gave us a highly entertaining hour of television.
After last week's trainwreck of a pilot, anything would have been an improvement. But, let's give credit where credit is due, because Lee Daniels and co. came out firing on both cylinders with this week's Empire.
As much as "The Outspoken King" states its lofty ideals, it doesn't always deliver on them.
