You do not want to miss the first five minutes from this week's jam-packed episode of the year's most outrageously entertaining new hit. As usual, Cookie (the fabulous Taraji P. Henson) steals the scene with abandon.
Another week, another winner. Empire Season 1 Episode 6 was pretty much a slam dunk from start to finish, with Cookie once again proving that she is not to be messed with.
This wasn't my favorite "Empire" episode so far, but 43 TV minutes with Cookie is consistently better than most 43 TV minutes that don't include Cookie.
Whoever it may be, Empire is proving that it has a big enough umbrella to fit everyone from Naomi Campbell and Cuba Gooding Jr., to Judd Nelson and Antwone Fisher star Derek Luke underneath.
If Maury pops out and says, "Jamal, you are the father," I will be thrilled, but that's just me.
Though the latest episode of Empire offers plenty to talk about, I must highlight Jamal's newly revealed (and increasingly complex) storyline -- which had me shaking my head and picking my mouth up off the floor at the same time.
you look at Empire closely, not many of those shocking moments actually move the story that much farther forward. It's eye-catching glitz hides a deceptively, frustratingly slow-moving long game.
"Out, Damned Spot" highlights Empire's unfortunate knack for creating inconsistencies in its characters.
This week's episodic story finds Cookie trying to rehabilitate Elle Dallas, Empire's first major star, and as a self-contained story it's...weird.
