Audience Reviews for Empire: Season 3

    Never have a seen such s poorly written piece of trash that panders to the lowest common denominator. The plot is spoon fed and predictable, and it perpetuates stereotypes that most of us do not aspire to. Not all black folks are like this people, and your kids shouldn’t look up to these type of nonsense characters. I love Terrence Howard and Taraji, this show is no better than here comes honey boo boo. These rolls are beneath Terrence and taraji, they deserve so much better.

    This season, Empire loses some of the little believability it had by becoming too soapy for its own good.

    I truly love Empire and the cast!!! I have been a longtime fan of Taye Diggs, but can Cookie and Lucious hurry up and get back together? And, can Terrence please go back to his natural hair state? That relaxed look is not him although it does reflect his character more. Thank you all very much for a great show!!!! Love you guys!!!!
