    Re: Empire

    I enjoyed Empire, too. Jamal is my favorite character. He's not acting out to draw attention to himself (like Hakeem) or plotting the destruction of others to get his way (like Andre). He's living his life on his own terms, seeking to develop his talents, whether it brings him fame and fortune or not. It doesn't hurt that he's easy on the eyes, too.

    Cookie is a mess but she's enjoyable to watch because of the way she shakes everything up. I'd be bitter and hateful, too, if my money started a successful company and I was then shut out from the proceeds from it.

    I also don't care for rap and hip hop but at least Jamal's music is good since it's more R & B.

    I'm not familiar with any of the actors in Empire.

    Jamal is from The Mighty Ducks movie (going WAY back here). He, and Gabby, (who plays the secretary Becky), and Rafael De La Fuente, (who plays Jamal's boyfriend Michael), were all Tweeting us throughout the show last night. That was pretty cool of them. And "Shut up, Dora" is now trending like crazy on Twitter ever since Cookie told that to Michael when she barged in on him in Jamal in bed. Taraji Henson, who plays Cookie, has a huge Dora The Explorer on her Twitter feed. Something tells me poor Michael ain't gonna live that down too soon. Jamal, who's real name is Jussie Smollett had to audition for his part SEVEN times before they chose him. I can't imagine auditioning SEVEN times! I would have been so discouraged by the third or fourth audition. When he sings on the show, it's really him singing. Yes, he's easy on the eyes, but so is Michael, Cookie, Lucious.... well, all of them really. What a sharp looking cast of characters.

    I don't really like any of the boys which I suppose is sort of the goal (other than making Jamal appear sympathetic). But even Jamal's character rubs me the wrong ways to the point of me thinking so who really is the lesser of the evils when it comes to taking over that company. I'd be real mad if I was Cookie with the money she put in and the time prison she put in because of that money only to end up making everyone else rich basically.

    I think in a kind of weird way Lucious kind of admires Cookie's spunk. I think he still feels some kind of way about her. Dang I was so rooting for that shoe lol

    Oh, most definitely. I agree. I think he loves that she's standing up to him. They're going to end up having one last roll in the sheets 'for old time's sake,' I'm sure. And most likely, his pretty little girlfriend will either catch them in the act, or Cookie will make sure of it she knows.

    I just learned that Naomi Campbell is going to make a reoccurring guest appearance on the show as the love interest of Hakeem, the youngest son. Naomi is like 40 something, and Hakeem is like 20 something. Oh snap! Cookie's gonna go buck wild. That's her little boy.
