Not seen Empire, is it meant to be worth a watch?

Watched first episode yesterday , manc_don...described as the 'black Dynasty'...at first I thought I'd pull out , just more of the same American garbage only black...but it got a hud. Away to watch episode 2.

Deals with homophobia amongst blacks who may be more intolerant about it than we. (Pity fowk cannae just live and let live without insisting that others conform to their way if the World). World wid be a better , safer place if they did.

Have you tried Show/Movie Box?

Empire was hugely hyped over here. Every ad break promoting it, breakfast TV fawning over it, a cast member a day on TV every morning even after the series had finished. That fair put me off, that and having watched one episode with my stepdaughter realized it was predictable, simplistic, dull with stereotypical character throughout.

Nae my cup of tea, but if you like it, fair play. I doubt everyone likes what I like.

Cannot imagine any production surpassing Breaking Bad...and Better Call Saul is pretty good too.

I guess the appeal of Empire is that the cast is predominantly black(altho' I don't know about the directors/producers). Makes a change from all these white devils.   ;D

Yet to be convinced by this but need to pick it up again.

Will wait for a few weeks until a few more episodes come out and then hit Empire  :thumbsup:
