Last night I watched Empire’s premiere. And by the overnights, 9.9 million of you were along with me.
I love NPR’s take on it, calling it a soap opera set to music. It explains why I instinctively knew why I’d love this show. But once I tuned in I found other reasons.
Like Taraji P. Henson’s eyebrow action. Epic!!!
How close two of the brothers are.
How it had more music than Galavant (but less than lead-in American Idol)
And how Gabourey Sidibe is in several scenes and ads – let’s just hope she gets to use those crazy acting chops we know and love.
We’ll see where Empire goes, but they have something special here.
