This show is everything, I don't understand why people dislike it so much.
There's A LOT of drama, yes, and even if you're not a drama lover, once you fall in love with the show you will handle and get it.
This show is about family, about love, about music!
It's about how this pretty dysfunctional family can work through all that it's bad and still be strong as one!
At the end of the day you won't see a happy family for sure but I bet Luscious or Cookie or Hakeem, Andre or Jamal will put their life in danger in a heart beat just to save one another in a situation of life or death, no matter how bad things are between them. We've seen it at the end of season 2, so we sure will see more of it!
And that's the beauty of the show.
The way that Cookie fights for her family to stay together while Luscious is always tearing them apart. They just never give up on each other.
Every character has a good story line and a big dept to its persona! The cast couldn't be more perfect, I mean, Terrence and Taraji are the soul of this show. The rest of the cast is brilliant too, no shade of a doubt.
The music is beyond great and even greater if you follow the story of the show because you will be even more connected to the lyrics.
I'm so excited to finally see how they're going to tell Luscious and Cookie's story as kids. Been waiting on that for a long time.
Of course there is so much allusion to the world of music and how industry works,can u name me one show that is totally accurate with reality? It doesn't really matter because it is just a show.
Anyways, I love it so much and for me, it was like a breath of fresh air when I discovered it. And it still is.
To the Empire! * air punch *
