    Hi Everyone,

    I've just started watching this season for the first time and figured I'd post about it here and if anyone else feels like discussing the season with me as I watch it, please feel free to do so. But no spoilers please!

    I've just seen episode one and I think it's off to a good start.
    The free Lucious concert looked good. I guess they have a decent budget to pull off stuff like this with lots of extras. The hostile take over plot twist was good too, I didn't see that coming.

    Also I liked how Lucious still loves Cookie and helped her. I can't wait for him to get out of jail! :)

    Take care,
    Best wishes:
    Karin

    I missed the first episode of Season 4 because they'd moved it up an hour and I didn't get the memo. Now I can watch EMPIRE, and an hour later, pointless nuDYNASTY on Wednesdays.

    I just don't know what to say about EMPIRE. I've only missed one episode since it premiered in January 2015, the same month we thought my father had had a stroke but hadn't. And while the first season was pretty snappy, ever since it just seemed to exist in its our dour, drab zone which is decreasingly compelling.

    I don't know what they should do.

    Maybe Jamal and Hakeem should suddenly have an incestuous affair and realize this is what they've really wanted all their lives, and then start rapping about it on their new Empire album Chocolate Creme. And the family never quite "gets" it until somebody walks in on them en flagrante ledicktoe -- Cookie, Lucius, or an unmedicated Andre -- and goes crazy and kills them both. Creating yet another homicidal scandal.

    It's not that I really want to see this. I just think it would happen.

    Anyway, the irony of EMPIRE occurring in The Empire State, New York, is that it's actually filmed in Chicago... and how can we tell that?? Because we totally can... It's feels 100% like they're in Chicago, and I completely forget it's supposed to be NYC until they show us another establishing shot of The Big Apple.

    And I go..... "uh..... yeah...... that's right..... I forgot."

    I am still waiting for season three to be released on DVD. So I've only seen the first two seasons so far. I was disappointed in the end of season two when they killed off Rhonda and had Anika marry Lucious. Also I think the tempo is off. Things are moving too fast to really get into the drama.

    Can somebody please start believing that the Anika bitch pushed Rhonda down the stairs and murdered her baby?

    I've just re-discovered an old DYNASTIER title card with a character named "Lucius".

    I'm calling my lawyers again.
