Such a good show. I was upset it was over. The hour FLEW by.

Taraji P. Henson is everything. Cookie is everything. Loved everything about her. Loved how she beat Hakeem's disrespectful ass with the broom. Loved her shade at "Halle Berry", the relationship she has with Lucious, the relationship she has with Jamal.

I was bored by Andre and his wife, but I'm still interested in them. Hope to see them explored some more so I can give a damn.

This show is so fucking good and it was simply the pilot.

I agree about Andre and his wife Rhonda. I'm definitely intrigued by them, but they were sort of the weak part of the show. I'm sure that'll change once we get to know them more. Especially considering the look in Andre's eyes when he was able to convince Cookie to manage Jamal.

I can't wait for Cookie to interact with Andre's "white wife," LOL! Her interactions with Jamal's boyfriend Michael were cracking me up!

I loved the pilot! It was so ballsy, it almost didn't seem like a network show at times (which is about the biggest compliment I can possibly give to a network drama these days).

Apparently Lee Daniels said he wanted to make a "black Dynasty" with this show. I could definitely see some obvious parallels throughout the hour.

Yeah, from the promos leading up to the premiere, I immediately thought this show was going to be like a "black Dynasty." Cookie oozes ghetto ratchet Alexis Carrington.

Cookie and her assistant were hilarious this week. I can't wait for the inevitable beatdown between Cookie and Lucious's new girl (Annika?).

Andre is still kind of meh, but I really liked his wife in this episode.

I can't believe how much I love this show.

Love this show! I had no idea it was starting now, nor what was it about, until I saw you guys talk about it here.

Love the drama, intrigue and family schemes! Really soapy and fun! Cookie is awesome!

I caught the pilot and was instantly hooked...then I missed the second show and went crazy looking for it on demand and finally found it and watched it...now I really can't wait to see what's about to go down.

It's obvious that Jamal will be the only one there to clean his father's ass in the end....and I'm really looking forward to the moment he realizes that the ONLY one with true talent AND a great heart is the gay son he dismisses and trashes. Cookie is my EVERYTHING.....she doesn't play and I really do think she struck a deal with the feds to get out of jail sooner but in the end, she's not going to screw this up so I see her staling the feds....let's see how long that will last.


It's obvious that Lucious and her will end up in bed together sooner or later...and I can't wait to see her reaction to finding out he's sick....THAT moment should be good.

I love the show and so glad it got renewed.

I'm rooting for Jamal to take over the Empire with the legit talent he has and make it bigger than his father ever imagined it would be.
