“Empire” roared back into America’s homes with a vengeance last Wednesday. it was the highest rated premiere of the week even beating the ABC TGIT machine. Ferver for the show was at an all time high here in Chicago, where the show is shot. There was a ton of “Empire” watch parties in homes across the Windy City.  Coincidentally, the Blu ray and DVD also rolled out last week as well. (A review of each will be included in the future)

When we last left the Lyons, Lucius(Terrence Howard) had been put in the slammer for the murder of Bunky . Jamal is now comfortable in his position as CEO of Empire, but watch out because Hakeem and Andre led by Cookie are coming for a hostile takeover. The show exploded with the Empire label and artists staging a huge “Free Luciius” concert. Hakeem and Jamal performed and the highlight was when a huge cage was suspended over the stage for spectacle. Imagine everyone’s faces when non other than Cookie addressed the crowd dressed as a gorilla.
