Overview of “Empire” TV Series
Although “Empire” is holding pretty good ratings on review aggregator sites yet the show is being criticized for several other factors. First off, the show is being criticized for promoting racism. Another thing that people find uncomfortable is the family dynamics.
“Empire” follows the life of Hip hop icon Lucious Lyon and his family. Lucious is a popular artist and owns “Empire” Entertainment. He is on the peak of stardom and wealth but things turn upside down when he learns that he is diagnosed with ALS. Lucious plans to find his true heir among his three sons. This starts a war within the family where everyone wants to take over the “Empire”.
It is wrong to criticize the show on moral grounds because it show the real issues that a wealthy family face. In fact it covers up several common family issues beautifully.
“Empire” season 3 is getting very positive reviews from critics. The show is getting popular among hip hop and rap fans. This is because “Empire” is frequently quest starred by pop icons like Mariah carey, Pitbull, Snoop Dogg, Mary J Blidge, Cuba Gooding Jr, Ludacris, Chris Rock, Becky G, Alicia Keys, Rita Ora, Timbaland, Ne-yo and Jason derulo.
As far as the ratings are concerned than “Empire” holds an impressive 85% approval rating on RottenTomatoes and 7.8 score on IMDB. Season 1 of “Empire” gained an audience of around 17 million people. The number decreased to 15.73 million viewers for Season 2. However, the viewership again increased to 17 million with “Empire” Season 3.
All these facts make it clear that “Empire” will return for a fourth season. Another interesting fact about “Empire” is the Soundtrack. “Empire” OST features many popular hip hop artists of modern era. This is the reason why “Empire” Soundtrack is one of the best-selling TV soundtracks. Of course you have to expect a good soundtrack from a TV show based on music industry.
