Empire Season 3 Episode 9 Recap: Wait to Strike

The fall finale of Empire is already here and Cookie is now in charge of putting together Angelo’s People’s Ball, formerly known as the Captain’s Ball, for his political campaign. Will everything run smoothly just like she planned? Uh oh. Looks like Freda’s little rapping session that Shine recorded helped Tariq pin her father’s death on Lucious with some more clues. The initials MM and BK were seen in an email associated with Lucious and once Freda rapped about the men whose initials these belonged to, Tariq had a crystal clear connection between the two men and Lucious.

Hairspray Live cast

Hairspray Live! We Talk NBC’s Latest Live Masterpiece with Harvey Fierstein and Maddie Baillio!

A peek at the news is all you need to reckon that America needs Tracy Turnblad now more than ever. The fearlessly sunny poster girl for body positivity, self-esteem, racial equality and the power of a good set of dance moves is the creation of avant-garde auteur John Waters, who made her the centerpiece of his 1988 feature film Hairspray. The quirky tale of the Rubenesque teen’s quest to star on, then integrate, her favorite local dance show in 1960s Baltimore was only a minor success, but its do-right-and-dance message resonated with veteran Broadway producer Margo Lion, who hired a […]

Empire Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: Brothers Divided

Uh oh! Shine wasn’t lying on last week’s Empire when he said he wanted to kill some Lyons. Lucious is always one step ahead of everyone and knows that Shine would want to start a war. He’s got his back covered with armed cars and undercover cops around every corner. Unlike his father, Andre wasn’t suspecting a surprise visit from Shine. Andre turns around to see Shine pointing a gun at him along with all his henchmen. Andre got lucky when Shine’s first gun didn’t go off. He tested his luck again when Shine’s second gun went off but Nessa […]


Empire Season 3 Episode 4 Recap: Different Worlds

Andre might have just lost his wife in a tragic accident, but I think new sparks are flying between him and Nessa on this episode of Empire. Never would’ve expected that one. Maybe Andre is just the thing Lucious needs to help win over Nessa now that he has to compete for her. Jamal is persistent on working things out with Freda. I’m not sure if he’s trying to visit her to get over his PTSD or if he wants to repair their relationship but I know I wouldn’t have the strength to visit the person who shot me. Ouch! […]

Go against Jamal and try to release his Black and White album that Jamal didn’t want released. At least Andre isn’t in jail. With the press swarming around the police department, Andre is coached to hide himself and not “go all Black Lives Matter” on the crowd. What kind of a lawyer/friend says […]
