Empire TV show

I was intrigued by 'Empire,' thanks to Fox cramming ads for it down our throats. I wasn't sure if it was going to be brilliant or trash TV -- I just knew either way I was in. So pressing play on the pilot, I was dubious at best. But good lawd! That wariness was quickly erased with each passing scene, because yes, 'Empire' is that good.
