Empire: This Hulu series is quite the binge!
Granted, Hulu sure has a lot of films, movies, documentaries and TV series that are damn near perfect. One of our current favorites is called Empire.
It’s an American drama series which focuses on a families music business [Empire].
The series takes a lot of turns after a father is diagnosed with ALS. The challenges of keeping his business alive and his boys “trained,” creates for drama, tears and just the right amount of crime.
The writing meshed in perfectly with the cinematography. The glam of the entertainment industry showed well and set the story visually.
Again, there were so many intimate moments with each character it was difficult to root for just one.
The show is inspiring, for example, they even touch on bipolar disorder. It’s a mental illness that has been talked about in recent headlines. It also brings to light how messed up the justice system can be and how much money can buy.
The surprise appearances of Snooooop dooogy dooooog were dope too!
Remember when Kanye had a mental break down? Well, just as it’s written in Empire, Kanye opened up about his mental illness.
“If you don’t take medication every day to keep you at a certain state, you have a potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you can even end up in the hospital. And you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it.”
“When you ramp up, it expresses your personality more. You can become almost more adolescent in your expression. This is my specific experience that I’ve had over the past two years, because I’ve only been diagnosed for two years now.”
“When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything. Everyone — this is my experience, other people have different experiences — everyone now is an actor. Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things.”
Most importantly, it’s the one thing this show brings to the table, awareness, insight, love, hate and what people go through working in the industry.
Positive Celebrity wonders if Kanye has seen the show and if it’s relatable to him.
Although, since the show is a hit, we are sure it’s a safe bet to say many people can relate to each of the characters in Empire.
It’s just like Justin Bieber said on Instagram.
“Life’s not always greener on the other side.”
Further whole cast and crew did an amazing job on Empire. It takes a lot of hard work to make a series that keeps you hooked and gives you intense feels.
Now, now, if you haven’t seen Empire yet you can check it out on Hulu.
