There's very little positive going on in Empire, except that Terrence Howard is worth watching. The trouble is that it's so far down the rabbit hole that it sort of dares you to be able to describe how bad it really is. It tries like hell, and you have to give it something for that, but a lot of what it tries relies heavily on your stupidity.
Vikings is stacking the deck again, and there are some really interesting cast additions happening.
There's more of the Rose's coming your way, though it seems too far away.
There are some shows that everyone should watch just to figure out how to gauge other people's opinions and Jean-Claude Van Johnson is one of them. It's also an almost surreal experience, hopelessly entertaining, and mostly hilarious.
