It’s a FOX show about strong women, which sort of sounds stupid when you say it out loud. It gets worse when you say it’s a spin-off of Empire. But it works, kind of. The show has gotten ‘tepid’ reviews and it’s a mess, but it’s not as shitty as it could be. That’s a success on a FOX show. Plus it has Queen Latifah and the transgender characters are played by transgender actors.
