The ESPYs happened Wednesday night, and I tuned in. I came expecting just an awards show, and I did get a little irritated at who won what when it came to honoring the year’s best performances and athletes. But I left with tons of emotions after hearing the heartwrenching stories of those who have faced and are facing intense struggle.
The Prancing Elites Project, Oxygen’s latest show, is a show that hit all of the heartstrings. It succeeds in making me simultaneously disappointed and inspired by the human race.
That’s a tough beginning to an article, right? Well, let’s get into the recap and you can see what I’m talking about.
Synopsis (NBC): “The Slap” is an eight-episode miniseries based on the book by Christos Tsiolkas and Australian television series (“The Slap”) produced by Matchbox Pictures.
Synopsis (Fox): EMPIRE is a sexy and powerful new drama about the head of a music empire whose three sons and ex-wife all battle for his throne.
My opinions: Consider me a fan of Empire. To be honest, I was already sold from the moment I heard it was a show starring Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, and had the soapiness of Dynasty. Just like with Agent Carter, my expectations were exceeded when I finally watched the premiere episode. There’s a reason why it was the highest-rated drama Fox has had in years.
Earlier in the Fall 2014 television season, I wrote about Jane the Virgin, but since I started my new site, I thought it pertinent to republish my initial thoughts on this fun CW show based on the popular telenovela Juana la Virgen.
