EMPIRE/ THIS IS US. Both shows have returned for another season but they were really struggling to hold my attention. Then suddenly with Episode 6 they both returned to the standard of their previous seasons and blew me away. I question how it can take six episodes of a series before the endless list of producers realise that they are getting it wrong. Is that how long they take to get our viewer feedback and make the needed changes?
Well, they are back on form and even reducing me to tears again in Ep 6 & 7 of THIS IS US.
UPDATE: Jan 2018: THIS IS US Episode 10 was so unengaging, dull and weakly written that I am now DUMPING this series for good!
