Critic reviews for The Devil Quotes Scripture

The speed of Empire's storytelling is set to Speedy Gonzalez so it takes a minute-and a second viewing-to really chop, screw, and process each episode.

This show is moving forward at a brisk pace and I'm loving it.

I think that the less seriously we take this show, the better equipped we're going to be to survive this first season and beyond.

Wait, what? Yes. Naomi Campbell.

Cookie, per the usual, has yet another banner episode, as she does her best to pump some more ambition into Jamal, after he "bitched out" of his coming out announcement last week.

From the embarrassing story lines to the ridiculous dialogue to the scenery-munching overacting, this show has gone from being entertainingly trashy to just plain trashy. And that's no fun to watch.
