Win: Empire S2 soundtrack and S1 DVD


Are you a big Empire fan like me? The show has returned to FOX on Thursdays at 21:00 (CAT), following a brief production break, but the Lyons family is back and ready to entertain both you and I for a few more episodes in the season. If you love the show as much as I do, you’ll know how incredible the music is. In my opinion, Jamal aka Jussie Smollett is the breakout star in this show (well besides Taraji obviously, but you know what I mean). His voice his hauntingly good and his talent is undeniable. A lot of the songs I’ve downloaded off Apple Music are the ones he has recorded, but perhaps you have some favourites yourself? Let me know.

So the good news for Empire fans is that I have a cd for season two and the complete first season on DVD to giveaway. If you want to get your hands on these, simply tell me when the show airs in South Africa. Leave a comment below or tweet me @JasonVonBerg

*Competition is only open to South African residents

  • The winner will be announced on Thursday 7 April

Jimpire – Fallon does an Empire Parody

You’re so beautiful, you’re Good Enough, Go Up Down, Up Down… A few of the songs from the hit show, Empire – a show that is so refreshingly good, so good and so full of talented stars. We’re now down to hours until the new season hits our screens and I actually cannot wait. What are you looking forward to? I just want more Cookie and more music, besides everything else 😉

Anyway, the incredible Jimmy Fallon ran a special on his show last night, which was hilarious… Obviously! He calls it Jimpire and you can watch it below:

Well done, Jimmy and welcome back Empire!

The Walking Dead returns 12 October

TWD 601 - Daryl First Look

The highly acclaimed show, The Walking Dead returns to your screens on the 12th of October on FOX. The show will air in the U.S. on the 11th on AMC, followed by some 125 markets around the world. The season premiere will be an extended 90-minute premiere episode, which is something the channel continues to pride itself on.

“Seeing the unrivalled global success of The Walking Dead unfold over the past five years has, in a sense, been very humbling. No matter how hard the actors, producers, programmers and marketers work on the show, this zombie explosion would not have been possible without the die-hard support of our global fans. It is why FOX continues to be committed to a day & date release of the series that ensures fans of the show everywhere, continue to be part of the global conversation.” said Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP Scripted Entertainment Programming at FOX International Channels.

I can’t believe it took me so long to get into this show, but I’m so happy I did. I absolutely love it. I’m looking forward to September because that’s when Empire returns for a second season and then October is hotting up with The Walking Dead. FOX, you stay winning!
