    “The Devil Quotes Scripture” – The Merchant of Venice
    “Out, Damned Spot” – Macbeth
    “Unto the Breach” – Henry V
    “Die But Once” – Julius Caesar
    “Poor Yorick” – Hamlet

Has anyone else noticed the huge number of references to Shakespeare in the TV series Empire?  From the pilot episode where one of the son’s asks his dad, Hey, are you King Lear’ing us?, to practically every title of every episode so far (see episode list above)?  I love it!  I’ve just started watching the show and it is quite good – very engaging.  It’s like Glee, but for the mafia crowd.
