Show Summary

The Game stars Tia Mowry as Melanie Barnett, a young, intelligent medical student, who is also the girlfriend of an eager rookie football player, Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall). Melanie decides to pass on her chance at attending Johns Hopkins Medical School to be with Derwin after he is recently chosen to play for the San Diego Sabres as the new third-string wide receiver. As Melanie tries to adjust to her new lifestyle, she meets Tasha Mack (Wendy Raquel Robinson), single mother and manager of Malik Wright (Hosea Chanzes) who is a charming star quarterback for the San Diego Sabres and Kelly Pitts (Brittany Daniel), the satisfying wife of Jason Pitts (Coby Bell) who is a thrifty star player for the San Diego Sabres. With the help of Tasha and Kelly, Melanie learns how the game is played amongst the women behind the athletes. The Game originally aired on the CW before BET Networks picked it up in 2010.

    So they decide to cancel the show after season 9 but didnt even care to write anything decent for season 8? Makes me question even watching the last season, too bad I'm loyal cuz this is wack & I'm very disappointed!!

    No matter what all the naysayers think and believe, I'm still very much a fan of the show, past and current actors included. The story line has seen a tremendous overhaul with writers going in a direction that doesn't seem to be very well received by a large viewership , but let's try to continue to support BET and the remaining actors. Truthfully, I liked Kelly's presence on the show and was utterly devastated when the only one permanent Caucasian of the cast was removed for whatever reason. I hope she will continue to make guests appearances and ultimately return as a full-time cast member. I realize Chardonnay was deeply hurt by Jason's marriage rebuttal, but I'm not in favor of her literally trying to vindictively make him suffer so much financially. Let's just be real, they were married in Tijuana both in an alcoholic stupor. So neither should have had high expectations for the marriage lasting or having unrealistic expectations for a fairytale outcome. Regardless of which one was actually wealthy or not. I was hoping for a more amicable solution and dissolution of the marriage without the vindictiveness. Needless to say, I will continue to watch and support the show and BET network. As we've all seen and is very much so evident in the ratings, there is MASSIVE influence by African American viewership! That alone should make us more proactive in our support of the ever growing shows that cater to primarily ethnic audiences or rely heavily on our support for any hopes of success. Just to name a few: Scandal, Being Mary Jane, How To Get Away With Murder, Black-ish, Extant, etc. This does NOT include any of the ratchet reality shows as basically the drama in those will sell itself! Not proud of the fact that RHOA, Love & Hip Hop franchise, Basketball Wives, R&B Divas ATL and LA, SWV Reunited, and Mary Mary are all the ones that I can think of right off hand that capitalize on bringing so much negativity and downright shameful behavior, it's often offensive. Although I'm personally guilty of watching a few of those listed, I'm saddened that I'm merely supporting ratchet, drama-filled tv as a trade off for what should be black, women, and entrepreneurial empowerment. If at any point those shows were originally designed to promote that, that focus has long since been lost and simply fallen by the wayside!moreless
  • It's an all right show

    7.5
    The Game was the second spin-off series I watched before I knew the parent show, the first is Angel. The show was okay, though I have only see some of it on tv and online. Now I don't mean to compare to things to another, but The Game is kinda like Futurama. I know Futurama is a cartoon and The Game is a live action show, but here are some hints on how these shows are alike (in my opinion): 1] the main characters are somewhat in their 20's, 2] both of them have been cancelled after 3 or 4 seasons, 3] the two returned a few years later but on a different network and 4] both are being cancelled again. That's all I can say about it. ANYWAYS, the show was good, but it changed quickly.moreless
  • Former die-hard fan of this show...

    What kind of tv show has ONLY TEN EPISODES in a season?? Six months between seasons and that's it? What's the point??



    Also, what was the point of Jason putting all that effort into his relationship with Chardonnay, and he didn't even love her?? The writers did a good job taking 9 episodes to make Chardonnays role make sense, and then?? Very bad writing.



    Kelly used to be great, but she came back looking like a clown did her makeup. Seriously, she used to be cool. Totally not worth bringing her back.



    Due to the lack of actual episodes, I'm out. Not worth waiting six months for barely half a season.moreless

    7.0
    With a nearly-50 Tasha having a baby with one of two-men that she dogged out, the same ol' Malik, and the boorish and tired shennangans of Blue and Kierra, The Game has become more like a bad car accident from which I can't look away! Kelly coming back and the Jason and Chardonnay-thing were glimmers of hope but overall, the storylines were straight out of the Jerry Springer/Maury Pauvich playbook. And the characters, whoa! Really immature for the ages that they are supposed to be portraying. It is a shame, I expected more from Mara Brock Akil.moreless
