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.

  • It's an all right show

    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
  • Child_Hush!

    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
  • We got played on BET

    What happened to the football team including their personal lives off the field. That's what the title say The Game. But this is what happens when you take quality show and give it to BET!!

    I think brandy and jason should stay together and kelly should move on with her life if not people will stop watching the show
