  • Political incorrectness and illegal steroid use by professional athletes were the two main story lines within "Media Blitz."

    Simply outstanding writing. The story lines in "Media Blitz" were particularly timely in light of Michael Vick destroying his pro football career as well as the concurrent investigation into professional baseball stars' illegal use of steroids. The writer deftly captured the immature arrogance, ignorance and stupidity of so many young athletes. His breathtaking speech for Michael Eric Dyson delivered the story's moral lesson while dropping the deserving hammer on the character of Malick. Dyson's inclusuion in the episode was a brilliant stroke by the E.P. But, Professor Dyson's words, courageously and artfully crafted by the writer, delivered the reason for this show to proudly exist. Kudos are also due the director and actors for walking the fine edge between the comedic and the dramatic. A false step would have relegated the episode to farse. Easily the best and most important episode yet produced for "The Game."moreless
