The show suck. When you have a show built around Tasha Mack's love interest, who is the least exciting character than you know it's gone down hill. The new characters they brought in have the least among of chemistry. Malik's character has not matured. The storyline is all over the place and makes no sense. It use to have you intrigued on what goes on behind the scene with pro athletes. The characters were developed characters. Now it's a mess. The show could have survived somewhat Melanie and Derwin but due to bad writing and horrible dialogue, let this show RIP BET.
I just wanted to say another show bites the dust. I was a very big fan of the game from day one also help get the show back on air, now here we come with this mess of a show which is nothing but garbage. Why do people mess of shows this way. The show is no longer the game as it was so really it is nothing but a new show which should be short ran. Sorry, i hate the new show it has no value.
I am not a fan of this season. I begrudgingly watch it. Derwin and Melanie were the best. They had that Martin and Gina vibe. I wish they would do another show together somewhere else as a couple. They were great together. The ghetto characters are taking over the show. Tasha was enough and now Brandy with all her wide eye, neck popping, ghetto mannerism buffoonery. That is not what black is. This is the crack baby generation black. Black women did not act that way before the crack addiction era and neither did their grand and great grandmothers. So that is not keeping it so called real, if you want to really be real, you will look at how black women used to behave generations before. I am disappointed and with the reality shows showing much of the same mannerism, its too much. Cant wait until the new season on Tia and Tamera, such a refreshing show. Its more reflective of who today's black women are showing the class and femininity of the our foremothers and the savvy, modern, career minded black females that our foremothers fought for us to be. Tia and Pooch, have your publicist shop you two to another channel in your own show.
No hard feelings, but I miss the originality of the show and how relevant and inspiring it used to be when it was on the CW. Melanie's character showed young women that they can be in a relationship, but also have a sense of self by following their dreams, going to school, accomplishing your own, and by the time it came to BET Melanie was a house wife (there's nothing wrong with that), but this day and age it's nice to see women progress through challenging circumstances and pursuing their careers like men. The music used to be so captivating through some of the most emotional scenes and now it's just very different. My friend and I were such big fans. When they canceled the show on the CW we were proud to say that we protested online to bring the show back. However, everything changes at some point.
Now I love the show the Game but latley since they got pooch hall an tia off the show it has really gone down not to add miss london can't act at all. I just think it's time to let the show go cause it's not good anymore the stories don't make any since to me now one week someone addict to something then the next week someone having an afair with someone please stop this is makeing black show look very bad . we already don't have nothing good to look at now.. Hell I dont like the show that comes on after the Game but it better this yr then it was last yr. so I might have to keep looking at let's stay together I'm done with the Games it's not a good show anymore an all these stars they keep bring on the show wtf for i mean every now an then it's fine but not every day . it's to run down I'm go back the past seasons an that 's will be the end of my game addiction.
I watched last night's episode of The Game and I am sorry to say that there was just no chemistry among the new cast members. I am not sure why TV executives always feel the need to fix a series that is working by getting rid of all of the players who made the series what it was to begin with. The Game has truly been butchered by the powers to be. The central characters of Malik, Tasha, Jason, Derwin and Melanie made the show what it was. The addition of Brandy was a hit but now there is nothing that ties the characters together. It is just another mishmash "wanna be" comedy and that is too bad because The Game use to be a winner.
This show is honestly the best drama adult show i have ever watched in my life but after the show left the CW it's changed instead of getting better it got worst like the directors started to take the show more serious they got rid of he laugh commentary after a funny thing happened inside of the show i noticed there wasn't any more laugh that's what really reduced the score from being 10 and another i heard this season coming up they got rid Pooch Hlall- Derwin Davis and Tia Mowery - Melinie Barnett Davis there not returning and i think that i am either if youn know what i mean but the show is still good on Bet it's just not just as good
I can't watch this show without her. I started watching this show because of her and Derwin. Won't watch the show if she's not on going to be a permanent cast member. And no one should. We the veiwers wanted this so back, not for you to take our main cast members away.
I think it is crazy that the main character would be reduced to recurring role! I am happy that Pooch Hall has decided to return, but however, I was very interested in how both characters, Melanie and Derwin would grow. I honestly don't think I will be a regular this season. I have always watched the show but now I am no longer interested and like Melanie, I won't be coming back.
That's NOT a good sign if the two main characters aren't returning to the show. We'll see what happens...I thought it went downhill ever since BET got ahold of it.
In all seasons prior it really was a GREAT show but this last season was just bad. Very, very bad. My question is what happened to the original writers/directors/staff persons for The Game? BET failed to keep the characters true to who they really were and who the audience came to know and love. I found myself asking "who is THIS person" each time I watched a new episode.
Tasha Mack was really not the Tasha Mack that we all fell in love with and could relate to. Derwin Davis was this really sweet, thoughtful church-going guy, now what has he become? Self-centered, egotistical, extremely full of himself while wearing out the word "legacy". They got rid of Kelly Pitts...WHY? Not to mention switching out Britney (a.k.a. Brit-Brat) for some other girl who looks way older than a teenager. Coby Bell (a.k.a. Jason Pitts) is now doing "special appearances" and/or guest starring on the show? Really? Brandy Norwood (as much as I love her) just does not fit into the show's dynamic and we all know SHE ain't hardly Jason's type. Bring back Kelly and the real Britney.
BET hit the loyal viewing audience with waaaay too many changes to this once really good show. Overall, I'm really disappointed with this last season of The Game.
REALLY?!?! I am so utterly finished with the media, with all of its non-African American (white) financiers, telling us to stay in our place ... you know ... the ghetto. It's called institutional racism. It's the same "Stay in your place" mentality that tells us that we cannot participate. We are not good enough. So much so, that even we, the most resilient people on earth (African Americans) have embraced and put into play a mentality of keeping our own people down.
The thing that attracted me to this show was the way these women handled their business. Cosmopolitan and sophisticated, whether in the board room representing their intellect and wielding their power, or in the bedroom, claiming and taming their men. Tasha previously portrayed a woman who worked hard and used her brilliance and savvy to become more than just a stereotypical teenage mother from the ghetto. This new(er) version of "The Game" turned "The Ghetto"
And the men, Balla's ... literally and figuratively; doin' their thing to lift themselves and their families up. In the earlier version of the show, we saw camaraderie and competition, both on and off the football field. These "once great" athletes, around whom the show revolved and evolved, rarely ever see any action now. They've all gone to the way of drugs, sex and little else.
I get it. "Sex sells," but damn, it's not everything. And yes, black folks can operate on a multitude of levels, and make it work!
After a few so-so weeks, the series is finally getting back to the comedy/drama that once made it amazing. I've been hooked every Tuesday and the show is only climbing higher! I love watching Melanie's struggle to find herself independent of Derwin and how strong she's been this season with Janay rubbing in the fact that she can't have children.
Now that Tasha and Melanie finally worked things out just bring back Kelly and have Tasha and her work things out and we can get our girls back!
I've watched this show from the beginning and always loved it....until now. I hate the changes to Melanie and Tasha. Melanie is extremely needy and Tasha is extremely desperate. Tasha was always strong and edgy but now she's desperate and over the top ghetto. The Tasha of old would never put a prostitute on retainer. Also hate the war between Melanie & Tasha. The friendship between very different women was part of the appeal of the show.
The show has gone DRASTICALLY down hill this season. It's ghetto fabulous with cheap & tawdry episodes. I enjoyed the show when the focus was on comedy, with intelligent black women. Now with the focus on sex and cheap cattiness, it seems as if the appeal of the show is dumb-downed. I won't continue to watch if this continues. I do however like the addition of Brandy.
I think the game is aweful this season!!!!! I keep watching, hoping for something to change and my disappointment still stands. I have loved this show since the beginning of it and I would rush home from work to make sure I was done with everything so I could enjoy it without interuptions. Thats not the case anymore, so maybe its time to cancel it!!
I hate how they have turned Tasha and Melanie against each other......especially how they have Tasha acting all bad azz towards her, but earlier in the season, she was having nightmares about Kelli whipping her butt!!! SMH!!! I mean, REALLY!!! Also, Melanie supports Derwin through all of his BS and now she ends up with NO FRIENDS at all.....What's that all about!!! And for Tasha to have the NERVE to throw it up in Melanie face about her not being able to have kids is just cause for an AZZ WHIPPING!!!!! That is just WRONG!!! I hope it all gets CURVED around and these two can straighten out their issues....... :((((
Needs a little help seems somewhat unrealistic. Tasha and the Melanie Comments about her being barren is not cool. Brandy she's cool I think she should be with T.T. The show to me was a little more interesting last season. Hope it picks up soon....
I love the show && I'm glad BET picked it up for us. This is the first time, I feel BET is actually listening to its viewers and acting accordingly. I love this season, I really feel like all the characters are growing in their personality and attempting to become better individuals while retaining their spunk. I would really hate to think that people would turn on the Game after BET and the characters worked so hard to get the show back. && THis is one of the best shows BET has had to offer in a long time, be grateful people.
I feel The game is NOT very interesting this season and if it continues on the path that it is going I will not be watching it at all. I mean we know Malik never should have bought the biggest house he could and Melanie and Tasha are feuding but last yr you would leave us in suspense now I really don't care to know. Please step up the game because everyone I ask are truly dissatified with the show. Sorry but pls do better. Thanks.....
The first episode was great! Although there were disagreements, both between the men and women, they always seemed to come together to support one another, but in this season, the love is gone. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!! Also, there are so many sterotypes in this season, it's hard to concentrate on the great talents of the show. I'm African American, but like some of us black women know, we all don't behave the way they are portraying us in this new season. As we know, Tasha has always been upfront about her feelings and was very entertaining in the beginning, now she is just plain "ghetto" and represent so much of what a women her age shouldn't be. It's nothing wrong with having a voice, but bring back the class she exemplified in the first season. Also, no one wants to see Malik broke down, we enjoyed him being rich and arrogant, that's what made us love him. We want the funny "TeeTee", not the serious one with all the great advise. It's nothing wrong with adding some spice to their characters, just don't loose what the audience feel in love with from the begining. Brandy was a great addition, she can hold her on. I love her strenght as a black women, but not really feeling the name Chardonnay, they definiately could have done better with that one-but yet again, there goes another stereotype, but it's not cute. If Jason makes another comment about black women, I'm going to scream. Please flip the page on this character and get to something more deep than just his issues with black women and why he loves white women so much. Black women get tired of being reminded why our black men refuse us when we support them in everything they do, even when they treat us wrong at times. I MISS THE OLD WRITERS, PLEASE BRING THEM BACK OR THE SHOW WON'T MAKE IT TOO MUCH LONGER. The buzz is out, people are very disappointed, but it's not too late to make a change, so producers and writers of the show, take notice to what is being said on this review blog and lets get back in the game. REAL TALK!!!
T- mack is to over the top, Malik has become a WEEP,I'am a recovering acoholic and my life got better and I got off my pitty pot. Brandy does fit, seem as though this group is to fast for her. MR Pitts is a goofy lite skin blackman who likes WHITE women. A black woman is not going to make him black.The sexy little doctor and the now foot ball star are, they kool ! AISO T-MACK DRINKS TO MUCH.
I love this show.. I love the advertising ..hence how it was incorporated into the show. I m sure this is whats coming to other shows. Since TiVo .. No one watching commercials anymore so what better way to advertise. Besides that. I thing this show is great with serious/funny. A++ glad to see it back
