Recap Episode 3: Derwin’s Got Some ‘splaing To Do        

         Update: I figured it out! Here I am on Thursday, a full 5 days before Episode 4 is to air, watching The Game. This is the Episode where Melanie wants to go home for Christmas because the Sabers are all about football….and it hits me. I now understand why people are rebelling against the changes.

        I am sitting here watching Melanie and relating to her. Everyone, religion excluded, would like to go home with their families for the holidays. We could connect with Drew Sidora, the character, breaking up a happy home. And even though the world is wrapped around professional football and the lights of fame that many of those watching will never get an inside look at, we somehow managed to relate. They were human in the first 3 seasons. Malik had OCD, Tasha had left by her baby daddy issues, Kelly was trying to please her husband, Jason was controlling, Derwin was getting caught up, and Melanie was oblivious to her world changing before her eyes. We’ve been here before. We liked it here. And this is what we feel is missing from the new season.

        I have yet to look at the new season and say, “EXACTLY!!! I feel you.” or have the slightest urge to tell someone how much this episode connected with me. I, and the other 7.5 Million viewers, are missing from this season of  The Game….so far. I don’t relate to a wife sneaking a DNA test without her husband’s knowledge. I don’t relate to guy’s sleeping with their boss’ wives and best friend’s girls….I know it happens, but I can’t relate to it. We know that Melanie isnt practicing medicine, and Kelly is starting a reality show, but what exactly does Tasha do? This is called The GAME but only once have we seen them in a jersey. I am looking for where I belong in this new season. Like Melanie, I just want to return home like I am accustomed to doing and relate.

Episode 4 begins in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. #GameOn Bitches!

LMAO!!!! At the tweet “I’m Free, bastards.” I have a friend who may tweet that because he has a Malik Wright complex every Tuesday. Funny if Hosea tweeted that under his real Twitter name. I am really loving this look on Malik/Hosea… really sexy. WOWZERS!!!!! Did she really just bring up Chris Brown crying on TV? HOT DAMN! The Game is going H.A.M!

Umm…. I have to admit that I am going to steal the hat switching act. Though schizophrenic in nature….it is quite hilarious and effective.

So…..mama knows best. Malik should have done damage control. You cannot make me believe that the league will protect you over protecting their investment, and yes…. those are two different things. The real league makes me itch when it comes to how they protect their investments and how the players get away with murder, rape (Rothenburger), and spousal abuse (NAME A PLAYER). And though Malik is the center focus of this particular episode, 15 minutes in and I am thinking that this episode is dragging. Just not getting it.  And this scene with Meagan…..what is her character’s name?…is showing me just how serious this show is getting. It’s no longer a Dramedy. I don’t think that it works as a drama. *sigh*

I am trying not to complain…. let me try to be constructive…. I only have 8 minutes left to do so. *double sigh*

WOWZERS!!!! Derwin didn’t show up?!!! Okay…. I RELATED TO THAT!!! Hot diggidy damn! I related to something. I related to needing someone to be there, them saying so and not being there. My heart sank at the sight of the empty chair. WOW! THIS is what I wanted to feel. This is what I wanted from Season 4 of The Game. I RELATED TO MALIK!!!! Hallelujah! My prayers have been answered. *sigh of relief*.

My Grade for this Episode: C+ . I still think that it took too long to get the information out. The scenes were dragging and it was too damn dramatic. I think that the use of a linear plot also slowed the story down. In previous seasons multiple plots were going at once and that was believable and kept the speed of the show going.

Next Episode: Okay…. I see Janay is still holding a grudge…. but this contradicts with what Tasha told him in this episode. Didnt she tell Derwin to go home to DJ when she had her mother hat on? Or has he not had visitations around Melanie? I am so confused. And Terrance J is back? Okay…. *sigh* I’ll watch it.

Sincerely,
