I really am fed up with this show and I tried to hold on but it is not the same that it used to be. It stopped being a comedy and turned into a drama. It is too heavy. I just want to laugh again.

It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

In short, You didnt have to sit through the whole thing to catch the jist of this episode. So i will save you the time. In short, Derwin said that he was going to have a small poker party with the boys. TeeTee invited some chickenheads over, unbeknown to Derwin. One of the hoochies made some magical brownies which Jason ate and Derwin got drunk and Malik sulked the entire night, but not before pouring champagne on one of the girls Tupac style.

I know, I know, I know. I have not been on in two weeks because  I was in California performing. So, my performance and travel schedule was much more important than me hitting the computer to blog about a show I am unsure as to whether I like it or not any more.

I have no clue what happened either. Maybe I should On Demand it.

I am lost. Why is Melanie a fashion designer all of a sudden? Oh wait, Brain fart. This was the Sun Beam charity fashion show.

I need Tasha to pick a hair length and stick to it.  But at least it always looks fresh! And I am loving these long earrings on this short hair. And Tasha and her ghetto ass eating these Sour Patch Kids. And Saint James turned up at the fashion show. Okay, so he is a gigolo? And Tasha is paying him to have sex and to remain exclusive?

Last week was boring as hell. Please dont make me hate this episode. I mean, I keep wondering how Kelsey Grammar could let his show go down the drain so much.

It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

Really! Star Jones is interviewing Malik? And Malik is now living in a bathroom. Wait, did she just say “ you only have one peepee”? And what a magnificent peepee it is!!!

Why in the world would Melanie be sitting at home joking on Malik’s interview? And they are joking so hard on Malik and Tasha. Damn shame. I mean they went in hard. I give it to them, that was actually funny.  And then Malik and Derwin are sneaking to call each other. This is hilarious!

Okay, so I give this episode props for starting off somewhat funny. Writers better not fuck it up. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

Malik’s last day in is house and he is just chillin? Lol. Funny. TeeTee comes by to check up on him. Damn, that must suck. Why does TeeTee look old as shit this season? He went from looking 18 to 35. Read the rest of this entry »

Okay, so why must Chardonnay have to be so stereotypical ghetto? I mean, we want her to be black but not GHETTO!!! Couldn’t we get an intelligent black girl to be with Jason? And I don’t mean you can’t be intelligent while leaving in the ghetto….but I mean, why must she be hood. BWHAHAH! Jason said, “…after the annulment we should probably date each other.” Where they do that at? But Chardonnay says that it is not a good idea. Awwww, Jason caught feelings for a chicken head!

Episode 2: Know Your Role

Episode 3: Classy vs Trashy

I’m not even home.I found a friend’s house to watch this on so I can blog from my phone. CALL ME VICIOUS! 

It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

Tasha’s hair is on point. Oh snap! It is great to have Jazz (  Tae Heckard ) back! Who lives in a hotel? I’m confused.

And here comes NeNe Leaks. Lawd, does she really have a clothing line or is this just for the show. Please say it is just for the show. I really cant take it if this was real. Did NeNe just say “vulumptuous”? Yep, she did. SMDH. But, on a stranger note, this is the first time that I have ever thought that NeNe has looked so slim!!! This black dress is vicious.

Okay, so it took us 3 episodes this season before we got to see the Sabers in a jersey or even seeing anything football related. I mean, this is called The Game and not Shit that Goes on Outside of the Football Season.

This new dude, Qwon, is fine as hell! We got a sneak peek of him at the end of last season, but it took 3 episodes before we got to see him? I think they forgot how dramatic they ended last season. I thought that Qwon would have been more important than he is. Dont make me attack these writers, you know that I am good for it! So they made a big deal about him being with Camille and the first time we see him he is no longer dating her? THEN WHY MAKE IT SUCH A BIG DEAL?!!!

I have a hard time telling how much time has lasped this season. Usually, from the first few seasons each episode was like a week apart, these episodes are like skipping months. So confusing.

My homegirls are in here talking about Raheem Devaughn and his music so I totally missed this whole seem between Derwin and Melanie.

Who is Chardonnay’s friends at the table? The female looks familiar. KEL from Keenan & Kel!!!!! He is looking sexy. But I can’t even drool too long because I know he has kids. I dont do baby mama drama. lol. BWAHAHAHAH! One of the guys at the table called Jason a “brother” and they all clapped! lol.

Oh Lawd! So, Melanie couldnt come to the Sun Beam meeting because she is having invetro? Wait, are they in Melanie’s house though? So, all of these women were let into Melanie’s house to have a meeting, that she cant attend, because she is having an invetro appointment? *side eye* I know, I know….they used to meet up in Kelly’s house, too, before she would get home.

Now these designs that this Sweetscott guy came up with were okay, very couture. So this Heather chick is another Sun Beam who tried to take over the fashion show and she brought in this guy to show designs that she felt trumped Tasha’s. So they took a vote. By a show of hands, more Sun Beams want to see Tasha handle the show.

So Jason was in the mall at a DTLR store ( great product placement) and walked out as the sensor alarm went off. Now that he has been harping on his new-found blackness, he tries to pull the race card when the white sales lady let a white guy pass. Come to find out, the sensor went off because the sales clerk is new and she left a sensor on one of Jason’s items. No need to raise Johnny Cochran from the grave. It was a false alarm. Just like he walked out of the mall and almost got hit by a car and the person inside called him “darkie”! IN WHAT WORLD is Jason’s powder ass a DARKIE!!!!? FIRE THE WRITERS!!! Y’all are trying too hard. First you get rid of Kelly and now you are trying to put Jason on the backside of the “paper bag test”? Fuck outta here!Where ever you are trying to take his storyline… you are trying too hard. You are turning him into a caricature and not a character! Please stop it, and stop it now!!! There as NOTHING wrong with Jason before.

All of these dudes in the Saber locker room are fine as hell. So Derwin tried to bond with his teammates and Qwon told him to stop asking him out because it is starting to look suspicious. Qwon is obviously opposed to being Derwin’s friend. And Malik just has to stab the knife in his back even further. Shame.

Yet again, Jason is taking this black stuff too far. Did he just ask Chardonnay how does it feel to be “regular” black? And the kiss between those two was sooooooo random and awkward!

So Melanie needs to rest, under doctor’s order. And now Tasha is trying to have Jodeci come to the fashion show. And to bring in the peace Mel settles the fashion show dispute with the Sun Beam bi-laws and says that she will be taking over the show. Tasha takes this as a personal attack and digs into Melanie like she stole her virginity and sold it on eBay. OUCH! Tasha didnt have to go there, but we know how these writers will make these characters say about anything these days.

Is it just me or didnt this show start off rather sitcom-ish and now I feel like I am watching a black soap opera? I used to watch The Game to laugh and forget about my day. Now I can turn on Basketball Wives or some other hood show to see the same things. I remember when The Game was different. THAT is why we wanted them to come back on the air, not with all of this unnecessary drama. I know what is missing, I just hope that they are able to bring back the very essence of what we loved and now are starting to miss.

Sincerely,

Episode 2: Know Your Role

I am so happy that I get to relax now and watch the show as I blog.

 It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

I REALLY hate this Rick Ross fool.

And Tasha changes her hair about as much as Mo’Nique at the BET Awards. But this full wig is fresh! Where ever she got this wig from, she needs to pass the business card on to Tyler Perry for his next movie, because their weaves ALWAYS look jacked.

I also love how we are on the second episode and we have no clue WHAT time of the season we are in. Are they in the  lock-out? Off Season? What? I swear, the longer BET has it, the further away from “the game” we get. But I progress….lol Read the rest of this entry »

The Game: Season 5 Begins

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 10 January 2012 at 11:01 pm

Episode 1: Season 5 Begins

The commercials have made me anticipate this season even more. I almost barfed in my mouth just a little when I saw that NeNe Leaks will be on this season. I mean, didn’t she DOG Sharee when she wanted to be an actor? And then she turns around and features on the SAME show that Sharee featured on? Lol. All I can do is laugh at that muppet. Lol.

I am also excited to see what Brandy will have to do with this season. To say that it is chalked full of surprises is an understatement, to say the least. But it doesn’t matter to me……..

The day has come!!!!! It’s Game Time!!!!!!!! #@TheGameBET

It opens with Melanie admitting to Derwin having an abortion. To Megan laying on the floor with Tasha and Malik discovering that she is probably dead, and Jason in a hotel in Tijuana,Mexico trying to figure out when he got married. This…..is already going to be scandalous!!! Read the rest of this entry »

The Game~ Worth Watching?

Pre-Season 4 Recap:   Dont Call It a Comeback Pt1           

Recap Episode 1: Don’t Call It a Come Back  Pt2                                                              

Recap Episode 2: The Game                                                             

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.

The Game: Derwin’s Got Sum ‘splaining to Do~Ep3

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 26 January 2011 at 12:02 am

Need a recap? Or need Russ Parr Morning Show to pay your cable bill? Okay, here ya go, Check out my blogs on the first two episodes here:

Episode 1:  Don’t Call it a Comeback <~Click Here

Episode 2:  The Game~ Episode 2 <~Click Here

So, I saw the previews for tonight’s episode last week and almost dislocated my knee to reach the remote to rewind. I must admit, I am in therapy for having watched it 20 times. Yes… I am a tad bit obsessive compulsive. DON”T JUDGE ME!!! I did it for you. Who else is gonna keep it real with your ass? But I digress. Okay. The marketing team did a great job of chopping up scenes that my God Gut ( that’s what Ma Dear use to call it) was telling me didn’t go together. So, with my Pandora station playing in my ear…. let me speculate on tonight’s episode.

So, First off…. why is this girl in their house? Who is this girl you wonder? Well… that is what I am for. After renewing my Black Woman Intuition and activating my Go-Go Gotcha Bitch, I have discovered…and this is just a speculation… that the mystery woman in the previews is none other than JAZZ! All of my The Game fans know exactly who Jazz is. I think her ghetto name is Jazzamena something WhoGivesAFuck, but she was the girl at the table with Javon (Bumper Robinson..I think that’s his name) during Melanie & Derwin’s engagement dinner at Malik’s house. Yeh…THAT BITCH! The one that everyone on the team has slept with. So, supposedly Javon proposed to her… soooooo what is she doing in Melanie and Derwin’s house? Yes… can’t you tell I’m ready to fight the trick off of GP? I know she is a character.. DIDNT I TELL YOU I WAS IN THERAPY?! So… This is why I entitled this blog Derwin’s Got Sum ‘splainng to Do.  I can’t wait!

Okay…side note: I left home this morning and forgot to set my DVR, so I drove home, set it, and went to a performance and will still try to make it back to watch it in real-time. BEcause if ‘AIN bitch on TWITTER spoils this for me…. I….wooo saaaahhh. I told you I was in therapy!

(Made it in the house with 5 mins to spare, stripped, changed in to comfy clothes & managed to get Chipotle on my way home. Your girl is BAAAAAD!)

The show will start in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, #GameOn , Bitches!

FINALLY!!!!! Malik and his mama speak!!! It took 3 episodes. That is some straight mess! So, it took him 2 years of this black hole for him and his mama to cut the umbilical cord? He doesn’t even listen to his mama the way that he use to. THAT’S NOT RIGHT!!! Why do I have a feeling that I’m going to yell a lot during this episode?

YES!!! I called it!! That is JAZZ!!! I’m a true The Game fan. Top that bitches!!!!! But really, why is she okay with her husband calling out the stats of anther flunkie? There is NOT that much self-esteem in the world. I know for a fact that God kept that kid of hubris for himself. For the slow folks…. google hubris! Ummm… who is this Rick Ross , Larry Hoover, Big Meech, MC Hammer looking motherfucker? His beard reminded me to schedule my bikini wax….damn! Please do NOT tell me that this look is coming in style. I’ll watch a marathon of Let’s Stay Together before I allow black men  to start doing this! Dont make me do it!

Hooooooooooooooooooooold the fuck up! Did Melanie take over as Sun Beam president. LMAO!!!

Ummm T-T…..Not dyslexic chimps! Okay…wait… T-T’s name is Terrance? It took us four years to find out what his name is. Okay… Malik and T-T just need to kiss and make up.  And this bug-eyed bitch that is Malik’s assistant is scaring me. MAKE HER BLINK!!!, LAWD , PLEASE MAKE HER BLINK!!!

P.S> I love the slight plug of the iPad Touch.  The Game must be PAID!!!!

Okay, that brains joke.. DEAD! Like Men on FIlm… “Hated It!” I see where you TRIED to go with that, but it was a no go. Maybe the pick up was too slow. Comedy has to come faster than a virgin in the grasp of Super Head. What? I know yall saw the video with Mr. Marcus…. I just heard about it. I mean really… isn’t this another scene that they are trying to catch us up on? I mean, hasn’t Jazz been a player’s wife for 2 years? WAIT! Did this bitch just call Derwin “baby”? LMAO!!! NOW THAT SCENE ON THE STEPPING STOOL WAS COMEDY!!!

Wait… is that a NUDE swim suit or is this Uncut? I’m is so confused-ed and wanting to go to the gym. Hell.. even I know that this bitch aint doing her job! LMAO!!! “Don’t think I didn’t notice that you only clapped your ass 3 times”

Oh lawd! I’m calling child protective services!! Just for Javon’s lil boy to even be in the same scene. Speaking of child protective services.  I SWEAR JAZZ LOOKS LIKE NICKI MINAJ! I was trying to put a finger on why I was itching! True shit… I have broken out into hives. I APPLAUD THE CASTING DIRECTOR! She was one pink weave track , a facial expression stolen from a seizure patient and a turrets induced vocal inflection away from being Barbie, Bitch. So….I agree with Melanie’s reason for being upset about Jazz trying to be a role model. And Tasha made a good point. Is the coochie the only way a woman can make it in Hollywood? WOW!!!!

Melanie shaking her butt. Ummm ( I love you Tia)…..but erah ummmm. HELL NAWL!

HELL NO! Rodney King, get the fuck back in the car Malik. Wait… that’s it?! Lawd…. can we still some time from Let’s Stay together and make it an hour show?

Ummm… where is the preview for next week’s episode? The marketing team is playing with my damn emotions! Oh wait… there it is. I cant remember what is supposed to happen next week.  Okay… it doesn’t matter. I will be watching. The only thing that I ask for next season… don’t wrap things up so swiftly. You are solving problems that was big enough to remain for 2 years in one episode.  I still have your back. Thanks for being back.

My over all grade of this episode: C+. Something that use to be there isnt there any more and I just cant put my finger on it.  It is slowly coming back…..and I mean slooooowly. I have faith that you will get it back. I just think that there is too much going on. The sets arent the same, the relationships arent the same…its just too much to swallow all at once. I know we are complaining, but you know how black folks do when it comes to new shit. We’ll never like it off the bat. But….. next season better be better. Now, touch the screen and agree!!!

Sincerely,

~*MY Mother’s Daughter*~
