Episode 4: The Game~ Worth Watching?

        Okay… usually my intros would be filled with witty banter and clever wordplay that would make a Sylvia Plath read seem joyous. But today… I had stuff to do. lol. I had to live my real life and I just got home from work. So, you’re just gonna have to deal with a tired artistic woman who is doing this because I like to make people like my homegirl from high school, Cristina, laugh and give me her blunt ass feedback the day after. LMAO!!! YEs… this is the best that you may get today.

        So, I really couldn’t remember what happened last week so I am sitting on my plush Ikea bed watching it again. I don’t know how I feel about that. I use to remember everything about this show and now I can’t even remember a week back. WOWZERS! But after watching a few moments of it, I remember that it was slow as hell, yet at the very end I ended up feeling as if I connected with how Malik felt by Derwin’s not being there at the conference. Yes, one redeeming factor. So…..was it worth watching? I guess, erah ummm, let me keep thinking on that.

       I really only saw Tasha Mack complaining that her money was hood rich and that she was proud of it….so I really have no clue what this week is supposed to be about. Oh yeh, Janay doesn’t want her son near the DNA police either. I guess they are working their way back to the multi-plot scheme that we grew to love. While I’m on what we grew to love… predictable ass sets. I think the only repeat sets that have made it from Episode 1 to 4 has been Tasha’s house and  Derwin/Melanie’s livingroom. I need to become familiar with things.Not even the characters are the same as we remember, so please give me a stable set….a foundation of sorts. Its starting to look more like a reality TV show, which doesn’t sit well with many palettes or aesthetics, than a sitcom or drama.  TREAT ME LIKE A BLACK CRACK BABY IN THE HANDS OF MADONNA OR SANDRA BULLOCK!!! SAVE ISAIAH, BITCHES! SAVE HIM!!! Dont make me call Kelsey Grammar! I’ll do it… you know I will. Speaking of white people, where does Kelly live? Hell, where does Jason live? OH LAWD!!! They’re turning this reverse vitiligo having Brittany into ISAIAH!!! Okay… I’ve had enough… ready for the real thing.

Show starts in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. #GameOn , Bitches!

*Side eye at the opening scene* Wow! I’m not liking that Melanie is so open about disliking church. Before you didn’t know what she was and Derwin was just so strong about being a Christian. They are making her look like such a hoodlum now. Not sitting well with me. Why is that a part of her character that they have to bring out?

Speaking of bring out….sooooo last we saw Janay she was upset with Derwin and planning to send him to court. So when did she change her mind and let Derwin spend every day over the house while he lies to his wife? Melanie would understand that in order for him to be with his son he has to spend time at Janay’s leisure. All I have to say about this…. REAL BLACK MEN, DONT TRY THIS SHIT AT HOME!!! I swear, you will come home and have to choose between Taraji in I Can Do Bad All By Myself in the bathroom with the radio or Regina in This Christmas with a bottle of baby oil & a belt. Translation, negro don’t do it.

Side Note: Both of those women DID the damn thang!!! You hear me?  I could watch both of those scenes on repeat and never get tired. *Standing O*…okay… back to the regularly scheduled Take 2

Someone watch my back while I sit in these bushes and aim a gun at Kelly Pitts for over acting!!!! And get the car started as I reload to take aim at Tasha Mack. This is too much. There were subtle ways that she could have retaliated at Dontae checking her purse strings….this is a pointless plot. Well, not unless Derwin drops her and she loses her money. And I would have popped her in her face for calling Janay’s attention in the restaurant knowing that I didn’t want to start anything.

Speaking,again, of punching someone in the face….. I OUGHTA KNOCK THE HELL OUT OF MELANIE!!! You don’t let the sideline hoe know that your man is lying to you. I would have mentioned the whole “Thank you for letting DJ go to Disney World with us” thing, but as soon as Janay mentioned she didn’t know anything about it…. I would have kept the rest to myself and handled my business when I got home. I mean, what of  link does Janay’s webcam have where you can view it on the world wide web? More females need to get that kind of access to their men…lmao! Oh lawd…. was Janay about to have a Lady in Blue moment? Damn, the negro apologized….lol.  But I understand….. and then again I don’t. No matter how many times Derwin came to your house, he is still married.

My Grade: B+. This one had more of the multi-plots that we are accustomed to. I could connect on some leve with Janay’s point of view…. however far-fetched to why Derwin had to lie about it. I need Melanie to be stable just a little bit… I don’t know who she is yet. The game has changed her too much. But I guess that is life….and maybe that is why I am fighting it so hard. I want Tasha to relax in herself more and not broadcast, and I want Kelly to get hit by a bus. But… the B+ is because I am enjoying it. It’s not quite Big Mama’s home cooking, but it is Auntie Junie mimicking her recipe and I can respect that…at least its all still in the family.

Next Episode: I cant remember… I am over here laughing in my own right. Is it just me, or does the woman sitting on the steps listening to Malik look JUST LIKE USHER’S BABIES’ MAMA?!!! I mean, it is a rehab clinic… no telling what being broke could have Tameka doing. lmao!!!! RUN MALIK!!! You saw how she sucked the life out of Usher!!! RUN!!!! Okay, these are just jokes. But I want to see why Melanie is going off on Kelly, and what happened to Tasha and Rick Fox that it has taken him 2 years to call her when in last season he was showing up to her house after the wedding. Hmmm… a must watch! I see you trying! Keep it up!
