What Did YOU Think Of "The Game"?-- My Review


In the words of Ms. Tasha Mack "Game On B*tches".... I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the show!!!! The cast came back and brought their A game!  Check MORE DISH to see my review of the show.  If you haven't seen it yet, you might wanna wait to read.  Of course they'll be spoilers.



First off, I love how they did the two year time lapse. It made up for the time that they've been gone and allowed for all the characters to grow. Yea it was a bit cheesy to hear a character run down the accomplishments of another character, but that is what gave us all the info we needed to pick up where we left off.  The writers filled us all the way in on the changes that took place within those 2 years.

The biggest change is that Derwin went from "Ding Dong" to "That N***a".  In prior seasons, that was Malik.  Now, Malik is the underdog and also stepped up as the biggest A-Hole of the show.  His character was NEVER humble so I'm not shocked that it went down hill.  Looks like getting rid of Tasha wasn't such a great decision.  In this case, he should have listened to the old saying "Mama knows best."

Kelly and Jason... this story line is slick bothering me.  I guess I can understand how hurt and angry she is after the divorce (and all she went through in her marriage) but her new attitude is a bit TOO angry for me.  She is also SUPER damn messy from what I see thus far.  That ish she pulled when Melanie called about the baby was MAD WRONG (and calls for a beat down).   I have to admit, I'm digging Kelly's new style.  All that makeup tho, its a no go.  Oh, another no go would HAVE to be the new Brittany.  I want the old Brit-Brat back pronto (please and thank you).  Jason is still Jason, and I love that.  He was never one to change during the other seasons and they kept at it this season.

My girl, Tasha Mack... I STILL love her.  However, I'm super hot about that black and mild that they just threw all in the mix.  I mean really, what was the purpose of that?  Was that to "ghetto-fy" her a little more?  As if going in her trunk and calling on Pookie wasn't enough.  Besides that, I wanna know what happened to Rick Fox.  If they answer that, we'll probably all have a better understanding of how Dontae (Terrence J.) came into the picture.  What did you guys think about Terrence J. as a new character?  Personally, I think I'm gonna like him.  It was most def strange to see him in that role, but he did a great job.  Once I get beyond seeing Terrence J. of 106 and seeing Dontae, we'll be alright.  I'm sure some of y'all will feel the same.  My older sister doesn't watch 106 and didn't know who he was, so she automatically liked him in the role.  After watching the show a second time, it wasn't so strange to me.  It's most def gonna take some getting used to tho.

Whewww honey, you know I had to save Derwin and Melanie for last.  This one here is one helluva story line. I love how they are such a hot couple and how they went from living comfortably, to balling the hell out.. and they did it all TOGETHER. While they have all of that, Melanie still has to deal with D.J. and Jenae.  At first I thought that the two (Jenae and Melanie) were all good, until I saw that look on Melanie's face when Derwin went to the car with Jenae.  Oh, and when Jenae pulled that bish move and went and copped the SAME bag as Melanie.  That was SUPER lame and shows that she just might want a little of what Melanie has.  Anywho...who was mad at Melanie for swabbing lil D.J.'s mouth?  Not I said the cat, LMBO.  I'm sorry but hey, as his WIFE, I think she had the right to know.  Yes, she should have suggested that when he was fresh out the poon, but whatever.  Now, the next question is what was she supposed to do when she found out the he was supposedly not his child?  What the writers wrote in was right on the money cuz that was SO a Girl Melanie move.  But what she SHOULD have done (after redoing the test at least 5 times) was talk her husband into them finding out the truth TOGETHER!! The writers did their jobs cuz they kept the viewers on pins and needles the entire show. Everybody was SO glad that the baby wasn't Derwin's.  While lots of people on Twitter, FB and at the watch party I attended were all ready to throw Jenae to the wolves, I wasn't buying it LOL.  We took a vote at the house to see who all believed that the baby wasn't his and 8 out of 10 thought he wasn't.  My sister and I knew something wasn't right tho.  Jenae has never been there for Derwin's money and I just didn't see her as being that grimmy.  We have to keep in mind that Jenae wasn't some groupie or jumpoff, they were in a relationship.  She actually LIVED with this man.  Pooch Hall killed that kitchen scene, he had all of America about to cry with him, LOL.  If this were REAL life and what was supposed to happen really happened... The next show would start out with Melanie saying "Baby I f***ed up", but I don't think that's gonna happen.  I hope it does, but im not sure if it will. 


One thing that made the show stand out to me is that the story lines were not unbelievable.  Everything that happened (the quick athlete come up, the quick drop in career status, baby mama drama, lost friendships, etc.) all happen in the world we live in.  As we watched the show I was LMAO at all the "oohs and aahs" coming from around the room.  Although I knew it was a hit, it was confirmed when EVERYONE in the house said "I can't wait for next week" or "I can't wait to see whats gonna happen."  When I finally logged on to Twitter, there it was again.  Of course there were the ones that hated the show but that's a given. I hope they didn't give us a great start then give us bull throughout the rest of the season.  I so don't think that's the case, but the show gets two thumbs up from Diva Dish Talk and I'll be watching every week to see.

Now... anybody watch Lets Stay Together?  I missed it, I was too busy watching The Game again, LOL.

Couldn't wrote it better myself chic but I am not feeling the new Kelly either! She is due an ass whoopin or two before the end of the show! But you and sistah were right on little DJ w/his cute self, poor Girl Melanie and her dillema because that child is not ever going to go anywhere but if she don't get her shit together she may! As for Malik, his career is on the brink of being washed up LoLs and poor TT! Jason still a fool w/it and I'm w/you, ORIGINAL Britt-Brat please and thank you! BEST FOR LAST, very proud of Derwin and his come up because he's always been solid as a man and as a Christian so its deserving and very becoming of him to be so in control, SEXY!!!

Alot of women who are ride or die for Melanie disappeared last night. This goes to Melanie not really being the supportive wife..She always has to prove something. You have Derwin, love him, support him, and be happy. She one move away from joining Kelly. The writers did do a great job of taking each character and evolving them in some sort of way. From Malik's uber assholedness *yes its a new word*, Kelly's bitterbitch antics, and Tee Tee's new independence even though he's forever loyal to a fault. The two new characters, that look like they will be reoccuring, Terrance J and Meagan Good fit in well. The chemistry was excellent. The camera angles did bother me at first having an Young and the Restless feel, but thats just adds to the evolution of the show. With time, thngs evolve. Hopefully this season will continue to have more twist and turns yet stay true to the realness that makes the show what it is.

I am one of the BIGGEST fans of “THE GAME” and was praying they would come around and air again. It once made me nervous when I met Pooch himself in Atlanta and he confirmed it was trouble with the show airing again. I am so happy to see that things were ironed out. Moving on……..
I would like to say I love the blog Dawn Diva. And, I normally do not post or reply to blogs because it always becomes a debate, however, I could not resist. I totally agree with Dawn Diva the writer did a magnificent job on the 2 year timeline.
I love that they made Derwin “That N!&&A. He seems very humble with being the “that n!&&a”, and I so admire that character. In the prior seasons, I was able to put with Malik boastful ways. Now, Malik’s role has become beyond the doubt too horrendous for me, and he is defiantly headed for self-destruction.
I enjoyed knowing that Tee-Tee has grown to be his own man with his Cluck Truck.. That was too cute.. If I ate meat I would buy from Tee-Tee.. LOL

Kelly and Jason are clearly still in love with each other and will be together before long. Kelly new look is Nasty (a new term for hot, nice, diva’ish, sexy..etc). I love her new attitude… It seems like she standing alone and not running up behind the crowd of “THE CLICK”. It’s like Kelly is who she always wanted to be without the thoughts or controlling ways of Jason Pitts. Kudos to Kelly.. “ YOU GO GIRL” in my Martin Lawrence Voice. Yes, I must totally agree with the Diva on this one Brittany is a NO GO.. Where in the hell did they find that ALL black little girl trying to fool us.. Please bring back the OLD Britt, or at least give us some little mix child with reddish brown hair… Even though, Jason is extremely cheap I just love his character.
Tasha Mack… Is one of my favorites and I may be bias because I see a lot of myself in her, but this is my girl and I love the role. The black and mild didn’t too much brother me as much dating the young guy. I am not a BIG fan of Terrance, I guess because he seems so much as a child to me and I can’t take him seriously so his role didn’t do anything for me. I must ask…. Didn’t he have a body on him? OHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, maybe I need to rethink this one about him and my girl Tasha.. I’ll let yall know the next episode about this one. I can tell how I felt about Morgan Good, I love her as a person but she so reminded me of Robin Givens which I HATE.. Not a good look at all.

Derwin and Melanie are my favorite couple on the show. I have cried many tears in hopes of them getting back together from past episodes. I truthfully think Melanie is wrong for wanting to know if that Derwin’s baby, because she accepted that when she said “I DO”. At that point it was THEIR baby and she could have loved that child out of respect and love for Derwin. How can you say you love a man and not his child?? I didn’t care for that and the swabbing his child mouth was uncalled for. How will Derwin ever trust her again around his child? I know I wouldn’t because it’s clear that she don’t accept this child as her own. If I was Jenea and found out about this I wouldn’t allow my child around Melanie ever again until he was old enough to speak. Derwin clearly said in the last episode that he didn’t want a blood test, and Melanie did it anyway. That was clearly wrong. Now, do not get me wrong it’s okay for Melanie to want to know the truth but she should have come to Derwin as his WIFE not a private I.

I do not like Jeana that much and I believe she is a gold digger even though her father has money. From my point of view she only dates guys based on their status (from past episodes). I do believe she may have loved Derwin because he was the lowest paid person she ever dated. : ) I just think Melanie need to get over that she will never be the first to carry Derwin baby, but she was the first to be Mrs. Derwin Davis and he loves her. Its funny both of these ladies seem they want what each other has and that’s pure comedy but real life all at the same time. To end this blog message why in hell did they let she -male Sheray play a part in this? They so could have called me.
