The Game Season 5 Premiere Recap (And Video In Case You Missed It)

Unless you're just NOT a fan of the hit show The Game, just got out of jail or simply don't know anyone with cable, you've probably already seen the season 5 premiere.  If you haven't, you can check out the full one hour episode (and my recap) under MORE DISH. 

Let me first say that I absolutely LOVE the show and have since the very first season. Therefore, I might sound a bit biased in my review.  ANYWHO, here we go!!

The show was amazing, I loved every minute of it!! Wait, let me take that back... it did irk my soul to see Melanie walking across that football field in the intro.  I don't understand why they think it's okay to use that SAME freaking intro, I need something new and I need it ASAP!! I am soooooooooooooooooo glad they brought more comedy this season and while I don't need a cue to laugh, the laugh tracks were definitely missed last season.  I'm glad they brought it back!! Funny how simple things can be so major. I don't really feel a need to go allllllll into the details of the show (since it's viewable above), but I do wanna speak on a few things.

Number one, let's discuss Mel and Derwin...

Everyone has been sitting on edge trying to figure out this whole abortion thing!! I was shocked as hell last season when they threw that out there and left us confused for months.  So, after they determined she had the abortion...why was Derwin so upset with her? Okay, I could understand if it had been HIS child that she aborted without telling him, but he got over that faster than he did when he found out it was Trey's baby. Dude started throwing extremely low blows. That "now you can't have our baby" comment could have caused that scene to go a whole different direction (like them throwing blows). Then he didn't even come home that night.  She then had to wake up ALONE and start decorating for HIS child's birthday party by herself. Whew honey, that was a lot. When they discussed rather or not he would have accepted her back after having someones child, I could have sent the writers an Edible Arrangement or something. I love that they put it out there how we as women can accept so much and if/when the tables are turned, men aren't willing to take anything close to what we deal with. Mel was right, he probably wouldn't have taken her back after having Trey's baby.  Yet, she has to deal with Janae and picking up lil DJ from the Arby's parking lot.  Let's not even mention that she has yet to have a proper wedding because Derwin had to leave when DJ was being born.  Now, I'm not saying that Melanie shouldn't accept DJ, she knew what she was getting into and honestly... that whole situation was jacked up from jump.  All I'm saying is that the situation is difficult and I can totally understand the pain she must feel seeing her husband with a child (that he had years into their relationship), and she is having trouble having a child herself. Oh well, glad they knocked out the whole abortion issue by the close of the show.  Speaking of knocked out, the way he hit Trey was a bit wrong, but oh so sexy LOL. When he hit him, I yelled "why'd he do that?" My friend said "sh*t, he didn't bring a baby."  I thought that was pure comedy.. so because he didn't bring a baby, he needed to be knocked out? LOL!! Anywho, let's talk about Jason and Chardonnay.

That story line was a bit stretched but hey, it's a sitcom! Jason is still hilarious and gives me a good laugh almost every time he comes on the screen.  I'm curious to see how he'll handle this whole discovery of internal rational issues. This marriage thing could be good or bad for the story line.  I'm thinking that Jason and Chardonnay's relationship will blossom into something that I might like.  I still miss Kelly (Britney Daniel) as Mrs. Pitts, but hey... it just makes the show more real. Just cuz we like certain people together doesn't mean it's gonna work. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen with these two.  SIDE NOTE: Brandy did a very good job in her role as Chardonnay, I was proud of her.

The Macks, gotta love em!! I am SOOOOOOOO happy they didn't make Malik such an a-hole this season. The fact that Tasha is really stuck between a rock and a hard place (Malik and Derwin) is gonna be an interesting plot for the season. We all know that the "family first" motto can sometimes have you FACE FIRST in the dirt. Plus, it just shows us AGAIN how women are always the ones expected to give in or accept things.  Didn't Malik fire Tasha first? Yet, you see how hard it is for her to leave him even after all of that. I hope Tasha takes TeTe's advise and goes back to Derwin. Uhhh, was I the only one that saw something going on between Tasha and TeTe?  He seemed to be a little more concerned for and into her than normal.  Malik and Jenna, LOVE IT!! Malik finally really cares about someone other than himself. I hope she doesn't bring him back into any BS and I hope Malik doesn't screw Tasha over.

Okay, I think that's about it.  Oh, I can't leave without mentioning the fact that Tika Sumpter's  (Jenna) body is A-MA-ZINGGGGGGG!! OMG and the skin!! Besides that, I don't have much more to say.  Again, I loved the show and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.  So, what did you think?
