I know people thought I was playing when I said I was through watching 'The Game', but I meant it.

You have to know that I was one of those die hard fans who has been watching the show since it premiered as a special episode on the show, 'Girlfriends.'  It was one of those shows that I texted my girlfriends about while the show was on.  I really was emotionally connected to the show similiarly to the way I was connected to 'Girlfriends'.

That all changed when the show went to BET.  Everybody told me BET was going to ruin the show, but I was just so happy to get my Derwin and Melanie fix that I would have accepted it being on any channel.  Well it appears I should have listened to what my friends said.  I can honestly say BET has ruined a perfectly wonderful show.  Don't get me wrong there were some bright moments such as the pairing of Jason and Chardonnay, the possible return of Rick Fox, and Melanie and Derwin's fertility issues, but that was pretty much it for the show.

The funny was gone.

Tasha Mack was no longer Tasha Mack and Malik and TT were no longer the comedic duo that I came to enjoy.

My show, yes I said my show because that's what it felt like, just wasn't the same anymore.  The dismissal of Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall was just the straw that broke the camel's back as far as I am concerned.  The show ended for me during the third season finale on the CW.  I should have just proceeded through the rest of the stages of grief instead of staying stuck on the Denial stage.

So did you watch the premiere?  What did you think?


  1. My sentiments exactly. I didn't watch because I didn't know about it. I didn't know about it because I wasn't even paying attention. I didn't pay attention because they pretty much lost me during the first few episodes with BET.

  2. My Comment-Gail Sanders
    Most of it was ok, TT as the Buuda, no, Malik trying to stay drunk and taking up for Derwin, not believable only thing made since was the blackmail from Parker. Not to sure if I like new draft pick guy and NewNEW (Laura London will always be NEWNEW to me) wonder where its going? I like Jason and Chardonnay(tacky dress and alla) and Tasha Mack was still on very funny!
