The writing on the game has changed and yes it can be dry at times, but I would much rather watch dry acting then watch reality TV shows where it supposed to be real and see woman play themselves and tear each other down over some men who in actuality do not want to have anything to do with them.
The first episode of the game was okay as I mentioned before I love me some Derwin, I think they should have made that character retire instead of trading him to a less than stellar team, but on the bright side he will be with Melanie while she do her residency. If they had to write some one out of the show, I think the malik wright character should be the character to leave. His off the wagon on the wagon antics over the top and how many women can he really sleep with? Honestly that is getting old with his character. They tried to give him a girlfriend he messed that up. Through out the night he kept referring to him self and being a pawn it seems that line is going to become the direction of the Malik Wright character we shall see.
Another character I would mind if they got rid off is Jason Pitts, easy on the eyes but he still tad bit obnoxious. I love the fact that Brandy is on the show who plays Chardonnay (I still hate her name) and she is married to Jason Pitts and now that he is married to a black woman I thought it would tone him down a bit guest not. What would be cool they bring back his daughter and see how the dynamic between Jason, Chardonnay and Brittney would work, just a thought.
Last but not least Tasha Mack, I've always liked her character and always liked the fact that she is a manager in the world of football. The writers need to shift back to that and hopefully that will happen this season. We all want Tasha to find love however the going back and forth between different boyfriends is a bit annoying. Her character is the backbone of the show and having her weak and emotional over a guy takes away from it.
Overall I like the first episode, my suggestion is since they stripped the show down, the writers should take out the comedy aspect and make it a full on dramatic series. The comedic lines are awkward now since its not really a laugh track. I will still support the game, it not a bad show like everyone is making out to be now that its on the BET network. We have to keep supporting these shows, it sure beats watching reality shows any day.
