The highly anticipated season 5 of BET’s scripted series The Game premiered last night, and the reactions to the show were mixed but in my opinion, last night’s show was garbage!
The Game’s director Bille Woodruff decided to take the show in a slightly different direction from the past 4 seasons. For starters, the show was lost without the wit and dead-on comedic timing of the sexy Brittany Daniels (Kelly Pitts).
Director Woodruff decided to water down the intensely independent Tasha Mack (played by Wendy Raquel Robinson, above right), and give her more emotions and feelings. And just to make sure we understood that Tasha Mack’s character has grown (and is no longer funny), Kanye West’s anemic single “Lost In The World” played annoyingly in the background of her scenes (Oh it was so annoying).
The newest addition to the cast, Brandy Norwood, left, added absolutely nothing to the show as bartender Chardonnay. Her faux hood character was extra, annoying, over-the-top and the scenes with her and Coby Bell (Jason Pitts) dragged to a crawl.
I wasn’t impressed with last night’s show but let’s see if it’ll get better.
