The Game "Getting To Know All a Butt You" Review
99% inspiration 1% perspiration
I think The Game doesn’t give its audience enough credit. When it was canned by the CW, instead moving the story forward, the show came back dealing with the same problems that were apparent when it was pulled. The writers seem hell bent on showing us everything that happens between the characters.
Jason and Chardonnay after a year together, don’t know anything about each other. Chardonnay has college debt, goes to church on Sunday, not pilates, and a brother, who happens to be in jail. Meanwhile Jason tells Chardonnay his middle name and lies about having a vasectomy, because he’s not sure if he wants to have more kids after finding out more about Chardonnay. The question is how are two people who have been married for a year give or take have not had these conversations? What do they talk about? And why are they still married if they don’t know the little details that make people fall in love with them?
Chardonnay catches Jason in his vasectomy lie because Nacho Libre came out in 2006, not even Jack Black remembers when this movie comes out. Chardonnay gives Jason an ultimatum, Jason has to agree to have kids or she’s leaving him. This prompts them after being in a relationship after year to have an intimate conversation.
The writers have run out of ideas for Malik. Malik pitches an idea to Shark Tank’s Daymond John. The “Staykini” promises to eliminate wedgies, which apparently is an epidemic that has gone under the radar for too long. Malik’s idea and execution is stupid, and waste of Daymond John and the viewers time. Malik is having a mid life crisis, acknowledging that his football career is almost to an end, and he has no idea what he is going to do when that time comes.
This episode was ok, but I feel like the storyline was filler and the Jason/Chardonnay problem of having another child could had been dealt with much differently. Nothing was pushed forward and I still long for the original “Brit Brat.”
