The Game: "We Gotta Stop Meeting Like This" Review
Not About That Life
Picking up where we left off, Tasha is knee deep in a love triangle with “Pookie” and her on again off again Rick Fox.“Pookie,” (what kind of name is Pookie for a grown man) senses something is awry with Tasha since she decided to stay in New York longer than expected. After a couple of matching half tattoos, “Pookie” admits that he wants to be fully committed to Tasha. For a man who graduated from the School of Hard Knocks, he presumably falls for Tasha’s horrible lies, her not explaining why she walked in with one shoe on, her not wanting to have sex, and her forgetting that she joined the flower of the month club before she left to New York. I understand love is blind, but *insert your favorite blind celebrity* would be able to see those half truths a mile away.
Bryce and Kierra try to avoid each other, even though they apparently they shop at the same grocery store and Bryce just moved into her building. Kierra must had made some serious money as a child actress if she can afford to live in the same building as the number one draft pick. Their scenes are still dry even though Jay Ellis seems a little more comfortable in front of the camera.
I don’t understand why the writers of the show felt the need to introduce a conflict such as Bryce having a one night stand with Kierra’s friend, when the audience knows these two are going to inevitably going to be together. A better conflict would had been that Bryce had a girlfriend, I feel that would had been more believable as something Kierra could get past more so than what we’re subject to now. Furthermore for someone who was picked on Bryce has so much confidence that he will get Kierra that it’s hard to believe his apologies.
Last week’s season premiere was viewed by 2.5 million, which was down from 5.3 million a year ago. And I’m willing to assume the ratings will probably drop again for this episode. But that doesn't matter since BET has already ordered a seventh season of the show. That should tell you the state BET is in for original programming This episode was weak, and didn't explain much, like if Jason is so horrible at journalism why would Bryce grant him an interview at all, why was Malik and Kierra hanging out and how small is San Diego?
