 Meet the Players of the Game:

(l to r:) Tasha Mack (Wendy Raquel Robinson), Malik Wright (Hosea Chanchez), Kelly Pitts (Brittany Daniel), Jason Pitts (Coby Bell), Melanie Barnette (Tia Mowry), Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall)

At 10pm EST it was Game Time. All the cast members of our favorite team left the CW,  and were traded or better yet became free agents, and were picked up by BET. How is that for football lingo? The Game had the best promos and teasers ever seen for a TV show. Now that the anticipation is over, and we can all stop holding our breaths, it’s time to decide if the Season 4 premiere matched all the hype.

 The weekend marathons on BET leading up to tonight should have caught up viewers with the lives of all the characters. Don’t you miss Malik’s homie Tee-Tee and all the Sunbeams? 

After a 2 year hiatus there were some questions left unanswered.

  • How will Melanie handle being stepmom to DJ (Derwin Jr)?
  • Does Derwin still have any type of relationship with his baby mama, Janay? Is there baby mama drama? 
  • Is Derwin still broke?
  • Did Tasha Mack and Rick Fox reunite? If not, whose her new love interest?
  • What is the status of Jason and Kelly Pitts?  Do they still love each other?
  • Will Malik settle down or show love for the big girls again?
  • What role does Megan Good play, and are there any new cast members?

And many more questions and assumptions were left to make. Now let’s sum up what the premiere did answer.


Melanie gives the baby a paternity test and breaks the news after having the baby in their lives for the past 2 years. At the end of the episode, Melanie’s med school friend calls and says she made a mistake running the test, and Derwin is the father.

Tasha Mack is a cougar! We knew she had it in her. She is cut buddies with Terrance J (who could pass as Trey Songz’s twin)from BET 106andPark.

Kelly and Jason appear to really hate each other which is under cover built up sexual tension. Until the makeup sex occurs, Kelly is going to drag Jason through the mud in her new reality show. As a sneaky surprise Sheree Whitfield (Real Housewives of Atlanta) made a quick cameo. 


Malik is banging the team owner’s wife (Megan Good) in bathrooms. Tee Tee sells chicken wings out an icecream truck, and finally stood up to Malik.

What do you think about look and style of the characters?  Tasha Mack has new hair.

Melanie’s hair is long again, beautiful and highlighted.

As far as the fashion, Melanie has lost the med-sch00l casual look. She’s stepped her game up as an official football wife.

  Kelly Pitts’ hair has a fierce color block chop.  And just when you thought it wasn’t possible, Kelly Pitts’ wardrobe is tighter and more revealing. Her daughter has grown up and become her clone. We will blame that on rebellion and her daddy, Jason, not being around.  


Malik’s  faux hawk is an inch higher. His style is still consistent as in prior seasons with sleek, fashionable swag.

What a great start for season 4!  The premiere of The Game did not disappoint. Are you hooked already? The first episode left a shocking cliffhanger. Viewers can look forward to drama, comedy and maybe even a few tears – like Derwin’s tears in this episode.

It will be worth a cry if Melanie & Derwin’s marriage doesn’t last, especially after Maury calls and says DERWIN YOU ARE THE FATHER – for real this time.
