‘The Game’ Premiere on BET: Season 4, Episode 1: TV Recap


After the CW Network canceled "The Game" back in 2009, it seemed as if the half-hour dramedy was dead for good. Now almost two years later, the show is back with all new episodes on BET.

The premiere of season four (appropriately) picks up two years after season three ended. To say a lot’s happened with the characters in two years would be short-changing the changes.

Derwin and Melanie, the show’s main characters, are two years married, but now Melanie — who spent the previous three seasons studying to be a doctor — is a housewife and a step-mother to Derwin’s two-year old son. Melanie is suspicious Derwin’s son — who he had with another woman in the middle of a short-lived break-up with Melani — is really his son, so while giving the young boy a bath, Melanie takes a swab of his saliva and goes behind Derwin’s back to get a DNA test.

As for the rest of the cast, there’s still plenty of drama to go around. Tasha Mack, agent to both Derwin and his teammate Malik (who is also Tasha’s son) is dating the much younger Donté (played by BET personality Terrence J). Tasha is doing her best to suppress her true feelings for Donté but when she discovers his ex-girlfriend is none other than Sheree from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" (played as herself) who is also older than Donté, Tasha responds emotionally.
