So what are fans saying about the latest season?Â According to BET's Blog on the subject, fans who left comments had mixed reactions to what they've seen for the start of The Game season 4.
Several comments seemed to point out that the new character developments and serious nature of the storyline are hurting the show early on.Â One commenter, with the handle "girlgirl" said:
"The new season of the game has failed my expectations. None of the characters seem the same. I know its been 2 years but dang can we get the comedy back, the camaraderie is gone. Everything is too dramatic and serious. I'm sad."
"THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO [be] HISTORY......Were we watching an episode of The Basketball Wives???? Or was this suppose to be an episode of The GAME?"
Not all fan reactions were bad though, as Shatrice20 praised the show with:
"bravo bet bravo i loved it."
Hope also had positive words for the first episode saying:
"Loved "The Game." Bravo! So glad it's back. It's wonderful to watch an African American show with a story line/plot--"
Viewers of the BET series The Game will likely need to warm up to this latest season.Â Hopefully, it can continue with its popularity that attracted fans in the first place and made it a hit show for BET.Â Otherwise, it may go the way of several other television shows and find that it will be The Game over.
