Critic Reviews for The Game Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

This new CW series cranks out brash jokes that evaporate upon hitting the air, winds them into situations where women submit to their men, and leaves no aftertaste when it's gone. It's on TV, but it's never truly on.

Oct 23, 2018 | Full Review…

The humor is dull, the characters are going to grate on you, and their men might as well be cut from recycled cardboard.

Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The Game highlights strong, intelligent women who refuse to fall victim to the pitfalls of living with football players and who strive to build and maintain their own unique identities outside of the supporting roles they play in the NFL franchise.

Oct 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Game lacks the relationships that made "Girlfriends" a qualified UPN hit and the comedy to make it much of anything for The CW.

Oct 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Mowry herself is charming and capable, and Wendy Raquel Robinson has some fine moments as the mother-manager, but it's clear that The Game is to be played on the surface of these potentially interesting lives.

Oct 23, 2018 | Full Review…

It just isn't funny. At all. Ever. Whatever else we may ask of sitcoms, they should at least be required to make us laugh somewhere along the half-hour line.

Oct 23, 2018 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…

The Game commits all the sins you can imagine in a poorly conceived sitcom. It goes for laughs and sap, the world's most dangerous and noxious combination. It's also not funny, believable, interesting or, as previously mentioned, inspired.
