While on FaceBook last night I saw countless status updates about the TV sitcom The Game. I don’t own a television, so I felt a little left out of the loop. However, from the play by play posts of the show, I felt as if I was sitting right in front of a TV watching it. It didn’t take me long to realize WHY people were so drawn to it. It was the D.R.A.M.A.!!!!!
The latest statistic stated that 7.7 MILLION people gathered in front of their televisions to watch this show. A show that was canceled after only 3 seasons. So, no wonder they started the first show of the newest season with a DRAMA BANG.
Now for those of you who watched it, if I get this wrong, please forgive me. But it appears that one couple (Derwin and Melanie) is newly married and dealing with the ups and downs of being a celebrity couple. But to add the spice (drama), they are also dealing with a child born outside the marriage. And to top it ALL off, the child may or may not be for Derwin. Can You Say Drama?!?!?!
Some people will say….it’s ENTERTAINMENT. Let me share with you the definition of entertainment. Entertainment – Something that amuses, pleases, or diverts, especially a performance or show. And this show personifies this definition. It certainly amused and was pleasing to a LOT of people….7.7 MILLION people. Now check the next word…DIVERT!!!! Although it’s ‘ONLY’ a TV show….it DIVERTED 7.7 MILLION people’s attention to DRAMA. Imagine a more positive, enlightening, uplifting show that did the exact same thing. But this time it DIVERTED 7.7 million people’s attention to the betterment of humanity. RIVETING, right?
I’m not here to bash the show or anyone who watched and enjoyed it. Nor am I trying to convince someone NOT to watch the show again. I’m simply asking you to be aware of what you allow in your home, in your life and in your Spirit.
Peace and Blessings,
