"I love this show! I'm a huge fan. I love the story line, excellent writers, captivating acting! I'm glad they show it on BET, however, myself and ALL of my peers would love to see new episodes! We all agree that we relate to the characters because they are in our age group and experience what we experience; similar to what the show "Soul Food" did for my colleagues who are a little bit more "mature" than myself. Does anyone one know how we can get this show back on the air?! Who do we need to beg?! I'm so happy that the DVD is FINALLY going to be available for us to purchase! I can honestly say that I KNOW for a FACT that this DVD set is going to make huge sales! After watching just 1 episode, I was hooked (not in a bad way)! Please bring our show back, Ladies night is not the same without it! Our boyfriends and husbands even watch it. It's so much I have to say about this show because it's truly a favorite of mine and all of my friends."
I need more of THe Game!!!

"This show is great. I love Melanie and Derwin. The drama and realism is great. I am so sad they took it off the air. I would consider getting HBO or Showtime if they showed it. They need to put this show back on air it gave a lot of young actors a chance as well as it was one of the few diverse shows on television!!!"

"Thank goodness this set reached me before the crippling snowstorms in the Northeast did!!

I didn't watch this show regularly when it aired and since I miss more re-runs than I watch, I decided to buy the set. This season is a hilarious representation of the lives of professional football players & has become my entertainment crack!

I got sucked into the lives of wide-eyed rookie receiver, Derwin Davis & his "Girl" Melanie Barnett as they struggle to fit in with fellow players, players' wives/girlfriends, image consultants & agents while fighting to maintain their relationship & down-to-earth values. The ups & downs of their relationship are balanced out by the lives & problems of 2 of his teammates:

Jason & Kelly Pitts - married for 7 years, Jason is fearful about the impending end of his football career & having never won the championship while Kelly battles her feelings of resentment towards Jason for his controlling behavior; and

Malik Wright & Tasha Mack - star QB & his "Momager". Malik at 25 yrs is living it up as "The $40-million Kid" but wonders if it's time to cut the apron strings while Tasha fights to prove herself in the business world as more than just the lucky woman who gave birth to a star athlete.

I completely enjoyed my marathon viewing of the first season of this show while trapped inside by the snow and recommend that those who enjoyed the series, GIRLFRIENDS give it a chance.
