Did Anyone Watch "The Game Of Your Life" Last Night?

Though we try as hard as we can to cover everything that's relevant for S & A, it is inevitable that something will fall through the cracks from time to time. For example, take the NBC family movie that was broadcast last night (Friday Dec. 2) The Game of Your Life, starring Titus Makin Jr.

The Game Of Your Life

Though we try as hard as we can to cover everything that's relevant for S & A, it is inevitable that something will fall through the cracks from time to time. For example, take the NBC family movie that was broadcast last night (Friday Dec. 2) The Game of Your Life, starring Titus Makin Jr. 

The movie, which was shot in Atlanta and produced by Walmart and Proctor and Gamble, dealt with a young black computer geek who gets a "scholarship to an exclusive video game college design program, his future looks promising...as long as he can survive the freshmen project. But when he learns that his father is in financial trouble, he has to make a choice that will affect his future and the lives of everyone around him."

It's not very often (in fact it doesn't happen at all) to see a positive uplifting film on the screen or on TV about an intelligent young black man from a stable and loving family (and with a father to boot), and, believe me, we would've made plenty of mention of it on S & A.; Well that is if we knew about it. Did you?

NBC didn't exactly go out of their way to promote it. But then again, I haven't watched anything on that network in months, so there might have been some promos for it that I missed. Maybe you did; and if you happened to catch the movie, tell us what you thought of it.

This is exactly the kind of TV programing to we keep screaming for to counterbalance all those Real Housewives and Basketball Wives programs that we rile against for presenting us like we've lost our natural minds. But secretly we can't wait to watch the next episode. Which begs the question: If The Game of Your Life had been heavily promoted by the network and we all knew about it, would WE still have watched it or avoided it like the plague?

You tell me.
