We grew up watching very interesting youth-centered TV series which got us talking. At some point in our lives, almost every young guy wanted to walk like Pusher (Things We Do For Love). The characters were so entertaining that we didn’t mind associating our real lives with them.
Several other series came sooner or later. One of such was SunCity. As Things We Do For Love stirred in us that undying passion to experience high school life, SunCity made us wanted to go to university so badly.
Whew! Times have passed. Many series (especially those centered on young people) have come and gone.The latest of such which has been trending on social media for quite some time now is Game Over.
Set in a high school, Game Over relishes the story of Eva, an 18 year old girl who is entangled in the effects of peer pressure because her parents are too busy to have their eyes on her upkeep. With an abroad-based father and a busy mother, she falls into bad company while his brother, Ross, plays similar cards on other young women.
This Green Lemons Production is directed and produced by ClefAboah and written by Constance Ashiagbor. It fields versatile young actors like Adjah Stephen Tetteh and Dennis Cobblah (both of This Family Is Not For Sale fame), Vanessa Ghartey, Jackson Ahiable and Constance Ashiagbor.
Game Over is strictly not advised to be watched because it is addictive. And… I mean addictive! The suspense is so engrossing and the characters are just too real. Every young person would identify him or herself with one character or another and that makes the whole experience so entertaining; the good, the bad, the ugly.
This series has a lot of moral lessons to teach young people.
It is such a relief to have the likes of such content showing on our screens again after the long absence of such. Ghana is going to get talking again. We would be talking about what happens to young people when their game is over!
It starts premiering on TV3 from Wednesday, December 2nd, 2016 at 8:30pm. And did I say no one should watch it? Ha! I mean we all should.We can’t wait.
