Who gets the condoms from the pharmacy; Boyfriend or Girlfriend?

 

If you haven’t been following the latest season of MTV Shuga, you really should get your TV series game checked and this is no joke. If you read my last review, I sort of implied that it wasn’t doing so great on the adrenaline bursting part CHECK HERE, and by a stroke of fate, Episode 3 lifted the anticipation a notch higher.

Review

I must state first that I am more satisfied with this episode much more than the previous episodes. In this episode, we (audience) are made to respond consciously to more relationship related questions but this time as it concerns gender roles; who should do what in a relationship, know what. What’s more, this episode  takes us on an euphoric ride back to high school; misinformation, infatuations and more serious issues like bullying and insecurity. Most captivating for me is the issue of gender roles hence the caption of today’s review.

Favorites again has to be Leila (Osunde) and Tobi (Egbuson) and that’s because their relationship is most relatable. In this episode, Tobi as assumed from the end of episode 2 has come around and even refers to Leila as his girlfriend. It comes as no surprise as the idea of getting SOME has been softening the hearts of the Male specie since zero zero decade.

This season also ups its game with making necessary scenes more sensual. From the start of the episode, I had imagined that a replay of episode 1’s many left to the imagination sex scene between Faa and Tobi would be relayed but to my perverted surprise, I was thrilled to see all that conservative sensual stuff.

In all honesty, Egbuson is an amazing kisser and you know from the way he puckers his lips and grabs Leila’s. It’s a PRO something guys!

If you have seen the episode in question, do you agree that the chemistry in that scene is thick enough to question celibacy? Words like “Pull Out Game”, “Your hotness dey cause am” can take your hormones by the neck…Scriptwriters, ekuse oh!

Pardon me, this no action thing is trying to mess up my career. Back to MTV Shuga and gender roles, Faa (Oladipupo) and Ebisinde (Alvin) ensure  you struggle with the question of roles but from the family position. We see the helplessness of Faa who has been blacklisted and isn’t making money to care for the family and Ebisinde’s need to prove that he can take care of his family recalling the words of their deceased mom…

“Mama Talk Say Real Men Dey Take Care Of Women Wey Dey Family”

What’s more, if you recall, in my last review, I queried the purpose of Faa’s father tearing a piece of paper.  This episode satisfies that curiosity. Faa’s father is a gambler with his specialty being betting and the piece of paper was his betting slip.

Honestly, with each released scene, I grow more respect for the script writers of MTV Shuga season 6. The revelation that comes with each scene is truly mind-blowing and that’s maybe a little exaggerated but get my point…

On seamless delivery, dialogue, character delivery (emotion and dialogue) of subject matter, directing, editing,  subject matter addressed,  Episode 3 was a thrill. Forget I said I had complaints, MTV Shuga season 6, episode 3 will satisfy your BASIC entertainment and informative needs.

Amazing stuff!
