    Hey! LOVE the show! well at least I used to. Me and my mom would set aside our wednesday nights to watch the show because it was so filled with drama and so filled with suspense. But now, it seems like it takes half the show to get a point across. Like the episode on Wednesday December 11, 2013, when Angela was cussing out Marcus about Karen, It took her around 7 minutes to actually TELL him what she heard. It gets sickening. But ouff!! Leslie getting raped? I can't wait to see what happens next season. But i cant stress enough how much i HATE TODD!! He sucks up all the drama that SHOULD be in the scene and throws it in the garbage! Like when Kesha was cheating on Richard at the ATM, i know that in season 1, He would've went off and crazy, but Todd had to act like a goofy idiot the whole time. But it seams like this season is about laughter when it really shouldn't be. What i really want to see is Jennifer's baby daddy come into the picture. Maybe Joseph find someone new while Leslie tries to get him back after her traumatic experience of being raped, "Karen" be seen in the new season to prove that it wasn't "just a dream", and Kesha and Richard to surprise everyone and actually work things out. and hey.. what happened to MJ???

    i love this show but i just wish it was back on TBS on fridays like it use to. PLEASE. But let me say i'm in love with the show. im Obsessed

    I had hopes for this show. I did like it and I just absolutely hate it now. I don't find anything funny about a woman about to be raped in one scene and in another scene the man that loves her who knows something is wrong with her is being objectified by some horny f** chick. Todd's character is completely and totally annoying, he would have gotten his b*** whooped in real life. None of this is funny, Jennifer is annoying, Todd is annoying. I mean this last episode is supposed to be serious and you have idiots goofing off and I just think it's beyond stupid. I'm out.

      Well I disagree with you, boo-boo, i actually like it, its Tyler Perry he has a lot of humor and he's funny, so of course there will be funny moments. Too be honest i love Tyler Perry and his work. But WHATEVER you say is your opinion, not mine. Just thought i should let you know.

    • boss #1900892

      well you out then nobody really cares he still making his money plus that was a great season finale tyler perry keep em comin

  • Rhonda NC

    I love the show. Todd is way too annoying though; why hasn't he been fired. I can't believe you left us hanging. Please write it so that Joseph is the one to save her and they get back together. I like happy endings. Please get Jennifer a man. It isn't fair that the rich thinner women have a man and she never gets one. He doesn't have to be rich, just good to her. I am a high school teacher and some of my students tell me that I remind them of Madea....because I DON'T PLAY! I consider it a compliment.

    I was on needles and pins when I watched the last episode with Joseph and Leslie. That's how you know he loves her, he could sense she was in danger. Even though she was mean to him and thought he was her stalker. And yes, he kind of got what he deserved since he wouldn't marry her or make her feel like he wanted to marry her, not respecting her religious beliefs and wishes. Can't wait for new season 2014. And, I agree with writer Tina, when is Jennifer going to get a man? And Keisha deserves nothing, but every show has to have a Keisha. Maybe one of these times I'm in the ATL I can meet you. I know you know Bonnie Chaney and her sister Lynn who are good friends of mine. Be blessed.

    Hi Tyler, How are you? I would just like to say I love your show For Better Or Worse, And I hope that you have a season 4 in 2014, You can't just leave me hanging like this LOL!!.. The suspense on Leslie and Joseph hopefully saving her is going to keep me In limbo until next year, and Richard and Keisha I hope he gets a divorce and she gets NOTHING!! And poor Jennifer when are you gonna bring her man In the picture, And Todd a female he Is so annoying, he's worse than an old lady In the window watching her neighbors houses/apts. and talking phone telling all their business LOL, cause he know everybody's business. Anyway I love you Tyler you are an amazing actor, writer and producer. Maybe one day I will get my wish and meet you, cause I am pretty comedic myself.

    Mr. Perry. I thank you for all your contributions to the Arts. they all relate so much to our everyday life. Some are so tense that they are to hard to view. They remind us of our true lives, ones we don't want to remember or admit, "For Better or Worse" reminds me of so many characters that have been in my life. My favorite character is "Tod". He brings a quality of humor which is rare and I feel he ties the the 3 characters together. The beauty salon and all are very representative of Black culture. "Leslie" is one beautiful lady and a good actor also. And of course Angie ties all the ladies together. Please do not leave this series vacant for too long. Thanks for all your work. John

    I love this show! I think you have done an excellent job. Every character on the show exsist in the African American community and it's nice to see them all come together in a comedy.

    Used to love the show waited so long to see it again. Seems like just a filler now and the last show left me not wanting to come back just disappointed. Love your work Tyler but sad in this.

    • Tanya Sacramento, CA #1899607

      Good-bye!! What show should they be on? This show has aproximately 10 people in the cast. The whole show is not bad because of 2 people that you are not interested in.

    • Tanya Sacramento, CA #1899609

      The last message was for "Just Me". Sorry!

  • Just Me Los Angeles, California

    This is the last season for me. I no longer like the show because of Jennifer and Todd. Good-bye Tyler Perry until you can rewrite this show and put Jennifer and Todd on the back burner way way back on the burner. I'M DONE BYE

  • Mzbruce US

    I ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ the show and can't wait until the next season

  • Bryant United States

    I'm not sure about all of the negative comments but, this show is OFF THE HOOK! Mr. Perry this is a must see and I can't wait until the new season starts! Everytime my wife and I look at a new episode of "For Better or Worse" and "The Haves and Have Nots" we say the same thing - "Tyler Perry makes me sick! why does he have to be soo good at what he does". To all the negative commenters...the ratings speak for themselves. You don't get 3 seasons because Oprah likes you...Mr. Perry put in the work and I am greatly appreciative for the image of the Black American he promotes. While I may not agree with EVERYTHING I do believe that his writing is what we need.
