    Marcus needs to have his wife's back more - that is my only complaint. LOVE YOU Cast of "For Better or Worse". I can 't wait to see more of Angela's son next season. Marcus and Angela and Keisha and the brat are way more entertaining than the girl who wants to marry that guy who clearly doesn't want to get married yet!

    Finally Angela is talking to that "blond" witch like she should! And Finally Marcus is acting like he should with that chick that lied all those years about his daughter

    Hello Mr. Perry I am a huge fan of your work. I however am NOT a fan of how Dominique has been behaving. I am very disappointed in the way Marcus allowed her to speak to Angela but I am EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED in the way she spoke to Angela and Jennifer. I would have snatched air out of that child. Maybe you need to have Madea come chastise her. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do something about that child! I'm still a fan of yours but I think I will have to stop watching if that child is not put in her place. Also please stop making Jennifer seem so thirsty and stupid. She is beautiful and a talented just because she's big does not mean she's desperate. I look forward to the next season.

      I agree with you Seats (Atl) Dominique's behavior is horrible. I have a problem with such disrespect. I understand the character is angry, but I have a problem with a child telling adults "go to hell". I think reality would have had Angela would have verbally set limits with this child. I would not have her move into my home, but encourage and maintain contact. The character has been rude to Angela in prior season referring to her as a whore.

    I really looked forward to seeing the why did I get married duo on for better or worse, but I have to say...the writing is horrible. The acting can't compensate for it either. The cliff hanger of who's your daddy was painful to watch. The actors said the same lines for whole episodes...who does that? Please try harder.

      The acting is pretty awful overall & it's totally CHEESY! But for some reason,I STILL watch it...like watching a train wreck,I am riveted to the screen. LOL...there is no logical reason.

      What show are you watching??? I LOVE this show - I love Angela, I love Marcus, I love Jennifer

    • Kay Los Angeles #1965845

      I love the show just like it is - Tyler has plenty of fans - why don't you watch something that you like? and just don't comment here anymore - you probably haven't even seen the show!

    • Sunny NY, NY #1965869

      Daisy, u hit the nail on the head! I have no idea why I watch. A person walks into a scene and spends the whole show explaining why. I don't think they go by a script either, they prob just wing it lol.

    Dear Mr Perry I love your work and what you are giving to our community. It is indeed a pleasure to be able to view good stories and real situations without hard core violence. It so much talent, I laugh so hard I cry. Very very good therapy. I am so proud of you and Oprah for coming together, you both are on the pulse of the 99%. No body gave anything, you both worked very hard! God is truly working through you both. In this order #1 For better or worse #2 Haves and have not #3 Love thy neighbor Thank you and please stay with OWN Sincerely Alice Fort

    Love Tyler and love his shows BUT.....The show had more substance when it wasn't on OWN. I am not so sure OWN is the right network for him. Too many games are played with season length and consistency and writing is poor and drawn out. This whole season of FBOW could have been condensed into ONE maybe two episodes. People are watching shows like Scandal where the actions, drama, mess & adventure is CONSTANTLY AND CONSISTENTLY on and poppin' !!!!! EVERY episode....they bring it!!!!!! They may keep you hanging....but doggone it when it comes back on all you can say is OMG!!!!!!! That was totally worth the wait!!!!! It is so action packed and intense you have to watch the show three times before you can absorb all of the information, twists and turns---by then...there is a new episode coming on!!! When they go on hiatus, you are actually glad because the season is so intense YOU ACTUALLY NEED THE BREAK!!!!! OWN is TRYING.....but not succeeding!!!! You are going to loose viewers. The show has been horrid this season. It just now got good with the storyline and guess what.....hiatus after next weeks show. What the heck are you and Oprah doing over there.....this show is destined for cancellation!!!!!!

    The season finale is next week I can't believe it !! It was just like 2 weeks ago the 4th season began ! I hope that you make a 5th season because everybody LOVES this show !

  • Cory Thompson Philadelphia. PA

    Very Good show with a few good actors but the laugh machine is the worst. It plays when nothing is funny. For some reason, my opinion, most of the child actors are the most disrespectful kids I've seen in black homes, TV or otherwise, so unreal to me.

  • Margaret Pope Pittsburgh PA

    I love the show, it is the best one I have seen in some time (The Cosby's) was the other. I think it should be on an hour, that how much I enjoy the couples on the show. Joseph and Leslie; Marcus and Tasha are great. Keep it coming, Thanks Tyler
