    Hello Mr. Perry , I first would like to say thank you for all of the great shows. I love For better or worse but I noticed for the last few seasons Th teen that plays Angela and Marcus's son MJ hasn't been on the show. Is he no longer part of the cast I am just curious.i will continue watching the show but he's such a funny young comedian and I along with my friend that watch as we'll miss lil MJ. Please if you can provide us a response it would be greatly appreciated. Continue with your great work and making us laugh and reminisce lol.

    I love the show but I do not have tivo and when it comes on i'm at work is there anywhere online that full clips are shown.

      Erica, I having been (begging) asking the same question since the first season of For Better or Worse on the OWN network. I don't think the Executives at OWN understand that everyone doesn't work an 8-5. Maybe the feel showing the episodes exclusively on OWN in their designated time slots, they think that will bring in the viewers, i.e ratings. When this show was on TBS it was also On Demand so there was an opportunity to view it at times you were home. Maybe they (OWN Executives) will finally understand the fact some people work nights. Another thing, in my area the OWN Network is On Demand, but the only show featured is "The Oprah Winfrey Show" go figure.

    Mr. Perry, I want to catch up on For Better or Worse but there aren't anyways I can watch them. Can you please consider putting the series on amazon instant video or google play? Also when will A Madeas Christmas the movie be available for DVD? I'm patiently waiting for it!

  • Kima

    I am so disappointed by how they are writing the storyline of Marcus not being Dominique's biological father. Any loving parent of a step child, or adoptive family members know that parenthood has nothing to do with biology! I'm sick of hearing them say she's not his! If that is the case then I guess I can't claim half of my adopted family members! It's bad enough the plot is so slow-going, and the acting is poor...when I began watching I thought I would see a show about Angela and Marcus, my fav characters from "Why Did I Get a Married?" Instead I got to see 2 seasons about the stupid relationship between their best friends, and now be insulted by this ignorance about the paternity of Marcus' child, as if he had nothing to do with the person she will become! I'm hurt by this, as I'm sure others are. Right now this show is only serving to perpetuate the very ignorance that prevents ppl of color from adopting children who need parents! Can't believe this show is on Oprah's network....I'm done with it.

    Greeting Mr Tyler, I am a great fan of yours, I love Have and Have Nots, I used to really like "For Better or worse" you have made it so unrealistic, especially regarding Dominique and her mom. When is her mother going to pay for all her dirt and using people for money. Angela was right when she said You reap what you sow. When is she going to reap I do not want your viewership to think that you can hurt people and get away with it. Your shows is always about someone getting over where is the love.

    • Sunny ny #1965859

      You are solo right Gloria! And ever notice how in the long run, his male characters can do no wrong?! Talk about pushing an agenda-can Tyler Perry Be more obvious!

  • Kay Los Angeles

    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!

  • Kay Wheeler Los Angeles, CA

    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

  • Seats Atl

    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.
