Pulse Series Review Season 3 of "Skinny Girl in Transit" fails to live up to expectations

While we can't outrightly deprecate the third season of "Skinny Girl in Transit," it is however, definitely not its best.

The third season of "Skinny Girl in Transit" is over? I can barely remember any noteworthy event from the season, unless we are talking about Tiwa's one night stand, which eventually played no significant role in the series.

For a season that kicked off with a promising episode, it eventually turned out to be an underwhelming season which viewers could have skipped, and still not miss any major drama.

The episodes that followed effortlessly put an obvious dent in the enthusiasm that the premiere episode had generated.

While we can't outrightly deprecate the third season, it is however, definitely not the best season of "Skinny Girl in Transit."

Unlike the past seasons, Mide and Tiwa didn't have enough charm or good chemistry to make us care or re-watch any scene.

“Skinny Girl in Transit” kicked off as a series that revolves around an On-Air-Personality, her weight loss journey, and journey to finding love. In season 3 finale, Tiwa finally gets together with Mide who is supposedly this love of her life we have been waiting, but moments that build up to what should be everyone's favourite scene are flat, dull and fails to evoke emotions.

I simply had just a smile on my face watching the banter between Mide and Tiwa while they confessed their love - so much for waiting for this moment. Yes, the playful atmosphere is admirable, but that's the only admirable thing about that 'special moment.'

In comparison to the previous seasons, the  third season of "SGIT" returned with their makeup so much 'on fleek' that it was distracting. Makeup is one of those things that should be applied judiciously. But, for some reason, the makeup artist for "Skinny Girl in Transit 3" didn’t get the memo.

Wosilat isn't funny. The season saw everyone trying too hard to be funny, especially Wosilat and Shalewa. For some reason, the use of their characters for comic relief failed.

From their unnecessary makeup to slapstick comedy, their characters are amongst the major flaws of the season.

The Mide with an endearing poise and charisma was missing in the third season. There was something off about his character. He was just that guy scripted to become Tiwa's true love at the end of the day, when he could have been more.

New characters Nathan and Mohammed were introduced. While Nathan got quite enough screen time, Mohammed played by Timini Egbuson, appeared just twice.

Hadiza and Didi successfully held their now mundane roles as friends and colleagues of Tiwa who encourage, defend and piss her off everyday.

While it lacks the subtlety of the past seasons, the season delivers quite some humorous scenes thanks to Mama Tiwa - scenes enough for the season to be described as 'sort of entertaining.'

Pulse Movies recently published an article on how the veterans saved Nollywood in 2016, and that is what  Ngozi Nwosu is to the third season of show; a saviour.

With all of its flaws, this season was held by the hilarious and talented actress. Even in her exaggerated and cringeworthy moments, she still saves the season.

A poorly scripted and executed season with occasional humorous moments somehow finding its way onto the screen, season 3 of "Skinny Girl in Transit" didn't live up to expectations.
