‘Table Of Men’ is a TV series full of drama and suspense. The story begins with Nii Odartey, a common taxi driver struggling to make it in life. Though he is not making very much for himself, Nii is compelled to take care of two children of a friend who has abandoned his responsibilities towards his kids.
One afternoon whilst working, Sandra (Naa Ashokor) picked him for her daily routine. He had to take her somewhere, wait for her to finish with whatever she was going to do and take her back. As Nii was waiting for the lady, Akwasi (Prince David Osei) a businessman drove into the parking lot but started running away as soon as he saw his girlfriend Doris (Kareemah Aguiar) who was forcing him to have a deal with her.
Akwasi then rushed to Nii who was standing beside his car waiting for Sandra, grabbed his car keys and started driving off but Nii also jumped into the car and Akwasi drove off leaving his girlfriend shouting out his name and calling after him.
Akwasi later told Nii to go back to the parking lot and take his car away and meet him there later in the day so they can both take back their cars but when Nii reached the parking lot.
Doris was however still waiting for Akwasi hoping he will come back for the car and as she was waiting, Sandra came back and it turned out the two ladies knew each other from high school. They exchanged pleasantries and as they were talking Nii arrived about to drive Akwasi’s car away but Doris demanded for the car keys and Sandra asked where the taxi was as she was in a hurry to leave ‘6but Nii started showing off claiming the car was his and even asked Sandra if she needed a lift but the lady got angry and stormed off.
Unknown to him, Doris had already called a police friend (Ekow Smith Asante) and reported that her car which was the one Akwasi brought had been stolen. So she then called the police again saying the car had been found and when the police came, he asked Nii to return the car but he stood his grounds that the car was his and after some few arguments, he was asked to go to the police station with them
Proving smart, Nii demanded that they drove in their car and he will follow in his but he however did not end up at the police station but at the hospital as he was called earlier that one of the children was rushed to the hospital.
When he reached the hospital, he was told the little girl was suffering from asthma because she was exposed too much smoke as his father was a heavy smoker. Nii was torn apart as to how he was going to deal with the child’s illness but he was determined that with the help of his lady friend who took the kid to the hospital and even paid her bills, they both could take care of the children.
At the same time, Akwasi who was driving Nii’s car was stopped by Kodjo Papa a teacher who was going for a job interview but despite his big grammar and plenty talks he however did not know where exactly he was going for the interview but after giving the wrong direction and ending up at the wrong place, Akwasi who knew where the school was after all took him to his destination and waited for him to finish so will take his money.
After he was done and they were going back, Akwasi charged him a hundred Ghana cedis but as broke as he was, we are yet to see how he is going to pay that bill.
The four episodes had a very interesting story and it was very exciting to watch. Ekow Smith Asante, the producer really did a good job on it. Though the beginning was a little bit slow and boring, it got better and more interesting as the story unfolds. The characters were very well selected and they all played their part very well. We cannot wait to see the rest of the story.
