Critic Reviews for Soul Food Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

The series's aims are laudable. But ultimately, it's the execution, not the intent, that will make it a meal.

This is one of those rare cases -- a TV adaptation that's an improvement on the original.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Soul Food deploys its attractive ensemble cast in a smooth, gauzy environment that is refreshingly hood-free without being whitewashed. It's pleasant enough, but unremarkable.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

With a sexy, sumptuous look, Soul Food is that rare series that enhances and expands on the movie from which it draws its inspiration.

Eriq La Salle directs the pilot, using a loving hand in orchestrating the many side stories and subplots surrounding the family. Like most pilots, it's a lot of information to swallow, even in a one-hour format.

The drama has done a great job of capturing the essence of diversity among African-Americans, and the season finale goes a step further, illustrating the diversity among believers and skeptics.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

With its focus on universal themes implicit in family life, Soul Food cooks.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Soul Food shows us the range of the African-American experience within the confines of a single family, and most of the time it works well.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Soul Food is a delectable, tender blend of tasty family themes with a sweet religious undercurrent, spiced up by beautiful-looking actors and actresses.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The moments in Soul Food that bode best for the series' future are the ones that don't try so hard, that show the Josephs struggling to remain a family despite the forces pulling them apart.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Soul Food is inconsistent, but it whets the appetite.
