    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

    It’s good – I’d recommend it.

I cannot in good faith describe this show as "good" (please see Klein's accent or most of the acting) but I also can't deny that it knows exactly what it's trying to be.

It won't set the world alight, and it's aimed at a very specific audience, but you can't be mad at it for that. The question is whether or not its unashamed enthusiasm for cliche proves too saccharine for most viewers to stomach.

Sweet, endearing friendship drama has mild language.

The show isn't my cuppa, but like its title, it's sweet and harmless enough...

A fresh, appealing cast. A story of community , faith and family. What's not to like. Plus Heather Headley is outstanding.

Despite its tendency to lecture about life and its puritanical look on the adult world, Sweet Magnolias has an undeniable charm and a bingeable quality. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sweet Magnolias is my idea of TV comfort food. Southern charm and wit while something I can watch with my older kids without having to repent the next day.

The show could be tagged a guilty pleasure, but that's an abuse of the term. Bingeing it will just make you feel guilty without the pleasure.

May 21, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sweet Magnolias isn't prestige TV and it ain't trying to be, either. But it's an excellent soap, one that is worth watching if you need some comfort right now.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Magnolias: Season 1

    The show is enjoyable to watch but did have times that weren't very entertaining. I am looking forward to season 2 but not impatiently waiting for it to start like other series I've watched.

    I really enjoyed this family show with stories about the complexity of life. I found the main actors too smarmy for my taste but loved Headly, Johnstone, Elliott and the kids to be excellent. Looking forward to Season 2.

    Absolutely the BEST feel good show I have ever seen. I love every single actor and actress in this show! Everyone plays their role PERFECTLY. Excited for more seasons!

    Waaay too clean for my taste. I don't mind wholesome but this was just eh...
  • Jul 17, 2020
    This show is INCREDIBLE! It's heartwarming but also so real in many ways. It shows how the trials & pains of life can be so overwhelming but with faith anything & everything is possible. It also shows how important genuine friendships & family truly are. Wonderful show, wonderful cast.. just wonderful. I hope to see many more seasons of this show!

    It is a great family show, I cannot wait to see more of it.
  • Jul 11, 2020
    Such a sweet and real soap. Reminded me of Gilmore Girls. I'd give 5 stars if the main characters didn't laugh so often and at inappropriate moments, ends up seeming fake. Other than that it's perfect! Can't wait for season 2!
  • Jul 11, 2020
    I loved this series. It was uplifting and "real". Loved the acting. Looking forward to Season 2.
