Soul Man

"The Soul Man" review by Suzanne
Wednesdays 10/9pm on TVLAND

This just isn't very funny. It needs more jokes. Perhaps it will get better, like "Hot in Cleveland" did. Then again, this show doesn't have Betty White...

It stars Cedric the Entertainer as a preacher, Boyce Vallentine, who's a former R&B singer.  His family is still getting used to his being a preacher, and his dad was a preacher as well.

The first episode is about how the church ladies are not going to his wife's new hair salon.  Apparently Boyce was a character on an episode of "Hot in Cleveland" (though I don't remember). At thend of the first episode, there was some good singing.

This is a light and airy show without much substance, and to me, without much humor. Clearly TVLAND is trying to make a black version of its other shows, but this is not nearly good enough. Maybe they should hire someone who worked on "The Cosby Show" or one of those old shows like "Sanford & Son" instead.

The opinions in these articles are those of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of The TV MegaSite or its other volunteers.

We need more episode guide recap writers, article writers, MS FrontPage and Web Expression users, graphics designers, and more, so please email us if you can help out!  More volunteers always needed!  Thanks!
