The Soul Man - S03 E02


Boyce and Lolli are preparing to attend a fundraising dinner where President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be present, when Lyric brings home her new boyfriend (David Alan Grier), a record producer at least Boyce's age. Boyce pulls the man aside and hints that he should just end things now before Lyric starts looking for a commitment, but the man instead proposes to Lyric at the dinner, causing Boyce to react angrily and get thrown out. Meanwhile, Stamps has prepared a "healthy" cupcake he plans to give to the First Lady, in the hopes that she'll give it her endorsement.

    The good Lord created sitcoms like The Soul Man as relaxing, relatable humor with heart, and Cedric's new creation isn't about to mess with His template.

  • David Wiegand

    This is a family show in the best meaning of the term.

  • Mary McNamara

    Though it never quite hits its stride, the show never pitches us into the abyss.

  • Brian Lowry

    While the two previewed episodes both play pretty broadly--there's also a warm spiritual side, which involves Boyce tending to his flock.

    Variety Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    The show, warm and cheesy, fits right in as another nacho plate on the network's menu of comfort food, another new sitcom that plays like a re-enactment of an old one.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    What we have here is a classic family sitcom, with jokes that come from the quirks of the characters rather than a mandate that there be a sex line every 30 seconds.

  • Ed Bark

    Cedric the Entertainer, Nash and Beasley go with this flow--and flow pretty well.

    There's nothing wrong with TV Land trying to revive the old-school, multi-camera sitcom but the pilot for this show wouldn't have cut it in the 1980s.
