    The plots of the two episodes available for review were standard and sometimes underdeveloped soap staples, but they're well handled by the attractive cast. [28 Jun 2000]

    There are things to like about the new Showtime series "Soul Food" ... It's just that the writing, the editing and the camera work are not chief among them. ... The series's aims are laudable. But ultimately, it's the execution, not the intent, that will make it a meal. [28 Jun 2000]

    There's nothing wrong with sex, but much of it seems gratuitous here, thrown in not because it's required to tell the story but to needlessly indulge in the freedom that pay cable affords. It detracts from the heartwarming story rather than embellishes it, pandering to viewers as if the people at Showtime feared no one would watch unless there were at least a few "booty call" references.
