Editorial Reviews

Soul Food - The Third Season wastes no time in diving into sex, family squabbles, and workplace conflicts--the issues that this show wrestles with so very well. As the season begins, Kenny (Rockmond Dunbar, Prison Break) and Maxine (Vanessa Williams, Melrose Place) have separated and fight bitterly, to the anguish of their oldest son Ahmad (Aaron Meeks); Teri (Nicole Ari Parker, Brown Sugar) is offered a partner position at her former law firm when a powerful New York firm (run by Faye Dunaway, her face a scary mask of too much plastic surgery)--but what she thought would be her dream job proves full of treacherous compromises; Damon (Boris Kodjoe, Madea's Family Reunion), unable to face his past troubles, slips into alcoholism; and while the marriage of Bird (Malinda Williams, First Sunday) and Lem (Darrin Dewitt Henson, Stomp the Yard) seems to have found a steady groove, Bird's potential career as a TV celebrity (and the new relationships that result) threatens that stability, as does a dark figure from her past. Good writing is what makes the turbulent lives of these three sisters and their husbands, sons, and lovers seem endlessly rich. Occasionally there's a forced storyline--for example, Damon is literally haunted by his dead ex-girlfriend--but even that uncharacteristic plot came to a graceful conclusion. If there's a weakness, it's that several conflicts are resolved too quickly; some of the strongest material comes from longer character arcs. There are a number of knockout guests (including Terrence Howard, Hustle & Flow, and particularly Kimberly Elise, Diary of a Mad Black Woman), but it's the regular cast that gives this show its emotional heft; even comic sequences, such as when Ahmad keeps catching his parents having sex, are treated with grounded emotion. At its best, Soul Food offers a more honest depiction of how men and women relate than you'll find almost anywhere on television; the give and take of marriage, with its necessary frustrations and unexpected rewards, is shown in all its messy glory. The Third Season contains 20 episodes from 2002 and 2003, half of which were initially released as the show's fourth season. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Based on the critically-acclaimed film of the same name, SOUL FOOD - THE SERIES reunites the Joseph family in an hour-long drama series, which chronicles the lives of a tight-knit African American family living in Chicago. The series explores, in an honest and touching way, the relationship between three sisters, the men in their lives and their children. The Joseph family faces everyday struggles to which all families can relate. SOUL FOOD is not your typical family… it is simply the drama of a family.

2.0 out of 5 stars SOUL FOOD FANS BEWARE January 25, 2008
I am very disappointed in Paramount/CBS. This series was originally advertised as "The Complete Third Season" which like the "The Complete First Season" was supposed to be made up of the ORIGINAL (unedited) shows. However, within the last few days the advertisements have quietly been changed to illustrate..."Soul Food-The Third Season." SOUL FOOD FANS BEWARE, it appears we are going to get chopped, edited, cut up versions of the original shows with different scenes, music, words, etc. I AM VERY UPSET. I fell in love with the "original" versions of these shows and that is what I'd like to see. I am not sure I will purchase this "third season." I think the studios are misguided in "cheating" Soul Food fans out of enjoying the original shows in its entirety (unedited). I was disappointed in quality of the some episodes of the second season because of the OBVIOUS editing. I wish the distributors would just release the series in it's original form and let us edit it at home IF that's what we want.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 for the price of 1? March 7, 2008
By E.W.W
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well first of all, I am a die hard Soul Food - The Series Fan, and was extremely pleased when the Third Season was released. Yes there is some minor editing, but overall if you purchase this DVD your money will be well spent! This DVD surprisingly contains both Season 3 and Season 4 (20 episodes in total)...check it out. A stellar cast, great storylines, you can't go wrong! Can't wait for the remaining DVD(s) to be released as it has been a LONG wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul Food March 4, 2008
I am a Soul Food Fanatic. This is the best African American show to come along in quite some time. I own the first three seasons and can't wait for 4 & 5 to hit the shelves. If anyone knows of a place to chat about soul food, please let me know. I have several friends who did not watch the show. So I am putting together a soul food night. HURRY UP PARAMOUNT! Release the other two seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars What took so long? December 31, 2007
I think it's a shame we had to wait so long for the studio to release this series. Look at how long we had to wait for Season 2 to be released. People loved this show, including me. I suppose I shouldn't complain since we are now getting the chance to see it all over again. This was truly one of the best shows on TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul Food - The Complete Third Season December 25, 2007
I have been a Soul Food fan since the beginning. I bought the first season when it came out a couple of years ago. I am so excited that the other seasons are available for purchase. I can't wait to own all five seasons. This is a good African American Storyline. It is a must have!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finale - Just What I Expected and More June 28, 2009
Season one was out for a long while and 2-5 was unavailable, then season two was available to be rented. So after I purchased season one, I was angry because Sony would not release the Series for sale. Then after about another year - Seasons three through the finale were available and I watched them all after purchasing the product and it was soothing and wonderful to see that life can have a wonderful ending even on television in the 21st century. The Soul food series was phenomenal and the positivity of a complex black family with its highs and lows made it through with the right understanding of family being the most important component in life. The acting was great and the ending brought closure to the long waiting period for me and it was well worth the wait. Hats off to Nicole and Boris, it was exciting to see a real life relationship evolve and blossom. I pray it always is their focus to determine to truly have a happy ending, by choosing to stay connected through it all. Blessings to all the contributors and those who made a difference in the image of life as it relates to people simply being people.
