Editorial Reviews

The long-awaited second season of Soul Food has arrived! Picking up where the first season left off, the Joseph sisters--fiery Maxine (Vanessa Williams, formerly of Melrose Place), controlling yet vulnerable Teri (Nicole Ari Parker, Remember the Titans), and the baby of the family, Bird (Malinda Williams, Daddy's Little Girls)--cope with the wake of a car crash that has left Maxine's husband Kenny (Rockmond Dunbar, Prison Break) in the hospital, while Bird's ex-con husband Lem (Darrin Dewitt Henson, Stomp the Yard) blames Teri's boyfriend Damon (Boris Kodjoe, Brown Sugar) for causing the accident. From there, the series settles into its turbulent groove: Kenny finds himself drawn to his secretary at the towing company; Teri fights to be made partner at her law firm; Bird and Lem fight over the significance of visiting a strip club; Maxine gets into local politics; Lem's store burns down and Lem is accused of arson; Teri suffers from worsening panic attacks; and Kenny and Maxine's son Ahmad (Image award-winner Aaron Meeks) wrestles with school, adolescence, and the fallibility of his parents. The recurring theme, of course, is family obligations--what siblings owe to each other, what parents owe to their children (and children to their parents, as Kenny and Lem each struggle to make peace with their flawed forbears), what husbands and wives owe to each other. The commitment to these characters' interconnectedness, explored with sincerity and care by the solid cast, is what makes Soul Food more than just a depiction of middle-class life. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Based on the critically-acclaimed film of the same name, SOUL FOOD 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excited & Disappointed August 9, 2007
I've always love this series from the first day it aired on Showtime and I'm been anxiously awaiting the release of the series on DVD. I bought season 1 and was scared that they'd never release season 2. Well, now the time has finally come. I've purchased my copy of season 2 and I was a bit disappointed. I had already heard that some of the music was editted out, but unfortunately, some scenes are as well. I've only been able to watch the 4 episodes on the first DVD and the 1st episode on the 2nd one. What didn't make much sense is. the singer Kina is announced in the club, yet you don't see her nor do they play her music. They also cut out scenes where Teri meets Kristine at Damon's and the scene where Bird returns to the shop for the 1st time since the accident. Also, in the first episode in the season, the opening credits say there will be an appearance by Nicki Micheaux (Lyla), yet, I never saw her in that episode. These are just some things I've noticed so far, and I haven't even seen all 5 discs yet. This has disappointed me quite a bit. However, it's still better than the BET version, so it's worth the money. I just don't understand why was it such a problem with contractural rights that the series couldn't be released, uneditted like 'Friends' or 'Seinfeld'. The same thing with 'Girlfriends'-they had all sorts of issues with DVD release and contracts/rights, so it took forever to release the series. Is it that people on the black tv series' just can't get along? What is the deal?

Anyway, I'm still very excited to have season 2 and hopefully it doesn't take as long to release the remaining seasons. I'm also hoping they're not as "chopped up" like they did with season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on More Light and Love!!! July 4, 2007
I am so excited to have this second season available. It is unfortunate that it took this long, but sometimes good things have to come in their own time. The first season has brought many thoughtful, reflective, and inspirational moments into my space. Yes, periodically I have to watch it to get my fix on just how valuable that program was to a lot of viewers. Universal themes handled with savvy, never pretending that we are more than human after all. Stories of a continuing sereis that capture the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful of what it means to be human. Human foibles are what they are, but they are not the end of the world. Soul Food helped us to see that we do make it through even the tough times.

Welcome Season Two!!! I've nearly worn Season One to shreds. I've been waiting patiently for your arrival. I know what you brought before and anticipate that I will be equally delighted as the circle continues. I hope Seasons 3-5 will closely follow the release of this season. Thanks to all the people who bothered to petition for the release of this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally all that letter writing paid off!!! December 17, 2007
I was one of the people who kept writing letters to Paramount inquiring when they would release Season 2 of the series. At one point I did receive a response and they claimed they had no plans to release season 2 because of poor sales of Season 1, but I refused to give up, and wrote them again, and again, and again. Not to mention signing the peitions to have the show released. I guess there is something to being persistent!!! I was overjoyed when I finally saw an announcement saying Season 2 was being released and I made sure I had my money put aside so I could buy my copy right away.

Unlike many of you that watched the show while it aired on Showtime, I never saw the show. It's hard watching on BET because they edit it so much I know I'm missing some good parts. I was anxious to know what happened after the car accident. I finally got the answer and so much more.

Being I never saw the show when it originally aired, I honestly don't know what I'm missing with regards to scenes being cut, or the music. I could tell with at least one episode something was removed, but aside of that I enjoy the DVD set very much.

What I would love is some commentary from the actors. How about some scenes that got cut before it aired, gag reels? Some extras with the actors discussing how they felt playing their characters would be awesome.

So many things were touched upon in Season 2:
1. Damon finally branching out on his own to go into sports management.
2. Byrd trying to expand her business, but not jeopardize her marriage and family life.
3. Lem's mother, whoooooo she is quite a character.
4. Bird dealing with her bladder issue after the surgery, and Lem reaction to her problem.
5. Teri and her anxiety attacks.

Yipeeeee! The second season is here!
I've already ordered season two. My only complaint is that the season 2 dvd box is different from season 1. I wish either season 1 was slimline like the season 2 box or the season 2 box was big like season 1. Oh well, at least it's available now.
