Cedric Delivers Entertainment For All
21 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Soul Man looks like it has a lot of potential. It's witty, clean, well thought out, and good for the whole clan. You'll recognize several faces from the movies in it, as well as some up and coming comedians. It touches a little on the congregation culture, but isn't preachy.

I'm getting to really like TV Land. They are bringing comedies that hearkens back to a simpler time. That time was before I was born...but what the "hey?"

I would recommend a look. The pilot was decent. Cedric has always lived up to his name. I won't do a spoiler, 'cause it "got lost in the move."

I'm putting it on my watch-list!
