Excellent show !
8 February 2019 | by quayratSee all my reviews

I remember watching Soultrain every Saturday. Soultrain always featured the best musical acts and dancers in its time. This series is a great look into exactly how Soultrain developed into one of the best Saturday afternoon dance shows ever. The powerful intro to this series is sadly a stark reminder as to the eventual demise of "Brother" Don Cornelius, the original shows brilliant inovator. The roles and appearance of Don and Gladys Knight are spot on with the current cast. I'm looking forward to viewing the rest of the series. I would love to see an updated version of Soultrain come back to TV once again...But then again I'm not sure it could come close to being as cool as the original.
