TV Land’s latest retro-sitcom, āThe Soul Man,ā takes us back to the days when black comedy meant a show that was simply flat-out funny.
Cedric the Entertainer stars here as Boyce āThe Voiceā Ballentine, once a sultry R&B singer in the mold of Teddy Pendergrass and now a minister.
Saving souls instead of singing soul.
Only the transition hasnāt exactly been a straight, untroubled path from sinner to saint.
For starters, his father, Barton (John Beasley), used to be the pastor at the same church. Now, with time on his hands, he has some ideas on what Ballentine should be doing in his sermons, in his counseling and pretty much everywhere else.
Ballentineās wife, Lolli Cheap Michael Kors Handbags (Niecy Nash), is still a hot ticket with hot-ticket tastes. His brother Stamps (Wesley Michael Kors Handbags Uk Jonathan) doesnāt have a lot of time for all this church stuff, and his daughter Lyric (Jazz Raycole) Michael Kors Bags is, well, a teenage girl.
As this suggests, what we have here is a classic family sitcom, with jokes that come from the quirks of the characters rather than a Michael Kors Handbags On Sale mandate that there be a sex line every 30 seconds.
In fact, there are sex jokes. But
theyāre one piece of the joke puzzle. The first couple of episodes are almost hijacked by the exasperating Barton and his old-school views on everything.
Like the other characters, though, Barton Michael Kors Handbags is ultimately endearing, making Michael Kors Handbags Clearance āThe Soul Manā itself old-school in the best way.
