Is it just me?
12 March 2005 | by generalnikkixSee all my reviews

Is it just me or is there ANYBODY ELSE IN THIS WORLD waiting for Soul Food:The Complete SECOND Season??? I really loved the boxed DVD set of the first season(for which I paid $80.00 only now to find out it can be purchased for $39.99) But my God Showtime what in the hell are you waiting for? The OC, Buffy, Starsky & Hutch, Wonder Woman and the likes even that silly show The L word (another Showtime Original) can have there seasons come out back to back BUT a Black Drama like Soul Food has to wait damn near 3 years between "seasons"??? What's the real deal? Feedback from fellow Soul Food Lovers are 100% welcomed. I'm tired of searching through google & different media store outlets, just to hear those dreaded words..."It's not out yet". Now that I've watched the first season, I would like to follow-up with the 2nd season. I watched most of the episodes on Showtime but missed quite a few. Damon and his ex-girlfriend, Kenny with his secretary and etc. Fellow Soul Food Lovers please let me feel your pain so I know I'm not alone.
