A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Good food and good company make for a great dinner, friendship.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Martha and Snoop are very different but respect each other and have created a friendship that transcends their differences.

Violence

Discussions about guns, jail time, accidents, beheading and cooking chickens, and the like.

Sex

Sexual innuendo (references to body parts and so on), lots of raunchy jokes. 

Language

"Damn," "s--t"; "f--k" bleeped.

Consumerism

References to Twitter, Instagram, cannabis brands; Apple products.  

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Lots of cocktails, wine, mixed drinks; endless references to pot, cannabis used in recipes. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party is a cooking competition starring a pair of unlikely friends. It's edgier than most cooking shows; alcohol is consumed and marijuana is discussed, shown, and used as an ingredient in some recipes. There's lots of sexual innuendo, some cursing ("s--t"; "f--k" is bleeped). Apple products, cannabis brands, and references to things like Twitter and Instagram are common. It's a goofy idea that works and sends a strong message about people from different backgrounds being able to come together in a positive way.

What's the story?

MARTHA & SNOOP’S POTLUCK DINNER PARTY stars cooking guru Martha Stewart and rapper and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg in cooking competitions while teaming up to throw dinner parties for celebrity friends. As they each make their own versions of the same dish to see who does it better, Stewart uses her trademark upscale food expertise while Snoop Dogg contributes his own cannabis-inspired style. They also share some of their own special recipes for cocktails and other dishes with each other. Guests including Wiz Khalifa, Seth Rogen, Ice Cube, and others, who show up to help each host cook their dishes and to sit with them to enjoy the meal. As they eat, they play party games and learn fun details about each other. 

Is it any good?

This fun, awkward series features two celebrities from very different backgrounds joining together over cooking, eating, and conversation. The unlikely pair, who have already appeared together on a variety of media outlets, work well together as they exchange barbs. However, Snoop Dogg's efforts to use the platform to promote cannabis consumption, and many of the innuendo-filled references, can be a little jarring.

On occasion the writing feels forced and the humor silly. Watching Stewart trying to be "hip" is sometimes a little painful, too. But there is also a genuineness when they share their personal stories, especially when sitting around the dinner table. It's definitely a little odd, but it's the weirdness that makes it work. Despite the awkward moments, Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party shows how people with very different backgrounds and cultural experiences can still bond over the time-honored tradition of sharing a meal. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why sharing a meal with someone can be a bonding experience. What is it about the ritual that can bring people together, even when they are so different, like on Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party

  • Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party treats cooking with and smoking cannabis as positive things. Even though pot is legal in many states, is it appropriate to send this message to kids
