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.
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.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
