    Racism isn't about calling other people names. It's about ignorance and arrogance. It's about thought without reason, acts without rationale, humans without humanity. Aaron McGruder goes to great lengths to keep this show balanced while never pulling a punch or missing an opportunity to point out some of the ridiculous behavior our society performs, is forced to endure, and at times, fosters. I've read his strip for years and watched the show since its premiere. Every episode has a message, like a sub-urban Aesop's Fables. Sometimes that message appears sugar-coated to help ease its reception. Sometimes it appears in a stark, cold contrast to your preconceptions about the world around you. To be able to roll all that into 22 minutes of brilliant animation and still keep the theme enticing is a daunting task that McGruder masterfully achieves. His writing is more than proficient and his eye for production and design in this animated series disclose the depth of his creativity that we weren't always able to grasp in a 4-pane comic.

    "The Boondocks" is a tremendously funny, "no holds barred" TV series that addresses issues of race, racism and race relations via the personal relationships between and among its characters. It is definitely not politically correct and some might even be offended by its biting satire and well deserved "shots" at white and black culture. Still, while I find the show to be "roll on the floor" funny, there are very poignant moments that have produced a lump in my throat (See "Return of the King", an amazing episode that is truly "must see TV" and the series’ finest moment to date. Another classic episode from Season 1 is "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus"). I am thrilled that the show is now available through iTunes. I have been a fan of The Boondocks" comic strip and books for years and was concerned that the characters might be "watered down" for TV; however, my fears were unfounded as creator Aaron McGruder has maintained the comics relentless and irreverent tone (although I have found that the TV show is not as overtly political as the comic strip, which rivals "Doonesbury in its humorous assessment of American politics). Although "Chappelle's Show" and "Chocolate News" have effectively satirized racial issues, neither of these series has done so as boldly or adroitly as “The Boondocks”. Absolutely brilliant!!!

    The show is hilarious and should 100% be put back on. Adult swim what are you doing🤦🏽‍♀️. The reboot on this show should be the exact same except Huey should be 14 while Riley 12. Everyone still look and sound the same, but this time put 2018 problems in the show just like you did when the show first came out.
  • In 2017

    This season is one of the best seasons in all of Boondocks. It seems more adult than any other adult animated series and I can watch it again and again. New to the Boondocks series? Start with season one!
