The Boondocks Has Lost Its Way [EDITORIAL]




Any hope that the Boondocks could pull it together was effectively shattered by week two. For a show clearly stuck in the past, an episode about Good Times is only mildly interesting in theory, and the debt situation that Granddad found himself in wasn’t enough to hold my attention. It also points to the scatterbrained strategy of season four. Even Uncle Ruckus looks like he’s ready to walk from this train wreck.

The Boondocks used to be mentally stimulating, but the best part about it is that the lessons weren’t on the surface. There were actual layers to that sh*t. Now it’s just a shell of what it used to be, and for that Adult Swim should feel embarrassed.

McGruder’s brainchild deserves better, and so do the fans.

    Retread or not I enjoyed the first episode for what it was…..episode 2 was another story.
    Such a shame.

    I’ve enjoyed the first two episodes, but to each their own. People bitched about the previous season as well, as they did not feel it was as humorous as the first two. But what many fail to remember is the Boondocks is not just a comedy it’s also a political satire. Not as funny as the first two seasons, I agree but still funny.

    Aaron McGruder is the only thing that can save that show now. Too bad.

    I totally LOVE the Boondocks, but this season has been a disappointment. They need Araron McGruder back.
