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.
