A Brilliant Show, Not to Be Missed.

Finally, it's arrived. The Boondocks. It's a great show, but let me tell you who it's NOT for: 1. Racists 2. Imbeciles 3. Overly Sensitive People 4. People with no sense of humor 5. People who despise thinking to any real degree 6. People who love to call black people racist 7. People who love to complain 8. People who love High School Musical and Twilight 9. People who love to talk but hate to explain 10. People who only give the show a few minutes' chance before condemning it to the foul pits of hell...and then proceeding to watch reality television. Honestly, this show is an outlet for the expression of an intelligent group of people who have found a way to both embrace and criticize various topics relevant to society in general, they've merely approached it with a bold sense of humor. From "The Trail of Robert Kelly", parodying celebrity worship/voluntary idiocy, to the genuinely moving and meaningful, "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus", The Boondocks solidifies itself as a rare thing indeed: an intelligent African-American comedy, something entirely separate from the minstrel show-esque, "House of Payne". Give the show a chance. For newcomers, I recommend the following: "A Huey Freeman Christmas", "The Real", "Return of the King", "Wingmen", and "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus". Enjoy the laughter and the insight.


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.

Must See TV!!

"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!!!
