With Season 2 in full swing, there have been all sorts of commentaries on the latest episodes.  This commentary looks at the politics of the Boondocks from a fresh light:

In the current media environment with criticism of BET, VHI and Rap music abounding it will be very interesting to see if The Boondocks will fly under the radar this season.

How is this commentary from a fresh light when its absent of all the other aspects of social commentary on the show? Specifically, criticism of the Republican party and conservatives in the form of Bush and Cheney the teenage years; Black apologists who dismiss institutional racism and White Supremacy in the form of Uncle Ruckus and more.

If The Boondocks were in reality what they describe at Afronerd; Mcgruder's brainchild would've been a complete flop instead of the visionary series it seems to be on its way to becoming.

Marriage counseling With A Pimp Named SlickBack: Cartoon Network 2008. McGruder and company haven't missed a step from last season. The mark of a great show is in its supporting characters and in this program there are many great ones. I could see Ruckus and Slickback with their own series in the near future.

Tonights episode was terrific! As has become common, Mcgruder handles a pertinent topic, namely Stop Snitching and provides humor and insight for 22 minutes. We can now add Bush and Cheney: The Outlaw Years to the list of spin-offs that should come from this show.

P.S. Did Reggie ever explain his role as Executive Producer of the show?

I read an online interview with Aaron McGruder that Reggie left the show sometime after he was made President of BET. According to McGruder, he's listed as "Executive Producer" as a contractual obligation.

I wasn't feeling the catcher freeman episode too hot. It started out ok but I did not see too much difference between it and the black movies he lampoons so much? And for those who look for a message in all of their black entertainment what exactly was the message for this episode? Prob will still download it though.

The minute I saw the Catcher Freeman scene where Rukus was telling his version with Freeman acting like a dog/gorilla swinging from the trees I immediately stop laughing not because it wasn't necessarily funny but I knew that it would have been a hellofa lot more funnier to white folks. Like Spike Lees bamboozled I felt bad about laughing at some of the scenes and I get that is part of the desired effect but this episode kind of turned me off as it appeared like this episode was making a mockery of the show itself if that makes any sence. Now low and behold with the new controversy surrounding the show you have white guys defending this show louder then any black media I can remember. I saw one white poster (he had a link to his website that is how I know) on newsarama who touted how could they with all of the black talent that was harmed by these episodes being pulled. Im like wtf do they really care that much about this show or what exactly are they standing up for? The right for niggas to make nigga jokes about niggas? Strange day in America indeed. :-\

This is why I think Dave Chappelle went to Africa. Once you realize folks are laughing for all the wrong reasons, it puts a damper on things.

Whites who hate everything about Hip-hop culture and whatnot are cheering on McGruder because he attacks it.   

I've said before Riley says N***er more than any Rap Video I've ever seen.

Don't get me wrong I love Boondocks, but the fact that the Rap-hating hordes of Newsrama (I'm not overstating this 'Blue, we've both seen the Rap threads over there) just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the show has got me wondering.

You absolutely correct Vic.

I begrudingly accepted the Boondocks' use of nigger and was openly offended by use of dark skin and big lips for all of the stupid and dumb black characters and light, bright and almost white for the 'respectable' negros.  Hell, the Freemans on the show are whiter than I imagined from the comic strip.  I was opened minded about the show but this sh*t is rediculous.

Aaron needs to go to Africa himself if he truly feels reinforcing these same old stereotypes is acceptable.  Wether, he believes, it doesn't matter because it is 'funny' and he is making a buck or, more insiduosly, he is being anti-pc and this rascist imagery is actually true, he is working against his main character's Huey Freeman's espoused goals of uplifting black people in America.

My feeling toward our images in the media is we don't need more negative images especially under the guise of 'I'm doing this for your own good'.

Most of us are not criminals or wanna-be criminals.  We may be living from paycheck to paycheck but we have our dignity.  There is more humor to be found in our humanity than a big black toothless oaf extolling the virtures of our subservience to white people.  To have white people acting a fool on the show as well doesn't really cut it.

Y'know, I can deal with Aaron being a pompous, high-handed, blacker-than-thou-art jackass, but not a hypocritical one. Where was the satire in this, exactly? Where was the intelligent humor? What, exactly, was the POINT of this episode? Hell, at least there were some laughs with the BET episode. This was just the cooningest coonery in the history of cooning.

I was opened minded about the show but this sh*t is rediculous.

The weird thing about this show is that it really isn't Huey's show anymore; it seems to be a lot more Rileycentric. Riley, naturally, is the more ignorant of the two. When I saw the very first show, I wrote that it was awful and I got totally creamed for it. I feel more vindicated than ever after seeing that stupid sh*t.

Jenn, I can only assume 'someone' told him Huey was too strident and you don't want to make a show that only black men wanted to see when they were black boys because no one wants to see that. ;)  Or maybe Aaron folded by himself and decided to go the low road of nigger jokes because showing true aspects of our culture, and making it have a heart, is just too hard.

Show business is a hard business and you really need your head on straight to not be pulled by the more nihilistic cultural tides. 

"Hence, Africa." to quote Dave Chappelle.  If anybody hasn't seen it, I heartily advise viewing 'Inside.The.Actors.Studio.Dave.Chappelle'  Dave expressses, as best he could, the forces of conformity in show business.

Get it Jenn if you havn't already seen it. I promise you won't be disappointed.

i was half asleep when i turned the tv on to see the end of this episode.
does anyone have the song that was playing in the credits? it made me laff.

and yes, i, too, have noticed that it has become RILEY-centric. Why?
We all know lil' Riley's... but has he received his comeuppance yet for being so ignorant?
not really?
the last whoopin'/beatdown he got was from his brother last season.

is he funny? yes.
Is he learning his lesson?
no.

Does Aaron like black people or doesn't he?  I understand WE do some stupid sh*t at times and act real ignorant, but doesn't every culture?

I usually laugh this show off because it can be true and amusing at the same time, plus it's just also funny to see cartoons doing this kind of stuff, but like someone mentioned Bamboozled -- and near the end and during the end credits there are those cartoons and jars and banks, etc. and when I watch that segment of the movie it nearly brings me to tears, I get so mad, but when I really think about it... this is nearly EXACTLY what Boondocks does, but yet I don't react that way.  Why is that?  Do I accept it [BD] because I know it's coming from the mind of a person like myself, someone of color, while I know most of the...memorabillia from the movie was more than likely from the twisted mind of someone not black?

What up Rock.

The thing is, nothing Grandpa or even Riley's Santa Claus hatin' ass, has done equals the black hating venom spewed forth by Ruckus or Stinkmeaner.   Robert Freeman is shown as a counter to Ruckus when he asks Ruckus how can he believe the things he says.  Tom is portrayed silly and sad at worst. 

Speaking of Tom, it was a scene with this character that brought this artistic point into sharp relief.  Where are Tom and the Freeman's lips?  Even white characters on the show are drawn with more lips then the main characters.  Tom, the innocuous dweeb, has uttured vile things, when under possesion of Stinkmeaner.  The only artistic reference they made to Stinkmeaner was giving Tom lips!  Not even Stinkmeaner's gapped teeth.  Watching the shift back and forth from "bad" big lipped Tom to "good" no lipped Tom was too much for me.

This wouldn't be so bad if there were positive dark skinned, big lipped prominent characters.  It would be normal.  But as is, the show is really disappointing.

Since I'm beating up on the BD, where are the black women?  The only women shown with respect is Tom's white wife.  I was sad when the Aisha Taylor character killed her crazy ass.
 

My favorite episode is "The Health Inspector".

Mr. Wright I totally feel where you are coming from.

Aaron appears ambivalent about his conception of black people in America.  Unfortunately, his personal issue is flowing out through the pop culture of TV in a way that reinforces stereotypical negative views of us.  Ironically similar to the rappers he derides; he is just keepin' it "real".

IMHO we simply need more black images that have an insight into our lives that is greater then self-hatred. :)

I'm reminded of an episode of "The Simpsons", where Homer is praying at the family table, and he's going on and how about how horrible his family is and how he's cursed. They interrupt him with "A-MEN!" and start eating. When Homer gets frustrated, Marge interrupts him with "how long are we supposed to sit here and listen to you badmouth us to the man upstairs?" That's how I feel about this new wave of 'tsk-tsk Negroes' culture, and McGruder's "Boondocks" is leading the parade. I think where McGruder goes wrong is where Cosby went wrong - his finger wagging seems to feel more like "this is what is wrong with y'all" instead of "this is what is wrong with us," a la Rock and Chappelle.

Did everyone feel this way about Martin, the PJ's, the Wayans Bros., and the Jamie Foxx shows too?

Funny - white people use this exact same excuse when they justify their love for racist humor. Kind of reeks of "why can't I say nigger?"

I'm just pointing out that what McGruder's doing is not new.  I'm just wondering where all the vitriol was when it was done in all of the other sitcoms.

Still waiting for that answer, too.
I gotta go with what Vic said -- when I watched those shows sure I saw buffoonery, stereotypes, and the like but it never evoked emotion to the caliber that BD does.  Don't get me wrong, I laugh at BD because some of it is true and truth IMO makes the best comedy but for some reason beyond explanation at times BD just shouts black hatred. 

And no, BD is not new, but one cannot honestly say that it is not different. 

I apologize, I'm having a tough time differentiating and articulating what it is that I really want to say.  I'm sure some on here can do a better job than I.

There's a difference between laughing with your people at yourself and there's sniggering in contempt.

Macgruder seems to be doing the latter more and more. Huey hasn't gotten much screen time this season. Maybe because he's not overty embarrassing. This despite the fact that his paranoia is really funny to me.

Like I said, if the Newsrama crowd are cheering you on, something has GOT to be wrong somewhere.

I thought my answer was obvious. No. If I wanted to answer questions that patronizing, I'd converse with white people.

We have a winner! But McGruder is ALWAYS going to come down on black people (all bitching, no answers) because white people will gladly pay him to do it. The problem, from what I can see, is that he's not really saying anything anymore. The last show I remember that had any satire whatsoever was the one about the Soul Plane sequel. Obviously, since I don't watch the show, I'm probably wrong - and in fairness, there is the BET show (which I really wish they'd go ahead and show; I'm getting so sick of McGruder's camp spinning this like Hudlin and company are so scared of him). But for the most part, it's "HAHAHA BLACK FOLKS SHO' ARE IGNINT!" from what I can see.

I agree, the show is far less balanced this year in its skewering of sacred cows.  But then, I'd sweat McG said that was planned as of the end of Season 1.

I don't necessarily agree that self-parody is always better. I think back to Martin, and Archie Bunker, and look at the secondary effects of those characters..  Alot of the message got lost in the medium, and they were quickly reduced to punchlines by the mainstream.

McGruder has always struck me as the kid in high school who sat in the back of the classroom doodling in his notebook, and everyone in class thought was harmless until they found out that he was distorting their likenesses with his caricatures.

At any rate, my point was, I guess, that BD isn't doing anything more to hurt black people that Law and Order hasn't done in its opening credits for twenty years...

But you're right.. hyperstylizing doesn't necessarily equal satire.  I like the kung-fu scenes, but the "messages" inherent in his work are just becoming so obtuse that it's almost insulting.  Some may call it layered, but a better word may be "unfocused".

But I still don't see this as any more damaging than what the middling 3 networks have been churning out for years, building up empires off of captive black demographics. 

Guess it's back to watching Penny Proud on Saturday mornings for me.

So I finally got sick enough and bored enough to blow the dust off my Boondocks DVD set (birthday gift from 2007, I think), and SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP, I want three hours of my life back. I made it all the way through to the Gangstalicious episode (I think that's ep #4) and then said "f*ck it, life's too short." I swear to Buddha and four fat dudes, if the name "Aaron McGruder" wasn't on this show, it would've tanked ages ago. I'm all for satire and even the occasional jab at black folks, but my God, does McGruder like ANYTHING that is remotely related to black people? It's so obvious that he wants to do anime, but he got stuck with this, and we're stuck with every other word being "nigga" - including white characters like Wuncler's kid and Gin Rummy (whose voices are so black sounding that their white skin makes them distracting). They have the best voice talent in the business (except for Regina King - sweetie, you can't be good at everything), but...UGH. Seriously, at one point it just became background noise. I'd look up and think "Damn, is this really a 30 minute show?" I'm sure this'll fetch a decent price on eBay or something.

I'm begging you guys...what the hell do you see in this crap-ass wannabe anime show?

It's not a crap-ass wannabe anime show woman. The first few episodes and really much of the first season is hit and miss as McGruder was trying to find the perfect balance between humor, satire and social commentary. If you can bear to stick with it; you will see McGruder finding his footing later on in the season. As for the Bush jr and Cheney characters, they get much better as the season went on.

Season 2 is where Mcgruder has the formula down pat. Every episode so far has had the perfect balance of commentary, humor and satire with the exception of Catcher Freeman which was pure escapism.

YOU LIIIIIIIE!!!! WHY MUST YOU TORTURE ME WITH LIES!?!?!?

I've made it as far as "Wingman", when I feel asleep. Riley with the spray paint, Grandpa and the old man, Tom and the anal rape thing (because rape is HILARIOUS, lemme tell you internet), and a bunch of other shows that I can't even complain about because I don't even remember them. And the little I've seen from season two shows me that McGruder was actually able to go downhill, which was an achievement all its own. As usual, I'm the odd man out. :( I want to like this show - I desperately do - but it's so awful that I just can't bear it. And that's saying something, seeing that I was able to watch "Homeboys in Outer Space" when I got bored enough.

And what is up with Aaron's hatred of women? Nearly all of them are fat, loud and ignorant. My God, get a girlfriend.

I was a fan of the comic strip and loved most of the first season but the second season has mostly been a big disappointment.  The first season had more of a balance between satirizing the behavior of some blacks and the system we must live in.  The second season has its sites aimed squarely at blacks and the tone seems more hateful.  I have been really turned off and am close to dropping the series.  This is no longer a show were blacks can laugh at themselves.  It is now becoming a show for those that look negatively towards the black community.

The Garden Party,The Trial Of R. Kelly, Guess Hoes Coming To Dinner, Let's Nab Oprah and Grandad's Fight are really funny to me.

I liked Wingmen, but can see how others wouldn't cause it features Grandad.

I find the characters funny (especally Grandad and Ruckus). I'm an anime geek.

I surprised you didn't like the Trial of R. Kelly, Jenn since it makes pointd that I figured
you'd agree with. I'd REALLY be intrested to hear your opinion of Return Of The King.

Look, its clear to me that the brother has issues with brothers in general. The only characters in Boondocks
who aren't fools are Huey (who's just paranoid) and Wuncler(who's evil). There's only been two really sisters in the show to date (one was a 'ho and the other was insane). I don't know what's up with that.

There were always hints of this in the strip. When Huey and Mike Ceasar would give out "The Most Embarrassing Negro Award."

McGruder left the strip around the time when the syndicate told him he wasn't using the other characters enough. He's learned that much. But the style of the early Boondocks, which was about the characters and not McGruder's world-view has mostly fallen by the wayside for the most part except for episodes like Wingmen, Ballin' and...Or Die Trying.

The show is funny when McGruder's not pointing fingers. Trouble is, that's mainly what he wants to do

That's when it was becoming "The Huey and Michael Show" and that's when I stopped reading it. I think you're right about McGruder abandoning his characters for one or two pushing his world view. What made the comic so great is that it was able to poke fun at everybody, INCLUDING Huey, who always had an air of paranoia to him. I also think the show suffers greatly from its excessive use of profanity. When Aaron didn't have that, he had to rely on his natural wit (and other characters) to be funny. Now he's abandoned that because he can say "nigga" in the name of satire. Oh, and another thing. What's up with Riley always cursing and disrespecting Granddad? That's a long way from Granddad being from a small town called "Whuppin Riley's Narrow Behind." I guess the thing is these kids are never KIDS - they don't go to school, they don't seem to have any friends, Huey is always toeing the line (as opposed to trying to get out of mowing the grass) and Riley is always disrespectful and getting into things that are actual gangsta sh*t, instead of just imagined, wannabe gangsta sh*t (from the comfort of his Woodlawn home). I can't deal with this 10-year-old who knows EVERYTHING and ALWAYS has a lecture.

I like how McGruder seems to think that Negroes were somehow better during the Civil Rights Era. But wait, he doesn't even really believe that given his take on the Civil Rights Era. Dude just seems to think we laughable in general.

Given this, it might be almost just as well that there are no other sisters in the 'toon besides Jasmine. But if there were, McGruder might get called out on his B.S. a lot quicker, I bet.

... And Huey hasn't been seen at school since the Christmas Pagent episode as far as I know (haven't seen much of the second season yet). I actually want Ceasar in the 'toon just so it could give Huey a buddy and something to do OTHER than being a smug little @#$%.  A lot of what made the newspaper strip funny was the "fish out of water" domestic comedy. So we know he can do that it. Since McGruder got large, it's like he feels that stuff is beneath him somehow.

He and George Lucas might be the best arguments AGAINST total creative control that I can think of.

I had family who was in the thick of the CRE, and if McGruder thinks that all mid-60s Negroes were so noble and proud and standing up for the people, I'd pay money to put his smarmy ass in a time machine and send him back 50 years. He would come back more disillusioned than he is now. I think it was someone here at HEF (Hudlin, maybe?) who said something about blacks act like we woke up in the crack era and have no idea how we GOT there.

Now that I've finished season one, I can say that it worth it just for two episodes: "The Block is Hot" (all-around brilliance) and "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus" (worth it for the last five minutes). I find Huey a lot more tolerable when Jazmine is around. I also think TB does an excellent job with music. I'm no fonder of the show than I was before I wasn't so familiar with it, and I can't see myself watching any of these eps again, but I feel like my opinion is a more educated one. Next time I get falling down sick, I may watch a season two marathon. Any recommendations?

and yes, i, too, have noticed that it has become RILEY-centric. Why?
We all know lil' Riley's... but has he received his comeuppance yet for being so ignorant?
not really?
the last whoopin'/beatdown he got was from his brother last season.

is he funny? yes.
Is he learning his lesson?
no.
Good point, and something that can get to me about the show. If anything, I liked the episode with Riley tagging everywhere, that ended with him doing a mural of Grandad and his wife, more than the episodes where he gets beat-downs. I felt he learnt more from that, and although some of the episodes have him being disillusioned with his gangsta icons, it's not the same. I prefer the focus being on Huey, and if the episodes will focus on Riley, they will need to show some degree of growth in the character. In fact, did the Ganstalicious 2 ep even have Huey's normal narration voice-over?

 Wow, tough crowd.  :D

 Respectfully, I think many of you might be missing the point of many of this season's Riley-centric episodes.  It's a critique of how far hip-hop has gone off the rails.  How it's not growing, and refuses to learn from its mistakes.  The glorification of thug life, materialism, misogyny, lack of substance...it's all here.  I'm thinking McGruder is a hip-hop fan, horrified at the current state of the art. So he blasts it, over and over again.  Too many shots?  Maybe, maybe not.  I can understand some of the criticism, though.  Mainstream hip-hop is an easy target.  So maybe the creators are taking the easy way out.
 
  Personally, I dig the show.  A lot.  It's one of my favorites.  Is it hit or miss?  Sure.  Show me a show, hell, any piece of entertainment, that's not.  N-bombs come a little too frequently, but again, the show is a critique of popular Black culture.  To not drop N-bombs could be considered disingenuous.   I don't like the way grandad's character has been reworked to fit Witherspoon's tired schtick.  That stuff, aside, it remains one of the best shows on TV...in my humble opinion...

You wana know what drives me crazy about the show--the use of the N-word.

I just stumbled upon the "n-word" episode (I guess that's every episode, but rather, the episode where Riley's teacher gets scolded for using it, Rollo Goodlove shows up, "Anne Coulter", etc.)..

anybody watch this with white folk?  If U R white, what'd you think of it?

I liked tuh have cracked myself up at that ep

That was a great episode! ;D 
The entire second season of The Boondocks was great but Mr. McGruder, you have to introduce that character from Brooklyn in your next set of episodes.

Well, Gangstalicious was a funny character but there were scenes with him in it where I  almost threw up! :P

The last interview I saw with McGruder, I got the impression that the execs had a serious "Talking to" with him about the BET episodes and that may have slowed the process. He stopped himself several times when the BET episodes came up and said there were legal issues and because of that he shouldn't comment.

There were at least 3 episodes that never aired and while I don't know how these things work; I don't think Cartoon Network would be too pleased about paying for material they couldn't air.


Writers block or the challenges posed by writing came up during the interview as well. When Chappelle was brought up,; McGruder said " Two people can't make a show" and how even with his staff THE BOONDOCKS took a lot of time to produce.

During that segment of the interview I got the impression that McGruder didn't know where to go with the Obama phenomenon at that point. He said that " All the information is out there" in terms of why he wasn't motivated about continuing the show.


I'm not an artist but I would think that the entireity of THE BOONDOCKS as a piece of social commmentary pushed toward this very moment in American history. The idea that NOW is the time to end the series strikes me as strange to say the least.

Reg, I don't know. I can see Aaron submitting scripts and ideas and them saying "you may need to tweek this one". Then the process begins a new. (To answer Reg's question)
On to the C-O-N-spiracy....
I don't think they will ever let him run wild (so to speak) like the Family guy dude, those South Park douches or hell any of the other show creators on their network.

Post by: bluezulu on May 04, 2010, 11:12:38 am
I don't think any body is behind anyone more or less for any thing connected with the Boondocks. Aaron lost a few points for personally attacking a friend for private reasons with low blow stuff and then he said some crazy stuff about Obama right after the election. You saw some of the reaction parodied in the episode when Riley made his meh comment. Aaron's public sense of humor is right on point with mine 90% of the time but when he is off, he is off. I don't laugh at black jesus jokes, going in on friends publicly or willie lynching Obama. Just me.

I liked the first episode but I think it's impossible for the gap between events not to have diminished its impact.

If the 3rd season premiered last year at this time I believe it would've been much more effective.

The Non HEF response is pretty positive from what I've seen for the premiere.

Honestly, I think it's a little of both. And while it's clear that we all love Boondocks; Reggie how do you feel about Boondocks omitting the 'banned episodes' aside? I'm curious as to how you see the show.

Post by: Vic Vega on May 06, 2010, 08:36:57 am
When McGruder was doing his daily comic strips he had frequent breaks. If anything McGruder’s production company is just habitually slow.

You can’t blame his anime fetish for this, either.

Shows like Samurai Champloo and Black Lagoon managed to come out weekly when they were on T.V.

Look at it this way: Dini and McDuffie are nearly putting out 90 min. movies faster than McGruder is producing 30 min. episodes at this point. ;D

Exactly! I'm sorry Reggie but it just doesn't look good that you're acting kindof of smug about them not being on the air for so long? I think many of us would like to know why the falling out/ugliness between you two. But hey, if you don't want to say. It's none of our business. What Afro said is true.

Tonight's episode made it 2 for 2.

The fall of a rapper is rarely pretty and the demise of Thugnificent was no exception. There were a lot of themes involved but the overall message of the here today, gone today aspect of the genre stuck out the most.

The Ice T vs Souljah Boy battle redux was good but Uncle Ruckus breaking out the Cristal for the Repossesion of Thugnificent's house took the prize for the moment of the week. 8)

It was a fun episode and one that is sorely needed in a series of this nature.

Despite all the social/political commentary and satire, the series is about a 10yr old revolutionary and his gangsta in training 8yr old brother. Things like a kickball game remind us that Huey is still just a kid.

There were a lot of messages.

1. America's indebtedness to China- We see it when Wuntzler has to mortgage everything on the game just to stay afloat.

2.China's obsession with excellence- Even in kickball they were driven in every way.

3. American laziness- This may be a bit of a stretch. I think the fact that all of Team America wanting to win but didn't train speaks toward a present day mentality of entitlement. They should win because they're American, not because they are the best players.

Know what, I just remember something:

When I was listening to the DVD's audio commentary to Boondock season 2.

Aaron was dissing LeSean Thomas saying "Lesean didn't do this or that, he was lying, etc."

Also Lesean is not on season 2, just season 1 audio commentary.

Hmmmmmmmmm, I might just have to take Hudlin side. 

Shoot, whatever happen to Jennifer Seng (she used to draw the comic strip after Aaron) as well ???

This is the type of material that shows what THE BOONDOCKS can do. The episode was able to combine a 70's tribute to: Red Foxx, Lawanda Page, Jimmie Walker, Jim Kelly and Shaw Bros. This would've been entertaining enough but it was bolstered by critiquing the hood rationale for wanton violence.

If McGruder is looking for a second act I think a BLACK DYNAMITE series with Michael Jai White would be perfect.

Aaron why did you kill such a excellent character.......come on kill one of those white folks......

The death of Bushido Brown was the essence of the nigga equation.

The Hateocracy wanted to kill the Freeman's and had the opportunity to but their violence ended up taking the life of Bushido Brown.

Redd Foxx's summation at the end put it perfectly. The whole avenging Stinkmeaner angle was garbage, they liked being violent and looked for any excuse to engage in that behavior.

Whoa man, isn't this like the FOURTH episode of the season? Can we wait until 9 more episodes have past before making that call?

But I do agree with this episode being pretty good. However, I have to hate on onnnneee litttle thing .... While I do like the Kung-Fu action ... I don't know, it's getting kindof old. How's about some boxing or another gun fight?

Aaron I know you like karate/anime but come on man. Some outside the box thinking here.

Post by: jefferson L.O.B. sergeant on June 20, 2010, 09:18:33 pm
Tonight's episode shows why THE BOONDOCKS became a phenomenon.

Along the way it seems that Mcgruder wasn't leaving himself too many outs if he decided that this wasn't truly the final season. By picking the topic of religion, specifically Christianity, and how it is misapplied in popular Black culture through Tyler Perry was brilliant.

The hallmark of the best BOONDOCKS episodes was that it caused controversy that would last well past the season was over.

This episode is no different.

There are so many issues explored here: selling one's soul for fame, Christian hypocrisy, dumbing down of art and even more the perversion of scripture. The fact that a "Devout" Christian's claim to fame is his cross-dressing as a: Drunken, loud, violent, senior citizen is an indictment of the "Evangelicals" that support it.

Even more, the Ice Cube running joke is significant in that Oprah, Tyler's mentor and partner, won't allow Cube to get past his gangta persona of his youth. Meanwhile, Perry is putting out family movies with similar themes to Cube's ( Which again are anti-Biblical teachings) and he gets a pat on the back and a seat on the couch.

There is so much here to dwell on but really the aftermath/backlash will be the most interesting of all. This isn't Reggie and BET here, McGruder is going against New Age Christianity( HERESY) and arguably the most powerful man in Black entertainment.

Let the games begin!

I never liked Tyler Perry, but I felt sorry for him after watching this episode. He needs to have his goon squad hunt Aaron McGruder down and kick his @ss. lol @ Grand Pa's, "Where's the Alicia Keyeses, where's the Beyonces...where's Wonder Woman? All I see is Florida Evanses! I can get a big b!tch on my OWN!".

We need someone like A.G. that has the stones to expose the hypocrisy and contradictions in our culture. I'm looking forward to his next project, but I'll miss the Boondocks like a mug.

Maybe so but he is calling out on the hypocrisy of Tyler. The product he presents is dayum near gutter trash. Nothing about them are unique or anything. Same old tired stories of the "black Christian and their problems". Madea Goes to Jail was dayum near a sermon. If I want to hear that then I can go back to church. I'll give him credit for creating a Madeaverse with a strong continuity but that is it.

The episode is a classic but more to the point I think Mcgruder is going all out to ensure that he can't backtrack on this being the last season.

Now only ONE Black entertainer has gone at Oprah all out and that was Paul Mooney. If you haven't seen the legendary "F OPRAH" routine go to Youtube now!

A really funny episode with a great take on promiscuity and the effect of fatherless homes.

The exchange of the night has to be

Grandad- It's a DNA test

Riley- Well study next time! 

McGruder is really going all out. Tyler Perry 2 weeks ago and now a shot at the King of Pop. That DVD money is going STRAIGHT to security.

It seems Tyler Perry was just a little upset about McGruder's PAUSE episode! 8)

Perry wanted the episode cancelled completely but the best he could get was having the episode buried in the middle of the season. I can only imagine the heat that would've occured if the destruction of Tyler Perry was the season opener.

Perry seems to have instituted a scorched earth policy because of the show.

I really wonder what McGruder has in store for the rest of the season.

You can't touch Perry without some repurcussions; so the post BOONDOCKS era ( If this is really the end) will be very interesting.

I will have to check if TBS and Cartoon Network are part of the same company. Another part of the allegations is that Perry is looking to move his franchises from the network because of this.

Another great episode!

There were a lot of subjects involved in the episode but it didn't take away from the comedy. The failure of Black men to take healthcare seriously was brilliantly made when Grandad hadn't seen a physician in 56 years! The mentality that it's better to be ignorant of a disease rather than have it diagnosed, is a reality that is killing thousands of us needlessly.

The indictment of the pharmaceutical companies with their incessant advertizing and literal poisoning of the American public was also great. The scene where the side-effects of the viagra variant where recited while he was worried about marijuana spoke volumes.

The exhalting of marijuana as a cure-all wasn't lost in the episode as well. As much as McGruder displayed the hypocrisy about Marijuana's illegality in comparison to alcohol, he also pointed out that Physicians are professionals whose advice should be heeded.

I didn't stop laughing from beginning to end and this is the type of episode that shows how versatile THE BOONDOCKS is.

There are so many memorable lines from this episode that I can't choose one.

This week's episode is being billed as a "Season" finale and not the series finale. I hope this means there will be a 4th season.

ROFLMAO EPISODE!! But it was deep tho. Ruckus's mom & his brother worship white supremacy while the father despite it and hated it.........and had to come home to watch his own family praised it. I wish they would had got into why the grandma didn't liked her own son and grandchildren.

What makes it even funnier that all of this "revitoligo" talk is actually true. Also if they want to end the series on a high note they can. Sony is already on some bullsh*t "revamping" spiderman. We don't need them to "revamp" The Boondocks. It was kind of sad on what happened with his childhood and the same goes for his father.

If It's Going Down was the last episode of THE BOONDOCKS it was a brillaint send-off.

I saw an interview with McGruder about whether he would continue making THE BOONDOCKS and I think his answer was made explicit in this episode. Huey is the character that represents McGruder the most and when he told Jack " Not to waste his life trying to stop the future" I think McGruder was talking about himself.

The intent of The BOONDOCKS was to educate, critique, and satirize to the point that people became aware of the social/political reality they live in. In the interview, McGruder stated that everything he presented in The BOONDOCKS is out there now and the information is readily available. He made it seem that his inspiration to continue the show was gone.
