I really hate the comic strip -- this looks marginally more bearable.

Pure brilliance. Those who don't give 5 stars probably just raved about seeing the Bratz movie for the fifth time.

I...don't remember hearts getting ripped out in the comic strip. Huh. And was that Ghostface toward the end?

I hate the anime style and this show isn't funny but some pretty nice violence. Looks like the animation has improved a little since the last time I saw this.
Also what's with the weird elevator music that plays all through this clip?
it's theme music used in the ending credits of the show, and once in a while during the show.
That's the thing about this show; it's not at all funny, but the fight scenes are amazingly choreographed and animated. The guys behind this need to stop fucking around with comedy and just do a straight action cartoon.

Good show, and pretty funny sometimes.

The comic lost it after the first couple of years, but the show? Awww snap, nigga, that shit is TIGHT! If Season Two is anything like Season One was, I think McGruder may well have redeemed himself for those endless months of the rehashing the same "BUSH SUX" joke over and over and over again.
|Xenocide - 2007-08-04 |
The McGruder made the right choice when he ended the comic to concentrate on the show. The show is not only vastly superior, toward the end of the first season it became one of the best things on TV. The lemonade stand episode is just brilliant, and season two looks like it'll be just as good. I'm excited.
Also, why is it the small, dinky theater that only has two screens and is constantly on the verge of bankruptcy will put my butter on for me, but the giant one with 20 screens and a trillion more dollars operating capital won't? Granddad's on to something.

When, dammit, when? Oh, god, when????
|Aelric - 2007-08-04 |
you know, i always found this to be only mildly funny, but i loved it anyway, for other reasons. sure, it's billed as a comedy, but it's quite a bit more than that. it's social commentary through absurdism and the animation is quite unique, despite it's anime roots.
on another note, fuck, two years to get a second season. jesus, it was WAY too long. better be a fully loaded 24 episode season, damn it. if they pull a BBC and only make 6-13 episodes, i'll be pissed. happy but pissed.

Hey, all you asswipes who're rating this on the basis of the comic strip: sit down and shut up.
Sort of like all of those asswipes who keep rating anime on the basis of some hentai they don't like. Doesn't feel good to be on the receiving end, does it?
I'll rate it on preachy suckery, then.
Do I detect a note of bitterness, Cam? Boondocks is almost anime; so what gives?
Actually, it's nothing like anime besides the faux art style. If you gave the characters on Family Guy giant eyes it wouldn't be "almost anime".
Well sure, there's no panty shots of magical underaged schoolgirls and giant robots killing the fuck out of each other, but the faux art style is close enough. Last I checked, the only things needed for a show to be considered "anime" were 1- the big eyed art style and 2- the show to have been made in Japan or some equally chinky country. "Grave of the Fireflies" and "YuGiOh" are both "anime", yet they have literally nothing in common save for the art style (and even then it's a stretch). So is the problem merely that the Boondocks was made in the US, by black people, instead of in Japan, by indentured Korean animators? Or is there some kind of super-secret True Anime certification process I'm not aware of?

I'll give it 5 stars when the show puts a disclaimer up that says its okay for me to use "nigga" in real life.
Just say it. no one's stopping you. In all honesty, nigga is probably going to lose all of its baggage in a few years the way its tossed around. White kids call each other that all the time. Now, nigg-er, on the other hand...

Just when I thought it hit rock bottom, there came a Chappelle Show reference. Oh dear. Hurr where's Rick James? The flagship of Adult Swim, one of the worst things to happen to television in a decade.
|Atomic Powered Jack-O-Lantern - 2007-08-04 |
God this show sucks. It's physically painful to watch.
|bizzaro - 2007-08-04 |
5 stars for that rich negro ghost ridin' his wh-hip
|Pandatronic - 2007-08-04 |
Let me say that I loved the comic strip. It wasn't really funny, mind, and the faux-anime visuals panned out pretty quickly, but I enjoyed watching Aaron MacGruder's steady descent into madness through his newspaper comic's transformation from "wacky kid hi-jinx" to "illustrated Livejournal of a cartoonist raging against the machine".
The TV show was entertaining, but it tried too damn hard. It had its good spots but overall I wish such good TV animation was being used on a show that was more deserving of it.
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2007-08-05 |
5 stars for the Iraq/baboon comment alone.
|Endoris - 2007-08-05 |
There is, indeed, powerful Niggerdry going on here.
|Pie Boy - 2007-09-19 |
Want. Cannot wait. Need.
|Harold Manchester - 2007-09-22 |
I'd rather have a cactus shoved up my asshole than ever see this show again.
