It aired a long time ago. The show was supposed to have ended but they brought it back.

Re: The Boondocks...opinions

So the future of TV is just putting shows out at random times with the assumption that people with DVRs programmed to do so simply will catch them?

Re: The Boondocks...opinions

I recently got hooked into watching this by a friend of mine... and I seriously can't get enough. I love the sharp humor, but the one man who ties it all together for me is Uncle Rukus. I was shown the reality tv show episode that went unaired, and it had me rolling on the floor. This guy just doesn't let up - at all. I've begun DVR'ing every episode I can.

Personally, the Martin Luther King Jr. episode stands up as some of the finest political commentary I've ever heard. If they ever made a live action movie I'd hope it would be based off of this episode.

That or the "Praise be White Jesus!" episode.

Forgot they had a unaired episode. Going have to check that out. Oh crap I'm not sure I'm caught up on the latest episodes. Was the last episode with the government trying to catch Huey and it had a Jack Bower guy in it?

Re: The Boondocks...opinions

Just FYI, this show aired a season 4! I had no idea. I'm going through the season now, and the Chris Brown mocking was good.

Yeah, but without the original writer/creator. Thats why there was a shift to a slightly different style & tone of the show. Less political satire, more of a "Grandpa get in trouble" of-the-week episode.

I've heard nothing but hate for the new season. People are not happy.

Re: The Boondocks...opinions

I had no idea about the change in writer. That seems pretty despicable on the part of Cartoon Network. I had noticed a lack of Huey in the show so far.

Re: "The Boondocks" on Cartoon Network

Love for The Boondocks is still very much alive. So, Sony is bringing the Freeman family back to television.

“A complete re-imagining” of The Boondocks “for the modern era” is in development from original series creator Aaron McGruder, the studio announced Wednesday morning at the 2019 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.

Based on his comic strip of the same name, McGruder’s The Boondocks premiered in November 2005 on Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block Adult Swim. The comic launched in 1996. The reboot, a satire for the modern era, is said to chronicle the adventures of the Freeman family against the evil local government tyrant Uncle Ruckus, who rules the fictional Woodcrest County, Maryland with an iron fist.

In a March appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, comedian John Witherspoon, who voiced Granddad on The Boondocks, teased his involvement. “I’m on the cartoon. What is it? The Boondocks? I didn’t change my voice for The Boondocks. And they coming back,” he said. “The Boondocks is coming back. It’s one of the best cartoons I’ve ever been on.”

In February, McGruder resurrected his Boondocks comic strip to poke fun at the state of America in 2019. As shown in a series of Instagram posts shared by radio host Charlamagne Tha God, it featured characters Huey, Riley, Granddad, and Uncle Ruckus, as well as satirical takes on President Donald Trump and the Robert Mueller investigation.
