    If you love a big, seriously politically incorrect, brilliantly funny show that delivers belly laughs of the "South Park" quantity, then this one's for you.
  2. As hilariously scalding onscreen as it is on the daily comics pages.

    Animation has rarely felt so explosively, hilariously defiant.

    Like the frequently audacious comic strip that gave it life, "The Boondocks" doesn't mess around.
  5. "The Boondocks," with all its knowingly controversial observations and language, is a sort of animated equivalent of "All in the Family." It'll make you think, and maybe even wince - but at the same time, it makes you smile.
  6. 60
    Deliberate pacing muffles the comedy's energy. Stylish animation clashes with coarse language and situations. Would arty photography help a Mel Brooks movie? Not one with a wobbly script.
  7. 30
    There is not a single fresh moment in the three episodes that have run so far; it turns out you can be controversial without being the least bit interesting.

    Excellent satire that people either get, or they don't. The people who don't get it are usually the ones being made fun of.

    Excellent show, perhaps the only one to have ever translated a comic strip properly (maybe making it better in the process by delivering Excellent show, perhaps the only one to have ever translated a comic strip properly (maybe making it better in the process by delivering several strips worth of comics at once). As daring at South Park was originally with the same mass appeal (at least in my family) as the Simpsons. And honestly, comparing it to either of those shows does it a disservice, as it outshines them both in some ways. Expand

As a child of the civil rights era I let people spit in my face so I would never hear that word again. People were sprayed with hoses, beaten,sent to jail for the same purpose. So now that kids are benefiting from so many older Black's suffering they think the word has no meaning. They are soooooooooo wrong. Expand
