    Aaron McGruder's anger comes through loud and clear in this adaptation of his comicstrip into an Adult Swim animated series, but the dearth of humor reflects another awkward and disappointing transition from three-panel glory to TV series.

    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.

People either have no clue that this Show is satirical or have no understanding of the word whatsoever. People complain about the heavy use of the word **** but fail to realize that some black people repeatedly use the word **** It tackles many issues and many stereotypes in society today. The Boondocks did not create stereotypes; stereotypes have been through Black Culture for many years. Aaron McGruder is merely putting those stereotypes onto his Comic strip, now onto to his TV Show.
