It lacked the character and the spirit of previous seasons; but was still a great watch. I believe a lot of viewers prepared themselves not to like this season because Aaron McGruder left and I think the show is being judged harshly for it. The social points made on the show were there and a lot more heavy handed than before, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. I would say the entire focus on Grand Dad may have turned a few off, but at the core it was still an entertaining season. Expand

    This season started so poorly I was almost ashamed to have rooted for the show to continue (and against the Uncle Ruckus movie).
    The first three episodes are just empty, no rythm, no wit and no goddamn story to hold together the few remaining pieces that made the show great. The Breaking Bad rip-off is just okay but it when the show is drowning, a breath of fresh air feel like an accomplishment.
    And so I was really surprised when the 5th episode came on the air, this is the boondocks I came to love and I hope the disappointment ends now.
    Aaron McGruder was the soul of the show, hope he let some of his magic around when he left.

I don't care much that they brung back story telling for one of the earlier seasons where robert would tell a story from the past and the subject being about slavery. The last episode where robert bought an iphone disappointed me deeply and i'm more than sure it brang great shame from many others more then just myself.

    I'm not sure what kind of score I should give here. Boondocks was a really great anime show back in the day but lately has crumbled. The devs are stuck on robert being broke in every episode and bringing back things such as story telling from roberts past from earlier seasons just makes me want to vomit. 4/10 and that is at best since I was not impressed with the few lats episodes to now on this season.

It also seems like the n word is being used a lot more superfluously and it comes off as awkward to say the least. I attribute this to the creator no longer being involved with the show. Expand

After forcing myself toThe loss Aaron McGruder is definitely felt the show seemed to have lost its depth and intelligent perspectives. After forcing myself to stomach half the season I couldn't watch anymore because there was nothing there to really watch as everything I like about the show was replaced with random action and pointless scenes.
