The Boondocks: Season 1 Reviews

July 5, 2018
"The Boondocks" took a lot of big swings worth admiring, and in the realm of animation represented a very, very underheard point-of-view.

McGruder has brilliantly set his tone, and there's no looking back.

There are very few series for young adults that deal with race as brazenly and defiantly as "The Boondocks."

I don't think there is enough Botox in the world to keep me watching and wincing and still keeping it together. I'll tune out.

"The Boondocks" shows promise, defies categorization and, basically, could either evolve into a great show or become repetitive really fast.

There's a clunkiness to the pacing of this new Boondocks incarnation.
November 6, 2005
The first episode of the new series, is the television equivalent of a slap upside the head.

It turns out you can be controversial without being the least bit interesting.

"The Boondocks" is filled with crassness and non sequiturs but proves too self-consciously biting to get under anyone's skin -- regardless of its color -- beyond the least-demanding realm of the young-male demo.
November 6, 2005
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.

Right out of the gate, "The Boondocks" is a water-cooler series that lives up to the hype.
