Critic Reviews for The Boondocks Season 4

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

This season has had very little as far as actual social commentary, real satire, or any of the insights you'd normally expect from this show.

Sep 9, 2019 | Rating: F | Full Review…

The Boondocks is wrapping up its run by being more like Al Pacino as Al Pacino in Jack and Jill: a sad-looking shell of itself that sometimes recaptures its past spark but has seen better days.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a zombie show, like the Dan Harmon-less fourth season of Community. Something's off. You can't figure out exactly what, but you can feel it.

Apr 24, 2014 | Full Review…

The new season is a copy of McGruder's baby made from a printer that needs a fresh ink cartridge. The clear, hard lines of McGruder's vision and sensibility aren't the only things that are a little faded.

Apr 21, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The thrill is gone.

As ever on The Boondocks, the sparks will fly.

Apr 18, 2014 | Full Review…

From its gorgeous backgrounds and the jazz-like quality of its stories to its consistently on-point writing, this is one of those shows you'll throw on in the background one minute only to start obsessively watching the next.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

But Season 4's shaky landing was not disappointing enough to undo the show's legacy-which, by the way, includes a Peabody award for one particularly controversial episode.

Audience Reviews for The Boondocks: Season 4

  • Sep 07, 2020
    One of the worst animated seasons of television I have ever seen. Not a single good or re watchable episode. A few meh episodes and a handful of utter garbage the worst of which being the episode "Granddad dates a Kardashian" which I utterly despised in every way. The episode has one single saving grace in one of its distasteful butt jokes but even that isn't an achievement. This season was an insult to the series creator Aaron Mcgruder who was not involved with this season from his own show and creative property. It is very easy to tell something is off as it tries to capture the magic of the first three seasons which aren't perfect but had some classic episodes I find myself re watching from time to time. Do not watch this season it is a giant waste of time. It is like a brownie your mother put vegetables in to trick you into eating healthier. Its a pretender and a fraud and should burn forever forgotten.

    Again the same funny stupid and allows you to laugh over nothing..
  • Nov 07, 2019 sucks at giving ratings and for some reason all african film movies or series are usually low ranked even though they were amazing even award winners with a all star cast to complete it. So eat ass cause your booty stank like your review's.

    While the fourth and final season of "The Boondocks" is painfully average, the show is still definitely worth checking out because the rest of it is hilarious. I think some of the razor-sharp satire presented in this show is even relevant today. I don't think the show is for everyone and certain scenes and episodes will feel like they're going overboard, but I had too much fun watching it to think too much on this. It's a smart comedy that had me laughing consistently most of the way through. Fans of edgy comedy and sly satire cannot pass up watching this great animated series.

    The Boondocks Season 4 is pretty disappointing being let down by lazy writing and there's hardly any effort put into creative plot or character development. While it's enjoyable to watch Granddad getting hammered with a debt bill for taking out loans worth MILLIONS of dollars because of interest rate abuse it gets quite tedious after a while.

    We're going to freedom - then we got to turn this bus around!
  • Jun 09, 2015
    If you loved seasons 1-3 then you will certainly hate season 4. Totally different directors, producers, animators and writer. It is a complete insult.
  • May 24, 2015
    I thought I was the only one who saw a drop off this season, lordy. I was so disappointed this season to be honest with you. I love the earlier seasons they were significantly funnier in my opinion
  • Mar 17, 2015
    The previous 3 seasons had a lot more wit and humor than this one.
  • Dec 06, 2014
    Aaron McGruder has left the Boondocks in good hands, don't read into the negativity, if you enjoyed the first 3 series, kick back and enjoy the 4th, it's well worth it.
