I wasn't a real big fan, had watched maybe one full episode and bits & snippets of a few others...but my Birthday was coming up and my friend was having a hard time thinking of a gift for me:

Friend: "Whadda want?"

TML: "I dunno."

Friend: "No, seriously, what do you want?"

TML: "I have no idea."

Friend: "I'm not getting you a gift certificate!!  Tell me what you want!!"

TML: *remembers watching the R. Kelly episode of the Boondocks the other night*  "Okay...how about season 1 of the Boondocks?"

And I watched the first disc tonight and wow, couldn't stop watching it.  All 5 episodes were great!!  I thought they were going to keep the censor-box when Grandpa was doing his tae-bo...boy was I wrong.   :lol:

The artwork is beautiful, and definitely unique to this sort of cartoon.  I really enjoy the dynamic between the two brothers, Riley and Huey.  There were MANY laugh-out-loud moments in the episodes I watched tonight, and I rarely laugh at television shows.  Samuel L. Jackson voicing a white guy really turned that episode into a classic.  They throw a part from Pulp Fiction in there which was really, really funny.

If you're looking for a smart, well-written and thought-provoking show, Netflix The Boondocks.

I'm pretty sure Soulchilde agrees with me (what with the Riley Freeman avatar and all), but are there any other fans of the series?

I've seen bits and pieces of a couple of episodes and LOL'd.  I definitely did a doubletake when I heard Samuel Jacksons voice coming out of a white guy.  I'll probably end up buying season 1 after I get my current backlog down to manageable proportions.

I love the strip but have never seen the show.  Is the show exactly like the strip?

Or is it dirty with swearing and naughty bits and stuff?

I was a bit grossed out when that older father dude was working out and his wee-wee was showing.  I don't want to see THAT!

Is that the cartoon where one of the black guys went around preaching "Praise white jesus!"
I was up late at night and happened to spin by it and can't remember the name of the cartoon, but I think it was the boondocks.

The Return of the King episode was the best moment in all of cable last year.  Whoever did MLK's voice for the climactic speech should at least get an emmy or something.  The lilt (half shout/half preach) was perfect. I almost will have to pick the DVD up.

Oh, and his episode about the REAL Thugalicious is one of the funniest, gruesomest deconstructions of the 'gangsta' prototype.  I love Riley's total horror when he sees the proof that Thugalicious is gay. :lol:
