THE BOONDOCKS CAME BACK!
After much speculation that the Boondocks were coming back, I was extremely excited when there was an actual release date confirmed. Unfortunately, I do not have Amercian Cartoon Network, so I had to stream the episode. As excited as I was for the release of the new season, I was also hesitant because a large part of the show was no longer going to be involved; the creator Aaron McGruder was no longer involved in the last season of the Boondocks. Although he was no longer a part of the project, I figured I would still give the new season a chance. I watched the first episode today and as I was watching it, you could tell that McGruder’s voice was no longer being captured at least in this episode. BUT! We still have a whole season to go.
The season premiere was about an R&B singer that goes by the name Pretty Boy Flizzy, which happens to be a loose interpretation of Chris “BREEZY” Brown. I thought they could have done so much more with the character. What I always liked about McGruder’s voice was that he was never one to hold back when it came to societal and cultural commentary. In this episode, I felt as though they briefly touched on it. Like I said, there is still a whole season ahead and we will see what happens. If you watched the season premiere, what were your thoughts? I would love to hear them!
