  • Great Episode but??

    9.5
    fter Hurricane Katrina, a few of the Freeman's distant relatives come up for a visit from New Orleans, which they were forced to leave after the natural disaster. There's only one problem, they don't want to leave. At first even Huey feels sorry for them, because they have no where else to go, but as time rolls on, the Freemans start to realize that none of their relaitves are doing anything to make their situation better, just living off them and Granddad's fixed income with the kids. And so the situation changes from the Freemans taking care of their relatives to kicking the lazy out, women and children excluded. at the end Robert's cousin lies about the $100,000 check (Which i believe Robert wrote). Overall, this episode was fun to watch. It has it's few high points and funny ones as well. I like how it went into the serious issue of Katrina and that it's overlying message was to help those in need, but to stop when the needy became dependable on the helpful, and must learn to take care of themseleves after awhile (which sadly was not the case with Huey's relatves). I laughed through this episode, though I think it could have been funniermoreless

  • The Roughest Episode Thus Far.

    3.0
    We all know MacGruder's Boondocks tends to reflect and explore social arguments and views, an intent seldom more obvious than here. Not a single clean laugh to be found, with a lot of rough almost-humor and outright unfunniness just to tell the story, possibly to make a statement about Katrina survivors. (If so, that would be a protracted one about how some Katrina-affected blacks are complacent leeches). If it was meant to be satirical it completely missed the mark, even as dark satire. The material closest to funny, hence watchable, comes from Ruckus, who is reliable like that but gets fewer than two minutes of screentime here. Season 2 eps tend to be either comedic or commentative, not quite marrying those approaches as Season 1's episodes did. This is easily one of the weakest eps of the series, and makes me wonder how much more of this McGruder can put up before fans eventually tune out.moreless

  • The Boondocks is based on the satiric Aaron McGruder comic strip of the same name.

    This has to one of the best episodes yet of "The Boondocks". It was hilariously creative and well written. But, there was one thing I thought was confusing. That scene when Huey puts Riley in the closet he has that orange jumpsuit on. When Riley breaks out the closet and confronts Huey with his guns, you notice he doesn't have the jumpsuit on anymore, just a tank top and jeans. But, when Riley and Huey's shoot out is over, and when Grandad comes back from his trip, he opens the door and sees Riley and Huey on the floor. But! If you notice closley, Riley has the jumpsuit back on for some unknown reason. Kind of weird, but reguardless of that issue, the episode was awesome and "The Boondocks" continue on being a "100% gold".moreless
