  • great episode

    This episode had me cracking up for beginning to end. Seems like whenever Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummi are on, you're guaranteed a "stitch on your side" after all the laughter. Between the 2 of them, Rummi is the funniest.It's amazing how much Huey would go through to not only keep Riley away from those 2, but to keep his brother's gangsta backside out of trouble. I liked the fight scene between those 2 a lot better than the one with Bushido Brown (it was really good, on the other hand, Huey and Riley used everything that wasn't nailed down).Despite the ending wasn't as good as I wish it was, "Let's Nab Oprah" still deserves a 10/10.Favorite scene: Huey and Riley fight sceneFavorite quote (I got a lot from this episode): "You want beef? I got your beef." - When we first meet Bushido Brownmoreless
  • this is actually my favorite.

    hands down it is "Exactly why I watch the series". The duo of Ed & Gin just made it a lot more funnier. I also do think that they are realle gay for each other. I just wanna ask "why are there two book stores across from each other, what's the point in that?"
  • Goddamn this one was hilarious

    I like the part with the three white ladies and the Thats really F##### up Agnes. I wonder why Agnes is only and old person name nowadays? I still dont know how those stupid guys could mistake MAya Angelou for Oprah but i loved how the just thjrew her out like trash as if a great african american writer is not nearly as important as a great african american tv hoste ess. ALso I like the suprise visit and Kidnapping of Blill Cosby, And then they just put him back because he was just so damn annoying ... And Yall (black people) is GAy i love that linemoreless
  • More Kung fu Madness in this episode

    Now I have no Idea how Riley and Huey know Kung-fu, what they downloaded Martial Arts Info to their brain overnight like the Matrix? Still even though its almost Unrealistic I still love the action. Also the Heist Introduction element was pretty cool, I love Hiests. This have Guns, Fighting and Opera, which is why I love this episode
  • Gin, Ed the 3rd, and Riley are bored of doing stupid crimes, so they plan to kidnap oprah.

    Lets nab Oprah was my all time favorite boondocks episode all becuse of Ed Wuncler III and Gin. They are my favorite characters because of their badas* attitude and they're army like attitude, they're freakin hilarous! Ed and Gin were the main characters of lets nab oprah. In this episode Riley decides to hang out with ed and gin to help them do some crime, but they are disappointed because nobody takes them serously, so they decide to kidnap oprah to get some attention and to rule all women then the world. i thought that was absoulutely hilarious because gin and ed are complete idiots and they couldnt plan a simple kidnapping.moreless

  • NOTES (1)


    • Enter The Dragon:

      When Bushido Brown said, "Boy, you come straight out of a comic strip", this was both an allusion to two facts:

      1. The Boondocks was originally a comic strip.

      2. The character Williams from Enter The Dragon, who was an obvious inspiration for Bushido Brown, who told the villian Han, "Man, you come right out of a comic book."
