I tip my hat to Afronerd, which is where I first saw the 3-minute, uncensored trailer for the new season of “The Boondocks.” (Fresh episodes are due on the Cartoon Network starting October 8.)
Here’s the thing about “The Boondocks.” The comic strip was so funny and audacious, I was ready to put Aaron McGruder on the list of all-time-great black American satirists (with the likes of Darius James, Pedro Bell and Paul Mooney).
But the TV show, for some reason, I never got into. Maybe I need to get the Season 1 DVDs and take it all in. But... I don’t know. I even saw the notorious Martin Luther King episode, and it didn’t hit me as audaciously funny. It was just kinda flatfooted and shrill.
(But the animation is top-notch, I must say.)
Any “Boondocks” fans out there wanna tell me what I’m missing?
