For those who don't know, Aaron Mcgruder was not apart of this season of The Boondocks and it most definitely showed. Most of this season literally revolves solely on Grandad, and the first episode kicks in with Tom, then Uncle Ruckus. Huey and Riley seem almost only as extras. There's some humor that will have you giggle for only good once-over episodes, but no material that you would want as a DVD set to re-watch again. Save your money and watch the episodes on AdultSwim or torrents.

** Also most of our beloved characters are no longer present: Ed Wuncler III, Gin Rummy, A Pimp Named Slickback, Gangstalicious, Thugnificent and his whole crew.

The final episode just aired and they're already posting the fourth season for sale. If you enjoyed it I guess that'd be a great thing, something I wish more TV shows would do. However, it seems like the network took notice of its commercial failure compared to the previous seasons and wants to sell their stock as quickly as possible. If you're a Boondocks fan more than likely you've watched the fourth season. If you haven't then I recommend skipping it. Yes the first three seasons were all incredible and memorable, but the fourth leaves a sour taste.

When I learned series creator Aaron McGruder would not be apart of the fourth season I was hoping it wouldn't show. Sadly that is not the case. After such a long hiatus you'd think they'd bring back some of the most memorable characters, yet the entire season seemed to focus solely on Grandad and a Uncle Ruckus. Leaving the true stars, Huey and Riley to appear as background characters. It's unfortunate to see a cartoon, amongst the best to come out in the last decade, hit such a rough patch that I'm not sure it will recover from.

If you have yet to see the Boondocks at all, I recommend watching the first three seasons and leaving it at that. The fourth was signifigantly less enjoyable than the first three. Though you'll get a few laughs here and there, ultimately its forgettable and you'd be better off leaving your memory of The Boondocks at the end of the third season.

Not since the fifth season of the Simpsons has such a travesty been foisted upon the public. Thankfully, no one whom I respect was fooled.

From the first few minutes of "Pretty Boy Flizzy" onward, it appears that the characters have been co-opted by the forces for corporatist, feel-good, racial and socioeconomic stratification. Uncle Ruckus and Robert Freeman are handed most of the screen time, Riley is reduced to a sitcom character, and Huey appears to have been replaced by a smooth-talking sound-alike stunt-double with half the morals & absolutely _none_ of the real version's sense of honour. In other words, what we have here is a sort of 'Boondocks Lite', streamlined to remind audience members of what they need to think, and drained of subversiveness accordingly. But without the anarchism (may one kindly remind the producer and network that Huey is supposed to be a domestic terrorist?), there really is no Boondocks.

I read from creator Aaron McGruder's statement that there was no way he was going to be associated with the network's latest output involving the offspring of his imagination. I read from the network's press release that they have absolutely no clue as to what actually made the show work. I even have found attempts by certain associates of either of the parties to throw in their two cents as 'friends' of McGruder (shades of Dave Chappelle, anyone? Perhaps another reminder to those currently involved with the 'intellectual property' of the Boondocks -that McGruder is an artist and a gentleman, and that they are neither- is now in order?).

'Final season' designation notwithstanding, I predict that they will be able to milk this for at least another couple of years before the rest of the audience wakes up.

The third season of The "Boondocks" ended with a good, weird parody of "24," mirroring some of the themes of the pilot episode but adding more explosions. Beautiful! Series concluded. Roll credits.

Unfortunately for all of humanity, "The Boondocks" was resurrected nearly four years later with no themes, few ideas, and a sort of amnesia about why the show even existed. Creator Aaron McGruder, who was always a little prickly, bailed during production, and a skeleton crew salvaged 10 episodes from the wreckage. You will wish they didn't. With the partial exception of "Freedom Ride or Die," a flashback episode about Grandad's accidental Civil Rights heroism, these stories are witless and irrelevant.

Where to start with this mess? At least half of it rewrites -- badly -- solid previous episodes. Stinkmeaner is cloned and set up to fight Grandad in a boring parody of the character's first appearance. Grandad buys a phone with Siri, and learns that even computers can be dominating, crazy women. He dates a fake Kardashian sister and learns the same thing. He becomes a gigolo and -- ha, ha are you laughing yet? An on-again off-again plot has the family going bankrupt and being sold into a slavery theme park. It's painful to think of what a better creative team might have done with that joke. This one created a boring Very Special Episode, one of several that over-use Uncle Ruckus.

This set is a public health hazard that must be avoided at all costs. If you liked the show, pretend that it ended with season 3.
