It was garbage. I used to follow the comic religiously, but when McGruder got that television show it's like he completely lost all semblance of subtle comic timing and it became an exercise in stating the obvious. Also the animation is the laziest I've ever seen in a modern cartoon, as bad as Hanna-Barbara shit in the '70s and '80s.
It's good for crude ghetto humor and occasional based satire or parodies. After a while though it got tiresome, like most over-stretched series.
>>9404>it became an exercise in stating the obvious.
Sometimes the obvious is what needs to be stated.>>9422
I agree that it felt like it went for too long. Apparently Aaron ran out of steam on a personal level and that's part of why season 4 sucked. The comic always had the benefit of riffing on current events. Even with as big a topic as racism and black culture there's only so much (network approved) material to make TV episodes out of.
>>9401>How based was this show?
It's very based. I have trouble thinking of a time where it had a bad take, although obviously the radical leanings had to be toned way down.>And, do you have faith that the reboot will do any justice to the previous seasons?
On the one hand I think the show mostly ran its course. On the other I think that times having changed somewhat on the topic of race may have opened up what the network will allow them to do.
Uncle Ruckus was based.
>>9401>how based was this show
the most based show on tv ever
- anti capitalist
- anti american
- anti liberal
- drops the word "nigger" 40 times an episode
- anti white
- directed by a black man
all your instincts tell you that this show would never be allowed to air, and yet it somehow beat the odds.
Only complaint I've heard about the show was the lack of women, but there's a reason for that.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3XgpPhUEFE
Was based, ran its course, and if they reboot it now it will most likely stink. That's because it was a product of its time, a critique of the false normalcy of the Bush-Obama years. After Trump, like as not they will up the preachy-ness and tone down the crude humor, robbing the show of its authenticity.
is it leftist or just anti-capitalist
I think it's just anti-capitalist.
It's supper missanthropic,
I think to be a leftist you have to be a little optimistic that a better world is possible.
The main character is supposed to be a revolutionary but it's just athletic, I was hoping that they would develop this but they never did.
Iv not read the comics, maby there more optimistic.
Wasn't Uncle Ruckus a black-hating black? /pol/ seems to love him.
he is what /pol/ calls "one of the good ones"
boondocks and aqua teen hunger force as reboot and this decade is saved
Problem is they'd never make the reboot any good… even if they did manage to get liberals to ignore the politically incorrect lingo
This guy makes good videos relating to the Boondocks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wo4QIXvFUvo
Half the Tubesteak promos were based.>>9642>Apparently Aaron ran out of steam on a personal level and that's part of why season 4 sucked
Pretty sure he wasn't even involved in Season 4https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=aaron%20mcgruder%20season%204
Tbh I think it is leftist, it’s just that the current generation of leftists probably can’t comprehend the world of the post-Soviet collapse
Remember, Cockshott himself writes that around the 90s most leftists had given in and accepted the supremacy of liberalism and the Market. I think Boondocks is representative of that first generation having grown up when neoliberalism came to power and defeated the worldwide socialist movement.
He wasn’t, Season 3 was his last season and the producers themselves wrote 4 because they didn’t want it to end, a lot of fans think the sole quality episode in that season was written by McGruger himself, he just didn’t reveal it.
Eh, it was obvious he was a radlib, I never read into him as more than that TBH, based thoughts or not.
Black Dynamite was also great, Head Ninja In Charge lol
>>12696>sole quality episode in that season
Episode number? I might just watch that and not the rest.
>>9401>>11162>Wasn't Uncle Ruckus a black-hating black? /pol/ seems to love him.>>12199>he is what /pol/ calls "one of the good ones"
Uncle Ruckus is a parody of /pol/. Self-hating ugly mutts.
There's a sizeable difference between uygha and uyghur. I don't think I've ever heard it with a hard R on the show.
I mean Uncle Ruckus was sort of self-criticism of some aspects of Black culture, and that's fine, /pol/ ignores that in favor of stanning him as "le niger-h8r" with no nuance whatsoever. >>19531
They probably didn't use it because even with an R rating they probably didn't want to risk saying a hard r. That being said from personal experience among Black acquaintances, the hard R (at least in my area) is used to be specifically offensive, while uygha is more like "dude", although, like in Boondocks, tone and emphasis on the word also dictates different meanings.
>>19533>personal experience among Black acquaintances
Yeah exactly. It's rare to hear black people say it with a hard R. That's why I hate when rightoids are all like blacks say it all the time. No sweaty, not really.
It's so funny/sad seeing all the dumbfuck retarded Americans on /co/ still cope to this day that McGruder isn't leftist despite being a card-carrying socialist and, well, literally everything about the show and comic…
Man I remember that event, it was so fucking funny.
>Alterman walked out. “I turned to Joe and said, ‘I can’t listen to this crap anymore,’” he remembers. “I went out into the Metropolitan Club lobby—it’s a nice lobby—and I worked on my manuscript.”
>Newfield joined in the heckling, as did Stephen Cohen, a historian and the husband of Katrina vanden Heuvel. “It was like watching LeRoi Jones try to Mau-Mau a guilty white liberal in the sixties,” Newfield says. “It was out of a time warp. Who is he to insult people who have been putting their careers and lives on the line for equal rights since before he was born?”
>By the time McGruder had finished, and a tipsy Joe Wilson took the microphone to deliver his New Year’s Resolutions, perhaps half the guests had excused themselves to join Alterman in the lobby. A Nation contributor estimated that McGruder had offended eighty per cent of the audience. “Some people still haven’t recovered,” he said, sounding thrilled.
>“At a certain point, I just got the uncomfortable feeling that this was a bunch of people who were feeling a little too good about themselves,” McGruder said afterward. “These are the big, rich white leftists who are going to carry the fight to George Bush, and the best they can do is blame Nader?”
Didn't it get cancelled?
