It started to go downhill a little in the third and fourth seasons, but it’s still one of my favorite shows of all time and I can’t wait for the return.

This is some of the best news I’ve heard in a while. I can’t wait! Definitely one of the best shows ever made.

ETA: Wait, what is HBO Max?

ETA, again: HBO Max will be a streaming service that is entirely separate from what HBO already provides (HBO Go / Now). So even if you’re already paying for HBO, you’ll need to pony up some more money to get Boondocks (as far as I can tell). But you’ll also get access to a new Dune TV series about the Bene Gesseret and a Gremlins animated series so…maybe it’ll be worth it?

ETA, again again: To be clear, I think it will only be worth it if the Gremlins cartoon somehow manages to surpass the greatness of Gremlins 2, which I highly doubt will happen.


Apparently a second standalone HBO streaming service that will have the same content as HBO Now plus new material from Warner and be a few bucks more.



I tried to re-watch this show a couple of years ago. It doesn’t really hold up. It’s very much of an era.

Fine, but not enough for me to subscribe. I’ll just wait till it filters down to Adult Swim.


IIRC Aaron McGruder wasn’t involved in the last season. But I thought it was a fantastic show. Smart, funny, and many Star Wars and Anime/Japanese film references.

Shiver me timbers, man. It’s like everyone forgot why we abandoned cable/satellite.


I seem to recall that there was unsuccessful crowdfunding for a live-action series about Uncle Ruckus a few years ago. I wonder if any of that material will appear in the new show.

Uncle Ruckus in charge? In charge of what?
