Finally the 4th season of The Boondocks premiered Monday night. Many things have happened over the last few years and I have thought, “I wish The Boondocks was on for this.” And now it’s finally here!
Last night’s episode made quite a statement. The episode was based around an R&B singer named Pretty Boy Flizzy, voiced by Michael B. Jordan, who was clearly based on Chris Brown. He had beat his girlfriend, Christianna up a few years back and sense got into bad situation after bad situation, most mirroring that of Chris. Flizzy came to Tom to represent him in his most recent case, which was for robbing a store. At the time, Tom was going through it with his wife Sarah because she thought he was too soft. At first Tom turned down the case, but then he decided to represent Flizzy so that he could teach him how to make Sarah happy. As soon as I tuned in and saw that they were going in on Chris all I could do was laugh. It was the Law & Order SVU episode all over again. As has always been the case with The Boondocks took a controversial situation and made fun of it. I would say it was old, but then again Chris is currently in jail.
Overall what I took from the episode that now not only is R&B about as rough in content as hip hop, but we spend a ridiculous amount of time talking about these artist’s scandals and giving them attention for acting up. We all know these reality TV shows take advantage of the thirst for drama and craziness. Be it for real or staged to get attention, we are all eyes and ears when it comes to celebrities in the news.
Although I hoped for a bit more, I thought it was a cool start. It set me to thinking of what will be on this season. I’m thinking Kardashians, Kanye, Miley, Terrio, and twerkin, just for starters.
I was disappointed to hear that Aaron McGruder was not involved with this season, but it may still be a good season.
I know I will be tuning in Monday nights to see. Cannot what to see what Granddad, Huey, Riley, Uncle Ruckus and the rest of the crew gets into.
