It took a while but those crazy Boondocks characters are back making us howl with laughter. When you are trying to think of an example of an animated series that is intended solely for adults (actually that is a long list) The Boondocks should be at or near the top of the list. They are filthy mouthed, highly sexual and just plain dirty. While this is not the series’ best work it is still wonderful in the way it takes the crap out of pop culture.
