Boondocks shall return for a new season

If ya'll have been digging The Boondocks, you'll be happy to know that a brand new season will be kicking off later this year. Adult Swim has bought twenty new episodes of the series. I haven't quite made up my mind about the show, though I did go into it with high hopes. Several episodes have been brilliant, but others have left me cold. What keeps me from dismissing the show entirely is that it's the only show of its kind out there right now, and, being an animated program, it's able to get away with saying some of the stuff it does. It's as if I'm drawn more to what the show stands for than the show itself. That's admirable in it's own way, but it doesn't always make for the best television. I never walk away from an episode of The Boondocks unmoved, but I don't always walk away entertained. What keeps me from turning my back on it completely is those moments when the show proves it's capable of doing both.
