Boondocks Season 2


This morning Whoopi directed me to a link of the first episode of Boondocks Season 2 and I was like "What! They already came out with the episode! I thought it would be later this month!" Nope! It's online at adultswim.com and I'm so glad it is because I no longer have cable and would not be able to watch it otherwise. That was one of the things I feared most with leaving my old apartment and moving here with my grandmother, not having cable to watch (mainly) the Boondocks among other things.

This episode, titled " ... Or die tryin'" was about the stereotype of black folks who go to the movie. And I must admit I fell under a few of those categories. Especially sneaking unusual foods into the theater. Once I took ships and guacamole in the theater with Hilary. I didn't like the ending too much. It was a bit cheesy but the rest of the episode was pretty solid and so were the fight scenes. The opening titles were pretty sweet but I felt they were a little tamed down from last year's opening titles but they are still great and have the same great theme song. Seems like Regina King (actress who voices Huey and Riley) has given Huey a deeper voice. Are the Boondocks kid growing up? Or is King just trying to give Huey a more matured tone of voice? Check it out with the link I gave below along with some of my favorite quotes from the episode.

Shortly after I watch the episode, Whoopi sent me the first rough cut of the two scenes that we filmed.






This is a really great short film from a guy I know through these Star Wars Fan Film Boards and now I know through YouTube. He's a made a few cool test but I never saw a whole short from him. This one is pretty nice! Check it out. It's called "Life of a Liar"



Peace.
