More "Boondocks" on DVD

By admin Published: March 29, 2008

Still missing the comic strip? Not seeing the series? Season two arrives June 10 and includes two episodes that did not air on U.S. television. Detailed announcement after the jump. Some language may bother people who have no idea what "Boondocks" is like. ...

The official word:

Another season of the must-own provocative Peabody Award-winning comedy, Sony Pictures Television’s The Boondocks: The Complete Second Season – Uncut and Uncensored debuts on DVD June 10 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on Aaron McGruder's award-winning and politically charged comic strip, the three-disc DVD includes all 13 uncut and uncensored episodes from the broadcast season as well as two exclusive bonus episodes never-before-aired in the U.S.: The Hunger Strike with guest stars Cee-Lo, Donald Faison, Tavis Smiley, Debra Wilson and The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show with guest stars Donald Faison and Debra Wilson. Extensive bonus features include commentary from Aaron McGruder on his favorite episodes, and an individual character profile featurette. The set will be available for $49.95 SRP.

The Boondocks: The Complete Second Season – Uncut and Uncensored tracks the adventures of two boys, Riley and Huey Freeman, who experience a culture clash when they move from Southside Chicago to the suburbs to live with their irascible grandfather. Huey, a 10-year-old left wing revolutionary, is determined not to enjoy the affluence of suburbia. This attitude is seconded by his 8-year-old brother, Riley, a proud product of contemporary rap culture. Although they torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, the two aren't any match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by "crazy-ass-old-black-man" standards.

This season of The Boondocks finds Granddad sneaking the boys into the movies because he’s cheap; Riley and Granddad refusing to talk with cops about two local thieves, even after Granddad’s car is stolen; Sarah’s obsession with Usher, who’s threatening her relationship with Tom; Stinkmeaner’s spirit possessing Tom as he tries to get revenge on Granddad; Riley joining the basketball team; and the boys fighting over who will be the boss while Granddad is on vacation.

Regina King (Ray) and John Witherspoon (Friday) are among the actors voicing the characters on this wonderfully cynical comedy. Cedric Yarbrough (TV’s “Reno 911”), Gary Anthony Williams (TV’s “Boston Legal”), Gabby Soleil (Johnson Family Vacation) and Jill Talley (The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie) are also featured in the cast. Guest stars include Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Mos Def (TV’s “Something the Lord Made”), Lil Wayne (Who’s Your Caddy), Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Gnarls Barkley’s Cee-Lo, Donald Faison (TV’s “Scrubs”), Tavis Smiley (TV’s “Tavis Smiley Show”), Xzibit (TV’s “Pimp My Ride”), Charlie Murphy (TV’s “Chappelle’s Show”), Katt Williams, (First Sunday), Snoop Dogg (TV’s “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood”), Mo’Nique (Phat Girlz), Cedric the Entertainer (Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins), and Busta Rhymes (Halloween: Resurrection).
