The second season of The Boondocks has started on the Cartoon Network. New episodes air at 11:30 pm on Mondays. Of the first few episodes, my feeling is that they have been kind of hit or miss. The one that aired this Monday, Thank You For Not Snitching, was a hit in my book. The link will take you to the online version.
In the opening scene, Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummy, criminally minded Iraq War vets, are on their way to a home break-in. While the crime is part of the plot, the scene is really about creepy ass blue tooth phones. Ed has one and Rummy hates it.
Rummy says nearly everything I would say about why creepy ass blue tooth phones are a blight on humanity, except it is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, which means it's much cooler than what Matty Boy would say. It also has about 50% more obscenities than I would use, but it's SAMUEL L. JACKSON, MOTHER F#@KER!
He has to use obscenities, it's in his contract.
You can watch up to the title sequence if you are pressed for time. But you will miss Marion Ross as a member of a neighborhood watch group packing an automatic weapon.
