IT'S NOT EVEN WORTH A FULL REVIEW: I'm
not a big fan of the strip to begin with, but last night's TV debut of The Boondocks was just painfully bad. The storyline actually had some potential, but the sluggish script generally failed to translate that potential into comedy. Or perhaps I'm blaming the wrong culprit: The dialogue may well have been snappy and well-paced on the page, but it lost something when the inept animators failed to synchronize it with the characters' lip movements. Cartoon Network bathed the whole thing in self-congratulatory hype, which only made me dislike it more. This wasn't the world's worst televised interpretation of a comic strip -- that would be Washingtoon -- but it's close.
