    This show airs late night here in Canada.

    And honestly I've been aware of the show for a while.But I decided to give this show a chance.Mainly because at the time there was nothing else for me to watch:D 

    But I've got to admit that it's a pretty decent show.Although to be honest I don't recall seeing any show that uses the "N word" so much in 1 episode:lol 

    I just love the dynamic between Riley and his grandfather Robert Freeman.Good lord that man knows how to use a belt.Heck I'd be afraid of my parents too if they could work a belt like that.

    So does anyone else here follow the show?

    I've seen a few episodes. Gets tiring after a while, not really enough content to fill out a full 22 minutes. Would suit an 11 minute episode much better, and probably only one season's worth at that.

    Great show. I'm occassionally offended by the stereotypical depictions of white characters, but most of it is funny.

    For some reason, I never liked the show when I first watched it. But I think the Martin Luther King Jr episode won me over. The best scene has gotta be Huey's explanation of the movie Soul Food though, you never realized it that way.

    Too bad were not getting Season 2 until 2007.

    did they start a new season? I've got all of the first on my computer and have read the comics since it's second year. I always have liked it, for better or worse, although the toon gets kind of depressing sometimes, like the one where riley goes after santa.

    I've seen a couple of episodes. Boring, annoying, and just generally not that interesting. Though that describes pretty much everything on Cartoon Network in the last couple of years.

    "You can't serve this to people! It's cause....death."

    I also like the one where Uncle Ruckus starts his own church. "Step forward, so I can lay my hands upon you!"

    Thuggin Love was another good one.

    "Would you mind repeatin that? I couldn't hear you over the sound of me sh**in myself."

    The Martin Luthor King Jr. Epsidode was definately great. I loved how he thought the McRib sandwich was the best thing ever.

    My favorite has to be the one about N-Word Moments. I loved how FEMA was the leading cause of death among black males.

    I saw the episode where they were trying to kidnap (and save) Oprah Winfrey. They ended up with Bill Cosby, and brought him back to the studio. It was one funny show, but I object to the frequent and disgusting use of the N word and other profanity.

    I love the show and I love the fact that we live in a country where such a show can get on the air. One of the most basic lessons that we learn early on in life is quickly forgotten as we age, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me." If you don't like it, change the channel. If you do like it, laugh, cry, etc. just enjoy. I have enjoyed every episode and look forward to next season.

    Watched about 5 minutes of the first episode, didn't like the animation or the characters, changed the channel.

    Fantastic show. Blunt, mean and armed with some pretty important messages about stereotypes and racism.
