From the same maker of The Boondocks, there is a show called Black Jesus that has come out. The first episode has come out today Cannot wait to watch it later; I hope it is funny, or at least as funny as the Boondocks was.
Did you ever get to watch Black Jesus? I actually really like it. I've seen 3 episodes now and the characters have grown on me. I'm interested to see if they'll ever get their community marijuana garden started. And what is Vic, the nasty landlord planning?
I ended up watching the first episode. Hey, I never knew that the same guy who voiced lamer from GTA was the same voice in Black Jesus lol. I didn't really connect with the first episode. I laughed a few times, but it wasn't smart and witty enough to really hold my attention.
Well it isn't just his voice in Black Jesus, it's also his face. It's a live action show. The characters grow on you so I think maybe you dismissed it too soon by giving up on it after the first episode, but you're entitled to your opinion.
I thought I was going to like Black Jesus but I cannot get in to this show. They have taken things so far over the top that the show is unbearable for me to watch. The humor is just too low brow for me and way to vulgar.
The show is set in Compton. I'm not sure what kind of highbrow humor you expected from a show that's set in the hood. The idea of the show is that if Jesus were alive today, his landlord would think he was a con man that needs to get a job, people would think he was a crazy bum, and people would be unbelieving and disrespectful but Jesus would love them anyway.
This show doesn't actually have a mean bone in its body. Jesus always tries to get his followers to choose nonviolent solutions. Yes he calls God "Pops" and says things like "Trust in yo boy." because a black Jesus in Compton wouldn't speak in Hebrew or Old English. Oh well, the show doesn't necessarily appeal to everyone's taste.
