HBO The antics of self-proclaimed “Civil Rights Legend” Robert “Granddad” Freeman. And his two rowdy grandkids Huey and Riley would have been the focus of Max’s new Boondocks. The family has recently relocated to a lovely suburban Maryland community. And then it was taken over by the tyrant Uncle Ruckus, a weird neo-fascist dictatorship. Life under Ruckus turns out to be a daily survival struggle.
