Regular Show: The Best DVD In The World Review

“Regular Show” fans will enjoy this new disc.  

If you can’t get enough of the oddball slackers/park groundskeepers (Rigby the Raccoon and Mordecai the Blue Jay), you’re in luck! This new DVD release features 16 eleven minute episodes from various seasons of the wacky series. Fans of “Regular Show” can now relive many of their favorite episodes about such topics as: a basketball game, Mordecai and Rigby trying to be cool while riding bikes, holograms, burgers, intelligence, a party, a deer-man, name changing, a rap-poetry battle, Mordecai falling for Margaret, Benson’s anger, video games, technology errors, an omelet contest, Muscle Man mentoring Rigby, an epic fight, and Muscle Man’s dad.

If you’ve never heard of “Regular Show” before, it’s a surrealistic, weird, imaginative animated series that appeals to adults and children much like another Cartoon Network hit (“Adventure Time”). The only difference between the two, in my humble opinion, is that “Regular Show” is actually funny.

To say “Regular Show” is anything but regular is an understatement. In one episode you might see pop culture/film references to “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” while in another episode you might bear witness to a sort of commentary on the video game culture. ‘Regular’ never feels tired or gets repetitive as there is always something fresh happening in the series whether it be with the core characters or one of the other characters like the bizarre Hi-Five Ghost, Skips, and Benson. In other words, it’s unique which separates it from a lot of the toons on television.

Video/Audio:

The 2D animated series, which is presented in widescreen, is nothing to ride home about as the animation style is fairly traditional. With that said, it still looks solid although I’m sure it probably looks more impressive on the HD Cartoon Network channel.

Considering “Regular Show” is rather lively, a Dolby Digital 2.0 hardly seems fitting. This show certainly could have used a 5.1 track, but the 2.0 tracks is adequate enough.

Extras:
* “Regular Show: Slack Pack” and 2 “Adventure Time” DVD ads.
* Text employee profiles for Mordecai, Rigby, Benson, Pops, Skips, Muscle Man, Hi-Five Ghost, Margaret, and Eileen.
