Regular Show: Mordecai And Margaret Pack 5 DVD Review

Regular Show- Mordecai and Margaret Pack 5 DVD

“Mordecai and Margaret” is a very thematic “Regular Show” DVD.

If you don’t feel like waiting for “Regular Show” season sets or simply can’t afford them, you might want to check out the latest single DVD release dubbed “Regular Show: Mordecai and Margaret Pack 5.” This disc contains 16 episodes from season 1, 2, 3, and 4 that are (mostly) about relationships. Fans can expect to see stories about Mordecai and Rigby trying to earn money for concert tickets, Muscle Man having issues with his girlfriend (Starla), a double date, cruising, Mordecai mistakenly thinking Margaret is engaged, a B-Day party for Margaret, Mordecai and Rigby teaching Muscle Man proper etiquette, Margaret’s diary, Mordecai and Margaret’s first kiss, a going away party for Margaret, a kiss + diaper bet, Mordecai running into trouble with an odd group, a meteor shower, Margaret’s father, Mordecai wanting Margaret to be his girlfriend.

Instead of releasing another random assortment of episodes like Warner Brothers does with many current series, the studio wisely released a themed set. In the case of this disc, the episodes primarily revolve around relationships (namely Mordecai and Margaret and Muscle Man and Starla’s relationships). As a result of this business decision, you get a really fun and funny batch of character driven episodes. While watching these episodes, it feels as if you are watching an ongoing story arc unfolds before your eyes. More than, however, it feels like you are watching a natural progression of some of the show’s core characters. While you could feel this way watching entire seasons, I think it’s even more beneficial to see a chunk of episodes that all share a similar subject or story arc.

Another major plus about this disc is the fact that the show really feels like its coming into its own with these 16 episodes. Instead of focusing merely on eccentric humor and Mordecai and Rigby’s hijinks like it did early on, you get a lot of characterization and ongoing plotlines with memorable episodes like “Bad Kiss,” “Steak Me Amadeus,” and “Family BBQ.”

Video/Audio:

Presentation: Widescreen. How does it look? While the show does not boast the most sophisticated animation, it still looks colorful and sharp in standard definition.

Audio Track: Dolby Digital 2.0. How does it sound? While a 5.1 track would have been better, this 2.0 track still does the job.

Extras:
* “Regular Show,” “Scooby-Doo: Wrestlemania Mystery,” and “Adventure Time” ads
* An amusing Steak Me Amadeus Commercial which is clearly a parody of the “Rock Me Amadeus” song.
