I got to give credit where credit is due. Although I think Regular Show was at it's best from seasons 1-3, the show is still pretty good and interesting. I think season 4 was the worst season, but other then that the show has been pretty good. I still think Thomas ad CJ added a lot of fillers, but the show was overall still pretty good. Regular Show was and still is a pretty good show. I also still enjoy the adult humor in the show.
Regular Show started out as a good show; with likeable characters, clever humor and we'll written plots. Along side Adventure Time, it was one of Cartoon Networks best shows. Now the show is the one thing it was never supposed to be: boring. This show is boring now and that's beyond sad because the whole concept of the show was to be exciting, over the top, fun for kids and adults. Now it's just stale and not surprising anymore; this show has become so bland that not even that characters can save it. Mordecai and Rigby were my favorite characters on the show; park employees who mess things up but make everything right together. Now Mordecai and Rigby might as well be background characters because they're not in the spotlight as often. Benson was more like me; hot tempered but still expects the best from his employees; now he act more like a jerk. Forcing Mordecai and Rigby to run a lap after they ate a 4 foot long sandwich that made them sick? What? That's not what Benson would do; characters aside the show's writing has gotten really stale. The love triangle between Mordecai, Margaret and CJ is still going on, Benson broke up with Audrey for a reason that's never explained and Thomas turned out to be a Russian spy. I am not making that up, instead of making Thomas a more engaging character in the show, they made him a spy. What the fuck?! Where did that come from? Why make Thomas a spy? That was never established, never hinted at, not once was it implied that he was a spy. Then there are episode that revisit old characters from previous seasons and it doesn't work because we haven't seen these characters since their first appearance. If it was from last season, I'd understand; but from 4-5 seasons ago? What? You can't do that because that literally proves your running out of ideas. If you ask me, I think this show had its fun and need to end on a high note. Just make one more season and end the show there because it's clearly not getting better.
Update: Sad to say, the show has been... ehhh-- going downhill a bit. Mostly because due to, as I said in my old review, Mordecai's girl troubles and love drama. I kinda want to see more than that.
Old Review: Don't get me wrong, I like this show but at the same time it kinda gets boring fast. Like Mordecai with his girl troubles, muscle man (he's my less favorite character, very annoying to me) jokes, or even the random people popping up during dangerous situations.
Though some of the good points about this show are the designs for the characters and the music. But yeah, overall it's just a so-so show to me.
When I first came to the Regular Show was the first show that made me say: Holy ***, whoever created this show must be either a crazy lucky dude or one of the most intelligent people in the media business. This was before the third season. It seems that the creators are running out of ideas and try to do the same thing over and over and make it seem funny. If the first seasons weren't awesome, this would be a negative review. My personal advice to the writers: Grow up and let the show grow as well. Season 4 did a bit of this, but you can do better.
Season 1: 9/10
Season 2: 9/10
Season 3: 5.5/10
Season 4: 8/10
Season 5: 6/10
Season 6: 3/10
Over All: Don't let it go down and it'll be awesome
Music: Acceptable: 6/10
2014 Update: WHAT DID I JUST SAY? It's so unpredictable it's predictable. There is so much drama in Mordecai-related episodes that it's beyond boring! You know a show is bad when you end up rooting for a character like Rigby. However, it has its moments. It is still watchable. For now.
2015 Update: Spoiler alert! But not really. We again have a heartbroken Mortdecai. To make matters worse, the horrendous anime parody was grotesque and well overdone. And we have Muscle Man's wedding... which focused on Mortdecai. The show is still watchable, but it feels like a chore to watch. Hopefully next season will be better, but that's because it can't possibly get any worse!
I am a fan of the show, last episode I watched was last year in September and I don't know if its just me but, the plots are all getting very similar too much. I insist on handing you the same plots in a lot of recent episodes, but not much in the first 3 seasons. It's an OK show now, its classic pop culture-istic adventures are fun to look at and just others aren't (the true love stuff, eh ok uh naw). I hope it it has a good turn around soon that brings a hefty laugh back to my face.
Regular show is an amazing show I love all the characters personalities and I really love the art I'm gonna give every thing about it a rating 1/10. Writing 8.5/ 10 Its really good most times , they rarely have episodes that are out right terrible or boring like " garage door" and I noticed they are making more emotional episodes I fell like they are making way too many these days especially in season 6 Art 9/10 Animation -1,20000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000/10 the animation is really terrible but its TV animation and they get low budgets the only TV animation cartoon that has really good animation is spongebob
- Mordecai and rigby (Sometimes other characters) get into trouble because the duo was slacking off
- Trouble escalates into a massive scale problem and reveals an antagonist
- Climax includes: Fist fighting, explosions, and sometimes the destruction of the park. (This is ALMOST the same exact climax for every episode)
- Ends with a corny joke or reference
Regular show, on occasion, can have great comedy and humor; However the episodes follow the same guidelines or formula. The characters are shallow and have no depth at all! They don't share emotion or back story (Except mordecai, skips, and pops). In addition, the show was great for the first couple of seasons but now... it's just too generic and predictable to watch. Finally, I hope they can find a way to make the show more better and diverse within episodes.
Final thought: The show is overrated and this slightly proves that the majority of people have problems with pattern solving. (<--- Guarantee this, show someone 6 episodes past seasons 2 and I bet they will say something like "Omg so funny!" when the same material was used over and over again. I still cannot understand how people can't see that ALMOST EVERY EPISODE IS THE EXACT SAME! One of the frustrating things you see in pop cultures)
Reason for being overrated? :
- Pattern solving deficiency in majority of people?
- Target audience is younger than expected?
- Peer pressure to like the show?
- Maybe people like simplistic shows and easy to understand characters?
I apologize in advance to the fans of this show, but everyone has an opinion on something, and my opinion on Regular Show is that it SUCKS! Horribly! I watched some of this show, I thought I'd give it a chance and I originally gave it a mediocre score. But now that I've watched more of it, I realize just how shitty this cartoon is.
Regular Show doesn't offer much of anything entertaining. Most of the characters aren't likable, especially Rigby, the plots are pretty random and non-sensical, and it doesn't have a very good art style. Mordecai and Rigby, I'm sad to say, are the main characters. From what I've seen, they do whatever they can to skip out on doing work. Rigby in particular is pretty unlikable, due to how lazy and selfish he is most of the time. The other characters don't help the show for me either. Benson is loud, Pops sort of creeps me out, and Muscle Man is just unbearable.
The plots for the show are strange. They always seem to end up with some of the characters going into some crazy other world or a different dimension, usually due to Mordecai and Rigby doing something stupid. It's just too freakin' weird for me. The humor can be good sometimes, but mostly, it's pretty obnoxious, particularly whenever Muscle Man ends a question with "My Mom! Wooooo!" Also, there are a lot of innuendos in Regular Show. Isn't it great that Cartoon Network is showing kids a show with a raccoon joking about 'pulling hammies'? NO! It's not great CN! What are you thinking nowadays?!
I will admit that Regular Show has got some really cool music, Skips is a pretty cool character, and Mordecai has his moments. But apart from those things, I do not like this cartoon at all. It's highly overrated, and I don't get why this show is so freakin' popular. Ugh! I'm gonna get so much heat for this review. Oh well.
You see, what I like about this show is that there is a lo of problems we regularly identify with, girl problems, friends with a mind like Rigby's and y'know, but what what makes me love the show is that the characters remain priceless when there is a problematic, also, they take things or problems to the next, hardcore level, which makes it a good surrealistic and action-packed show, without losing too much its balance and its groundbreaking emotional tension. You always feel something that a character goes through. When I saw one of the episodes, like "Bad Kiss" and "More Smarter" I couldn't sleep, because the show is just two steps ahead of my trai f thought and exploits all emotions young people like me experience as hardcore as hardcore can be.
When I was 13, my younger aunt showed me this show on and I thought it was going to be boring just because it was called "Regular I was so wrong. I saw a few episodes and after seeing "Rigby's Body," I became obsessed with the show. I was obsessed with the show throughout 8th grade, but when I entered my freshman year in high school, my obsession wore off and I haven't seen the show in quite a while. I still think that it is good and it is a show that I recommend. Also, I may do some catching up on the show.
Now what keeps me from giving this show a 10, is due to Benson. It is funny, yet understandable when he gets angry, but he can be a bit too harsh. Mordecai and Rigby are also hard to root for sometimes because they always cause trouble and slack off. I still think that they are cool. I can relate to Mordecai because I have a sense of responsibility and fun at the same time. I also think that Muscle Man is funny too, especially when he tells jokes about his mom. Pops is also like SpongeBob because he is childish yet good natured.
Another cartoon that really needs to get 5 stars. I am pretty impressed with the plot, the animation, and mostly the twist of the story. It's supernatural and dark telling, which is that I like, and I love the characters. So I'm rating this five stars! :)
Originally, this show was supposed to be on Adult Swim, but they declined it and Cartoon Network picked it up. Some of the episodes have some inappropriate and violent scenes. But I still think it's good.
Yeah its overrated. However its not terrible. Most of the characters are good however muscleman is one of the turn offs. He's a jackass jerk face asshole. I hate him almost as much as I hate modern Timmy Turner. The humor is great. The story is very formulaic and incredibility repetitive. The surrealism is great so overall its good but not great.
This is my all time favorite cartoon show ever. It's funny and I love the characters though I don't know why they took out the rude jokes. Here are the season ratings (out of how many episodes there are)...
Season 1: 12/12, every episode was at it's best and funniest, especially caffeinated concert tickets
Season 2: 24/28, the most epic episodes in this season were appreciation day, jinx, grave sights and over the top, and every other episode was great except for Benson be gone, muscle woman, see you there and first day
Season 3: 3/39, not the best season, only Terror tales of the park, eggscellent and fists of justice were the good episodes
Season 4: 30/37, I can't name every bad episode but I can say that season 4 picked up where season 3 failed
Season 5: 28/37, Somewhere in between seasons 3 and 4
Even with some bad episodes this show is still the best on cartoon network, but JG Quintel, take my advice and stop making romantic episodes
The Regular Show features two adults, Mordecai and Rigby, as they work at their not-so-boring jobs in the park. This show is like many of the newer Chartoon Network shows as it seems to be made for teens rather than kids. Parents, I would advise watching a few episodes before letting your younger children watch it. In season one, I very much enjoyed this show as it had a fresh and modern feel with a somewhat original plot. After a while, the show began to get old and quite a bit annoying. Mordecai, Skips, and Pops are probably the only characters that I enjoy on the show anymore. The plots began to all roll together where Mordecai and Rigby would "slack off" at work, Benson would threaten to fire them, then they would get into some major trouble that ALWAYS ended up in fist fights, explosions, and destroying the park. The two, as well, are quite a bit annoying as they, and everyone else in the show really, represent today's pop culture in an at first amusing, but now quite obnoxious way. For example, they walk around making admittedly clever raps which turn into annoying chants where after they would always go "WOOOAAAH!!' together in sync. As I said, at first this was somewhat amusing. My siblings and I still quote their ringtone song. Rigby is probably my least favorite character in the show as he is a complete narcissistic jerk; particularly to Mordecai who is supposed to be his best friend. In one episode, Rigby is supposed to clean up the mess he made in their room but refuses and buys "Wall Buddy" to separate the rooms and put the mess in Mordecai's half so he would have to clean it instead of Rigby. If I were Mordecai, I would have been quite ticked as well, however Rigby turns the whole situation on Mordecai saying it was his fault for flaking and not taking responsibility for a mess he didn't create. Rigby is not in any means a good friend and is always at the center when either of the two get into trouble. Mordecai is the more responsible of the two but is always dragged into dangerous situations because of Rigby. Now, as I previously mentioned, the show is starting to make a come back as they have clearly taken out many of the played out elements such as the constant fist fighting. However, how well it will do remains to be seen. I can say I may watch it if it happens to be on but I will most likely not turn to it.
Now when Regular Show started, I liked it. I liked Season 1 and a few episodes in Season 2, but I felt like after Season 3 and beyond, the show took a decline in quality. In the old episodes, Mordecai and Rigby were just normal workers who didn't act jerky at all. Now in the new episodes, they act like jerks sometimes. Like in one episode, Rigby was trying to help Mordecai get over Margaret and he tosses him out of the car. And in another episode, Rigby is too lazy to clean up his messes, so he uses a Wall Buddy that tosses his trash onto Mordecai's side of the room. The other characters except Pops and Skips have their bad moments as well. At the end of one episode, Benson eats the last Best Burgers in the World which won't come back until the next 1,000 years. And they'll all be dead by then! I don't like Muscle Man that much in the newer episodes. I mean, he was fine earlier in the series. He and his jokes were tolerable back then, but now, he is starting to get annoying now. He has too much episodes centered around him and they start to get tiring very quickly. Speaking of tiring plots, I've noticed a lot of episodes in the series involving Mordecai and Rigby messing some job up. Yes, we get it. They're lazy slackers. You don't need to make a bunch of episodes to prove your point. We need more Pops episodes, more Skips episodes, heck, even more Thomas episodes! He doesn't really get used a lot in the newer episodes. Also, not a lot of supernatural things happen much in the newer episodes. I feel as though they toned those down in the newer episodes. So yeah, I would recommend that you watch Season 1 and 2 and stop there. The newer eps are just not doing it for me.
This show isn't like other cartoons. It contains an adult world with a childhood mood. I like every episode of the show, and even while watching an episode i've watched before i just laugh again. I hope it'll be around for a long time.
This show is too violent because the blue bird keeps punching the raccoon. What if some kid did that to another kid? It also promotes bullying and bad words. How this got on the air in the first place baffles me! I want to kill the person who made this with a knife and chainsaw, because it suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuux!
I think that people are crazy for hating this show. It has lower ratings than GRAVITY FALLS! C'mon, let's get real here. I am glad there are no butt jokes in this show cause that would ruin how good it is. People, you need to learn a lesson from the best (right here)
