  • Why???

    5.5
    After being blown away by the Season 4 Premiere "Exit 9B", the 2nd episode of Season 4 was this one and my goodness, it really wasn't good. I couldn't believe what I have just watched. I mean, it's not god awful or anything like that, not even close but when the writers go all-out with the season premiere... you would expect them to do much better by the next episode and the next episode and so on. With Thomas being the new character and him not being in this season much since the writers don't give a crap about him. This might be the biggest role we will get out of Thomas and that's it. There were funny moments here and there. What definitely ruined it though was MuscleMan just constantly picking on Thomas and being mean to him and all that even though the initation to being a park member was over. I did laugh at a few of MuscleMan's pranks on Thomas but it did get old after a while and you just despise MuscleMan more and more and around the second half of the episode and it was just MuscleMan going on a complete rampage. Dear Lord, why is MuscleMan such a jerk? plus the ending just wasn't any better and Thomas (the only time I actually disliked him) was in on it so I was actually glad that Thomas didn't have a car. He put poor Mordecai and Rigby through all of that trouble for nothing. At least the rest of the season isn't bad so far... I'm sure I'll forget this episode ever existed though since it's really not memorable and I'm actually reviewing this before I forget it exists so yeah... mediocrity all around it is more like it. 5.5/10moreless

    After Thomas has been hired, he goes through an inititation, involving pranks from Mordecai, Rigby, and the other park employees. The next day, though, Muscle Man goes further in pranking Thomas, much to the concern and annoyance of Mordecai and Rigby. This was a great but not as awesome episode as Exit 9B. Although this is barely the second episode of season 4, Muscle Man has to be a main character here (so far two MM themed episodes). He was decent up until the climax of the episode which is a remake of Muscle Mentor because we basically hear his squealing for like a minute. The pranks here were funny at first but got worn of it after awhile. Muscle Man is basically mean to Thomas now b/c at the beginning of next episode he scolds him and Guy's Night, he tells him to bring the chips. But I found that a tad funny. The funniest part in this episode was that video with a guy named Keith getting pranked by his co-workers. Overall this was a great am being generous with this rating because I don't want it to be the same rating as Muscle Mentor. 8/10moreless
  • O.K. Season 4 is starting off a rough start.

    6.0
    O.K. wow, I really thought this was an O.K./decent episode to watch. Now Regular Show is my all time favorite show, but I"m scared of this being bad. I mean out of 4 episodes 2 of them got a 6 or lower out of a ten. I hope it get's better. Anyway Thomas goes through his initiation week by pranking him, but MuscleMan takes it way to far. Now this episode di start of kind of strong with MuscleMan pranking Thomas, but after 5 minutes it got annoying. Why my score is so low is MuscleMan was being a big jerk to Thomas, the episode actually felt a little rushed and the ending was predicable. There were funny moments like MuscleMan watching the video Benson told him to watch, the beginning with Muscleman pranks but it got old after a while. Overall, an O..K episode of Regular Show.moreless
  • Descent episode to watch

    7.5
    If they give this episode on re-runs, I won't mind because I actually like this episode. It is pretty good to watch. I laughed and enjoyed because it was a great idea putting Muscle Man to prank Thomas and I liked the fact that Muscle Man kept pranking and the ending was very unexpecting to me. It certainly wasn't perfect but it wasn't bad. I give this episode a 7.5 out of 10, which is descent.moreless
