    I thought that this was not the best obvi. There's just too many episodes for MM and I'm kinda getting tired of it and there's bound to be bad ones here and there. I can say that I just got kinda bored throughout this episode and didn't enjoy it as much as others.
  • I don't like Muscle Man episodes.

    The Longest Weekend is about Muscle Man and . Anyways they see a movie together and Starla says that the movie has inspired her to go 1 weekend without seeing Muscle Man. So, now Muscle Man and Starla must stay away from each other all weekend, to test their love for each other. Anyway's, they both can't take it anymore, so they turn into laser beams and fly into each other. Yayyy, they love each other. Yea I am being VERY generous when giving this episode a 5.moreless

    I don't really think my opinion of this episode hinges on how much I hate Muscle Man or Starla's characters. I just really disliked the theme... it seemed trite and the supernatural part of the episode didn't seem like it was thought out. I liked that Margaret and Eileen made an appearance in this, but that was pretty much it.



    I remember the part that annoyed me to my core was the part with the hammers smashing things. It was funny the first 3 times, but it was a joke that ran for too long of a time, in my opinion.



    Overall, one of my least favorite of the season. Well.... this and Quips.moreless

    Now you think a storyline like this would be pathetic, pointless, and stupid, right? NOT for "Regular Show" because surprisingly the storyline for this episode has actually worked. Knowing what the plot is about, I wasn't really looking forward to it but ended being very surprised by the episode and I really loved it. It's one of the best Season 4 episodes in my humble opinion. The storyline in this episode, to be honest, was very well-put and very creative. Nothing in this episode felt stretched out or anything like that, it just felt all-around very fresh and entertaining for the fans to watch. I'm actually glad Thomas actually made an appearance in this episode too (they really need to get him involved in the adventures). There were many parts in the episode cracked me up such as Mordecai, Rigby, and High Five Ghost chilling and singing their song (first time we see High Five Ghost hang out with them without MuscleMan), MuscleMan just going crazy about not calling Starla, Benson's cameo appearance where he turns ANGRY RED when Mordecai and Rigby were about to throw out the computer, and many many more. The episode gets very strange at the end though because it was an awesome kind of strange. That bell ringing scene completely blew me away though and it had a couple of funny parts during that 30 second scene. It's an episode that's definitely worth a watch and it was just hilarious. Also, that movie "The Longest Weekend" was so stupid but hilarious too... the film that Mordecai, Margaret, Rigby, Eileen, MuscleMan, and Starla were watching. So yeah, a storyline like this actually worked and it could've turned out to be horrible but the writers definitely gave it their best and it succeeds in every way. 10/10moreless

    After Mordecai, Margaret, Rigby, Eileen, Muscle Man, and Starla see a movie called "The Longest Weekend", Starla wanted to put their love to the test to see if she and Muscle Man can be apart all weekend long, and if Muscle Man can't go a whole weekend without her, then Starla will break up with him. Can Muscle Man go a whole weekend without Starla? I thought this episode was great and a tad better than Firework Run. I know Muscle Man is starting to become prominent more than ever since mid season 3 but here it was handled very well. The storyline however was pathetic though. No reasons why, but speaking of that (minor off topic), I don't really mind not seeing my friends for the weekend. However, I cannot go without a month speaking to my best friend because she is really important (not that I had a crush on her, she's a great helper) for me. Anyway back to the episode, characters were decent. Muscle Man wasn't entirely annoying and didn't overuse the pig squealing. He, however, still got a little annoying (and that;s the major problems with his episodes, he overreacts/squeals too much and it rather wearing me the shirt gag and my mom are never going to get old for me) by his usual complaining (glad he didn't complain very lot in Fancy Restaurant) in a couple part. It was great to see High Five Ghost hanging with Mordecai and Rigby when they were chillin' (that part was my favorite). The montage of them trying to get Muscle Man from not think about Starla was pretty funny especially with the computer part (Benson's went red here, but veins popped out of his head). The howling communication was rather weird and a little annoying as well as dragging. What I meant that is the bell ringing took 30 seconds (and random stuffs appear) and it went out for a little too long. But at least it had a funny ending quote "let's never invite them to the movies again" Overall, a better than expected episode but still crappy storyline. Regular Show isn't losing its charm but needs to d at least better so that there will not be any complaints (I'm sick and tired of people worrying about this show's formula :<)) 8.5/10moreless
