    Regular Show

    This needs a thread.



    JG Quintel (of Flapjack and Adventure Time fame)'s animated pilot for the Cartoonstitute project (which you can watch above) was recently picked up for a series commitment by Cartoon Network. The show premiered yesterday, and if the first episode is any indication, this could be awesome.

    too much talking, too much DUDE, and the "wacky conceptual characters in an average setting" isn't doing anything for me

    Well... I love this show.

    The newest episodes really make me laugh.

    I used to like this show, but I grew to hate it once I realized the only characters I liked were Mordecai and Skips. Characters like Benson, Muscle Man, and even Rigby get annoying fast, and it's one of those shows where the people making it think that the characters yelling and screaming is funny when it's not, it's just obnoxious. The Amazing World of Gumball is another recent example of these type of shows.

    I like the show, but I'm still amazed that it airs during the day. It looks and feels so much more like an Adult Swim show. I have to wonder how many kids out there even get half the stuff that goes on.

    Exactly.. I guess those righteous parental watchdog groups hate the show b/c of the violence, innuendo, and suggestive language.

    Iv been watching this show since day one and Iv always wanted to make a thread for it here but I figured no one here would like the show. That being said I really think the show is kinda being lazy now in season 3 they seem to just throw some wacky scenario at the vary end sometimes and it just feels wrong a good example being the episode Fortune Cookie. Because of this season 3 had some pretty bad episodes but It also had some great episodes like Eggselent or Cool Bikes.

    Been watching from day zero (originally saw the seven minute pilot on YouTube) such a fantastic show and for anyone who doesn't think so...



    ...I rest my case

    I discovered this show on vacation, while channel flipping. I haven't watched Cartoon Network in ages, but the character designs looked interesting. Watched the Death Kwan Do episode first. And then I've been watching a whole bunch of random YouTube episodes since then.

    What really works on this show is the dialogue. It's written almost like Seinfeld in that Mordecai and Rigby just argue back and forth for the entire episode. The whole "lazy slackers" aspect of it is kind of played out in general, but it works pretty well for this show. One of my favorite characters is Benson, mostly because his psychotic freakouts are hilarious, but also because he kinda has a point. Mordecai and Rigby are reeeeeally lazy, so they usually deserve the verbal beatdowns (to some degree). Skips is also a really great character. Pops can be hit-or-miss, although he's had some really memorable scenes (like the karaoke song and the rap battle).

    I hate Muscle Man, though. I kinda enjoy the "MY MOM" jokes (ironically, of course), but his voice is really grating to listen to.

    Favorite episode is Stick Hockey, at least from the episodes I've seen. It's so much fun. So much fun.

    The ringtone promo is funny too.

    I like the show but it isn't something I actively seek out to watch.

    I do like Regular Show and have watched the first few seasons. It's quite 'out there' which I like. In fact, I like this better than Adventure Time. That show tries too hard and so many hipsters like it.

    Quoted for the fucking truth! Anyway, I've seen dozens of episodes and have laughed and enjoyed most of them. But I don't have cable and it's not really the type of show i'm compelled to catch or find episodes for online.

    The same thing happens every episode. WHOA DUDE WE GOTTA SOMETHING NORMAL!! and it turns into WHOA DUDE WE JUST TURNED SOMETHING NORMAL INTO SOMETHING SPOOKY AND OUT THERE!! And then Skips comes in and saves the day over half the time. I like some episodes, but I hate it when shows follow formulas and never really shakes it up that much.

    Even though I like the show, I can get behind this criticism. Because, yeah, the large majority of episodes do seem to fall into this pattern. Sometimes they're out there from almost the get-go, but most of them are like that. They do a good job of tying the mundane stuff in with the surreal, however, to make up for it. They always seem to take one random plot element from the earlier part of the episode and put it into the resolution of the wacky stuff. The callbacks are a nice touch.

    I was a huge fan of the show when it started. And there are definitely some really goods ones there too, but this isn't really essential watching for me.

    I'd probably rate the pilot as my alright favourite.
    I'm probably more obsessed with Adventure Time but lets check out some cool people who made this show.

    If any of the shows staff somehow comes across this without them referenced, my bad.






    In no particular order;

    So Regular show won an Emmy for 'Outstanding short-format Animated Program' for their episode
    "Eggscellent" ( hmmm I might rewatch this episode right this second mid sentence.. )
    The episode was pretty decent as it beat Adventure Times classic 'Too Young'.




    - J. G. Quintel


    Other shows beat in the category was:

    Disney Channel
    Phineas And Ferb - The Doonkelberry

    Cartoon Network
    MAD - Kitchen Nightmare Before Christmas / How I Met Your Mummy

    Cartoon Network
    Adventure Time - Too Young

    Cartoon Network
    Robort Chicken - Fight Club Paradise



    I personally think that Adventure Time should of won, But Regular show beat them all
    Fair and square so congratulations to them! What do you think?

    Hahah one of the staff had this to say;

    Ah, this is a great show. IMO, the only good thing to grace CN in years.
