Regular Show is a Cartoon Network production which as with many Cartoon Network shows is being released in two different formats in Australia, being either full season collections or compilation discs of episodes. TrevorD previously reviewed one of the compilation discs, Slack Pack here and I reviewed another one here.
Trevor includes a good rundown on the show for novices. Following on from those two releases comes this first full season set of the show, this time covering all the episodes in Season 1, 12 in total. Unlike the previous compilations this release includes significantly more extras so these are probably the choice for dedicated fans of the show. Season 2 is also available.
The show is now in its Fifth Season on television and one presumes that more season sets will be forthcoming.
The video quality is very good.
The feature is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio which is the original aspect ratio.
The presentation is consistent with its television origins with decent clarity and good colour.
There are subtitles available in English for the Hearing Impaired.
The audio quality is good.
This disc contains an English soundtrack in Dolby Digital 2.0 . The dialogue is clear and easy to understand and the episodes are accompanied by a variety of songs and incidental music.

A real treat for fans is this pilot episode which supposedly has not been shown on TV. It involves Mordecai & Rigby fighting over a chair.
Storyboard style version of the pilot episode. Really keen animation fans only.
Hand drawn tests for a particular character.
Storyboard style version of one episode.
Short test animation.
Trailer used to promote the show before release.
A real treat for fans is this student film by the creator which includes a character very similar to Pops.
I just don't understand this at all. I can confirm it is a music video featuring people dressed up like characters from the show.
Interview with creator and tour of the show's office.
The creator walks through the entire storyboards of the first episode as if he was pitching it.
Commentaries are included for all 12 episodes mostly featuring the creator plus a member of the technical crew. Worthwhile for fans.
