Plot Synopsis

     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.

     Funny Stuff.

Menu

     The menu includes music.

Unaired Regular Show Pilot (7:40)

     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.

Animatic of Unaired Pilot (7:16)

     Storyboard style version of the pilot episode. Really keen animation fans only.

Original Pencil Tests for Saerom (0:37)

     Hand drawn tests for a particular character.

Animatic for 'The Power' (10:48)

     Storyboard style version of one episode.

CG Test for Hodgepodge Monster (0:05)

     Short test animation.

2010 Comic Con Teaser Trailer (2:29)

     Trailer used to promote the show before release.

The Naive Man from Lolliland - Student Short (3:29)

     A real treat for fans is this student film by the creator which includes a character very similar to Pops.

Party Tonight Music Video (2:07)

     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 JG Quintel (5:07)

     Interview with creator and tour of the show's office.

JG Pitches 'The Power' (15:53)

     The creator walks through the entire storyboards of the first episode as if he was pitching it.

Original Regular Show Commercials (0:49)

     2 advertisements.

Commentaries - All 12 episodes

     Commentaries are included for all 12 episodes mostly featuring the creator plus a member of the technical crew. Worthwhile for fans.

R4 vs R1

NOTE: To view non-R4 releases, your equipment needs to be multi-zone compatible and usually also NTSC compatible.

    The Region 1 release is basically the same. Buy local.

Summary

    The full first season of Regular Show.

    The video quality is good.

    The audio quality is good.

    The extras are extensive.
