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 and the first season comes this second full season set of the show, this time covering all the episodes in Season 2, 28 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 1 and 2 are also available as a Blu-ray edition combined together. Highlights of this season include Go Viral where the boys try to make a viral video but get in trouble with the matron of the internet, Ello Gov'nor where Rigby rents an English horror film and gets scared and Brain Eraser when Mordecai needs to erase a disturbing image of Pops from his memory.

     The show is now in its fifth season on television and one presumes that more season sets will be forthcoming.

     Funny Stuff.

     The menu includes music.

Sam Sings Mystery Karaoke (2:00)

     Sam (whoever he is) records a karaoke song. This is silent vision of him doing it.

Commentaries - All 28 episodes

     Commentaries are included for all 28 episodes mostly featuring the creator plus a member of the technical crew. Some have multiple commentaries available. 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 second season of Regular Show.

    The video quality is good.

    The audio quality is good.

    The extras are quite good.
