Suuuuuuugar
Last winter I made a list of my top 6 episodes of Regular Show season 1. Now that season 2 has ended, I figure it’s time to do it again. Note that a top 6 for season 1 wasn’t that difficult because there are only twelve episodes.

Season 2 on the other hand has 28. So I’ve had to consider this a bit more. But I think I’ve worked everything out as best as I’m able.

--also, I ranked Ello Gov’nor really high on my last list, but come to find out it was actually the first episode of Season 2. But we’ll pretend that’s not the case >>;


6. It’s Time

While Regular Show has gotten better about not adhering to a certain formula since Season 1 ended, one thing that does remain is that Rigby is usually the one to mess things up. If not that, then he’s usually at least the one in the wrong. It’s Time, however, is the first (and maybe only?) episode where everything that goes wrong is because of Mordecai’s lack of judgment. For that, it’s kind of refreshing. Plus I love the Hammer-style film trailer.


5. But I Have a Receipt

Do you know what I love? Game culture parody episodes. Yes, it might be cliché’ in American cartoons at this point, but at least they’re going with tabletop games instead of MMORPGs.


4. Grave Sights

Do you know what else I love? Evil Dead/Army of Darkness/horror/80’s movie parodies. There are also nods to less known film icons like Suspirio, and a sort of bait & switch continuity nod with the thing that triggers the conflict (that Rigby and scary movies don’t mix) having been introduced in an earlier episode (Ello Gov’nor, in fact) and not being explicitly restated here. Good job.


3. This is My Jam

It's Summertime and you know what that means
Gonna head down to the beach and do some beach-y things
It's Summertime, it feels just right
Gonna gather all my friends and we'll party through the night

It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ it's lovin’ in the Summertime
It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ my baby, why can't you be mine?

It's Summertime and I just can't wait
Gonna call you on the phone, gonna take you on a date
It's Summertime and I hope you like steak
Gonna take you to a restaurant, gonna eat enough till late

It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ it's lovin’ in the Summertime
It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ my baby, why can't you be mine?

It's Summertime and when dinner's done
Gonna take you to the club, gonna dance and have some fun
It's Summertime and when the end is near
Gonna hold you very close, whisper "let's get out of here"

It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ it's lovin’ in the Summertime
It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ my baby, why can't you be mine?

It's Summertime and I just can't wait
Gonna call you on the phone, gonna take you on a date
It's Summertime and I hope you like steak
Gonna take you to a restaurant, gonna eat enough till late

It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ it's lovin’ in the Summertime
It's Summertime luh-uh-lovin’ my baby, why can't you be mine?



2. A Bunch of Baby Ducks

All of the cute gifs.

I mean, uh. What can I say, this just gets everything Regular Show does down perfectly. It’s hilarious, it’s cute, it gets weird, and there’s not an explanation offered for a single bit of it.


1. Brain Eraser

Annnnnd yeeeeeet. Brain Eraser has to be my absolute favorite episode of the season. For starters, Quintel was amazed that it got past censors, and he suspected that it would only air once (this has not been the case). We’re talking Animaniacs “finger prints” levels of Getting Crap Past the Radar here. And more than one instance of it, from a surprisingly vivid description of a naked person to a heavily implied erection. AND this is the episode that brought us something just as wonderful as the Summertime Lovin’ song. Yes, I’m talking about Planet Starlight Chasers Excellent (or is it Planet Chasers Starlight Excellent?). All day, every day. . .


Honorable mentions:

Really Real Wrestling

Because it contains what might be my favorite line in the series so far.

Mordecai: “Dude, Benson would have snapped his crank if we just up and left work! You’ve got to be responsible sometimes.”

Rigby: (deadpan) “And that’s why we don’t have tickets for wrestling. Because all you can think about is Benson’s crank.”


Muscle Woman

I. . . I just like Mordecai being all cute and sensitive, okay >>;

I also wanted to include things like the Doug episode :<

Overall season 2 was pretty great. There are only a handful that I don't really care for.
