Fans of the surreal, hilarious, and ridiculous Cartoon Network series Regular Show rejoice, as the show has been renewed for a sixth season by Cartoon Network. The network announced yesterday that it was renewing J.Q. Quintel’s wonderfully subversive series, along with other fan favorite hits like Adventure Time, Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, and Steven Universe.
To celebrate, we’re taking a look at five of the best episodes of the series, which is very tough because there isn’t a bad episode in the lot. Nevertheless, here are our five favorites that we never tire of, no matter how many times we see them.
Do Me A Solid
This is a divisive episode among fans, mainly because Rigby is kind of an irredeemable jerk in it, but as a takedown of “bro speak,” it’s one of the most incisive and incendiary episodes of the series, proving that it’s not afraid to take down a portion of its target audience.
Mordecai and the Rigbys
Arguably the best episode of the first season, this episode perfectly encapsulates the extreme lengths that guys will go to in order to impress a girl. This really made Mordecai the most endearing character in perhaps the entire series.
Fans of Muscleman (and really who isn’t) can find more to love in this episode than any other. Too often, minor characters like him are best used in small doses, but this episode proved that one joke actually could be funny for an entire episode.
An absolute marvel of meta-comedy, this episode goes, quite literally, to the ends of the earth to make a joke. This is another episode with a great commentary about how trying to come off as cool is ultimately pointless and futile, and may even get you sentenced to death in galactic court.
Over the Top
Perhaps the most underused of the minor characters, the Mark Hamill-voiced Skips finally gets a chance to shine in this episode that is a perfect parody of 80s action movie cliches.
