Intergalactic warrior Star Butterfly arrives on Earth to live with the Diaz family. She continues to battle villains throughout the universe and high school, mainly to protect her extremely powerful wand, an object that still confuses her.
There have been many scenes that resemble movies like Star Wars. In 'The Button', Benson hallucinates himself stuck on the railings underneath Cloud City, like 'The Empire Strikes Back', and in 'VIP Members Only' Mordecai, Rigby, Mitch and Fives fall into a pit with skeletons and fight a monster, a lot like the Rancor Pit in 'Return of the Jedi'. Skips is voiced by Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker. See more »
As a huge animation fan, I heard much about Regular Show, mostly positive but with some negatives too. I am so glad that I gave it a chance because in my opinion Regular Show is one of the funnier and better recent shows on Cartoon Network alongside Adventure Time and Chowder. In fact the only one airing now that I hate and am at a wonder why it's still airing is Johnny Test.
Is Regular Show as good as Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack and Courage the Cowardly Dog? No, not quite. But that is not an excuse for me to not like it. The animation is clean and smooth with some quite appealing colouring, and the music is great with the main theme one of the catchiest and coolest main themes of any Cartoon Network show in recent years.
The writing is wonderfully creative, very witty and very funny. The story lines are interesting and a lot of fun, true some of them are on the weird side(eg. the episode with Tim Curry voicing a hot dog leader) but that worked in the show's favour in alternative to against it. The characters have great personalities, are endearing and exude a great chemistry. The voice acting is consistently good, with some funny and dynamic work from both promising and prolific voice actors.
Overall, I like it very much, it was much better than I thought. 9/10 Bethany Cox
