Regular Show - Season 2 ^NEW^
The second season of American animated television series Regular Show, created by J. G. Quintel, originally aired on Cartoon Network in the United States. Quintel created the series' pilot using characters from his comedy shorts for the canceled anthology series The Cartoonstitute. He developed Regular Show from his own experiences in college. Simultaneously, several of the show's main characters originated from his animated shorts 2 in the AM PM and The Naïve Man from Lolliland. Following its first season's success, Regular Show was renewed for a second season in 2009, ahead of its premiere. The season ran from November 29, 2010 to August 1, 2011, and was produced by Cartoon Network Studios.
Regular Show - Season 2
Regular Show's second season was storyboarded and written by Quintel, Sean Szeles, Shion Takeuchi, Benton Connor, Calvin Wong, Paul Scarlata, Kat Morris, Mike Roth, John Infantino, Minty Lewis, Henry Yu, and Dennis Messmer. For this season, the writers were Quintel, Roth, Infantino, Michele Cavin, and Matt Price, who is also the story editor.
Many of the characters are loosely based on those developed for Quintel's student films at California Institute of the Arts: The Naive Man From Lolliland and 2 in the AM PM. Quintel pitched Regular Show for Cartoon Network's Cartoonstitute project, in which the network allowed artists to create pilots with no notes to be optioned as a show possibly. After being green-lit, Quintel recruited several indie comic book artists to compose the show's staff, as their style matched close to what he desired for the series. The season was storyboarded and written by Quintel, Sean Szeles, Shion Takeuchi, Benton Connor, Calvin Wong, Paul Scarlata, Kat Morris, Mike Roth, John Infantino, Minty Lewis, Henry Yu, and Dennis Messmer. For this season, the writers were Quintel, Roth, Infantino, Michele Cavin, and Matt Price, who is also the story editor while being produced by Cartoon Network Studios.
The second season of Regular Show was produced between August 2010 to November 2010. It utilizes double entendres and mild language; Quintel stated that, although the network wanted to step up from the more child-oriented fare, some restrictions came with this switch.
Warner Home Video released multiple DVDs, consisting of region 1 formats.Slack Pack, The Best DVD in the World *At this Moment in Time, Party Pack, Fright Pack, Mordecai & Margaret Pack and Rigby Pack were created for Region 1 markets containing episodes from the second season.

The season premiere, "Ello Gov'nor", aired on November 29, 2010, while the season finale, "Karaoke Video", aired on August 1, 2011, with a total of 28 episodes aired this season.

Regular Show is an American cartoon that was made by Cartoon Network. It was censored in most countries due to the show having crude language and sexual innuendo not generally seen in other Cartoon Network shows. Cartoon Network Australia, Cartoon Network UK and Cartoon Network Turkey censored the show, due to them wanting to make it more family friendly and more accessible to small children.
Art Shift: It's quite noticeable what the new scenes are, as they are drawn in the cleaner style of the TV show compared to the looser style of the pilot.
Call-Forward: Margaret has a non-speaking cameo during the beginning of the extended cut, and this episode takes place before "Caffeinated Concert Tickets", her actual first appearance.
Calling Your Attacks: Mordecai announces to Rigby that he will throw rock before the 101th round of Rock, Paper, Scissors so that Rigby can win the game and break the tie.
Early-Installment Weirdness: Being that this was originally the pilot episode, there were quite a few differences: The animation is a lot more bouncy and cartoons. Using a lot more squash and stretch and smears than the final show does.
Rigby compared to how he is normally was less hyperactive and was more sulky and moody. He also in the original cut had two teeth that got replaced with full teeth in the remake. According to the DVD Comentary, JG changed it because it made him look like a little kid.
Muscle Man and High Five Ghost only made a small cameo in the original pilot and didn't have any lines. However, new scenes with them were added in the recut.
Remains of the original idea of the show taking place at human zoo are shown in some of the pilot backgrounds.
During the climax, Benson of all people is the one to know what to do to stop the current disaster, when usually it's Skips who knows it.
At the end of the episode, Benson tells Pops to "come with him" as if Benson was Pops' boss and not the other way around.
Easily Impressed: Pops is a bit too absorbed in Mordecai and Rigby's Rock, Paper, Scissors match.
Eating the Eye Candy: In the extended cut, Muscle Man stops mowing the lawn to check out Margaret's tail feathers.
Establishing Character Moment: Characters get a few, fitting the role of a pilot episode: Rigby: The first thing he does upon arriving at the park is make fun of the size of Pops' head, establishing him as a Jerkass. His first lines are a reluctance to wake up to work on his first day, as he sleeps in a pile of underwear and clothes (also somehow accumulated in one day despite his not wearing clothes), setting him up as a slacker and dirty.
Mordecai: Quick to get Rigby to stop making fun of Pops, and ready to get to work with his morning alarm, Mordecai's set up as more responsible to Rigby, though his second set of lines establish he's well aware of Rigby's faults and tolerates it to a point.
The end of the episode establishes that Mordecai and Rigby as a pair don't really learn from their mistakes easily and will readily repeat them.
Pops: Greets Mordecai and Rigby at the entrance and gives them lollipops he keeps in his shirt, showing him to be sweet but a bit eccentric.
Benson: Sharply calls out Rigby for standing on the table while eating, setting him up as a by the book authority figure who can get loud quickly.
Muscle Man: His second line is a "My Mom" joke, setting up his weird sense of humor.
High Five Ghost: Only exists to back up Muscle Man.
Skips: Jumps into action with strength and experience, putting his capability at the forefront of his character.
I Let You Win: Mordecai lets Rigby win the 101st round of Rock, Paper, Scissors to break the tie and stop the black hole.
Not Hyperbole: Benson warns Mordecai and Rigby not to play Rock, Paper, Scissors as it's an "evil" game, though they ignore his warning. Later it turns out to actually be an evil game as their 100th tie summons a black hole to eat the chair they were competing over.
Mundane Object Amazement: Mordecai and Rigby decide that the chair Pops wanted to throw out is somehow the coolest chair ever even after sitting in it and finding it uncomfortable, to the point where Mordecai and Rigby compete in a 101 round-long game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to win it.
Origins Episode: Depicts Mordecai and Rigby's first day on the job, but since this episode was released in the middle of season 2, this episode becomes this trope.
Mundane Made Awesome: A crowd gathers to watch Mordecai and Rigby's epic Rock, Paper, Scissors match.
Mutual Disadvantage: Mordecai and Rigby somehow tie in Rock, Paper, Scissors 100 times.
Pilot: Was created by series creator J.G. Quintel to pitch the show to Cartoon Network, and was supposed to be aired as part of the anthology series that never came to be, The Cartoonstitute. It aired as part of Season 2 with some extra scenes.
Re-Cut: Of the pilot.
Serious Business: Rock, Paper, Scissors. It's an evil game with dire consequences.
During an employees-night out at McHooligans, Skips shows off his strength by arm-wrestling everyone. When he gets to Rigby, everyone is shocked when Rigby beats Skips. Ego bruised, Skips demands that he and Rigby have a rematch. Skips loses again. He proceeds to so slightly crazy, and even destroys Mordecai and Rigby's room, searching for "the trick" to Rigby's power. Mordecai reveals that Rigby is pranking Skips, and tells him about a device called the Playco Armbboy, which gives the user superhuman arm strength. Skips storms to McHooligans and tells Rigby he wants another rematch. This time, he rips the Armboy off of Rigby and forces Rigby to arm-wrestle for real. The result kills Rigby, and Skips must now defeat Death in an arm-wrestling contest to win Rigby's soul back.
With the exclusion of Skips, the team goes out to have drinks, however, Mordecai then realizes he forgot his ticket. He walks into his room with Skips' interrogating Rigby's personal items. Skips is apparently furious which makes Mordecai tell him that Rigby was just pranking him. The next scene shows all of the staff drinking and having fun, until Skips challanges Rigby to another fight, but he ends up revealing his PlayCo Armboy and lifts him up, and smashes him on the table, killing him.
He may have saved Freeland in the first season, but Black Lightning (Cress Williams) is in for a whole new world of pain when Jordan Calloway returns as DC villain Painkiller in the show's sophomore season. Guest starring as Khalil Payne in Season 1, Calloway's promotion to series regular was revealed by showrunner/executive producer Salim Akil during the Black Lightning San Diego Comic-Con 2018 panel today. This is definitely a welcome return by fans who wanted to see more of Painkiller in the DC show.
Black Lightning showrunner Salim Akil released a statement to announce that Jordan Calloway was being upped to a series regular in Season 2 at Comic-Con. Akil, like fans of the show, is extremely excited to see what Calloway is going to bring to the Painkiller role now that he's going to have some time to stretch out. Akil notes that the evolution to Painkiller is going to be something awesome to see in Black Lightning Season 2. He had this to say. 041b061a72
