Netflix Movie Monday

Yeah, it's Tuesday again, but life gets busy.  I would just change this to Netflix Movie Tuesday but then I would probably end up posting this on Wednesdays,  But alas, summer is almost here, so I'll have more free time (and hopefully more time to find good stuff).

I've started getting into Netflix shows because we haven't had cable in a long time.  From time-to-time, we debate getting it again but life gets too expensive.  The wife misses TLC (one reason why I don't want to get cable again) and I miss my cable shows such as Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Workaholics and the list goes on.

Recently, a ton of Cartoon Network shows were put on Netflix.  They have my classic favorite cartoons such as Cow and Chicken and Dexter's Labratory but also a lot of shows I've never heard of.  The Regular Show looks a little bit interesting and after a few weeks, I went through the first season (it sounds impressive but it's really only a little bit over two hours). 

The Regular Show is about a blue jay (Mordecai) and a racoon (Rigsby) who work at a park as groundskeepers.   They have a pretty boring job but are constantly finding new, over-the-top adventures to undertake such as getting involved with a unicorn gang, getting attacked by talking hot dogs, etc., which gets their boss, Benson, pretty ticked off and they are almost fired on a daily basis.  

Each episode is only 12 minutes so if you watched an entire one and hated it, hey, it's only 12 minutes.  One of my favorite things about the show is the completely random characters. 

If Rigsby is Robin, Mordecai is Batman.  The more mature one of the duo but still likes to have his fun
Rigsby.  He's like an annoying teenager.  No shame, immature and out-of-control.
The bossman, Benson.  Yes, he's a gumball machine
High Five Ghost and Muscle Man.  They are Mordecai's and Rigsby's rival groundskeepers
Skips.  He's a smart meathead (oxymoron) who can only get around by skipping.  His voice is done by Mark Hamill.
Pops.  I love this guy
