* mysticfire: All right, I removed my earlier entry on ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' in favor of Mordecai's behavior throughout ''Rigby's Graduation Day Special''. Overall, I think this is honestly one of the best episodes of the series, but I would be remiss if I didn't publicly register my frustration with Mordecai. I had not really been liking Mordecai ever since the [[YourCheatingHeart ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' fiasco]], and this episode just cemented my contempt for his character in the later seasons. This episode serves as the conclusion of Rigby's two-seasons-long effort to graduate high school, and he is chosen to give the commencement address, which will be filmed for a TV show. Meanwhile, the park staff is getting ready to throw Rigby a party, and Mordecai just generally acts mopey and mouthy when the others ask him what Rigby likes. Mordecai even claims that [[Jerkass graduating high school is the least a person can do]] and asks why it is so special, to which Hi Five Ghost [[LampshadeHanging registers his disbelief that he has to explain to Mordecai what an accomplishment this is for Rigby.]] Mordecai is then tasked with taking Skips' van to get a special soda for Rigby, which is out of season and thus he needs to drive out to the manufacturer. This sets up a heartwarming scene, but then Mordecai whines the whole time. Rigby is getting nervous about writing his speech and calls to ask Mordecai for help, and the latter snaps and hangs up on him. Rigby calls later to ask for help again, while Mordecai is on the way home with the surprise, and what does Mordecai do? [[spoiler: He throws the soda out the window.]] I don't care that Mordecai [[spoiler: actually did go back and get the soda]], because that is ruined for me by the fact that 1) Mordecai wasn't even in the arena during the ceremony: he instead was pouting next to the van and didn't even consider going inside until Rigby started floundering on his speech; and 2) he flatly admits to Rigby that it's hard to see him doing so well because that makes [[ItsAllAboutMe Mordecai feel worse about himself.]] On some level I can understand Mordecai's feelings, but Mordecai has not actively tried to improve his life and seems to want Rigby around so he can feel superior to someone. Rigby has spent so much time improving his life and Mordecai [[ItsAllAboutMe still made it all about him.]] I don't know why [[EasilyForgiven Rigby wasn't mad at Mordecai for at least several episodes after this,]] giving that the latter's apology didn't feel especially genuine to me. Also, aside from Rigby's brief frustration with him, [[KarmaHoudini Mordecai does not receive any appropriate calling out for his extremely selfish behavior.]]

* mysticfire: All right, I'm gonna say it. There have been some truly awful moments on the show, but most of them I've kinda been okay with because they were confined to that one episode and haven't really dragged out over the course of an entire story arc. But my vote has got to go to ''Merry Christmas Mordecai.'' I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting, and the impending [[LoveTriangle CJ/Mordecai/Margaret]] drama was handled relatively well...until the last minute or so of the episode. To reiterate, in the first part of the episode we are treated to Mordecai "pulling several Mordecais" when he learns from Eileen that Margaret will be at her party. Does Mordecai act cool about it and not make the whole thing about him and his drama because Eileen obviously worked hard to throw this party? Nah, that's assuming too much of him! [[ItsAllAboutMe He hyperventilates and runs away before Eileen can tell him something else important.]] The episode then shows Mordecai being a total wuss, and [[OnlySaneMan Rigby rightly calling him out for it.]] Then, at the party, Mordecai tells CJ that she is the one he likes now, which makes her very happy. As soon as CJ leaves to use the restroom, Mordecai talks to Margaret, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy who says she is glad he is happy with CJ.]] This would have been the best way to end the episode, in my opinion. But then, for no real reason, [[spoiler: Mordecai and Margaret kiss in full view of CJ.]] And to top it off, [[spoiler: Eileen finally tells Mordecai what she was trying to say the whole time, that Margaret is her new roommate and will be finishing the semester in town. CJ understandably drives away pissed, and the episode ends with her leaving.]] What a way to slap all of your viewers in the face! Not only was it somewhat [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness out of character]] for [[spoiler: Mordecai to kiss Margaret as soon as CJ turned her back,]] but now we are left with this cliffhanger that leaves little hope for Mordecai to be redeemed in my eyes. It doesn't matter which girl Mordecai chooses; the dethroning moment comes from this both being incredibly out of character for Mordecai and something of a BigLippedAlligatorMoment just for the sake for a LoveTriangle. About the only thing that redeemed this episode was [[spoiler: Rigby's Christmas present to Eileen and him subsequently pecking her on the cheek, albeit that took a bit of prompting from Mordecai.]] Let's just hope whatever follows this isn't as god-awful as this train wreck of an episode.


Added DiffLines:

*mysticfire: All right, I removed my earlier entry on ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' for this one, and it has to do with everything that Mordecai does in the episode ''Rigby's Graduation Day Special''. Overall, I think this is honestly one of the best episodes of the series, but I would be remiss if I didn't publicly register my frustration with Mordecai. If anyone saw my earlier entry that I removed in favor of this, I had not really been liking [[YourCheatingHeart Mordecai]] ever since the ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' fiasco, but one consolation was that Rigby was actually getting his life together. This is the culmination of Rigby's two-seasons-long effort to graduate high school, and he is chosen to give the commencement address, which will be filmed for a TV show. Meanwhile, the park staff is getting ready to throw Rigby a party, and Mordecai just generally acts mopey and mouthy when the others ask him what Rigby likes. Mordecai even claims that [[Jerkass graduating high school is the least a person can do]] and asks why it is so special, to which Hi Five Ghost [[LampshadeHanging registers his disbelief that he has to explain to Mordecai what an accomplishment this is for Rigby.]] Mordecai is then tasked with taking Skips' van to get a special soda for Rigby, which is out of season and thus he needs to drive out to the manufacturer. This sets up a heartwarming scene, but then Mordecai whines the whole time. Rigby is getting nervous about writing his speech and calls to ask Mordecai for help, and the latter snaps and hangs up on him. Rigby calls later to ask for help again, while Mordecai is on the way home with the surprise, and what does Mordecai do? [[MoralEventHorizon He throws the soda out the window.]] I don't care that Mordecai [[spoiler: actually did go back and get the soda, because]] that is ruined for me by the fact that 1) Mordecai wasn't even in the arena and was pouting next to the van and didn't even consider going inside until Rigby started floundering on his speech and 2) he flatly admits to Rigby that it's hard to see him doing so well because that makes [[ItsAllAboutMe Mordecai feel worse about himself.]] On some level I can understand Mordecai's feelings, but Mordecai has not actively tried to improve his life and seems to want Rigby around so he can feel superior to someone. Rigby has spent so much time improving his life and Mordecai [[ItsAllAboutMe still made it all about him.]] I don't know why [[EasilyForgiven Rigby wasn't mad at Mordecai for at least several episodes after this,]] giving that the latter's apology didn't feel especially genuine to me.

* [=FromtheWordsofBR=]: You thought "Do or Diaper"'s CruelTwistEnding ending was bad? "Return of Mordecai and the Rigbys"'s ending is even worse. The gang have destroyed all their instruments after a huge fight, causing them to have nothing to play with for the "Battle of the Bands" concert (which they signed up to do so to win an air conditioner thanks to the higher temperatures in the park). So what do they do? They wind up using [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome a capella "instruments"]] that later somehow appear as holographic forms, and they blow everybody away with their performance. If the episode had just ended right there with the guys winning, getting cheered and then having a brief experience with the air conditioner, this would've been inside my top 5 list of favorite ''Regular Show'' episodes, but instead, the episode decides to [[spoiler:pull off a very CruelTwistEnding and reveal that Mordecai [[AllJustADream only hallucinated that]], and they actually didn't win--they suffered from severe heatstroke and wound up being sent to the hospital.]] Not even [[spoiler:the revelation that the hospital room they are in has free A/C]] was enough to save this drastically bad ending.

* dannylightninglightner: "Marvolo the Wizard" wasn't really a ''bad'' episode (and definitely wasn't without its very funny moments,) but the episode's treatment of Pops ebbed into DudeNotFunny territory a few times. As Pops is mostly portrayed as a really timid and easily-frightened character, normally it's funny to see him over-react to things. But because this episode was entirely framed from his point of view, seeing him run around in a complete panic was legitimately sad to watch, especially with the jerk fairgoers taunting him. And Benson, holding the IdiotBall, doesn't actually ''explain'' to Pops what's going on; [[KickTheDog he just yells at him]], making the situation worse. Seeing Benson treat Pops like this was pretty jarring, as Pops is usually something of a MoralityPet to Benson. There's also the scene in which Pops blacks out from accidentally running into a wall; when he comes to, Skips doesn't really seem too concerned, he just tells him to slay the dragon and that this will fix everything. Pops eventually defeats the dragon, and he's overjoyed- [[TheChewToy but the episode won't allow him to celebrate his victory for very long, because immediately afterward, he's knocked out AGAIN.]] The ending scene somewhat implies that Marvolo's appearances in the episode may have been due to Pops hallucinating from getting smacked on the head. Pops has always been something of a comical yet pitiable ButtMonkey ever since the show's inception, but this episode went a little too far with it and pushed him into straight-up [[TheWoobie woobie]] territory.
