I've been finally watching all of Regular Show in order and I've made it to the end of season 6. It's really neat how much the characters have evolved over the run of the show, but oh god CJ+Mordecai keeps on giving me some bad flashbacks to a really bad relationship I had a while ago.

On the plus side, S6E28 actually finally addresses some of that, and it's clear that the writers were being deliberate and careful about a touchy subject.

Okay no they ended up like... oversimplifying it past the point of therapeutic benefit and they've just completely ignored the fact that CJ was a toxic/borderline person, and that Mordecai is just like... way too much of an appeaser.

And it was Mordecai who finally decided to call it off with her but then in season 7 they're portraying it as Mordecai was dumped by her?

maybe I'm just completely misunderstanding stuff or reading too much into things, I dunno

I think my favorite running gag is how people get drunk off chicken wings

Like they weren’t allowed to show alcohol at all (because cartoon network) but that didn’t stop them from comedic intoxication plots

@fluffy I don'y remember CJ being very toxic, tho I also don't remember many episodes with her. I should watch Regular Show again, what do you think of Close Enough?

@person I've only seen the first episode of it, was going to wait until I finished Regular Show to watch more

CJ had some really bad tendencies. She wasn't in that many episodes but I see just how much everyone's always tiptoeing around her and trying to appease her because they're *afraid* of her; when she gets pissed she gets incredibly destructive and hurts people.

@fluffy Well if my friend was a cloud that turns into a storm... I wouldn't have such a friend now that I think about it. I didn't like Close Enough very much, it's made for adult Americans and I'm neither of those.

@fluffy I've been doing this recently too but you're further along than me. I'm in the middle of S4 right now.

@vikxin it’s pretty interesting how the show develops over time, but still keeps its roots as a “mundane things turn into ridiculous epic adventures“ weirdness. And yet it’s the plot threads which are grounded in reality which have the most impact. Probably by contrast.

It’sa weird show and I love it.
