They appear to be set on following the same pattern that Adventure Time did for its' DVD releases. Two compilation DVDs, then a season set (hopefully a set that includes both seasons one and two (like Shout! Factory's first Angry Beavers set), as season one could fit on a single disc). I'm sure that soon after the release of this compilation we'll get some sort of announcement concerning a more complete release.

This show...how do I explain this show.
Its a feel good, goofy, and slightly stupid show about 2 friends who happen to be a blue jay and raccoon. They get a job at a park and have odd jobs to do around it every day. They are lazy and act like your average 20 year olds. Getting in constant trouble and finding themselves caught up in CRAZY situations every episode.
I love this show, the hidden adult jokes and down right stupid humor are right up my ally.
The only complaint I have, they didn't do a season, but just a bunch of random episodes on this DVD. Still 5 stars because the show itself makes up for it :)
Since "Regular Show: The Slack Pack" has been released, the animated television series has gone on to win its first Emmy, debuted its first half hour special, and introduced a new character named Thomas, an intern at the park, in its 4th (and currently ongoing) season. While it was glorious that "Regular Show" finally had its first DVD release under its belt, the release was not without its issues. "Regular Show: The Best DVD in the World (At This Moment in Time)" is at least a step in the right direction.
One of the biggest questions every fan of the show had who picked up "The Slack Pack" was what was going on with the episode listing? The first season is only 12 episodes, which is how many episodes are on "The Slack Pack," but the DVD is a mixture of episodes from seasons one and two. "The Best DVD in the World" is just 16 episodes from season 3. The down side is that while great episodes such as "More Smarter," "Trash Boat," and "Eggscellent" are included on the disc, so many are left unreleased from not only previous seasons but also season 3. The biggest crime is leaving off the season 3 episode "The Best VHS in the World," which should have been a must next to "The Best Burger in the World." But epic episodes like "Caffeinated Concert Tickets," "Free Cake," and "Rigby's Body," from season 1, "High Score," "But I Have a Receipt," and "Skunked" from season 2, and "Stick Hockey" and "Fortune Cookie" from season 3 all still remain on the shelf.
The DVD art from "The Slack Pack" was hideous, but the artwork on "The Best DVD in the World" at least looks like it was pulled directly from the show. While all of the specs on "The Best DVD in the World" are exactly the same as they were on "The Slack Pack," the video transfer looks better on "The Best DVD in the World." Maybe it's because of the episodes chosen and the high contrast of color from episode to episode, but the show looks great this time around. Those glitches that plagued certain episodes on "The Slack Pack" are thankfully nonexistent.
The Rah-Ha Ringtone special feature on "The Slack Pack" was at least entertaining despite being incredibly short. All you have this time around are some "Employee Profiles." It's all pretty basic stuff surrounding all of the main characters. The most interesting bit of information lies in Benson's profile where it lists him as a former drummer for rock icon Hair to the Throne. That wasn't revealed until the episode "150-Piece Kit" from season 4, so this DVD is obviously from The Night Owl's collection in the futuristic year of 4224.
It's still a travesty that a soundtrack featuring either completely original music or the actual copyrighted music used in the show has not been released. Actual songs used in this DVD alone include Filter's "Hey Man, Nice Shot," Mountain's "Mississippi Queen," The Beach Boys "I Get Around," Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For a Hero," and Lakme's "The Flower Duet." The original music is just as 80's inspired as the show is and is usually very synth heavy and utilized during montages. Movie, TV, and video game references include "Rushmore," "Weekend at Bernie's," "The Terminator," "Judge Dredd," "Back to the Future," "Dragonball Z," "Tron," "Mortal Kombat," the Power Glove, and "Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade."
"Regular Show: The Best DVD in the World (At This Moment in Time)" is a bit of an upgrade from "Regular Show: The Slack Pack" and if it's following the same release schedule as "Adventure Time," then a full season release (that hopefully combines seasons 1 and 2) is right around the corner. The artwork on the DVD alone is a huge improvement and the show looks great for a standard DVD release, but its content leaves you wanting much more. But until a full season of "Regular Show" sees the light of day, this and "The Slack Pack" are all fans have to enjoy in the meantime.
So slap on your mentoring harness and Maximum Glove, never forget the power of poetry, go camping in the sunshiiiiiine, and be sure to take the time to taste the Himalayas because "Regular Show: The Best DVD in the World (At This Moment in Time)" is just under three hours of more smarter entertainment. Tsk tsk! And don't get b-b-b-busted misusing a hoooooooose while changing your name to two completely random words.

Get ready to go "OOOOHHHHHH!" because it's time for the new "Regular Show" DVD featuring 16 episodes from the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network series such as "The Best Burger in the World" (where our two leads Mordecai and Rigby try to get a taste of a burger with Himalayan ketchup), "Trash Boat" (where Rigby tries to go by a strange new name), "Butt Dial" (where Mordecai leaves an accidental message on his girlfriend Margaret's phone), and "Eggcellent" (where the guys try to win a hat by eating an enormous omelet).
Special feature on this DVD is called "Employee Profiles" which it's more of a character bio feature like on the "Adventure Time" and "Amazing World of Gumball" releases.
It may say that it's "The Best DVD in the World (At This Moment in Time)", I can think of better DVDs than that, however. You'd probably think a better DVD release would be a complete season set for "Regular Show" and who knows ? It could be sometime soon. But for now, look for all new episodes on Cartoon Network.
Mordecai & Rigby a.k.a. TrashBoat a.k.a. Rigbone are COOLEST anthropomorphic slackers in the PARK! And You know I appreciate THAT! Creator J.G.Quintel voices Mordecai a 6 ft talking bluejay who can't fly or play the guitar, along side his friends: Pops, Skips, Muscle Man, High-Five Ghost and their boss Benson and Rigby his best friend they occasionally learn a life lesson or two like: Snails are BAD. The first DvD was just released with a random selection of 12 eps but this New DvD includes a whopping 16 11 minute eps: Slam Dunk, Cool Bikes, the best burger in the world, more smarter, rap it up weekend at Benson's, camping can be cool, trash boat, butt dial, think positive video being wizards, skips vs technology, eggscellent, muscle mentor, Fists of Justice, trucker Hall of Fame.
