Greetings Comrades! The Top 20 Countdown continues with Number 19 and this one isn't in my list of fandoms for the year 2014 but this one caught my attention. Here it is, Number 19: "The Real Thomas".
This episode of Regular Show is spotlighted on the character that we haven't got intel on and only been in the series for 1 season, and now for this episode, we got the full confirmation on everyone's favorite intern at the park, Thomas. Or should I say, Nicolai, his real name.
So remember that Russia wants a park that they didn't have so they have to take a park from US soil to them in the earlier parts of the episode? Yeah, that was until we found out that Russia wants to destroy it while the park along with Mordecai, Rigby, Benson, Skips, Pops, Muscle Man, and High Five Ghost is heading towards Russian territory. It's like they just pulled a gambit, they wanted a park, but instead, they want to destroy by missile testing. Which we cut over to the UN council, the US told Russia that they are breaking the Arms Treaty. But Russia got the US good by telling them that they are NOT attacking their soil, but take one piece of soil to them and them blow it up.
So why did this episode got the Number 19 spot? We got full on character development on Thomas that we haven't got in a single episode that includes from birth to present. Roger Craig Smith perfecting his Russian accent was a well done performance when we got the revelation of Thomas being a Russian spy. We're gonna miss Roger Craig Smith for playing Thomas, even though I already heard his voice in different shows like Deidara from Naruto Shippuden and Shinji Hirako from Bleach. Although I did not notice his other roles including the character of Belson from Clarence and Sonic the Hedgehog from Sonic Boom.
Also, this episode includes the part that Benson and Aubrey broke up but everyone didn't get the memo. The fandom didn't got it as well? What the hell happened? Are things never worked out? We'll never know. Anyway, stay tuned for Number 18 as we enter an adventure in Time and Space.
