Maybe it's because of the bad taste the previous episode left in my mouth, but I loved this one. It's also nice when the show gives Larry some focus. He made for an entertaining temporary manager, and him trying to get the customers in shape was fun. The antics that followed were actually amusing, and I liked how SpongeBob and Squidward worked together to stop him when things got a bit too crazy. Larry being in a semi-antagonist role was a bit strange at first, but I just sort of rolled with it and it worked. I also loved how the "MY LEG!" gag returned, along with Bubble Bass making a long order similar to his one from "Pickles". Minor nostalgia gags that were small, but actually done right. Impressive work, Gruber.

Grade: A-

Trophy has a point about it being Larry's version of Bossy Boots. But I wouldn't mind every minor character getting their own KK takeover episode to freshen up the joint. The weight plates were funny and the gym continuity was a welcome nod, even if Larry agreed to blow it off too easily. This episode also has me clamoring for a full Bubble Bass/Spongebob team-up episode in the future.

B+

I thought this episode was great, and having Larry being temporary manger is good idea,. it's cool to see something new for once without Plankton stealing the forumla routine (thank god it wasn't), and SB & Squidward's teaming up once again was cool too. the jokes here are great, and even Bubble Bass's order was funny. Overall, it's nice to see Larry gets a focus for this episode.

Final Grade: B+

This episode segment was a WELCOME breath of fresh air compared to the unfocused mess of the previous episode segment that follows this one. I agree that this does kind of seems like Larry's version of "Bossy Boots," but it was done in a very unique and innovative way. I'm glad they acknowledged that Larry still has his gym. I hope we get more Larry centered episodes that put Larry more into the spotlight! :D I'd give this episode segment a 10/10! :cool: Enough said! ;)

Since the worst post-sequel writer wrote this episode (who's remotely responsible for the show's increasing wackiness in the last season) for the most part, I wasn't excepting much here. Thankfully, it's better than I excepted, but it's still not what I have in mind. When I saw "Floor Manager" in the title, I thought Larry was going to become a crew member for a movie or something. Instead, it's another KK episode, but they still handled it well. It was kinda funny that Larry turned the Krusty Krab into the gym, abandoning the purpose of the KK. I was also wanting Larry to be like his appearance in The Check-up, but not seeing him dressed like Krabs was a bummer. The writer of this episode continues to have a thing against Squidward, who still goes insane for the sake of comedy. SpongeBob, Krabs and larry are thankfully in character, though. But Bubble Bass really stole the show for me here. His appearance was a lot like Pickles when he makes a long order. The ending was hilarious as well. It went from Healthy Krab to Fatty Krab in one minute. All in all, a good episode, but the plot would've been something better.

This was pretty damn good. Portraying Larry as supposedly a perfect musclular dude but instead he's such a pushy person worked out for me. There were a few over the top zany moments like Squidward overreacting and then getting hurt at the begining but this episode had some good gags like "return of my leg" gag, SpongeBob's sabotage plans working in favor of Larry and his buddies. The climax was actually more fun than Man Ray Returns because the set up of it actually worked. Yeah, the episode's plot was similar to Bossy Boots but I thought this episode was more fun, so it didn't bother me much and Larry was a great antagonist. Not the mention SpongeBob and Squidward team up is always welcome. One thing tho, people at Bikini Bottom really don't care about their health. I mean yeah, that was always ben part of this show but after how this episode even made healty and strong people unhealthy fat people and then seeing same costumers being fatter was so sad, in fact kind of disturbing.

After how mess Man Ray Returns was, this felt like a good time I've had with this show again.

I thought this was a pretty good episode, better than the last one. The fact that Larry tried to ruin the Krusty Krab and turn it into a gym was pretty amusing and I liked how SpongeBob rallied the customers to bring back the krabby patties. I wasn't too fond of the gross-out humor but it didn't ruin the episode for me.

These Larry themed episodes seem to get more and more interesting. I like Larry, I think he's a pretty likable character. And this episode perfectly transforms him into an entertaining antihero. I wasn't sure what to expect with this episode. The title sounded premising, but I wasn't too sure what we'd get out of the plot. I really liked seeing Larry take the role of Krabs at the end of The Checkup, I thought that was a pretty clever plot twist, so seeing Larry take the role as Krusty Krab manager for real, is pretty intriguing.

First off, I need to get something out of my way. This episode is half original/half ripoff in a sort of way. When I use the term "ripoff", I use it very lightly, because I know it's never the writers' intentions to rip off a previously established episode. I generally use this to describe episodes that have the same general theme as an older episode. On one hand, seeing Larry act as temporary manager is pretty original, and interesting. But on the other hand, this episode feels like a mix of Krusty Dogs and Bossy Boots. Goodness, this episode even replaces Krabby Patties with salads! However, the execution of this episode differs from that of Bossy Boots, and instead goes the route of Krusty Dogs, in which Squidward and SpongeBob try to revert the Krusty Krab back to it's former glory. And honestly...I kind of like it. Krusty Dogs, although a good episode, had kind of an awkward vibe to it. The pacing of it was very slow, and most of the episode's humor was executed in a very surreal, and somewhat mean spirited way. This episode, however, has tons of goofy, funny gags. Turning the Krusty Krab into an over-the-top gym was pretty funny to witness. And in this case, it makes sense why the restaurant is turned into the gym, seeing that Larry owns one now. Oh yeah, Larry's Gym is still part of the continuity. His gym is referenced a few times in this episode, so the changes he makes to the Krusty Krab are kind of expected from a super healthy, and fit guy. A lot of the humor in this episode is really funny, especially the extreme, over-the-top flexing from Larry and the buff fish. I like how the episode doesn't really focus that much on how the food at the Krusty Krab is affected, but rather the experience at the Krusty Krab is changed. This is what separates this episode from the likes of Bossy Boots and Krusty Dogs. The premise seems eerily similar to Bossy Boots, and a lot of plot devices (Particularly Squidward and SpongeBob's plans) are very similar to that of Krusty Dogs, but the episode's humor, and characters come off as very original.

This is probably one of the funniest episodes out there, that centers on visual humor. There's a lot of creativity with the visual gags in this episode, that actually makes them quite enjoyable to watch. It doesn't feel lazy (Like the gags in Sportz?), nor does it come off as "Lol Random" humor (Like in The Clam Whisperer).

As I said, I really like Larry's character in this episode. His intentions in this episode perfectly fits his character. Especially, since he runs a Gym, his view of the Krusty Krab when running it is bound to conflict with the standards of the Krusty Krab. Plus, there are plenty of jokes surrounding his character in this episode, that I found pretty funny. From his whimpering pecs, to his extreme flexing, Larry was a pretty enjoyable character in this episode. The rest of the characters in this episode are pretty good, SpongeBob was perfectly in character, Squidward did have some flaws (Primarily when he went crazy at the beginning of the episode), and some unfunny moments, but he was alright, I guess. Krabs was a pretty decent character, and I found Bubble Bass to be pretty funny in this episode. The highlight of this episode by far is seeing Fred finally yelling "My LEG!" (With Mr. Lawrence voicing him!).  :myleg: FINALLY! After many attempts, they got it right!

Overall, this is a very solid episode. Full of funny, creative gags, an interesting plot, a solid conclusion, it's a Great Episode. All in all, it gets a 9/10.

This was a good episode. The premise is a really interesting idea, with Larry taking over the krusty krab, and it was a good episode. Seeing Larry take over the krusty krab and turn it into a gym was cool, and I liked the battle scenes at the end where they fed the gym guys krabby patties. 8/10.
