Season 5 Discussion


Recommended Posts

At first, this season was my second least favorite SB season and It's still is. Yup, my thoughts on season 5 didn't change much but this season is still a good season, not great but good. I know a lot of people thinks season 5 is way better than season 7 but to be honest, I found more enjoyment in season 7 than season 5. IMO season 7 had more great episodes than season 5 has like Tunnel of Glove, Squidward in Clarinetland, Enchanted Tiki Dreams, The Inside Job, Earworm, The Sinking Feeling, Kracked Krabs, Greasy Buffons more than season 5 has but season 7 is not great either because this season is the most mean-spritied SB season ever. Okay, enough with season 7. We all know SpongeBob dropped in quality when season 4 started but even though I think season 4 is the begining of decline, I thought season 4 was a great season and I don't think this is the begining of dark age for SpongeBob. The begining of SB's dark age starts in this season. This is the begining of gross-out humor, unfunny jokes, disappointing plots and some OOC moments. In my opinion, season 5 is a little forgettable season because It had some meh and forgettable episodes like Waiting, The Donut of Shame, Altantis SquarePantis, Mermaid Man vs. SpongeBob, etc and It had some bad episodes like Good Ol' Whatshisname, To Love a Patty and To Save a Squirrel. Okay, I said all of negatives about this season. Now It's time to say positives about this season. Even though this is the begining of dark age, this season has some really amazing episodes that can be compared to pre-movie episodes like Roller Cowards, Goo Goo Gas, Krabs a La Mode, New Digs, Sing a Song of Patrick and Two Faces of Squidward. We all know season 5 for It's short episodes and to be honest, I actually enjoyed watching all short episodes in season 5. Yes, I like short episodes in season 5, shoot me NOW. I actually found short episodes in season 5 interesting, creative, funny and very entertaining. There's another good thing about season 5. This season actually focused on characters' past lifes, their relatives and their ancestors more than other seasons. I'm so sure that no one realized it. Also this season has less mean-sprited episodes than season 4 a little. For example, this season didn't focus on Squidward abouse much actually, the only ones I can think of are Good Ol' Whatshisame and Boating Smarts but these episodes are tame compared to season 4 and 6's Squidward abuse episodes. It's not without mean-spirtied episodes though. Examples: "Whatever Happened to SpongeBob, Waiting, Good Ol' Whatshisname, etc.". I said all of my thoughts on season 5. Overall, It's a good season but not that great. I rate it 7.5/10

I actually liked this season apart from several episodes and I feel like it gets a bad images because of certain people I will not mention right now, and yes some episodes like To Love A Patty were horrible I also felt like the idea was a good idea, and the writers might have made a mistake on how to plot worked, I.e. Battle for Bikini Bottom They could have had something different along the lines of SB, Krabs and some other battling Plankton, but the three this horrible one where Patrick wipes SpongeBob in his pits...I mean in every season there's gonna be bad eggs And IMO this was the last quality season before it started going downhill.

Good Season

 

Easily the show's most underrated season. This season feels a lot different than the first 4 but still manages to keep the energy and hilarious jokes over. Yeah there was more gross-out but I loved how experimental and fast-paced this season was so it never had a dull moment. Season 5 is flawed but it's miles above those train-wrecks known as seasons 6 and 7. I also think season 5 is a lot better than season 8 because season 8 has a number of awful episodes and is kinda a snooze fest.

Season Thoughts:

This season, while still good, is not as good as the first four seasons for sure. This is the season where I think the show started to get a bit worse, even if it didn’t become bad literally at all. This season is where I feel there started to become much more boring/bland episodes, and where they started adding gross things into the show more; Battle, TLAP, and Fungus are the biggest examples of this. However, I still defitenly this season. There’s much more good than bad, and this season has many great episodes such as Atlantis (yes), Roller Cowards, Friend or Foe, etc. Overall, it’s a good season

Also, I think I may have this season rated lower than it should be; a bun h of these episodes might be able to go up a bit in their ratings.

A Flea in Her Dome: 3.5/10

The Donut of Shame: 6.5/10

The Krusty Plate: 4.5/10 (Overrated, too short for my liking)

Goo Goo Gas: 8.5/10

Le Big Switch: 5/10 (Another overrated one. While I don't hate this episode anymore like I used to, I'll still never understand why it gets so much love)

Atlantis Squarepantis: 1/10 (Sorry Wintermelon, but it REALLY does suck!)

Picture Day: 5.5/10

Pat No Pay: 3/10

Blackjack: 5/10

Blackened Sponge: 5.5/10

MermaidMan vs. SpongeBob: 5/10

The Inmates of Summer: 5/10 (I barely remember it since I haven't seen it in years, so this rating could change if I rewatch it. I don't remember anything that bad or spectacular from it, though)

To Save a Squirrel: 4.5/10 (Perhaps if the episode lived up to its title it would've been actually enjoyable)

Pest of the West: 3.5/10

20,000 Patties Under the Sea: 5/10

The Battle of Bikini Bottom: 6/10

Whatever Happened to SpongeBob? : 3.5/10 (It's bad, but I honestly believe that much worse stuff exists even in this very season)

The Two Faces of Squidward: 7/10

SpongeHenge: 2.5/10 (I keep forgetting about this episode for some reason, but it really is garbage. I think even with this score I'm being generous).

Banned in Bikini Bottom: 5/10 (This episode is just BARELY a meh! Had it not been for the fact that I kinda chuckled at the ending, I would've given this one a low rating)

Stanley S. Squarepants: 3/10

Wow, now that I've graded this season, it actually has more middle of the road episodes then I initially thought. Still, overall, don't like this season. Just like Season 4, it is FAR too overpraised these days. The bad episodes in this season, even if it didn't have quite an enormous amount, were still REALLY bad and the bottom 5 (Boat Smarts, Waiting, Fungus Among Us, To Love a Patty and Atlantis) are all some of the worst of the whole series and most of the good stuff just isn't quite good enough to salvage it (Though Roller Cowards is my 15th favorite episode ever and Krabs a la Mode is also fantastic, so those are really the only exceptions). It's certainly way better then the huge load of trash to come (Seasons 6 and 7), but it's still a bad season regardless. I give it props for trying to be a more experimental and risk-taking season, but ultimately I think most of the experiments just fell flat.

Definitely the worst season thus far. But it's still not that bad. It's just weak, and I would have liked a few more good episodes.

Favorite episode: Krabs a la Mode

Least favorite episode: SpongeHenge

In-the-middle episode: Le Big Switch

Overrated episode: The Original Fry Cook

Underrated episode: Atlantis SquarePantis

It is the definition of a hit or miss season. Lots of great episodes, and my favorite post movie episode (Friend or Foe), but a lot of bad and awful episodes. It is nearly split down the middle with episodes I like and do not like. I love stuff like Sing a Song with Patrick, The Krusty Plate, and Spy Buddies, but stuff like Fungus Among Us, Atlantis, and Waiting are horribad. Still better than 6-10 though, and the last time till 9b that the show could pull off some consistently good episodes.
