  • Hey, I'm the 100th to vote! :D THIS EPISODE SUCKED!!!

    1.0
    This episode sucked, SpongeBob has no idea what a viking is! He is SUCH A *** IN THE NEW EPISODES! And the worst part is the ending! IT IS HORRIBLE! Season 6, you have failed again.
  • I don't see the hate for DV, but it was okay. Ditchin; was more enjoyable

    8.0
    Dear Vikings: I think this episode is underrated. The idea is very weird but it is unique to the show. Funny moments: Some of the Vikings antics, all of them being named Olaf expect the leader (Gordon), and probably two/three more. Dethroning moments: SpongeBob kissing Squidward (hopefully that crap stop in the new season) and the ending. I don't really has any more stuffs to say about the episode. I can understand why they hated it: lame storyline and it got nominated with a Phineas and Ferb episode (tough choice) but it was tie. :/ 6/10



    Ditchin: This was an improvement over Dear Vikings for sure. A flawless episode. Funny moments: Patrick drinking all the water, SpongeBob trying to go to the restroom, Mermaid Man stupidly asking what is evil, much to Barnacle Boy's dismay, and the ending. Awesome: I'll say most of the episode especially the volleyball scene. Nightmare Fuel: After the volleyball scene, things start to tget dramatic: a person was eating his own kind, then SpongeBob rushes back to the boating school, but he then fall in a mud. Overlap with tearjerker. 10/10 (BTW, I'm now using tropes from TVTropes website if you noticed in my recent reviews)moreless
  • Dear Vikings was very boring, but Ditchin was great.

    5.5
    Dear Vikings - I thought this episode was just BAD, very BAD. It made no sense at all! First of all why would there be vikings underwater? Second of all why would they even come just because there was a cup at the Krusty Krab that was Viking Sized? The problem with this episode was that it was just boring! Spongebob made a wrong decision to send a letter to the Vikings. But I liked when Spongebob wanted to know what Vikings are. I liked some of the guest stars too, such as Ian McShane, he played Gordon, who I think is the leader of the Vikings I can't remember since it was a while since I last saw this episode. I liked how Spongebob saved the boat from sinking but it wasn't funny when he said "Now that's what I call a Viking Sized Adventure". Overall despite a few good moments this episode was just boring, uncreative, pointless, and stupid. 3/10



    Ditchin - Okay I haven't seen this episode in a while either. But it was a lot better than "Dear Vikings". I found it very funny when Patrick drank tons of water bottles and was fat (Despite that he has always been fat), it was hilarious how Spongebob was the 100th customer and got to eat as much ice cream as he wanted. The Bikini Bottom hug fest was a little stupid but still cute. I thought it was fun to watch Spongebob and Patrick play BadMinton with Sandy and her friend (I think his name is Dale). And the ending could have been better, same with the whole episode plot. Overall a great episode, better than "Dear Vikings"! 8/10

  • Two enjoyable episodes to watch BUT I thought "Ditchin'" was a little better than "Dear Vikings"

    9.0
    Dear Vikings: I thought that this was a great episode. It kind of didn't make sense to me because why would vikings be underwater? BUT oh well... I guess the writers wanted to be a little creative and make something fiction. I thought it was great that Ian McShane guest starred in this episode as the voice of Gordon because he is a great actor. I thought it was interesting when SpongeBob wanted to know what vikings are. I thought Squidward telling SpongeBob the story of what vikings do was very funny. SpongeBob writing a letter to the vikings was very funny. I thought it was plain hilarious when all of the vikings' names were Olive except for one viking whose name is Gordon. The vikings flinging that one viking out of the ship with the catapult was also funny. I thought it was also great when SpongeBob used his absorbentness to save the vikings' ship from sinking at the end of the episode. My score was just a little low because this episode had some parts that just kind of dragged and the plot could have improved just a little more. Overall, this was a great episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". 8.5/10



    Ditchin': In my opinion, I thought that this episode was a little better than "Dear Vikings". I thought it was interesting when Patrick convinced SpongeBob to ditch one day of boating school so they can get their comic books signed by MermaidMan and BarnacleBoy. I thought it was funny when Patrick was drinking all of the water bottles from SpongeBob's refrigerator. MermaidMan and BarnacleBoy's appearances in this episode were also funny even though they were only in this episode for a minute or so. I thought it was funny that Spongebob was the 100th customer and that he can eat all of the free ice cream he wants. I thought SpongeBob and Patrick playing a game of Badminton with Sandy and their friend Dale was very interesting to watch. It was funny that there was a fish that was getting arrested for eating gummy fishes because he's eating his own kind. The Bikini Bottom HugFest scene was also very funny. SpongeBob bringing the key back to Mrs. Puff was also very interesting. My score is just a little low because I thought the plot could have been a little better and I kind of didn't like the ending. Overall, this was a superb episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". 9/10
