  • Am I the only one here who actually liked "Fungus Among Us" and hated "Le Big Switch"?

    8.0
    Fungus Among Us: I don't get why everyone here is hating on this episode. I laughed hard at most of the episode and I liked the storyline too. And everyone here complains mainly that it is gross, first of all, this is a cartoon and sure some episodes of Spongebob are gross but this one really didn't bother me that much, 2nd, call me crazy but I really didn't find this episode that gross, I'll admit it can be gross but mostly in a Funny way. And lastly, everyone is treating this episode like garbage and I feel like some people haven't even seen this episode. For example: "Fungus Among Us is diaper rash" from woahwoah678. That's a little harsh and no this episode is not Diaper Rash. Anyways, the episode was hilarious, I laughed when Patrick was playing another Pirate game (Which caused him to pop Spongebob's bubble or whatever he was inside. I also laughed towards the beginning when Spongebob kept itching his head like his crossword puzzle where Spongebob kept writing about how his head itches and other scenes too. This episode was so funny! I gave it a 9/10 because the only flaw I had was that scene towards the ending when Spongebob is all covered in Ick inside a bubble Patrick Bikini Bottom is selfish once again and they blame Spongebob for causing the Ick and people all start jumping on Spongebob's bubble and they don't listen to Spongebob about the fact that they're causing the Ick to leak. I also didn't like it when Squidward called the SWAT team on Spongebob. Overall a severely underrated and superb episode IMO. 9/10



    Le Big Switch: This episode was just really stupid IMO. I found it too cheesy and I don't get why everyone loves this episode unlike Fungus Among Us. The plot was lame, haven't we had enough episodes where Spongebob switches jobs and wants to return to his job at the Krusty Krab? Now there actually were a few gross moments in this episode unlike Fungus Among Us, I didn't like it when everyone at the restaurant was eating Krabby Patties off the floor and most of the humor here was cheesy, lame, and I was bored to death while watching this episode. It wasn't even that funny either. But there were funny moments such as the ending where all the customers were following Spongebob on his return to The Krusty Krab, and when Spongebob kept making Krabby Patties even with the wrong ingredients! That cracked me up right there! XD. Overall a highly overrated, boring, unfunny, lame episode IMO. 3.5/10moreless
  • "Fungus Among Us" mediocrity disgusting and "Le Big Switch" was perfect.

    7.5
    Fungus Among Us: I thought this episode was mediocre because it was disgusting. SpongeBob getting bigger because of the green fungus was the most disgusting of this episode and I didn't like it when everyone kept jumping on SpongeBob's bubble when they should be smart enough to know that they'll pop it and there would be fungus all over the Krusty Krab. I also didn't like Squidward because he called the SWAT Team on SpongeBob. Overall, this episode was mediocre and disgusting and it just bugged me a lot but it's not the worst episode ever though. 5.5/10



    Le Big Switch: This episode is better than "Fungus Among Us" and it's one of my favorite episodes. I thought SpongeBob going to the Fancy restaurant to work there was cool thing and that chef insulting the other chef's cooking was funny and I thought it was funny when SpongeBob makes something and it always turns into a krabby patty. It was funny when Squidward choked on SpongeBob's heart (beginning and end). I don't know why some people hate this episode but everyone has their own opinions. Overall, this was a perfect episode of SpongeBob. 10/10moreless

    8.0
    Fungus Among Us: This was an okay episode of SpongeBob. By production order, this is aired with Rise and Shine / Waiting and it is the first episode to be written by my least favorite post movie writer Richard Pursel (I don't hate him, but sometimes his writing get too idiotic.annoying at times...). Great moments/humor were the beginning, Patrick messing with the bubble, and the ending. I guess this episode wasn't the great because of that. But I don't really hate it. However, I don't liked the part where the customers (that's the pet peeves for the show, the writers need to stop making the people jerks) jump on SpongeBob and the way he looked when he got at the Krusty Krab (after the bubble was popped by Patrick). So overall, an okay but gross episode. 6/10



    Le Big Switch: This was a better episode especially for Richard Pursel. One of the better restaurant themed episodes. I didn't even has a con with it all at, so a perfect score will do. However, I did not realize that Nick premiered it on that day but I didn't even saw it until 2009 (on Youtube along with Goo Goo Gas). This is why Nick needs to has better scheduling instead of premiering different episodes. Anyway, there were funny parts such as Squidward getting his throath stuck by the heart (twice), Mr. Krabs throwing his customer out, the French accent chef through out the episode (he was a funny character), SpongeBob kept making something (and it is a Krabby Patty), and one more part. Overall score 10/10moreless
