Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Pat no Pay was okay, but the other two stunk

    Picture Day is another episode I vote as one of the all-time worst. It's VERY annoying and redundant, and the ending was PATHETIC. 0/10

    Pat no Pay: The only one I even liked a little here. 6.5/10

    Blackjack: Oh great. Here we go again. Another stinker. Completely dumb and moronic. Another 0.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 2 (originally posted last year on July 18): Nick has an upcoming show called Breadwinners that airs in 20 days. Today I found the pilot on YouTube and showed it to my family. EVERYONE HATED IT! They all said it was the worst thing they'd seen in their lives. And that includes The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure (2012), Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale (2006), and Rabbids Invasion. So I won't be surprised when Breadwinners gets a 1.9 just like Marvin Marvin here at and Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale at IMDb. My Aunt said I should rate it as low as possible just to get the score down. Unfortunately, the lowest one can rate is 1, unless you are a prolific author. I have been working on that for months (6 plus months), so I can rate stuff like Marvin Marvin, Fred: The Show, and The Oogieloves a 0.0. Breadwinners is next on my "to rate 0.0 once I can" list.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 18: Breadwinners premiered yesterday. I have reviewed it. It's bad but not as bad as Sanjay and Craig.moreless
  • This episode pair was a near miss for me.

    Picture Day: As perfect ol' Spongebob himself, he can't let himself mess up during his Picture Day at Boating School. The whole dirty/cleanse gag with Spongebob during the episode was getting a little tiresome to me, and the picture scene didn't really entertain me very much, it was a little ridiculous. It was an okay episode, but it needed improvement.

    Episode Grade: C

    Pat no Pay: Goodness, these 3-minute episodes sure aren't paying off. So Patrick goes into the Krusty Krab for a meal and refuses to pay. He couldn't do a very good job in order to pay Mr. Krabs back. With cheap ol' Mr. Krabs around, yeah...this was a near least favorite, it wasn't very enertaining at all, in my opinion.

    Episode Grade: C-

    Blackjack: This episode annoys me in a few ways, as the overexaggeration, the suspense killing, and Blackjack's very own twist, I mean, at least don't make Blackjack small. Yet another episode I think needs to be improved, but I don't hate this one either. The bit with Uncle Captain Blue was a little tiresome, but it was entertaining in a way, to make an additional statement.

    Episode Grade: C-

    Final Grade: C-moreless
  • SpongeBob tries to get clean for Picture Day; Patrick has to work in order to pay; SponeBob's cousin Blackjack comes out prison

    Picture Day: I thought this episode was decent. The plot wasn't the greatest and it's got repetitive because it's just SpongeBob getting dirty every time he get clean. There's only a few funny moments like the very beginning, a seaweed getting on SpongeBob's pants, Patrick licking, and the ending. Otherwise the episode was kinda dragged but at least it wasn't that bad until SpongeBob acted childish because of Patrick. Score 7/10

    Pat No Pay: This episode was a big improvement over Picture Day. It was much funnier and well done storyline even though it was short. This was probably the best short episode ever for the show. Patrick's appearance throughout was funny because I liked how he kept messing things around so that is the main reason why it is so funny. Overall, short but very funny episode. 10/10

    Blackjack: Another good episode of the pair. Like Picture Day, the plot wasn't the best thing like Pat No Pay, but it is a little better than PD. It lacked funny parts but I think there wasn't that much at all. I only laughed at SpongeBob doing all the chores for his uncle, the uncle (forgot his name) dancing to the polka song, and the ending. Overall, a decent episode with a lack of humor, but it doesn't mean it is poor....7./10moreless
