Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • None were amazing


    At first I thought this episode had potential. When squidwards 'fab&fancy' is cancelled he is furious and calls Zeus the guitar lord who's show replaced 'fab&fancy'. I hate Zeus. He makes the beginning of the episode slow down and I don't like his character. Squidward asks for a TV show. Even though the beginning was slow and unfunny I still thought that squidward having his own TV show could be an amazing plot. But spongebob and patrick find out and ruin his TV show. Then everyone ruins squidwards TV show. It even goes as far as him being kicked out of his own house! Poor squidward

    A squidward torture porn which could've been an amazing episode 1/10


    This plot was also interesting. Even though it's another 'plankton tries but fails to steal the secret recipe' episode I like the idea of plankton going inside spongebobs body and controlling his body. But I think this episode was really boring and forgettable because of the lack of humor. Also, I think plankton needed someone to talk to because he was talking to himself throughout the episode and I wanted to see some dialogue between plankton and karen or someone. The transformations when plankton was being made to look like spongebob and then patrick went on for too long.

    Could've been amazing but lost it's chance

  • "The Inside Job" was good. "Tentacle Vision" wasn't.

    Tentacle Vision: I can see why some people would't like this episode. Everybody hates Squidward. In this episode, we find out that Squidward can't even have his own TV show. It starts out with Squidward expecting a show called "Fab and Fancy" on TV. He is horrified when he finds out that it has been cancelled and replaced with "Zeus The Guitar Lord" A furious Squidward calls him by his number, to find out that they give TV shows to anyone, so Squidward asks for his own TV show. I thought this was going to be a good potential for Squidward, until (guess who) Spongebob and Patrick come into the scene. Their stupidity manages to encourage everyone to ruin Squidward's show. Squidward asked them if they thought that it was some kind of housewarming and Larry (who is suddenly there) tells everyone. Then, Squidward gets kicked out of his own TV show, because everyone in Bikini Bottom hates him, Zeus gets to take over Squidward's show, and Squidward, as usual, is left to suffer. I'll be honest, this episode does have some funny moments, like Squidward saying "Gimmeatvshowgimmeatvshowiwannashow!" and in my opinion, the highlight of the episode is Squidward asking Patrick just how dumb he is, and Patrick saying "It varies" Not only is that a true fact, but it also made me laugh. So yes, not a great episode, but it does have some good humour. 5/10.

    The Inside Job: This is one of my favourite episodes of season 7. It has also got to be one of Plankton's closest attempts to stealing that Krabby Patty formula so far. Karen tries to launch Plankton into Mr. Krabs' brain, but instead misses and ends up inside Spongebob, so Plankton uses Spongebob instead. I thought that the writers thought of clever ways to prevent both Plankton and the audience from hearing the Patty formula or seeing how you make one. Such as Plankton using Spongebob's eyes, making Spongebob not being able to see a thing and therefore unable to make a patty. Also, Plankton using Spongebob's ears, making Spongebob deaf, making him unable to hear the formula. There are also a lot of funny moments, like sounds that make Squidward upset, being Spongebob's laughter, and Spongebob scratching Squidward's back, being controlled by Plankton. Plankton then finds the formula in the heart and transfers it into his brain, serving a side effect of Plankton turning into Spongebob and having his personality, then Patrick's. Overall, a much better episode than "Tentacle Vision" and this episode gets a 9/10.moreless
  • They were both superb episodes but I thought that "Tentacle Vision" was a little better though.

    Tentacle Vision: I thought that this was a superb episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". I thought Squidward being angry and calling the Guitar Lord on the phone was funny. It was funny that Squidward is airing his own talk show called "Squidward Chat" and he keeps on getting interrupted. I thought it was hilarious when Patrick ran back to his rock because SpongeBob told him that he was on television and then Patrick asked SpongeBob "Why would you lie to me SpongeBob?". It was hilarious when Patrick's mouth is on the television and the old lady responds "this is disgusting". I thought it was very funny that SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, Pearl, and Plankton all interrupted Squidward's talk show. It was funny that everyone in Bikini Bottom was inside Squidward's house because Larry Lobster thought that it was a housewarming party. It was hilarious that Squidward got kicked out of his own talk show and the Guitar Lord is hosting it. Overall, I didn't give this episode a 10 because it wasn't my favorite episode and it was just a little weak but it's the best episode out of the two. 9.5/10

    The Inside Job: Not as good as "Tentacle Vision" but it was still a superb episode in my opinion. I thought the plot to this whole episode was well written and very interesting. It was funny when Plankton missed Mr. Krabs' target and went inside SpongeBob instead. It was very funny when SpongeBob's eyeballs were all dark. It was very funny when Plankton tried to hear the krabby patty secret formula from Mr, Krabs while inside SpongeBob's body but Plankton's eardrums broke and then Plankton yelled "I hate my life". It was kind of disturbing but interesting that Plankton went inside SpongeBob's brain. It was funny that Plankton found out that Patrick's favorite place is to be scratched. It was also funny when the krabby patty secret formula is located in SpongeBob's heart and then Plankton says "How cheesy". It was very funny that Plankton turned into SpongeBob and then turned into Patrick after that near the end of the episode. Overall, not my favorite episode but it was a superb episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". 9/10moreless

  • Best episodes in spongebash.

    These episodes were so funny. These were my favorite episodes in The SpongeBash, along with Overbooked and Stuck in the Wringer. Tentacle Vision was very funny. I loved Zeus the Guitar lord. I liked the entire scene of Sponge and Pat helping out with the show. The ending was epic. I loved how everybody started coming to Squid's house. Very clever episode.

    The Inside Job was really LOL material, but it was clever. I loved Plankton turning into Sponge and pat. That was so cool. I also loved when Spongebob's house was in his brain. I also loved Plankton controlling Spongebob's eyes and ears and stuff. Overall very strong episodes.moreless
