The show didn't decline until well after the first movie (after season 5). It has been inconsistent to some degree since. That's probably not that unpopular but it's just an observation that I had as I rewatch the whole show for the 20th anniversary. :)
Couldn't resist preordering The Next 100 Episodes. I'm sure it'll arrive in the fat clear case like the reissue of The First 100 Episodes rather than the cool box set-in-plexiglass we got 10 years ago. Ah well. Hopefully we see these on blu-ray one of these days!

I don't know who mrenter or mobros are, but I promise they didn't contribute that much at all to opinions of seasons 4+. Some people have always had a distaste for them. Personally I think season 4 is classic-tier and thereve been some great shorts since.

I've posted this before, but I have a keymaster (which means it includes the original painted background as well). It's from "Home Sweet Pineapple", where SpongeBob is putting the tiny pineapple on his head while Patrick looks on -- he's holding it high above his head. Cool stuff!
In other words, what episodes started production AFTER Hillenburg came back? I'm aware there is a LOT that goes into making a cartoon and the show's quality is not necessarily solely dependent on him. But I want to see if there is in fact a quality difference. I feel like the show has gotten...
if you're impatient for the season DVDs, I'd just get the themed, single-disc sets.
I personally am waiting for the First 100 Episodes blu-ray set, but I know it won't ever happen. Nickelodeon is stupid not to milk SBSP seasons 1-5 for the sixth time by issuing blu-ray. I'd buy them in a...
Yeah, the dialogue in the newer episodes seems over-explained and/or dumbed down and it really hurts the comedy. Sometimes subtlety is better and sometimes an initially subtle joke is ruined by addressing it. The only example I can think of is not the best, I think it's from "Chum Bucket...
