Am I the only one who actually likes this episode in a non-"so bad it's good" way? I'm being serious.

Now, I know this episode is a bit disgusting and has that clam scene, but yeah, it's okay. I could have more reasons why I can tolerate this episode, but I don't remember. Like "The Krusty Sponge" that premiered two days before, which is also a satirical look at why Nickelodeon loves SpongeBob so much, I'll guess this may also be a take on all those weird fandoms (bronies, furries, weeaboos, Sonic etc.). 8/10

Disclaimer: I am not a creep, and I don't intend to be. Even I could have found parts of this episode disturbing. Feel free to remove any fandom references if you want.

This episode is disgusting, retarded, and violent. Disgusting because of the close up of the dirty patty. It didn't make me throw up but it gave me goosebumps. Retarded because SpongeBob fell in love with an inanimate object. Violent because SpongeBob killed 13 clams.

It's not my least favorite of season 5, but it is still pretty weird. The gross closeups were gruesome :patgross: and SpongeBob is unlikeable. (He beat up baby scallops! Could one of them be JUNIOR, the scallop he took care of in Rock-a-bye Bivalve?) At least I can tolerate the song.

2.5/10, in between awful and bad.

This episode is gross, absurd, disturbing, and damaging. Let's start with gross. When the patty begins to rot, it is extremely gross and hard to look at. Also, a few more scenes to look at that combine with the other problems. Absurd. The plot is SpongeBob dates a Krabby Patty. That wasn't some demented fan fiction, that is what professional writers decided to make. Just WOW. The patty rotting is disturbing on top of a scene I will say in a second. And the episode is damaging for two things. One, this feels like the episode where most of the writers gave up (that doesn't mean there weren't anymore good episodes, obviously). Second, is the clam scene. This represents all my problems with the episode. Gross(ed out) (expression from audience). Absurd, the fact that a childhood icon is murdering birds for a SANDWICH. Disturbing (SpongeBob ripping apart clams is unbearable). And especially damaging. After this episode, you will never see Rock-A-Bye Bivalve the same again as one of those clams could have been Junior. This is my 2nd least favorite episode of the show and least favorite of season 5. 0/10

I don't like this episode, it's not funny, the gross out crabby patty, everything sucks in this episode. The song was ok, but not redeemable enough.

1.5/10

More boring than terrible in my opinion. Gross out humor doesn't make an episode bad for me.

Oh boy, To Love A Patty, first of all, the concept to this episode, is bad, why would Spongebob date anythng? Didn't Stephen Hillenberg wanted Spongebob to be a fun, adoring, relatable guy, not someone who has dates or has a grilfriend. Also, this episode is not funny in the slightest. The song is ok, but the music video is terrible, especially when he chops ups those clams. Also, the Krabby Patty's gross-up close-up is really gross looking, yet Spongebob doesn't see that it's wrong. This episode is so stupid and annoying.

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough in my review, I might as well give it a re-review.

Ugh, this episode is very, very...disgusting. Why, you may ask? Well, considering the closeups of the rotten Krabby Patty, it was pretty cringey and it gave me a strong sick feeling in my stomach. Watching the scenes with the rotten Krabby Patty is just so nasty! I can't even look at the Krabby Patty without getting sick. The plot is that Spongebob dates a Krabby Patty, not only is that creepy, it is very stupid. I mean, you're in love with a Krabby Patty, so much you won't eat it, like you should with a Krabby Patty? Come on. (Little personal story of mine, I once fell in love with a cupcake, but I at least I ate it right after I kissed it and I enjoyed every bite). There was the part where Spongebob beat up the baby clams, and it really annoyed the living heck out of me, all just because of his stupid patty :planet: , I mean seriously? Not to mention, most if not all of the jokes felt like the writers were running out of ideas, because they were not funny in the slightest. Maybe there might be one or two jokes that gave me a chuckle, but still. I know the writers can do better than this. I kinda liked the song (the instrumentals were actually decent, but the lyrics were messed up), but I think that is the only redeeming quality of the episode. I give this a 1/10 (extra .5 for the song). Terrible.

This episode is pure-evil, should burn in a fire and is something that shouldn't be an episode on a kids show, even SpongeHenge that everyone says doesn't belong in SpongeBob is at least meant to be creepy on purpose but this "thing" is creepier than episodes like Squid's Visit. Honestly this episode is the bane of my existence and I hope I will never have to lay sight on it again.

Definitely a runner up for worst season 5 episode. This episode transcends awful and I don't think I really need to explain why at this point. I heard that there's a commentary for this episode, I want that commentary, I must know what was going through their heads when they made this... thing.
