I love this episode, it’s honestly amazing for how it pulls all of the characters together in one amazing idea. Everything about it works and works well.

I can relate to this one scene alone from the episode

Sandy: "He has such a way with words"

Random Purple Fish Who's Looking At Sandy: "You kidding me right now?"

I actually thought that was serious because Gary was supposedly a genius in the first season, maybe there is more than one interpretation?

This episode is essentially a compilation of plays all in one episode, and it's really funny IMO.

Great Episode (8.5/10)

Culture Shock is a non stop hilarious ride from beginning to end, Squidward giving everyone a shot at the big time while mainly wanting to focus on himself is perfect for his character. This episode is really funny, it has so many classic quotes and performances however I will admit this episode did confuse me for a long while. I always thought when Spongebob said "With this mop, I shape my destiny" I always thought he said "With this mop, I'll make, a living" Probably me being dumb and thinking of an episode like Squid's Day Off but anyway, the performances of how I love the performances. Everyone gets their time to shine and it's great that we got a nice reunion of the cast only in the 20th episode. Squidward's dance is of course amazing and I may be alone or I may not be but the ending really works IMO, Squid was a jackass for most of the episode so I think its fine he got publicly shamed. Although the audience has terrible taste if they don't like that dance, ITS GLORIOUS. This one never stood out to me that greatly until I got older, I'm only 16 now so who knows the older I get this may soon be my favorite episode, however Ripped Pants will always be my numero uno. Also the fact that this and Ripped Pants are both on Home Sweet Pineapple, another reason that DVD is awesome, another short one but what else can I say a hilarious classic and a very worthy episode of being in the top 15 (yes I changed my order again)

This is one of the more gag centered episodes of the season, and it is pretty funny. I feel like they spent too much time setting up the plot though, they could've utilized that time on some more performances from the characters. I feel like an episode like this could benefit from a faster paced story. The highlight of this episode was definitely the ending bit with Spongebob and Squidward swapping places on stage. That scene never fails to crack me up. Anyway, fine episode, not much else to say here.

7.5/10

The first few parts of the episode were very good and funny, especially Pearl's act, until the Bikini Bottomites kept torturing Squidward. And they think SpongeBob is better? Yeah, the ending is horrid, but the rest is pretty good.

The "double patty midnight madness" joke is hilarious. I want a whole episode about that.
