This episode rarely gets any hate. Emphasis on the "rarely" this time. It gets about as much hate as The Inside Job, which I used to dislike but I've grown into. If you know where to look, it's at least there. And I'm fine with it, the show has had much, much, much worse. (My score of 37 Atrocity pts. is actually a bit misleading) And unlike Artist Unknown, it's not really "praised," per se (outside of SBM). I'm much more angered that it's not considered a rip-off, actually. At least the SpongeBob was theoretically in the same place, even though it was incredibly forced and I'd rather have SpongeBob get the fame, but it's better than having a part taken away from him. Well, it could, but it most likely isn't. And if SpongeBob was at the audition WHY didn't he ::dolphin noise::ing audition!? But still, he could have died from doing the same excercize for that long. And Squidward actually realized he got punished, and there's a little reasoning as to his behavior (though not enough), which is extremely selfish. And unlike AU, which opened on bragging, there was some okay humor in the beginning (my favorite being the pizza and knight falling on the table. However, that doesn't take away from the fact of how excessively cruel the episode is. SpongeBob did nothing wrong, besides breaking Squidward's treadmill, which was that little reasoning even though it was technically Squid's fault that he left SpongeBob doing it this long, and the "Who put you on the planet" thing (yes, I actually didn't like that, it was a rude comment and the expression was disturbing). It kind of looked like a Squidward torture ::dolphin noise::, but in this case it wasn't SpongeBob torturing him, he was only dancing to music. Any other wrong-doing he did to Squid were accidents. And SpongeBob was a great dancer. I mean great. He's just as talented at dancing as he was art, perhaps even better. The animation of the dance sequence compliments it. That's what makes it so hard to watch Squidward's criticisms. And it's unfortunate, since they actually made Squid unlikeable for once. However, it falls on the same path as Little Yellow Book, only worse. Another positive is the critic knew it was SpongeBob who was the one, despite SB still not getting the fame and fortune he deserves. By the way, Squidward is a horrible dancer. All he did was hop on one leg. The plot also came out as predictable. We knew what Squidward's plan was, and we knew SB would go against it somehow. And that predictability is enforced by how direct of a rip-off it is. Every element of it reminds me of Artist Unknown, which if not blantanly clear I really hate. Oh, and Squilliam was shoehorned in the end for fan service. Not cool, man, not cool.
Prime example of people taking SpongeBob way too seriously. TheMysteriousMrEnter much?

I like this episode! It feels a lot like a pre-movie episode to me. Doesn't really have any glaring flaws, a bit light on jokes, but the dance scenes are enjoyable.

This episode is okay, it's not that great, and it's not the funniest episode. The only real memorable part is that, "Who Put You on the planet?" line. But other than that, the episode is pretty forgettable and Squidward was a little bit of a jerk throughout the episode. One thing that I did like about this was that the dances were a bit clever.

5/10

I like it, even though I think it's sister episode is WAYYY better...I enjoyed Squidward trying to get SpongeBob to dance....Man, how energetic can SpongeBob get :P He's like me ^^ I am way too energetic as well!! Another thing I like is the ending, that woman tells Squidward his dance was the best dance that she's ever seen in the last years and what I liked about that was Squidward's face , he was like ''What the...are you serious??really?? :O '' but ofcourse he got what he deserved for being such a jealous cherry-cake over SpongeBob...Another scene I liked was SpongeBob's dance , that goofy,awkward and weird dance you'd at a club and be like ''Why is everyone looking at me? Oh, well..'' And Squilliam teached the same dance at Squidward in the end, what a coincidence hahaha :D I'll give it a fair rating of 9/10 :)

I used to love this episode, but rewatching it, it is mediocre. :/ The "Epilogue" was hilarious, will say that. I had also forgot about the butt cramps, so that surprised me a bit.

That's Slimy Dancing, a season 5 episode that sure has some similarities with this season 7 episode.

Episode: I ♥ Dancing (S7-E127-B)

I don't like this episode that much. The only thing I like is SpongeBob's groovy dance. I hate Squidward being envy and stealing SpongeBob's talent. Good thing Squilliam criticizes Squidward's dance too. The ending is good.

Final Score = 6/10

I kinda like this one. I love "Who put you on the planet?!" and there are some funny jokes. But the episode did feel kinda similar to Slimy Dancing, plus the dancing was a little repetitive, so that's why I'm not ranking this one any higher.

Ranking so far:
1. I Heart Dancing (B)
1. Tentacle-Vision (D)

A perfectly good episode. The jokes in this episode mostly hit the mark, especially the whole "who put you on the planet" thing. Also, I liked the brief return of Squilliam here. The episode wasn't about him, but it was nice to see him. It was also interesting to see Squidward's dancer side, as we don't usually see that aspect of his character. I do get this one confused with Slimy Dancing a lot, but it is still a good episode on its own. 7.5/10
