You really shouldn't care that much about the SBM ratings of the episodes because there are a lot of them that are either underrated or overrated. Don't say that this place is full of enterbots (stupid term btw) just because of that.
I said the enterbots thing cuz of everyone saying "Urgghhh this episode is nothing but squid torture". As an ex-enterbot myself, now just seeing people use the term STP really grinds my gears.

Ew, the STP term is thrown out too easily sometimes. I agree, it's annoying.

I really liked some parts of this episode! I liked the fact that they tried to ''copy'' Culture Shock...BUT I didn't like the fact that they were throwing SB and Squidward FOOD and stuff because they wanted to eat....is that even logical? I liked SpongeBob's ''crazy'' laugh at the ending :P ,I didn't like what Patrick said (can he get even more IDIOT? Because that's not stupid at all, it is just NOT GOOD) I also liked and laughed at a scene though :P ''But, who will refill the empty chasm in my soul?'' ''I...don't know, man...I don't know.'' and I also liked how Mr.Krabs was appearing out of the nowhere to say to Squidward do your job or else NO show :P But throwing food :/ ... I guess I will give a 6 out of 10

It has an interesting concept, but goes nowhere. A few funny parts and a different tone give this one a notch above season 7's worst.

4.5/10

Episode: The Play's the Thing (S7-E138-A)

I like this episode but this is too decent. It's just a rip-off of Culture Shock. Why won't Mr. Krabs and the customers leave Squidward's play alone? To be honest, plays should be an elegant performance in order to impress the viewers, NOT INTERRUPT HIM (Squidward) FOR A ::dolphin noise:: KRABBY PATTY! All Mr. Krabs care more than Squidward's play is the stupid money. How cheap. The only thing I like is the food fight, but I don't like the ending. It's creepy. :patgross:

Final Score = 5/10

Kinda surprised people don't like this one - I remember it being the only season seven episode that stood out to me as funny back when it aired, and I still stand by that.

One of the most boring and forgettable Season 7 episodes. Not too much stood out here, and the play idea was already kinda taken by Squirrel Jokes, a much better episode. I think this episode could have been good had they added more humor. But as it stands, pretty dang boring.

Ranking so far:
1. The Inside Job (A+)
2. The Bad Guy Club for Villains (A)
3. Squidward in Clarinetland (A)
4. Growth Spout (B)
5. The Curse of Bikini Bottom (B)
6. Greasy Buffoons (B)
7. A Day Without Tears (B)
8. I Heart Dancing (B)
9. SpongeBob's Last Stand (B)
10. Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful (B)
11. Kracked Krabs (C)
12. Gary in Love (C)
13. Model Sponge (C)
14. Back to the Past (D)
15. The Play's the Thing (D)
16. Tentacle-Vision (D)
17. Summer Job (E)
18. Someone's in the Kitchen with Sandy (F)
19. Stuck in the Wringer (F)
20. Yours, Mine and Mine (F-)
21. A Pal for Gary (F-)
22. One Coarse Meal (F-)

A recycled plot from Season 1 and it was a bad episode. 4/10.
