I finally watched this and Luke Brooksheir's return was pretty good. Now this is how you do a SpongeBob/Patrick/Squidward episode. It barely went overboard and it was quite amusing. I liked seeing Spongeob and Patrick going to different places to search for things. Squidward's karma wasn't overboard and it was well deserved. Granted it was SpongeBob and Patrick that started all but Squidward's treatment was no better. I really loved how it ended with Squidward becoming SpongeBob and Patrick's brother. It was so unexpected and pretty damn hilarious. This episode wasn't anything amazing but it did its job just fine, being an entertaining 11 minute story.

Grade: B+

I had a hard time knowing what to expect from this episode. Luke Brookshier's track record is so mixed ranging 6 seasons, 3 co-writers, and episodes that range from Roller Cowards to Truth or Square. This was really the first sample of Luke Brookshier's solo work.

And it was pretty good. Not amazing but fairly amusing. Once again the episode starts out weak with SpongeBob and Patrick acting a little on the obnoxious side but once the scavenger hunt begins the episode picks up. I think this episode does a good job at avoiding the pit falls of Boating Buddies and That Sinking Feeling by having Squidward deserve his karma and having the ending be funny, unpredictable, and a little cute as opposed to annoying, predictable, and boring. The rest of the episode is a nice framing device for gags from all these out there locations and seeing just how SpongeBob and Patrick will find these objects with a hilarious and unpredictable ending. This was borderline okay, but besides Sponge + Pat going a little overboard in some scenes I really liked everything else, so I'd say it was pretty good.

7/10

I got quite a lot things to say about this interesting episode. First off, that is a cool title card. Although, I wish we seen more scenes that took place outside of Bikini Bottom, but it was still an enjoyable one to watch. Anyway, what made this typical "annoy Squidward" episode worked is the way the plot and location was handled. I mean, there might be some dumb moments (Squidward's brother didn't made me laugh), but I was intrigued with the whole story. Everyone is written in character. I really want to share you some good moments, but I'll just spoil the ending for you. That ending while it was kind of foolish, it just cracked me up at how Squidward took the situation. Let's just say that SpongeBob and Patrick are now adopted by his mother. All in all, this was a good episode of SpongeBob’s 11th season. Really made up for the rather mediocre episode from yesterday. Out of all the returning writer’s episode in this era, I still liked Kaz’s Sewers of Bikini Bottom the best. Nevertheless I’m glad Brookshier is back.

Brookshier did a great job with this one. The ending is one of the craziest endings (in a good way) in SpongeBob to me. There were jokes that got me, and the plot was interesting. 8.5/10

This episode is actually great. I'm not really sure why it's getting so much hate. The premise of this episode is good, and I'm surprised it wasn't used yet. All of the jokes are funny, and the points that lead up to the ending were done perfectly. And I love how they made that reference to the movie.

This episode was pretty good. I liked the plot and enjoyed the ending. I feel like the return of epic meme faces is overshadowing the episode.

Well, Gee SpongeBob and Patrick, if you're bored why don't you go (like you used to.) and find you something to do that doesn't involve ruining Squidward's free time.
You left him alone he wouldn't have to try and get rid of you.
When Squidward begins talking about his "brother" I do feel like it was a missed opportunity for SpongeBob and Patrick to mistake Squilliam for Squidward's brother and brought him back. Adopting themselves as Squidward's brothers seemed shoe-horned in for comedy sake.
1. You're complaining about SpongeBob having comedy.
2. If that was the actual ending, then it would've came out of nowhere
