[SIZE=11pt]I have alot of things to say about this episode. The first 2 minutes are SpongeBob going around trying different cars, or boats, and I would say it wasn’t filler if it was a funny scene. It isn’t that much though. BUT, then the episode introduces Coupe, the boat who’s just a damn jerk and likes fancy stuff. THis Coupe character is honestly pretty bad, but how is the rest of the episode? [/SIZE]

The reason Coupe becomes jerky is because SpongeBob works at a place he doesn’t fit in… when he could easily drop SpongeBob off and come back later….. I’m saying alot of negative things about this episode, but SpongeBob does get really mad and demands he go to work. And, it actually isn't a bad thing to me. It’s nice to see SpongeBob like this like in Can You Spare a Dime? Where he gets aggressive. And, I have to admit the design of Coupe is really nice, and just like in Chatterbox Gary, the guest voice is really good. Another negative thing about this episode, though, is Patrick. He honestly acts like his Season 6-7 self where he does stupid things and messes things up because of it. Overall, I was torn on okay or meh. It’s an okay episode. The characters for the most part are bad, but other aspects are okay-good.

Rating: 6/10 (Okay)

This is a neat little episode. I sorta like what they did with Coupe, but I feel his jerkiness could have been toned down a little. It's a breath of fresh air after the very mediocre "Don't Feed the Clowns", and it had that SpongeBob charm added to it. I was torn on whether I should give this a low "A" or a high "B". I decided to give it a pretty low "A".

One of the weaker season 11 episodes. This episode is just a bunch of nothing until we get to the SpongeBob vs. Coupe sequence, which wasn't that amazing anyways.

Mediocre Episode (4.5/10)
