I'm not sure what to think about this. It was just decent, though I wasn't a fan of the Patrick scenes. Kaz making him unbearable once again. There were some funny lines like when SpongeBob is arresting the girl selling cookies (which I'm pretty sure Karl Hadrika did those storyboards, because he did work on this episode according to the credits). It was alright so I guess I could watch it again.

4/10
 
Let me get this out of my system and say that this episode wasn't good, but OKAY. Patrick wasn't funny and served nothing to the plot but to be as stupid as he can be just for comic relief. SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs arresting people as playing cops at this point isn't funny anymore. With the cons out the way, time for some positives. HEY, THE TATTLE TALE STRANGLER MAKE A SMALL CAMEO AS A PICTURE! That's pretty much all I have to say about this one, not my favorite of the episodes we've got this week. 7.5/10.

Nicely *handled* episode, for the most part. The storyline stacked itself nicely*, and the expected Plankton-bashing wasn't the usual gooey mess we've come to expect (for the most part), *plus* it wasn't overdone. The humor was hit-and-miss, at least for me (fake-coppery just isn't my forte; Spongebob's jokes about it are).

Patrick being drunk on ice cream is priceless; the "rain from the toilet bowl" scene was better (and more innocent-feeling) than it should have; the "jailhouse ice cream" scene was neither, though alright by the plot (as it lets Patrick roam free). (Nitpicking, but at least remove the underwear.)

Overall, 'plain' good, or just above OK. ~6.75-7/10.


* As in, Spongebob and Patrick's side events with Krabs and Plankton building up to the evidence room scuffle. It isn't a one-way street in terms of plotting, as per usual; it's a reverse fork-in-the-road. Also, it's nice that they let the 'interrogation' scene pay off for the ending.
 
This episode was okay. It was moderately enjoyable but the plot felt a bit all over the place and the cartoon-y humor was of the hyperactive kind this time around. Still enjoyable enough I guess. Also, what an odd use of My Leg lol.

Not an amazing episode but not the worst episode either. Better than Plankton Paranoia and Library Cards but not Shopping List.

Plankton Paranoia is a mile times better than Call the Cops. The ending in Call the Cops was absolutely terrible and Patrick wasn't funny.

I don't like that ending either and Patrick's role in that episode I don't mind.

I don’t like this episode. Patrick was annoying and the episode is too hyperactive for me. Also there’s some parts that are just gross.

Which parts did you find gross?

If it weren’t for Library Cards, this would be my least favourite of the current SpongeBomb. Patrick gets pretty annoying here and takes screentime away from the interesting Mr Krabs and SpongeBob plots. I was rather shocked that they got away with using such a strong 4-letter word though.

What strong four letter word are you talking about?

I quite liked this episode, yes it was very hyper and such, but it had a lot of funny moments, and Patrick; though not necessary to the episode, wasn't unlikeable
 
I thought this episode was okay, and I must agree with what SBRoxMan said, it is pretty hyper, even more hyper than regular Season 11 SpongeBob. :blink: It was fun, but still a pretty average episode in my book overall.
