I actually like this episode for many good reasons.

1. Great visuals: The 3D backgrounds was used really well.

2. Nice Callbacks: When SpongeBob was battling the virus in Karen's memory, we got actual screenshots of past Plankton themed episodes such as Plankton's Army and Welcome To The Chum Bucket.

3. Sorta Alright Humor: Some jokes were pretty good. I loved how Plankton tells Mr. Krabs it's none of his business when Karen trashes the Krusty Krab and then Mr. Krabs says "This is my business" which is the Krusty Krab itself since it's his job.

Overall, solid episode. 9.5/10

Another visually impressive episode, this season has seen quite a few of those(i'm sure Goons on the Moon also won't dissapoint in that department) I liked Karen's version of Plankton and Spongebob way of defeating the virus(though I am surprised Plankton didn't try to take the patty at the end).

After so many middling episodes, and ones that are good but not great, this is another guaranteed Season 11 highlight. The animation was incredible (a bit Gumball-esque at points, but that’s not a bad thing), the jokes were spot-on (“mind your own business”, “this is my business!”), they still made Karen a hilarious character by making her delirious instead of sick, and the memory bank was such a cool location. I could see a scene like it coming a mile away, but I was still blown away by how many recogniseable Karen moments were put in.

Kaz still has Pizazz!

Oh my gosh. This is without a doubt the best Spongebob Season 11 episode.

The CGI in this episode is the best CGI in Spongebob, and a lot of episode clips were shown inside the memories, This episode is the greatest thing to ever come out of modern Spongebob. (FINAL RANK: 10/10)

I'm curious what you loved about this episode that has to do with the writing, I'd be nervous to put too much weight into nice visuals and nostalgic callbacks.

This episode is decent. I liked the plot and animation, but there wasn't that much humor.

Good Episode (7/10)
