I liked it, "Spongebob has passed away" comment made me laugh for some reason when I saw it on Twitter before watching the episode, the "you already know where this is going" card and the "late" slips parts were the highlights, the ending was rushed. but it was good.
This episode is my favorite of the season so far. I was very pleasantly surprised the whole way through, as I wasn’t keen when I first read the episode description. It’s rare nowadays that I watch an episode immediately after seeing it the first time, but this was one of those episodes!
SpongeTom was one of my favorite gags of the episode. Though the late slip montage was great too.
the episode was pretty enjoyable, and had some nice gags. the part where patrick smashed the clock felt a bit mean-spirited but not as much as seasons 6/7 patrick was. the late slips were also sort of irritating but. again, not like the middle seasons. the part where everyone freaked out about spongebob being “dead” was super funny, and i really enjoyed it, and the part when spongebob sets up all of the alarm clocks to get him to work on time and cook the patties was genius, it was like a whole rube goldfish machine. and the ending with patrick fixing the clock was just cute. really enjoyable, and a nice ending to a great episode. 8/10
