People might call this a underrated episode, but for me, it's underhated. Pretty much everything about this episode is generic, boring, pathetic, and all the jokes are lame. I did like some gags like the onions and very few expressions, but the rest didn't make me laugh, they're just lame or plain filler. Patrick is very unnecessary to appear in this episode because he has no point to be here. He is meant to be a running gag, but like I said, the jokes in the episode are lame. Also, the first act went on too long, every character now feels bland, The climax was too heartwarming and the montage made me feel very bored, pretty much the two things that this episode is recycling F.U.N's plot. All I have to say is that this episode fails to be funny and focuses on becoming like F.U.N and continuosly be dull.
Another episode I'm not too fond of. Yikes, we're having a lot of those in Season 3. It's not that bad; it has decent humor, but, like with Club SpongeBob, this episode bores me. Plus Mr. Krabs is kind of annoying here.
Ranking so far:
1. The Algae's Always Greener (B)
2. My Pretty Seahorse (C)
3. Club SpongeBob (C)
4. SpongeGuard on Duty (C)
I sure hope Just One Bite can bring these ratings up...
(OLD REVIEW, NEW REVIEW BELOW)
Plot: (9/10): The idea of SpongeBob getting a horse has a lot of comedic and interesting potential. And for the most part, I do really like it. SpongeBob faking he returned the seahorse to the wild is good, as well as the Patrick scenes. The only faulty part about it is when SpongeBob was insulting Mystery for no reason other then to get rid of him.
Humor: (5/5): This episode is really funny. The "I can't find the coin slot!" joke is one of my all-time favorites. I also find it really funny where Mystery ate all of Mr. Krabs' money and he hunts Mystery down for it.
Visuals: (9.5/10): Nothing really looked ugly or too gross in this episode, just looks like a regular pre-movie episode.
Really like this one. The plot is nice, and the humor is spot on. Patrick is super funny, and the "Who put this bowl of onions here?" gag was pretty funny. I also like SpongeBob and Mystery playing together, that scene was nice. Overall, gud episode.
The Algaes Always Greener: (10/10)
My Pretty Seahorse: (9/10)
Club SpongeBob: (8.5/10)
SpongeGuard On Duty: (6.5/10)
