I think it was because it was named #1 in that poll that this episode has all the hate that it does.
its underrated 8/10 for me
Same here. Only one thing: the idea of the condos was sort of funny, especially the music during that part.Milkmaidman said:As predictable as it is, Karate Island is my least favorite Season 4 episode. Let's start with the plot-TERRIBLE. Spongebob becomes King of Karate, then becomes an arrogant (dolphin noise). Then we learn this was a scam to buy real estate. WHAT?!?!?!?!?! ARE YOU SERIOUS MR. MIYAGI! That's another celebrity cameo in the dumpster. I can't stand when SB acts arrogant, so I can't stand this episode. Also, the Four Floors of Fear-WHERE WAS THE FIGHTING? Even though he and Sandy are well matched, he acts he's miles better than Sandy. Man, that was annoying. The humor-wait, what humor? Anyways, I hated Spongebob in this episode, I hated Sandy, too. I also hated Master Udon. If all that's not bad enough, this earned the #1 ON THE BDE COUNTDOWN? No. Just No. So anyways, in my opinion, this is the worst season 4 episode and the sixth worst overall.
This reminds me of another episode where Spongebob gets arbitrarily egotistical- "As Seen On TV."Popeye Q. Krabs said:Not great but not completely bad. Just too anticlimactic and didn't have enough funny jokes to make it work on top of SpongeBob acting like a jerk for barely any reason. the concept was clearly there and interesting in itself but the execution of it left much to be desired.The fight scenes were kinda cool and I guess the real estate thing was an attempt to have some kind of a joke here but other than that, really forgettable. 5/10
