  • Big Pink Loser is TOP TIER. Never ceases to entertain.
  • Why isn't Band Geeks top tier? Let's be honest, the fanserviceable ending is indeed memorable, with Squidward triumphing thanks to Patrick's alpha sunglasses. Thing is there's an episode BEFORE the fanservice, and to be honest, it's not as solid as Big Pink Loser. (I'm also not a fan of glam metal, but still)
  • Comic Walk playing when Spongebob hugs mustached Squidward in Squidville sounds AMAZING.
  • Squid's Day Off, Shanghaied and No Free Rides are true classics. I wish I could put The Fry Cook Games in the top tier, it may even be better than Big Pink Loser, but that ending is sloppy.
  • Pressure's pacing is S1 kind of slow, but thankfully its content keeps it from becoming a meh.
  • I'm Your Biggest Fanatic could easily be diminished by an unlikeable Kevin, but thankfully he always gets punished and I'm okay with it.
  • Pearl gets far better episodes in the post-movie era. Bossy Boots is middle of the road.
  • Never cared for Squirrel Jokes and Survival of the Idiots.
  • Patrick's inner machinations of his mind is the only good joke of The Secret Box.
  • The more I watch Something Smells, the less I enjoy it. Way too repetitive.
  • Bubble Buddy content has always been mediocre. What was the point of bringing this character back in the following seasons?
  • I wish I liked Krusty Love more. Spongebob is great and all, but gags are a bit weak.
  • Dumped and I'm With Stupid aren't that terrible. More like suicidal: the former is way too melodramatic, the latter gets too carried away with Patrick and his fake parents' obliviousness.
  • On second thought, neither of them is the weakest S2 episode. Dumped has a decent ending, I'm with Stupid goes with a strong start... Grandma's Kisses has got NOTHING OF IT. I actually tend to avoid this episode, because it's utterly annoying: Squidward is surprisingly annoying, Patrick is oddly annoying, Spongebob's granny is annoyingly asinine and it's even quite boring. It's got Spongebob crying like a hydrant and that's all. In fact, I might actually loathe this, it's bottom season 2.

Additional Comments:
I rewatch this season all the time, this and season 3 are easily SpongeBob's best seasons. Choosing my favorite episodes here was really difficult, because so many of them are just so so good.

If you've seen me post before, you may know that I do not like Dumped or I'm With Stupid. I just don't. Those episodes are really frustrating for me. I won't call them bad, and they're above tolerable because there are aspects I find enjoyable, but still, these are some of the low points of early SpongeBob.

Season 2 Score: 3.95 (Good)

Thoughts:
What a great season, even the worst episode here was just kind of bland and too dramatic, but more importantly, the great episodes here were really great, I actually don’t know whether I prefer this or 3, but both are really good seasons, if there’s any season you should check out if you want to know why SpongeBob is still such a popular show 15-20 years after its best days, check out Season 2.

Season 2 is a great, hilarious, and classic season overall. I think it is one of the strongest in terms of writing. I feel this season is quite a bit stronger than the first season as the show and crew grew more. This season really nailed the writing and comedy. The episodes were on fire with the jokes in this season. I feel this season started to focus a bit more on comedy compared to the first. The animation also got a significant upgrade. The series transitioned from Cel Animation to Digital Ink and Paint. And it looks great for the most part and holds up quite well. There are versions of the episodes where SpongeBob looks pretty "pale" though... I don't really know the story behind that. And maybe a few of the earlier episodes look slightly rough around the edges with their digital ink and paint. But besides all that, the new animation format looks great, and the series transitioned into this new format quite well.

My Episode Rankings (my opinion):
  1. Dying for Pie (THE BEST)
  2. Imitation Krabs (THE BEST)
  3. Pressure (THE BEST)
  4. Squidville (THE BEST)
  5. Squirrel Jokes (THE BEST)
  6. Shanghaied (THE BEST)
  7. Band Geeks (THE BEST)
  8. Wormy (THE BEST)
  9. Patty Hype (THE BEST)
  10. Christmas Who? (THE BEST)
  11. Squid's Day Off (THE BEST)
  12. Artist Unknown (THE BEST)
  13. Frankendoodle (THE BEST)
  14. Survival of the Idiots (THE BEST)
  15. I'm Your Biggest Fanatic (GOOD)
  16. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III (GOOD)
  17. Bubble Buddy (GOOD)
  18. Welcome to the Chum Bucket (GOOD)
  19. No Free Rides (GOOD)
  20. Graveyard Shift (GOOD)
  21. Big Pink Loser (GOOD)
  22. Sailor Mouth (GOOD)
  23. The Fry Cook Games (GOOD)
  24. Krusty Love (GOOD)
  25. I'm With Stupid (GOOD)
  26. Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm (GOOD)
  27. The Smoking Peanut (GOOD)
  28. Grandma's Kisses (GOOD)
  29. Jellyfish Hunter (GOOD)
  30. Squid on Strike (GOOD)
  31. Life of Crime (GOOD)
  32. Something Smells (GOOD)
  33. Bossy Boots (GOOD)
  34. Prehibernation Week (PRETTY GOOD)
  35. Gary Takes a Bath (PRETTY GOOD)
  36. Your Shoe's Untied (PRETTY GOOD)
  37. Secret Box (PRETTY GOOD)
  38. Procrastination (PRETTY GOOD)

My Overall Season Ranking: GREAT
