Okay season. I could tell that improvement is in the air for spongebob, but many episodes of the season are pretty bland and need some more flavor. The terrible episodes were not as terrible as the episodes in seasons 6 and 7, but I still hated them. A few of the episodes are underrated (Are you happy Now?, Face Freeze!, Bubble Troubles). The good episodes ranged from being just decent to being excellent. Overall, this season is pretty forgettable and not living up to the excellence that Seasons 1-4 had.

GOOD SEASON

I think this season is a big improovement over seasons 6 and 7. I recently rewatched these episodes and I overall, there are only 10 episodes I didn't like throughout this whole season. I can't say this is a really good season. A lot of the Good episodes fall closer too the Okay side.

Meh Season
(Overall, this season is definitely a mixed bag. The good episodes aren't that good, and the bad episodes are really bad. The meh episodes had potential, and most of them are closer to good than bad, but overall, this season is just somewhat forgettable. Better than seasons 6 and 7, but not quite to the show's original standards.)

Mostly a middle of the road season. Very few episodes stand out much in either direction. Better than 6/7 but not quite up to par with 9

I agree with you on Face Freeze, Pinhead. In my opinion, it's the most shallow episode of the show with the least substance. At least episodes like A Pal For Gary are structured well and have substance.

Anyway, from what I know and from what I've seen of the season. Once I've watched the whole season back-to-back, I'll do a real review.

Best: The Hot Shot
Runners up: Drive Thru, A Friendly Game, It's A SpongeBob Christmas!
Worst: Are You Happy Now?
Runners up: Fiasco!, Pet Sitter Pat, Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom, Face Freeze!
Guilty Pleasure: Face Freeze!
Underrated: Drive Thru, A Friendly Game
Overrated: Fiasco!
Overhated: Demolition Doofus

Keep in mind I haven't seen Hello Bikini Bottom, Planet of the Jellyfish, Treats!, or a lot of season 8 episodes. And most of the ones that I've seen I can't remember much of.
