Facing the BSOD
Anyway, this season is a definite improvement over the last 3 seasons. Even with the bad episodes like Squid Baby and Little Yellow Book, all the gems in the season, like Plankton's Pet, Patrick! The Game, and Pull up a Barrel, make watching all the episodes totally worth it.
What I like about the season: Many gems in the season (both in 9.1 and 9.2), improved animation, jokes in some episodes are pretty hilarious, less grossout, and the character's themselves are pretty good in a nutshell.
What I didn't like about the season: Pacing problems in both 9.1 and 9.2, some of the stories were not that interesting, some eppies can be bland at times, and filler can be a problem here

Favorite episode: Plankton's Pet. It was one of the cutest post-movie episodes out there, there were some pretty funny jokes, the story was executed well, all without looking too overwhelming. It also shows Plankton's soft side that wasn't really shown before.
Least favorite: Squid Baby. I am not telling the reasons here, but people can guess why.

Good season, but close to a great season. Season 9a was a definite improvement over seasons 6-8, but there were a couple terrible and meh-pisodes, the meh-pisodes just being boring and forgettable. The terrible episodes were very terrible, but there were only 2, so that's a plus. Season 9b was great, so far, so good, with no episodes scoring less than good. It will never be the same as pre-movie Spongebob, but that is okay for me because the animation is improving and the episodes are really enjoyable.

Good Season
(9A is definitely very meh to me. Most of the episodes are meh, most of the good episodes aren't that good, and the bad episodes are very bad, but fortunately, there are only three. 9B so far is pretty good, with only 1 meh and the rest all being good. Overall, the whole season gets good.)
