I think this season is a improvement but it still isn't all there yet. I don't agree with it being Season 3 style... the current formula is a lot more crazier, loud, and fast pace than what I'm used to. That being said, it's great to see moments where SpongeBob acts like his character again, just wish we saw more of it. The animation in the recent episodes has been fantastic, it reminds me of Season 4.

14 Amazing episodes

3 episodes considered "Scumbob"
6 episodes considered "Meh"
40 episodes considered "Good"

BEST EPISODE: CopyBob DittoPants
WORST EPISODE: Squid Baby
OVERALL SCORE: GOOD SEASON

While not as good as Seasons 1-3, Season 9 has many of its own merits, especially in the second half. Note many of these scores are not set in stone, especially in the first half, but so far, I think Season 9 may be the best season the show has had in a long time.

I really like this season, from the beginning to the end. The main reason is because of the characters, like Patrick. From seasons 6-8 he became incredibly stupid, so stupid he could barely function and not in a funny way (at least for me). He was also sometimes mean, but now look at him. In almost all season 9 episodes he doesn't lack common sense, he's very likable, funny, and most importantly a good friend to SpongeBob. SpongeBob definitely changed for the better too. From seasons 6-8 he was too childish, a one dimensional character, and didn't seem to have any real personality aside from being creepy. Now he's pretty mature, has a lovable personality, and isn't trying to creep Squidward out.

Just popping in to say that, though I do love the sort of gritty, washed out aesthetic of season 1, the update to HD here looks fantastic and compliments the more outlandish visuals really well.

Season 9 is just all over the place. There is a clear division of which episodes were before and after the second movie. And yknow what, the ones before were actually spongebob episodes to me. They were straight up and down your typical post first movie episodes, hit or miss. But the second half of season 9, there's no getting around that it is just plain WEIRD. Its not even spongebob anymore! Its so confusing and moves WAY too fast and it is ALL over the place. They are quite literally just throwing in bunches and loads of characters into every episode (Squidward most prominently, its like he has to be in every show like some background character) and there is no cohesive plot minus a few absolute gems the season produced. I dont like all the craziness, weird faces, hyper paced plots,etc.There are very few slow moments that actually feel like spongebob to me, and i never thought that I would ike the old "post movie" spongebob better than i do now...
