It started a few minutes ago, it's pretty good. Even the Patchy segments are pretty funny. It's a collaboration of all the writers and it's widescreen, so it's a real treat. I like the stop-motion opening, but the music wasn't thrilling. Either way, it's great so far.

This special exceeded all my expectations. It was very well-handled and the writers obviously put great effort into it. This is probably the best SpongeBob-related anything I've seen since the mighty Atlantis SquarePantis. I loved all the flashbacks and the songs in this special. And because it was in HD, it looked very phenomenal animation-wise. And of course, more important than anything else, it was funny. VERY funny. And of course, making ANY special into a Patchy special just makes it that much more awesome. The part where he gets swallowed by a whale was pretty 'meh', but I loved the rest of it, especially the big moment of him with SpongeBob, and of course, the big guest appearances by LeBron James, Tina Fey, Robin Williams, Will Ferrell, Pink, and that... other guy were great. The only thing missing from this special was an appearance by Tom Kenny himself, but at least he got a mention, so that's fine.

Overall, I give this special a big 9.5/10. :devil:

Wow, it's only 6 o'clock here, it won't be on for another two hours, but what I'm reading so far from East Coast viewers seems pretty positive.

Well, what we've seen from the video was the entire scene, minus a tiny bit at the end
that revealead it was only a play
.

It was alright, I love how everyone reacted to, "Remember when me and Sandy got married?"

Squidward: WHAT?!
Mr. Krabs: NO!
Patrick: I'M FREAKING OUT!

I...didn't love it, no, it was good, in fact, almost great, and I know it's one of those episodes that I'll want to go back and watch, but I've never been a big fan of Patchy and his subplot was just meh. But I loved the clips Patchy showed inside the whale, I laughed so hard at the "Squidward" show thing. Anyway, it was definitely a special episode, they could have done many things way better, but I liked it a lot, not as much as I was hopping but still.

Good, very funny. I loved muscly Patrick hitting Squidward..in fact, the Squidwrad abuse was hilarious :devil:
I think I give the eppie a 9.1 but my opinnion will change after I rewatch it, hope it's to the best.

Can someone please give me the entire episode description in detail in spoilers? I missed the first two minutes, and my brother was talking too loud for me to hear it.

Thankz! :]

Well I was disappointed. I think I set my expectations too high. I did like the little other theme songs and old cartoon of spongebob though.

  • Meh-ish Opening
  • 45-minute commercial breaks :p
  • WAAAAY more Patchy than normal--in my opinion, too much
  • Not nearly as many flashbacks as I'd thought there would be and the plot of trying to escape via the vent system quickly gets really old
  • They had, what, 65 minutes of airtime? And only about 15 or 20 of it was SpongeBob, it seemed to me, I'm sure there was more than that, but there was way too little SB for my taste
  • Ending was...meh-ish -- AT BEST
  • 5TH overhyped special IN A ROW
6.5/10

Sorreh to bring down the mood, but, I just didn't feel this was all that great. It could have been so much better in so many ways.

It was good enough. Some great quotes. I didn't know who that guy with the weird accent was. When he was talking to Patchy he also talked with a pirate accent. Who was that? Last name Ferguson. That Scurvy song by Pink is in my head. Pretty funny overall. Lots of commercials though.
