is this actually "time of the month" with a different title? :sbfunny:

Seriously though, discuss this episode here. I think this episode will be about Mr Krabs discovering that Squidward's ink is drinkable so he adds it to the menu. It would be interesting.

It was repetitive with bits like the megaphones continuing the trend this week after My Leg being shouted yesterday, Patrick continued to be awful, and this rivals One Coarse Meal in terms of "let's spend the entire episode scaring another character when it isn't funny at all". I should not be getting One Coarse Meal vibes from the newer episodes. This was an utter trainwreck and is easily in my bottom 25.

Hottest SpongeBob episode of all-time. Did you see the way Squidward made ink from his nose? And let's not forget how everyone was drinking it! It gave a strange, but wonderful feeling inside of me! I think Bunny Hunt found its new rival as the best season 11 episode! 10/10! But even that is an understatement!

....animation was great, I'll give it that.

Otherwise this was downright disturbing. You guys thought One Coarse Meal was bad....this might be worse.
Patrick in particular is awful in this episode, psychologically torturing Squidward just to get his ink. The jokes boil down to "PATRICK IS DUMB" and "FUNNY FACE EXPRESSION", which makes for a really unpleasant experience on top of the creepy plot.
If yesterday was one of the best of the series, this is certainly one of the worst. And up to this point, I've enjoyed pretty much all of the new episodes.

Unironically this episode sucked really bad but One Coarse Meal is still way worse. We don't see Squidward actually go through depression and give up on life.

Lmao at people comparing this to One Course Meal. People did the same thing with Out of the Picture, even though they are nowhere near close. 

 

However, I can't make heads or tails of this episode. It feels like Pat the Horse (an episode I already dislike) on steroids.

 

I can't give the episode a score, it's just too...weird. I need to rewatch to gage my thoughts.

 

This season has been an acid trip of insanity (this, Cuddle E Hugs, Theres a Sponge in My Soup, Pat the Horse, and Bunny Hunt are the some of the strangest episodes of the series.)

 

Ready for the memes and copypastas

 

Edit: I saw it again, and I feel like it is reminiscent of Pat the Horse, nothing was funny, and Squid torture rivals Bunny Hunt levels of infuriating. Still lmao at people calling it one of the worst. I can agree that it is poor, but explain how this is worse than something like Smoothe Jazz or Squid Baby. I also like how Bunny Hunt gets a free pass because of a meme, when it does everything this does, but worse.

 

Edit: I'd score it 3/10 Hoping Kaz pulls himself together for tomorrows episode. I just think that Kaz can't write Patrick.

I decided to give this a watch, and uh...

...this was legit disturbing. The great lengths that Patrick goes with scaring Squidward, locking him up in a prison-like chamber away from the outside world is, not a pretty sight.

This is probably going to be in my Top 25 worst. Jesus christ.

1/10

EDIT: I rewatched this episode and... oh boy, is it bad. There's nothing good I can say about this one. I can't give it anything other than a 2/10; it's a HORRIBLE episode. First one after the 2nd movie, too. I'm a bit afraid of how tomorrow's episode will turn out.

Was Squidward's ink a metaphor for a bloody nose?

Nah, nosebleeds aren't like that and squids legitimately give off ink. I'm guessing it was the nose because that allowed for visual flexibility.

 I also like how Bunny Hunt gets a free pass because of a meme, when it does everything this does, but worse.

Meme aside. Bunny Hunt was cartoony slapstick. Seeing Patrick scare the heck out of Squidward, locking him up, is just kind of disturbing and unpleasant to watch. I don't think it's as bad as OCM but it's still really unenjoyable. I wanted to meme this one but I think this might be too bad to be memed.

 

Also the bunny was an animal just trying to get food, Patrick was consciously mentally tormenting Squidward.

Slapstick or not, Squid's treatment in that episode is similar to here, if not worse. His house gets destroyed, garden is ravaged, and he goes insane.

 

Patrick was bad here, but he has more of a point here than Smoothe Jazz. I can't see this as one of the worst when most of 6-8 can do worse. I can go to a list of Spongebob epps in Season 6 on Wikipedia, and have more than enough material to prove that this isn't one of the worst.

Alright, jokes aside, time to post my thoughts on this episode.

It was bad. That's right. I'm finally saying this about a season 11 episode. This. Episode. Was. Bad. I don't think I've ever disliked a SpongeBob episode this much in a long time. It's such a shame too because I've loved how innovative and unique the season has been compared to other seasons. There has been a few fairly weak ones like Fun-Sized Friends and Stuck on the Roof, but this right here broke the streak. I was even interested in this episode when the title was revealed only for it to turn out that the title alone was a red flag as to what this was going to be about. It literally left me kind of despondent once it was over. Now, I probably would've given it at least a 6/10 if it was executed better, even if it did involve everyone drinking Squidward's essence, because I've tolerated such things from this show lately. But enough rambling. Let's get into the actual episode.

This episode has some positives. I honestly thought some of the facial expressions were too hilarious to not laugh at, and the casual exchange between Patrick and Squidward at the beginning was nice, and I did like some of the visuals and variations on the running gag, and that's about it, which isn't a good sign. Now on to the problems. Again, I personally don't mind the concept of Bikini Bottomites drinking ink as a beverage since it's expected. A majority of the episode lacks any sort of substance and basically boils down to Patrick scaring Squidward and making him shoot ink out of his nose, which is supposed to look cartoony and funny, but I didn't find any of it funny this time around. It just looked unsettling. My biggest gripe with this episode is Patrick. He's awful in this episode and has practically hit a new low in his list of unlikable appearances. He's definitely not Yours, Mine and Mine levels of bad here, but he's still out-of-character in this episode. The fact that he's actively going out of his way to scare Squidward and take advantage of his ability to ink was just uncomfortable to sit through. I know Patrick is dumb and doesn't know any better, but that doesn't excuse his actions here. Now, I wouldn't exactly compare him to Mr. Krabs in One Coarse Meal like some people do, but this is still easily one of his worst performances. It beats seeing him being a huge jerk, but it's worse than him being stupid and ruining everything. Also, I didn't like the ending, either. I already knew there was going to be a poor attempt at a "comedy ending" when SpongeBob and Patrick gave Squidward those cookies with spiders eggs. This is my new least favorite episode of season 11, and it's definitely Bottom 20 material for me, which is quite a shocker since I usually like episodes from this season. It probably would have been better off as a short rather than 11-minutes.

My overall rating for this episode is a 2/10. I really hope the remainder of this season will be way better than this.

I was really confused at the immediate negative reaction for this episode. When High Sea Diving aired a month ago and still hasn't reached 1000 views on its discussion topic, this took me completely off guard. So I watched "Ink Lemonade"...

 

Jesus Christ I need a day to process how colossally this ink stained. This was abhorrent.

I wasn't fully paying attention to the episode, I was just thinking about time of the month memes, I'll rewatch this to see if I hate it a lot.

Disappointed that the plot is not how I seriously thought it would be.

And I thought Sportz and Code Yellow were bad. This episode was terrible mainly because of Patrick being so OOC there. How could he scare Squidward repeatedly so that he gets more ink? Even at the beginning I didn't like Patrick's "dumber than usual" behaviour. I also didn't like the megaphone gag. It was too repetitive and unnecessary. This episode looked interesting judging by the plot and it even made me think that it would be a meme because of the "time of the month" jokes but at this point, it doesn't deserve to be ironically enjoyed. This episode honestly ruined this meme for me.

I give it a 3/10. Biggest disappointment since The Fish Bowl.

Update: I feel like this episode is worse every time I think about it, so I changed my rating to a 3/10.

Yet another disappointing post-sequel episode. I thought that the Clam Whisperer was bad...this hits a new low tbh. It's basically season 7 Patrick bad. I am not joking. 

 

and it sucks because Ink Lemonade sounded promising and I wanted to get a "time of the month" joke out of it. But nope. We instead get 11 minutes of unfunny dreck. I give it a 2.5/10. Season 11 has been hit-or-miss for me, and I hope that the episodes at least don't get as bad as this one.

tmw an episode is so bad (most likely) that I'm editing out my meme because it doesn't even work in this scenario.
