My top favorite episode. I'm surprised that as a kid, I didn't appreciate this episode as much as I needed to. I felt that too many people were out of character because of when the fight breaks out.
But in all honesty - to me, this episode would've made a great Book-Ending to Squidward's story. It truly is his Finest Moment; for a moment his dreams actually came true. It's such a high moment that everything else with Squidward that follows is just depressing. Spongebob has little to no continuity, but I am one of those who theorize that episodes can be put into a kind of timeline. I believe that Band Geeks is probably the latest point in the series before the movie. If the show had to end at some point, this would be a High Note.
I have a feeling he won't. He's expressed his intention to NOT review something that gets universal praise. He probably won't review it on the grounds because, everyone has talked so much about it, there's really nothing left to say.
You've never heard of C.H. Greenblatt? I'll fill you in. He's a guy with one idea that could boost his career (Chowder, which you either kinda like or incredibly hate), who worked with Nick before not only to write this episode, but other Spongebob classics as well (at least to my knowledge). And then after that, his soon-to-be cartoon went through what I call the Adventure Time Syndrome. Nick turned down his idea, so it's obvious where he headed to next, and they accepted his idea.
Now where have I heard THAT before?
After Chowder ended, Greenblatt took a new approach. He's currently back at Nick making his new show Bad Seeds. And from what I heard from , it sounds rather promising.
God, not this episode. It's so overrated. The jokes aren't as funny anymore because I've been hearing it all the time for years that it gets tiring, Sweet Victory is a mediocre song. I don't get why people think this should be the best episode of all time. Yeah...no.
I loved this episode, because it was one of the few Spongebob episodes where the writers decided, "hey, let's give Squidward his moment to shine and have him lead a band full of characters from Bikini Bottom that everyone knows and loves and see how it works." This is one of the only episodes that gives the memorable characters a chance to show more character development than their usual selves. I'm just disappointed Spongebob no longer takes risks like these anymore.
Okay this might be me being immature, but you should definitely do a 1001 animations of Sailor Mouth(if you can) I'm not sure if its my teenage immaturity, but looking back at it with my mom, we had a blast watching that episode. I especially found it very funny
