"Aren't you getting a little tired of this, Plankton?"
Hey, what's going on? I stated at the end of my review of SpongeBob SquarePants: Triton's Revenge that I "vow not to review another SpongeBob DVD. I mean it this time. Honest." What can I tell you? I don't really know what to say. Maybe my memory is going. Maybe I unconsciously want the show to redeem itself. Or perhaps I enjoy wasting my time watching this dreck. Who knows? No matter the answer, this release did nothing to change my view of this once funny show.
SpongeBob SquarePants: The Great Patty Caper is a collection of seven episodes from Season 7 of the now quite, very, totally exhausted, tired and burned out SpongeBob SquarePants franchise.
• "The Great Patty Caper"
• "Growth Spout"
• "Stuck In The Wringer"
• "Someone's In The Kitchen With Sandy"
• "The Inside Job"
• "Greasy Buffoons"
• "Model Sponge"
As is typical with SpongeBob releases, the full screen video is flawless, rich and colourful. The stereo audio is clear and crisp.
The extras are three shorts: "Spongeholmes," "The Porter Reveal," and "Gumshoe Bob."
Wow, this is probably the most boring set of SpongeBob episodes I've ever seen. In past reviews, I have remarked about the decline of the show. Specifically, I found the hyperactive series increasingly annoying and lacking any humor beyond juvenile comedy. This time around, the episodes just drag. The energy is gone. There are a few gross gags. The storylines have been seen many times before. There is a palpable weariness and going-through-the-motions feel to everything.
I think the series has completely run out of gas, but Season 8 is on the air. Do as you will.
