"Don't make me have a flashback."
SpongeBob SquarePants: Truth Or Square compiles five episodes from Season 7…
• "Truth Or Square"
Wow…This is without a doubt the lamest SpongeBob episode I have ever seen. It's pretty much all filler, extremely boring, the story goes nowhere, with little action or mania. In fact, nothing interesting happens at all. The Patchy interludes and reliance on cameos merely draws attention to the episode's lack of substance.
• "Porous Pockets"
• "Choir Boys"
• "Krusty Krushers"
• "The Card"
I've been harping about the decline of SpongeBob in my reviews of previous releases. However, without a doubt, the episodes here are the weakest I've seen. The show has lost not just its sense of humor, but the manic and hyperactive energy as well. Now it's simply tired and boring.
As is typical with SpongeBob releases, the full screen video is flawless, rich, and colourful. The stereo audio is clear and crisp.
There are two extras: "Behind-the-Scenes of the SpongeBob Opening" featurette which describes the creation of the special 3-dimensional opening sequence for "Truth or Square," and karaoke music videos for "We've Got Scurvy" (by Pink), "Campfire Sing Song," and "F.U.N."
That's all I've got to say. The End.
