The first 4 seasons were great, but then it messed up, but nowadays, it's getting back on track because the original creator returned, thumbs up for SpongeBob.

My username states the obvious, but I agree. The classic SpongeBob episodes were good to watch. And Sand Castles in the Sand was one of the good Post-Movie episodes of SpongeBob.
