Episode 10: Culture Shock/F.U.N.
27 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two brilliant episodes.

"Culture Shock" Squidward hosts a talent show at the Krusty Krab where most of the acts bomb. Several hilarious moments in this episode, like when Plankton uses the show to try to steal a Krabby Patty, and when Patrick laughs uncontrollably for no reason at all. 10/10

"F.U.N." Easily better than most episodes, this episode not only has "THE FUN SONG" which it is known for, but it's actually a really funny episode. The humor in this episode in nonstop, but yes, people will argue with me if I don't say that the funniest line was Plankton's line in the fun song. 10/10

Whole Episode: 10/10
