Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I rarely watch SpongeBob Squarepants on TV, so usually the first time I see the episodes is when they're released on DVD. I read some of the poor reviews of this set and thought the show would probably be better than they suggested. I thought wrong. There really is some magic lost in this season. There are some flashes of the usual brilliance here and there but, mostly, these episodes are forgettable. They sometimes take an idea and push it to the absurdly extreme ("Night Light," "Rise and Shine," "Spy Buddies"). Also, some seem a lot shorter than the others. A good sign for the next volume is that Disc 2 is much better than Disc 1, which indicates improvement during the season. I'll definitely be checking out Volume 2.

Disc 1 (2 stars):
"Friend or Foe" (2-parter)--Mr. Krabs tells a tale of when he and Plankton were adolescent chums picked on by their classmates and how they came up with the idea to start a hamburger joint. Cute but that stupid Patchy the Pirate keeps showing up.
"The Original Fry Cook"--SpongeBob meets Mr. Krabs's first fry cook, Jim, who makes patties so good they take SB on a spiritual journey (what was in those patties, anyway? The flashbacks do look like they were set in the '60s...hmmmm). Feeling inferior, SB resigns, but Jim explains why SB is actually the best fry cook for Mr. Krabs. This episode is unrealistic. How can anyone be a better fry cook than SB? Just watch "SB v. the Patty Gadget."
"Night Light"--After reading a scary story, SB becomes afraid of the dark and uses so many night lights he summons Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy and a fiendish moth. This episode is very annoying.
"Rise and Shine"--Observe a typical Patrick morning. This episode is totally lame! We all know Patrick is a moron but come on!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but the directors got bored August 9, 2007
I loved the earlier seasons, and I'm ok with this new one, but the new episodes are not as clever as the first episodes in the first seasons. The new ones arn't as funny, the story lines arn't as good, and they have gotten WAY more childish, sadly. Also, my problem is that the new episodes have these stupid sing along songs much to frequently. SB used to be like a child/immature adult show. Now it's faded into one of those new Nick show types for babies. It's better than any other cartoon on Nick, but season 5, or maybe 6, will probably be the ending for the SB franchise.

When I buy the seasons, one by one, I will make sure to get this season because I love the show as a whole. But this season is definetly not as superior as seasons 1, 2, or 3.

3.0 out of 5 stars READ THIS! July 2, 2008
A Kid's Review
Friend or Foe 4 out of 5 stars: It's the history of the Krabs/Plankton rivalry! I thought this episode was interesting, for example, did anyone else know that if it weren't for Plankton the Krabby Patty would have never been invented? I would have givin it 5 stars if Patchy wasn't in it.The Original Fry Cook 2 out of 5 stars : The Krusty Krab's original stops by and Spongebob knows he's worse than the original and gives Mr.Krabs a reggonenation. No one`s a better fc than spongebob. Night Light 2 out of 5 stars : Spongebob reads a scary book before bedtime and then everything seems spookier. So, he buys every night light possible to light up the room. Then, Patrick, Mermaid Man, Barnacle Boy, and an evil fly all come in sometime during the episode. It was kinda stupid. Rise and Shine 1 out of 5 stars: This episode is Patrick's morning routine. Two words to describe it are 'boring' and 'lame'. Waiting 2 out of 5 stars : Spongebob sends in box tops and waits and waits and waits for his free toy. This isn't a very good episode, I would give it 1 out of 5 stars if there weren't some funny lines involving Patrick. Fungus Among Us 1 out of 5 stars : Spongebob gets a fungus and gives it to everyone in Bikini Bottom. One word gross! Spy Buddies 3 out of 5 stars : Mr. Krabs sends Spongebob and Patrick to spy on Plankton. The ending's a little to much. Boat Smarts 2 out of 5 stars : Mrs. Puff narrates an instructional video with a driver with boat smarts ( Squidward ) and one without ( Spongebob) Good Ol' Whatshisname 3 out of 5 stars: Mr.Krabs holds a contest between Squidward and Spongebob: whoever learns more customer's names wins a prize. The idea for this episode is really good, but it had an awful script. New Digs 2 out out of 5 stars: Spongebob moves into the Krusty Krab. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Sponge September 7, 2007
When it comes to cartoons these days, the classics seem to be often overlooked, but for Nicekeloden, they've really brought out the best in animation from shows like Jimmy Neutron, The Fairly Odd Parents, and especially Spongebob Squarepants. Nevertheless, the cartoons keep showing just how much fun the show has maintained its joy for so many viewers young and old alike. The past several seasons have brought out some great moments for our favorite freinds from Bikini Bottom, and with its latest round of shows finally on DVD, it is sure to please even more joy for Spongebob fans.

Spongebob Squarepants Season 5, Volume 1 is the first half of Spongebob and his friends Patrick, Squidward through some of the most interesting cartoons ever. The DVD has been remastered well, and includes some of the latest chapters in Spongebob's life including Slimy dancing, where Spongebob, and Squidward enter a dance competition with Squidward placing himself inside of Spongebob, and tries to dance to win the trophy, after being originally rejected for the contest. Another great episode, Friend Or Foe?, looks back at the origin of why Plankton and Mr. Krabs originally became rivals, after being rejected for food at a local take out joint, and try to develop what becomes the krabby patty. Although the episodes miss out at times with what Spongebob had sucessfully made then, considering there are more cartoons at a shorter time, they are still a lot of fun to watch.

All in all, I loved watching a lot of the new shows Spongebob Squarepants have aired, and they are just a true delight. But, some newcomers might be a bit dissapointed, hoping for more shows like the previous complete 1st, 2nd and 3rd seasons brought out on DVD. Still, if you haven't seen Spongebob yet on Nickelodeon, you may want to watch these and enjoy the laughter.
