In contrast to my previous blog, let's now focus on good episodes created after the first movie. Despite fan consensus being that the show suffered a decline in quality after the 2004 movie, that's certainly not to say there weren't several good episodes released since then, especially in the last two seasons with Hillenburg back.
There were many episodes from season 4 and season 5 that I enjoyed. Their plots and humor made them feel like pre-movie episodes.

SB-129 (14a), Walking Small (18b), Dying for Pie (24a), Pre-Hibernation Week (27a), Life of Crime (27b), Christmas Who? (28), Shanghaied (33a), The Fry Cook Games (39b), Squid on Strike (40a), Krusty Towers (69a)
