I find the newer plots lame, and the link to whatever face he makes wasn't working, so I'm going to assume it's that face where he seems to close his cheeks over the corners of his mouth, which pisses me off whenever I see it, and is usually accompanied by a really annoying song that you know means the episode is going to be stupid.
I also hate the flanderization of characters. Spongebob goes from lovable but kindhearted idiot who bugs his neighbor Squidward in a good way (if that makes sense) to a creepy stalker who spies on Squidward and even changed the inside of his house into an exact replica of Squidward's once. Patrick goes from a lovable idiot to an imbecile who ruins just about everything he touches and whom natural selection should've weeded out by now. Sandy goes from Texan athlete braniac to Texan stereotype know-it-all. Krabs goes from savvy, if penny-pinching, businessman to a coldhearted Scrooge who gets away with whatever scam he ever runs. Pearl goes from loud, annoying spoiled brat to an even louder, more annoying spoiled brat. Squidward goes from self-proclaimed artist who wants his neighbors to quit bugging him to being roped into just about everything Spongebob does and is punished for it. Plankton goes from ambitious, conniving supergenius to an ambitious, conniving idiot who relies on his pain-in-the-ass computer-wife to make his plans. Karen (Plankton's computer-wife, as every later episode will remind you when she appears) goes from stationary, slightly sarcastic computer to mobile, annoying, nagging wife stereotype.
Lastly, the undercurrent where Spongebob is gay for Squidward weirds me out. Normally, I have no problem with people being gay, but Spongebob could be a lot less creepy about it.
That, my friend, is why I hate the newer episodes of Spongebob.
