Storyline

Carly hosts her own home-grown web show, iCarly. She lives with her twenty-something brother/guardian Spencer and produces her Web casts from a makeshift third-floor loft studio. Grappling with adolescence, she never aimed to gain fame as a rising star/underground celebrity to kids. As events unfold in the pilot, it all happens by accident when a teacher puts her in charge of the school talent show. She and her sassy best bud Sam turn the audition process into a show, which Carly's tech savvy smitten friend Freddie tapes - including their hilarious banter and great chemistry - and posts on the Web without telling the girls. The on-line audience clamors for more, and a pop phenomenon blooms, with Carly and sidekick Sam's regular Web casts ultimately featuring everything from comedy sketches and talent contests to interviews, recipes, and problem-solving.

Trivia

The original title of the show was "Starstruck" and the plot followed Carly, a regular girl, who is cast on her favorite TV show. The idea was then changed to her getting her own show, and then changed again to her creating a web show. See more »

Goofs

In some episodes the iCarly-crew is broadcasting the web show live from places without any internet connection, where it would be impossible to broadcast a web show with the equipment, that is showed in the series, like a supply cabinet in school or an old castle. They need an broadband internet connection for video and audio. And a wireless connection would not take that much signals and send it in real-time. See more »

For the most part, I like this show, but some parts are questionable
10 October 2010 | by cemetery_whispersSee all my reviews

I watched ICarly when it was first on, and i was really impressed at the first couple of episodes. It was funny, cute, and good-natured, and i was pretty young then, so i didn't think about it too deeply. This show has survived on Nickelodeon pretty well for about three years, and i have to give it a thumbs-up for being so popular.

First, the good things about the show: It' usually a really good show with some good humor and likable characters, and they usually try to do the right thing. If little kids are watching, they'll get a few life lessons from it. Spencer is my favorite character, next is Gibby. They, in my opinion, are what give the show most of it's fun. Some of the jokes are pretty funny, and they do a good job at keeping you entertained with most episodes. The whole idea of a girl making a web show is pretty unique, and i have to say that there hasn't been a show like this before. For the older people watching, the guys'll want to look at Carly and Sam, and some of the other girls on the show, and it is sometimes good for that. The plots of the episodes are usually pretty funny and creative, and some of them are realistic, while others aren't (but they're all fun.) I like watching this most of the time, which is where the 7 comes from.

There are bad things about this show, too. The one that i think of is that they show it too much. It's probably on Nick about eight times a day, and by then, i'm sick to death of it. Same goes for Dan Schneider's other show, Victorious. Secondly, some of the humor in the show is questionable. Sam is pretty annoying in a lot of episodes, and even Carly can be sometimes. In the episode where she wants to go to the boxing thing, and Spencer tells her no, she acts like a brat, and then when he busts her, she gets mad at him for something he says to the boxing guy. Other episodes like the fencing episode show that Carly bosses Spencer around but she can ignore him if he gets serious. In addition, the characters on this show are obsessed with texting and phones, and that gets really annoying. They've been going everywhere themselves and doing things by themselves like they're adults since the very start, even when they were, like, 13, they use the laugh track too much and they can even get away with hiring a bunch of little kids to make shirts for them! Oh, and everyone, and i mean EVERYONE knows what their show is. How does that really happen?

For the most part, i recommend this, because it's a pretty good show, although you'll probably pick up on the same things i did.
