DVD Review: iCARLY: THE COMPLETE 3rd SEASON

iCARLY: THE COMPLETE 3RD SEASON DVD | ©2011 Paramount Home Entertainment

Cast: Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress, Noah Munck Distributor: Paramount Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 I hate to admit it, but Nickelodeon’s iCARLY has proven to be one of the best sitcoms around. It’s traditional in its structure, and yes it’s geared toward Tweens, but it’s above and beyond many sitcoms on Network TV and it puts most of Disney’s Tween-coms to shame. Why it works is creator Dan Schneider’s knack for telling strange, bizarre stories within traditional sitcom framework. iCARLY is centered around teenager Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove) who is the host of a popular Internet show […]Read On »

Cast: Victoria Justice, Leon Thomas III, Matt Bennett, Elizabeth Gillies, Ariana Grande, Avan Jogia, Daniella Monet, Michael Eric Rein, Eric Lange Distributor: Paramount Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 While Dan Schneider has found success with Nickelodeon over the years with DRAKE AND JOSH and ZOEY 101, it was iCARLY that really gave him some mojo and parent cred for his incredible strange sitcom about an internet web show hosted by two Tween girls. It’s a concept that could have been unbearable, but it grew into a gargantuan hit and continues to surprise with its offbeat storytelling. Capitalizing on that […]Read On »

TV Review: iCARLY – Season 4 – “iLost My Mind”

Stars: Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress, Jerry Trainor, Noah Munck Writers: Dan Schneider, Matt Fleckenstein Director: Steve Hoefer Network: Nickelodeon Original Telecast: August 13, 2011 You have to hand it to iCARLY for continuing to be the strangest and most satisfying series on Tween television. As it enters the second half of its fourth season on Nickelodeon, it continues to push and prod the humorous boundaries with its likable characters, silly situations and broad physical comedy. The new episode pays off the Season 4 cliffhanger where Sam (Jennette McCurdy) realized she had feelings for her object of hate Freddie […]Read On »

Nickelodeon held an exclusive screening of the TV Event of the summer – iCARLY WITH VICTORIOUS recently at The Lot in West Hollywood. Combining two of Nickelodeon’s most popular shows into a 90-minute special was a genius move of Nickelodeon and Dan Schneider, the creator of both shows. Walking the “orange” carpet were the stars of the shows, which included: From iCARLY – Miranda Cosgrove, Noah Munck, Nathan Kress, Jennette McCurdy and Ethan Munck; From VICTORIOUS: Victoria Justice, Avan Jogia, Matt Bennett, Ariana Grande, Daniella Monet, Leon Thomas, Michael Reid, Cameron Stewart, and Dan Schneider. Joining them were guests, which […]Read On »

TV Movie Review: iCARLY – Season 4 – “iParty with Victorious”

Cast: Miranda Coscrove, Nathan Kress, Jennette McCurdy, Jerry Trainor, Noah Munck Writer: Dan Schneider Director: Steve Hoefer Network: Nickelodeon Original Telecast: June 11, 2011 The sporadic scheduling of iCARLY on Nickelodeon has certainly become somewhat frustrating over the last year. With only one new episode, on average, every month and a half or so, it’s very strange how extreme the network rations this show. Granted, the repeats do wonders for them, but when you have a show in its fourth season and only ten of what will probably be an 18-episode season (if you base it on the number of […]Read On »
