Yeah a good promo, but they shouldn't have shown Nevel being forced to drink out of Sam's sweaty dirty sneaker while I was eating.
Nickelodeon (ended 2012)
Sneak peeks are up you guys!!
In iCarly "iPity the Nevel," premiering at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT), a video of Nevel yelling at a little girl surfaces on the internet and everyone turns against him. At first, the iCarly gang relish in Nevel's social demise but they begin to feel badly for him after he comes to them for help. The gang tries to restore Nevel's reputation by encouraging him to apologize to the little girl for his bad behavior. Meanwhile, Freddie deals with a sudden wave of popularity from female fans after he stars as a hunky vampire in an online iCarly short film "Moonlight Twi-Blood." Did he sink his teeth into more than he can chew?
^That's my favorite one. Fredward Cullen is a WIN.
Futurama pretty much said everything I was going to say, but I am just going to agree and say this was by far the funniest episode of the season. I actually did like the iCarly short movie and most of the webshow, I love when the show isn't just silly and pointless and when they actually do parodies of something (kind of) relevant to popular culture. Obviously I liked Nevel's role in the episode, it humanized him, gave him another dimension that made him an interesting character. The fact that he threw away his prepared statement was a big step for him, and the apology was sweet. I just wish that last scene just didn't happen, it took away everything that made Nevel interesting and put him right back to a one-dimensional villain. Either way it was a great last appearance for him.
I loved Spencer's role in the episode, because it truly was hilarious how he could just make his presence felt without having a plot, he was just there in the background doing random things and being goofy, not being noticed and it was brilliant. Even in the Nevel apology scene, he didn't have to say a word and it added just a bit of humor to that otherwise dramatic scene.
Overall best episode of the season by far, I actually laughed out loud many times, and it might have my favorite iCarly joke of all time in it. Freddie's line about Just Desserts, I had the exact same reaction Freddie did when I heard it, at the exact same time. It was great. Also I liked that they moved to more mature plot lines, good work realizing they are not 13 anymore. Plus a blatant adult/inappropriate joke! It was all there. 9.5/10. (I think I'll copy this post into a review)
Now I definitely think there is going to be one more iCarly episode somewhere between now and the movie over the summer, another 3+ month block between episodes is going to give the fans fits, I hope Nickelodeon realizes that.
To the above post, the saying "Getting your just desserts" refers to someone having a downfall after doing something despicable, or living a life in which he did something wrong, it's essentially just a saying to describe karma coming back at someone.
Am I the only one who thought this episode was lame? I didn't really like it at all, I'm sorry to say. :-( It was just lame. The writing stunk, I think. Does anyone know if that was Nevel's last appearance? Like officially??
|I didn't really get the Just Desserts joke. My mom didn't get it either. Can someone explain it to me? I guess I'm like Gibby...lol. I liked the episode.|
when someone gets what they deserve, or what is coming to them, they get their "Just Desserts." because of what Nevel did, people hate on him for yelling at that girl, and so he is getting his Just Desserts. Freddie used that to make a joke. So, when asked what kind of food will be at the karma party, he says "Oh, Just Desserts" as a parody of what "Just Desserts" means.
Loved this episode. I used to love to hate Nevel, but now, I see him as a more realistic person, with the way he feels bad about his actions. With the ending, I have to say, he's actually someone with anger issues, not so much a heartless villain.
|Oh, and Spencer did make an "invention" in the first scene. It was the egg shooter that didn't work and caught on fire.|
you're right, when i said he didn't make any,i forgot about this one
|Can Gibby get anymore unlikeable? |
If Tasha and him weren't exclusive why did he make such a big deal when he thought Freddie and Tasha kissed? Small things like these make me dislike his character.
