    I'm watching the Megamind preview too! I hate how there are 2 commercials now: one after the theme song and one halfway through the episode. Advertisements are making season 4 eps so rushed. This Megamind thing is great but it's 5 minutes that could have been used for this episode. Gosh Sam is so cruel with this child labor chiz.

    This episode reminded me of something we learned in psychology about reward and punishment.

    This was my favorite episode of season 4, it kept me laughing the whole way through. It had alot of brick jokes. The one with the foreign man running from Gibby was also in iSams Mom, but iSams Mom was filmed after iSell Penny-Tees, so it was meant to be a be a brick joke in iSams Mom, but it ended up being in iSPT. I though that was kinda weird.



    Also, did y'all notice that the main girl in sam's group was "Wendy" in the drake & Josh episode "Number 1 Fan". I also saw that the women who played Mrs. Hafer in D&J was in the following True Jackson VP episode as an "older lady".



    The two commercial breaks thing is only for new episodes ( or if it's airing on teennick).



    The MegaMind thing was pretty cool, so I might see that movie.



    The iDo promo looked good, but that's defiantly not what I pictured Jodi and Gordon to look like though.

    I hate to say it, but I'd have to call this one of the worst episodes. I mean, it really wasn't that funny, and the ending just didn't fit. Kids who were eating garbage can sandwiches and working hard for 5 dollars and took long to rebel suddenly were smart enough to come up with a way to sell their own Penny Tees? Plus, Sam was just too evil in this episode, like it was out of character even for her.

    Wendy? You mean Alyson Stoner? I don't remember seeing her, and she seems a little too old to play a 4th grader, especially compared to Carly you know? Also I thought it was Mrs. Hayfer from the voice, but when I looked at her she looked a lot different.


    Even for reruns the episodes seem shorter due to commercials. Like they put in more commercials during the 15 minute mark.

    I didn't like the episode much. /: Wasn't very funny. Not much to advance the plot.

    There was nothing in this episode I liked. Nothing. I didn't really expect anything, but I was still disappointed. I agree, Sam was too much in this episode-and I usually LOVE Sam, she's like my favorite character! I think iCarly is crossing over to the dark side. lol.

    Many of the clothes we wear and the other products we use are made by workers whom are treated similar to the way Sam treated them on the show. Dirt cheap labor, and unsafe working conditions are just why companies today outsource their labor jobs to Asia and Latin America. In fact, many third-world countries today have yet to implement child-labor laws. I've heard of apple using child labor in china in their factories there.

    Yes, I know, and I understand that was what the writers were aiming at. However, it wasn't funny and it isn't something Sam would do. It could maybebe something Nevel would do, but not Sam.I agree with what MM1 said about thekids. How could they suddenly be that smart?

    I understand the commentary and what the writers were trying to do with this episode, but they failed to make it funny, Sam was really too evil in this episode and it bothered me immensely, the only funny thing was Spencer's plot, and even that got annoying after a while, you can only hear so much Uzbek and not understand a word before it get's irritating. I hope this was just a fluke episode and it gets back on track next week, iDo still looks pretty good.

    I'd recommend skipping it, yeah. Unless you like watching children being treated like factory workers and Sam crossing what's called a Moral Event Horizon.


    Really, the only good thing you missed was the Megamind trailer But I'm pretty sure someone will upload that seperately on youtube by the time you read this post.


    I just hope iDo is a lot better in story quality.


    EDIT: Here's the Megamind link.
