  • This episode could've done a whole lot better. Just saying.

    This episode of iCarly was not good, but it's not bad either. They really could've done this whole episode a whole lot better. It had a couple of funny moments like in the beginning when Sam was eating breakfast in class. This episode is a little boring. All it is is just Carly, Sam and Freddie watching 500 dance videos. After about I think 472 dance videos, they all fell asleep. They each had a dream about them dancing. Sam's dream was stupid, but it was funny when Gibby was naked, and asked "Am I too late for the test?. Then sam saying "Get out of here Gibby. This is my Freddie's dream was cool, and so was Carly's dream. Spencer's dream was also kind of funny, especially when he was in a dress. Overall, this episode is just okay. Some parts bored me a little bit. They really could've done this whole episode a whole lot better. But it had a few funny moments. 6/10.moreless
  • Not to bad of an episode.

    Lots of people hate this episode. Not as good as the first 2 episodes but entertaining none the less. Yeah the dream sequences are a bit silly but its fun to watch them dance around like idiots!
  • iDream Of Dance- Abysmal

    This episode was awful because it made no sense. They just randomly all dream the same thing? Thats so dumb. And they all suck at dancing. Btw, Freddies dance was NOT cool you little dorky weirdo.
  • This episode wasn't that good.

    This was an ok episode of iCarly, i may have been good if everyone wasn't dancing. When i first saw this i was so bored, but when i went back and watched it and laughed at some parts but not that much. Now if they had less dancing and more comedy this would probably and enjoyable episode. Now i laughed at some of the dancing (that was bad) Sam putting Freddie's straw in her ear and into the tea, and when they got to school and everyone started dancing (before you found out it was just a dream.) I also laughed Mrs. Briggs said that they were getting a specail treat and Gibby said "A spelling bee?" and when Sam was knocking Gibby's locker sdoor of with a hammer (because she thought it was hers). Now the dancing was taht good and pretty boring. Overall 6/10.moreless
  • It's episodes like these that make me say to myself "Season 1 really isn't iCarly's best season"

    This was just a poor episode of "iCarly". Even back then in 2007, I was bored out of my mind watching this episode. It's just nothing Carly, Sam, and Freddie falling asleep and dreaming about themselves dancing. They could've made the plot much more interesting but they just had to suck all of the boredom out of us. I guess one of the few funny things was Sam eating breakfast in the beginning of the episode but that was just pretty much it. Of course, Gibby stole the show in this episode but his role wasn't that huge in this episode. I can't remember any more funny parts probably because there weren't for me and I was just bored. Sam's dancing dream was pretty stupid and just plain ridiculous. Freddie's dancing dream was mildly entertaining and probably the best but it's dance moves we've all seen before. Carly's dancing dream was also mildly entertaining. The last part I found very funny when Spencer had a dancing dream and he was in a dress (it was weird that he had the same dancing dream like Carly but oh well). Overall, few funny and mildly entertaining scenes but that's really not saying much and this episode just sucked the boredom out of me. 4/10moreless
