  • Worst one out of the first 5 episodes!

    iLike Jake more obnoxious than the previous 3 and its not nearly as funny either.
  • iLike Jake- Abysmal

    Ugg these season 1 episodes are just horrible. That Jake guy was sooo annoying. The plot made absolutley no sense whatsoever. Jake was a dork. And he was NOT funny. I just hate that stupid Austin Butler.
  • I rather watch "iDream of Dance" than this drek of an episode

    Okay, I thought "iDream of Dance" was pretty bad with a few funny and mildly entertaining parts. Here is the difference between that episode and this episode... there were funny or mildly entertaining parts at all. Seriously? what is it with Dan Schneider making these girls falling over a guy (who isn't hot at all). Austin Butler plays as the guy that Carly likes. It's okay if Dan makes these kinds of episodes once in a while but watching episodes like these just don't work especially if Dan Schneider does them. Sometimes it does work but the other half of the time, it really doesn't work. Carly and the girls screaming over Jake in the beginning of the episode was just extremely annoying. I got a tiny chuckle out of Spencer's paint sculpture plot and he had to wear a head for the sculpture but that was just it and it's not saying much. Not laugh out loud, not just a giggle, not just a hmmm, just a tiny chuckle that doesn't mean anything. What made this episode worse was that Jake is a terrible singer and Freddie has to fix his voice. I feel for Freddie... I know I would be annoyed with w girl if she gets all googly over some guy. The ending was even terrible as well. Overall, this drek was a nightmare and I rather watch the poor and boring episode "iDream of Dance" than this episode. 1/10moreless
  • Not so funny

    Carly has a guest on Icarly a kid that says he can sing. But when he does it sounds awful. So they think of a way to modify his voice on the computer while he was singing. Freddie worked his magic. And icarly thinks she has a shot with the guy but know he's popular with the ladies and gets his girlfriend back. I didn't like this storyline at all. It was very boring. You could predict that Carly wasn't going to end up with the guy. And how come Icarly has so many expensive and professional tech stuff where is the money coming from?moreless
  • good

    the hottest guy at school, jake, is single and appearing on icarly. carly and sam are both excited for this, until they learn how horrible of a singer jake is. freddie knows how to alter his voice so he sounds good, but will he be willing too?

    good episode, it was kind of boring in the second half, with us knowing jake is not a good singer, and the ending was kind of dumb i guess, but overall it was a pretty good offering from the show's first season, it gets a B- or so as a grade from memoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Carly once referred to Jake's grandmother as "Grammy One Foot." In an episode of Drake and Josh, one of the movies being shown at the Premiere Theater is "Daddy One Leg."

    • In this episode, Sam trades lockers with a student so it's close to Carly's. In the previous episode, that was already her locker. This is most likely due to the episodes being shown out of production order.
