  • iMight Switch Schools- Terrible!!!!!

    This episode was just horrible!!!! Honestly I would've given it a 1 but I liked the golfball thing! It is the same thing as iWanna Stay With Spencer. Carly can't leave in he middle of the first season!!! It was sooo riducling!!!! I hate shows that are too predictable!!!
  • Good episode BUT seriously? just like "iWanna Stay With Spencer"... they make the whole Carly leaving thing too early

    Carly gets an invitation to attend a private school which would mean leaving Freddie, Sam and her webcast, iCarly. Freddie and Sam scheme to make sure that Carly stays. Meanwhile, Spencer builds a mini golf course that becomes popular. For the most part, this was a good and funny episode of "iCarly" for the most part BUT really? why did they make an episode like this and "iWanna Stay With Spencer" so early. For Pete's sake, this is Season 1 we are talking about. They are making these Carly is leaving thing too early. Save the episodes like these for at least Season 2. I haven't seen this episode since probably the summer but I remember most of the positives about this episode. The negative (you know, the ones that lowered my score to a 7.5 instead of a 10) was when they made the Carly leaving thing too early and some parts felt a little dragged and boring. Spencer building his golf course all over the apartment was very funny. Gibby was very funny in this episode especially when he and his friends were attacking that woman over the purple golf ball... which was a trick from Sam and Freddie. The ending was pretty heartwarming as well. It was too predictable that Carly would stay... seriously? stop being too predictable writers... I think even children under 7 know that Carly isn't going to that private school. Overall, a good and funny episode of "iCarly"... considering the fact how much Season 1 sucks, this is one of the few Season 1 episodes that is actually enjoyable. 7.5/10moreless

    A good season one episode of iCarly here. I am usually a fan of the first season of shows as I feel they work harder to build an audience and think they are the best year for most shows. Just look at That 70's Show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Arrested Development, Newsradio etc.

    But iCarly got better over time. They did not need to resort to a bunch of kids attacking a lady in search of a purple golf ball to produce laughs.

    And the serious episodes they do now do not feel as forced as this one did.

    Did I laugh? Yes. Was it an enjoyable storyline? Yes, but saying all that it was still a bit of a mess at times. I mean Sam and Freddie so easily working together?moreless
  • Good, But a Bit Over Played Where I Live

    In this episode, Carly is thinking about leaving to go to a school called Briarwood Prep. But this means the end to iCarly and possibly her friendship with Sam and Freddie. So they try to sabotage an interview with the headmaster. It seems to work, but when Carly gets mad at the headmaster, she considers giving Carly another chance. But at the end it does not seem that Carly went or got another chance.

    A decent episode, some laughs, good plot, and some sad emotion. My overall grade would be about an A, and I think it is one of the best from s1moreless
