  • Superb Episode

    This is an excellent episode of icarly. I would definitely recommend this episode. This episode is well written and funny. My favorite part is when the Plain White T's performance in the end. It was pretty cool to see them guest star in this epiosde. This episode is not perfect because Nevel ruined my score. I didn't like it when he was responsible for icarly's technical difficulties. He gets really annoying in most episodes too. But anyways, it was really funny to see Carly's Dads Friend did to Nevel in the end. It was funny when Nevel's Grandma mistakens Freddie as a Spider and hits him with an Umbrella. That part got me rolling. Overall aside from Nevel ruining icarly's technical problems, this is an Fantastic episode. I loved this episode. 9.5/10.moreless
  • iRue The Day- Terrible!

    You know as well as I know, I hate giving these episodes low scores but they just lack humor. For one thing, Nevel is a little shit so why can't they all just go over there and beat him up? No no they have to go on this big adventure to do it. Unbleivable!

    What is with Season 1?
  • Best episode of icarly of season 1

    it was so good i never wanted this episode to end. The Plain White ts's were pretty good i liked their song. i loved this episode so so much. This episode was the best icarly episode of season 1. Nevel was the one that made this episode awesome. if Nevel wasn't in it this episode would be a 5 but Nevel doubled the score. This eshow started out pretty bad, but now because of this episode season 1 is the second best season on icarly. (season 4 is the best). NEvel is my new favorite chacter. HE ROCKS! If you havn't seen it watch it it's awesome.moreless
  • I hate the episode. The only part I like is the plain white t`s

    I hate this episode. The only part I recommend is the plain white t`s. If you read my review, dont watch the whole episode. Only watch the plain white t`s, listen to the song, and you will understand why I think the plain white t`s are awesome! They sing "our time now". But, the rest of the episode is bad. Only watch the end! If you read this review, and you have never watched icarly, wait till the next time icarly comes on, click info, if the episode says "irue the day", kepp it on a different channel, until 1:20. I hate this episode, but I only like the plain white t`s.moreless
  • Tearjerker in a bad way. It made me cry it sucked so bad!!

    I didn't like this episode because it was really unrealistic. Why? Why, oh, I don't know. Maybe because the FBI would never leave a kid dangling from the ceiling even if he did do illegal tampering to Carly's webshow. "Who cares" is what i say. Some people may ask why I would review episodes of a show i dislike so much. I do this because i want to share my opinions on good and bad things. I congratulate neville for screwing up iCarly even if he didn't win the battle. They get crap for being crap. / / / / /moreless
