    my new favorite iCarly episode. When Carly is crossing a street and does not see a taco truck turning around the corner, Freddie does and pushes Carly out of the way. Carly is safe, but Freddie is injured instead. Carly starts to develop feelings for Freddie and nurtures him till he's back on his feet. Then Sam has a conversation with Freddie about the accident and realizes that Carly's feelings about Freddie aren't real. Ok I thought it was funny when they were in Freddie's apartment and Mrs. Benson passcode to let in look a long time. i also laughed whenCarly gave flowers to Freddie and she pounds them with a mallet and sokes it in bleech and Freddie says that his mom pounds it with a mallet puts the pill in his fruit saws and Spencers askes why and Freddie says that his mom might thing that he may choke on the fruit and so his mom pounds it with a mallet. I thought it was cute when Freddie and Carly kissed for the first time. Meanwhile Spencer and Sam were playing a paintball assin game to see who wins the final round. I thought that that plot was hillarious. Overall another perfect Icarly.moreless
  • Well, um, okay... this was um... well... not my favorite "iCarly" episode... BUT I guess... I'll be generous and give this.... an overall great score

    8.0
    Well... I'm kind of pausing because... well... this wasn't my favorite episode and it could have been better. It was kind of mixed for me... I wouldn't say mixed like a 6 score but mixed like maybe a 7 or 7.5 score. I ain't no "iCarly" fan but I guess I'll be generous and give this... an.... overall.... great..score. Hmmm... Freddie saves Carly's life and then Carly starts to fall in love with Freddie after saving her. That plot is actually interesting but like I said, it was mixed. Spencer and Sam having their paintball fight was kind of entertaining as well but it's not like it's exciting. Mrs. Benson was getting on my nerves in this episode and shouldn't have blamed Carly for Freddie's injury. I didn't really laugh in this episode. I think the only scene I laughed at was when Mrs. Benson caught Carly making out with Freddie and then Mrs. Benson hits Carly with Freddie's underwear... that's pretty much the only scene I laughed really hard at. The other thing that got on my nerves in this episode is the laugh track would always keep wooing whenever Carly and Freddie are kissing. Okay, we get it... Carly and Freddie are kissing and it's fine if they wooed the first time but more than that was just way too far. Come on, even if Carly and Freddie kiss for half a second, the laugh track still woos... come on, that's pretty ridiculous right there. The laugh track also laughs at the nonfunny scenes. What's so funny about Mrs. Benson saying "Freddie, I'll be back in 36 minutes".. oh wow, how is that funny?. Also, they made a huge deal when Sam won the paintball game "Assassin" and yet the laugh track and yelling and clapping for Sam... we won a freakin' paintball game big deal. Although, Carly and Freddie being together for the rest of this show would have been very nice to see but sadly Freddie told Carly that they should wait to be boyfriend and girlfriend. The ending was kind of sweet when Carly kissed Freddie in the cheek before Freddie went in the elevator. Overall, though, this episode was kind of mixed to me, there really wasn't anything exciting and the laugh track was just getting very annoying in this episode... I'll be generous for once with "iCarly" and give this episode an 8 but my actual score would have actually been a 7 or 7.5 because it was overall decent but not great but I'll give it an overall great score just to be generous for once with this show... probably won't be that generous with "iCarly" again though. 8/10moreless

    This episode, one of my favorites, involved Freddie getting hit by a car in an attempt to save his crush, Carly Shay's, life. Carly was upset that Freddie had gotten hurt because of her, and she nurses him back to health. Around the 13 minute mark of the episode, Freddie and Carly kiss, and then it cuts to a commercial break. When the show returns, Mrs. Benson starts hitting Carly with ... underwear. Freddie and Carly start showing some romance, like kissing in school. etc. But Sam ruins it for Freddie by saying, "She's not in love with YOU, she's in love with what you DID". Towards the end, Freddie says he wants to wait to be Carly's girlfriend.



    It's obvious that Freddie now has two lovers. Sam and Carly. I predict that in a future episode, Freddie gets torn between which one he picks, almost ending their friendship.

    Overall I was kind of dissapointed with this episode. It wasn't bad, but it was nothing to write home about either. My expectations were probably too high, but then again, how could they not be? Freddie saves Carly's life! Car! Injry! Life saving! On iCarly! This would result in high expectations, no?



    This is one of the few times where I can easily say that the subplot was better than the main one. I was much more entertained and interested in the Spencer/Sam thing than with Carly and Freddie. Maybe this just goes to show that I need Sam to keep me interested in things, I don't know. Carly and Freddie DID get some development, I'll give it that. Lots if kissing and Freddie shows his maturity yet again by deciding to wait until his hero status wears off before continuing a relationship with Carly. (all thanks to a mature conversation with Sam. Guess she has her moments, huh?)



    Sam and Spencer were hilarious as usual. Her final attack on Spencer was great, really didn't see that coming! Kudos to the writers. This is the kind of episode that probably should've been an hour long. Episodes like iFight Shelby Marx really don't need to be, but for something like this, I think it'd be better. With so much to show and so much story to be told, its hard to cram it into a half hour, when in reality it's only like 23 minutes. I think it could have been a lot better if the story had more time.



    I give it a 7. The main plot was rather boring after the first 10 minutes, but the episode was redeemed for me with the subplot.moreless
