  • iCarly Halloween alright!

    Although not the best but certainly the most fun. Carly,Freddy,& Sam decide to do the show in an abandoned apartment but start hearing strange noises and someone shouting "DIE". This is defo one of the better episodes from season 1.
  • iScream On Halloween- Great

    I think this episode was great because it was funny how they were locked in the apartment and they were like scared out of their minds. I like when they mistakened all the explainable stuff was creepy. I lowerefd the score because I thought the kids were little shits. They were like, "Give us candy!" And then like attacked Spencer. I would amck those assholes is the face if I were Spencer.moreless
  • boring halloween episode

    Now i know some people liked this episode but i have to admit the icarly plot was kind of funny. but Spencer's plot was so annoying. this episode was going to be a 5 but the very beggining was really boring. probably the funniest part of the episode was when sam said. mom i lied to you those part do make you look fat. overall a poor episode
  • Halloween episode of "iCarly" that was excellent in my opinion

    I thought that this was an excellent Halloween episode of "iCarly" and it's one of my favorite Season 1 episodes considering the fact that Season 1 doesn't have that many great episodes. I don't know why this episode got low ratings. My only small complaint was how the episode was being too predictable about the apartment that was haunted and it actually wasn't haunted, I already knew after one second that the apartment wasn't going to be haunted. It's just a small complaint so I can let it slide. Spencer trying to carve the giant pumpkin was absolutely hilarious and it made me laugh very hard. Spencer giving the trick-or-treaters nothing but ice cubes, cables, etc. instead of candy was absolutely hilarious. The trick-or-treaters getting angry and trying to get Spencer was absolutely hilarious. Spencer hiding in the giant pumpkin from the trick-or-treaters was also very funny. Carly/Sam/Freddie plot was great as well but Spencer's plot is funnier though. The trick-or-treaters rolling Spencer (who is in the giant pumpkin) down the street was very funny. The very ending with Spencer saying "Never forget to buy candy on Halloween" was also good. Overall, it's too bad that this episode only airs on Nickelodeon's Halloween Week every single year but it's always worth watching every year and I still laugh hard watching it every year and it's one of my favorite Season 1 episodes of "iCarly". 10/10moreless
  • silly

    This episode was a bit silly. The laughing band was used to many times. The Halloween storyline was just boring as .... So the gang hears of a supposedly vacant apartment 13 B. they go there and make the web show there. But hear strange noises and see strange things like something crawling up their legs (a cat) glass breaking ( a cat) A severed clown head ( a phone?) And blood ( hair die ) It was all a big misunderstanding. And Spencer storyline of him having to carve out a big pumpkin and forgetting to buy candy for the kids was really lame and boring.moreless
