  • Again Ms.Briggs is a bitch!

    A decent episode with an interesting plot from start to finale.
  • iSpy A Mean Teacher- Sadly once agian Abysmal

    I have to say this because I just hate Freddie in Season 1. That affected my score ALOT. Sam and Spencer are the only funnyish ones in this season. Also, the plot WAS NOT FUNNY! Tisk Tisk writers.
  • Here is another perfect example of why Season 1 stinks

    The topic for the next iCarly webcast is figuring out what mean teachers do outside of school. When Carly and Freddie follow Ms. Briggs home, they get stuck inside her house. Oh my gosh, where do I even start? this Season 1 episode of "iCarly" was just so awful. Seriously? the iCarly crew wants to see what mean teachers when they're not at school. Most of the humor in this episode were all just pure awful and jokes we've heard before. Proves how Dan Schneider can't think of anything better for a show like this. This show did offer like 2 laughs and that's it. I don't remember the humor though because it's been 2 years since I've even watched this episode but I'm not gonna even waste my time watching this episode again. Oh yeah, I do remember laughing at Ms. Briggs doing her exercise and yeah... I don't remember the second part I laughed at though. The storyline is awful, the humor is tasteless and bland, and characters were either annoying or just lame. Also, the "iCarly" actually putting in stupid and childhish backgrounds while Ms. Briggs is playing her bad pipes is stupid as well. Overall, this was such a terrible episode of "iCarly" and it is another perfect example on why Season 1 stinks. 2.5/10moreless
  • poor....

    Not so funny episode Where the kids spy on their teacher. It was just a bit childish to me. The weird teacher and the kids trying to hide themselves in the closet. Sam was outside and was trying to help Carly and Freddie to escape but was caught also. Freddie trying to make a move on Carly again. And again no consequences ... Well they did have to let their teacher on the show to play terrible bag pipe music.Then they used the green screen to alter the view so there we're things going on behind the teachers back. This episode was so childish and boring.moreless

    iCarly is one of the better shows targeted for kids on TV these days, but to say that it took a little bit of time to find its footing would be an understatement as this was not exactly a great episode. The jokes were a little too over the top, and just the pacing, it just felt a little bit off, not to mention the ridiculousness of almost everything going on in the episode from the Randy Jackson room to Spencer getting upset that his girlfriend was juggling for someone else.

    Not horrible, but definitely not a good episode tonight.moreless

      In Ms. Brigg's closet, there is a box of Randy-chewitz Matzah and a box of Randy-Yos, an allusion to Manischewitz Matzah and Cheerios cereal.
