I like Victorious. When I really got to watching it I found it surprisingly funny. The cast is great, jokes are great and a little bit double edged at times. I enjoyed it. I was disappointed that there wasn't much of a series finale though. Therefore, I made my own! *don't judge me, I have time on my hands. here it is if you want to read on:
_______Tori's mom gets a new job offer out of state that she can't refuse, so the family has to pack up and move. Tori is devastated that she has to leave behind her friends and life at Hollywood Arts, but she is unable to deal with her emotions as she has to deal with the aftermath of telling her friends.
_______She tells them about the move at their lunch table. Everyone's saddened by the news, except Cat, who goes into denial, and Jade, who gets inexplicably angry. Sikowitz overhears as he is passing by and breaks down in tears, which he does throughout the epispde whenever he sees Tori.
______Cat, refusing to accept that Tori is leaving, keeps making crazy future plans including Tori(in typical Cat fashion), and promptly exits any conversation in which Tori's move is brought up.
______Trina, realizing that no one at Hollywood arts is going to miss her, tries to do something memorable to leave behind a legacy and gets up to crazy Trina antics at school.
______Meanwhile, the boys are planning an over-the-top going away party for Tori:
Andre~ Is trying to come up with the perfect song as a going away present for Tori, but has writters' block. He also keeps getting side tracked by constantly having to fix problems with the party.
Beck~ Is dealing with a very angry Jade who is being even more mean to Tori than usual. He also suspects that she is trying to sabotage the party.
Robbie~ Is worried about Cat and tries to have her accept what is happening. Tor's moving gives him a wake up call and he decides he's going to try to tell Cat how he really feels about her.
______At the party, which is being held at the school the night before Tori is set to leave, Tori sits on the steps, not ready to join in just yet. Sinjin approached her with a gift. It is her locker door. Tori finally breaks down crying on his shoulder.
______Inside, Beck and Jade get into a huge fight when he finds out that she was indeed trying to sabotage the party. He demands to know why she is behaving the way she is. Jade gets mad and accuses him of being in love with Tori. She tries to storm off, but he pulls her into a hug, tells her that he loves her, will always love her, and that he too, will miss Tori.
______Robbie is on his way to confess his feelings to Cat(who is pretending that the party is actually a birthday party for Tori), when he encounters a despondent Trina who failed in her attempts to become memorable and likeable enough so that people will miss her. He tells her that even if they are Tori's friends, they'll miss her too, and that the school will never be the same again without Trina Vega.
______Tori enters her party and meets up with Andre, who apologizes for not being able to write her a song. She tells him that he didn't need to, that he's a best friend, and that she'll never forget him.
______Beck, Jade, Robbie, Cat, and Trina join them. Cat yells "Happy Birthday Tori!", Robbie and Beck hugs her and tells her they'll miss her. Jadeapproaches like she is going to hug her but instead gives her a pat on the b ack. Just as Trina and Tori are sharing a hug, Tori's phone rings. It's her mom. It turns out that they don't have to move after all. She tells them, everyone rejoices(including Jade who quickly tries to cover it up). Cat says "You're not moving? You had us all stressing out over nothing?". Everyone at the party starts chanting Tor's name. She gets up on stage and sings the theme song to Victorious: 'Make it Shine'.
Shows these days have the same plot, the people always get famous and are singers! It is not realistic, it like saying to kids that you have to be famous or you will never be good. Then there is the cast, tori is ok but she tends to get on the stupid/thoughtless track, Jade and Andre are actually not the worst characters, Andre is like a down to earth person and jade is funny! Jade, even though she is dark and sometimes scary, her jokes are actually funny. Robby is so weird, all Robby does is walk around with a puppet but thinks he is real, which he never spends time without the puppet and it is weird even though the show makes it so good that even you think he is real. THEN THERE IS CAT, Cat is so stupid and annoying I can't even describe it! It angers me that Ariana grande agrees to do that stupid crap. Ariana Could really get a more better show. She doesn't show we potential and just stays at nickelodeon where she is stupid. But if she tried hard enough she could become a great actor an not a meteocer actor. And Bec, to be honest is hot but enjoys it to much. He is not the worst character in the show but not the best. Trina is the all time worst character, she is spoiled, rude, and disrespectful to anyone who isn't cool or good looking. And she thinks he can do whatever she wants by getting guys to do her work, and she has a horrible voice but she is so in denial that she can't face the fact that she sucks. And what annoys me so much about shows is that there always has to be a stupid person on the show. And tv souls make a moral show again, but not make it cheesy like full house. More like the Cosby show. To end this review I want to say that you should never watch it, it's a horrible show and the creator should be ashamed
Victorious is another show created by Icarly and Drake and Josh creator Dan Schneider. Although It is worse than Icarly and it is nowhere as good as Big Time Rush and there are so many reasons on why this show is worse than Icarly. There's more flaws within the whole show and the execution is just awful and the whole idea is badly realized thanks to the flaws that the show suffered a lot And here are my reasons on why I didn't like this show. First of all it has a badly realized plot that could have been better. Second the show itself has no humor at all and it doesn't deliver any goodies that the mediacore Icarly carries and last but not least the slapstick jokes are too much and boring as Icarly's overhyped jokes and its hardly funny or not for one reason. The only good thing about this show is Victoria Justice's and the rest of the performances of the casts. But overall much more forgettable than Icarly.
I really like it, I find it so easy and pleasant to watch. The reviews and scores and completely off, what's going on? I guess this show is not as lovable as some others to its target audience but is it a bad show? Not at all. There is just not one single episode or plot or subplot that is childish or has downright terrible writing. Look again, great acting and good details on the stories, solid background. The exception is the blooper episode, but those kinda filler episodes are present even in the best sitcoms. This show has its own style and it really is centered on the comedy aspect. From Schneider's bakery. But really they get their act together and it never fails to deliver, every episode is on par with each other. But it is very different to all other shows because it is basically the premise that Tori doesn't fit in Hollywood Arts because it's too weird for her but turns out she is one of the most talented students there and blends in. The show is totally over the top, I mean that's the idea. But it is always reasonable, down to earth, even relatable. Crazy, yeah but it's supposed to be. It turns out to be a very decent show with a funny feeling to it and very comedic at times. And it lasted the basic Nickelodeon/Disney policy of 55-60 episodes so it's already over :( The thing is that it went too slow, could've had more episodes per season. But really it couldn't go on anymore, the actors have aged just right to get over high school already. I mean like Kenan & Kel and Drake & Josh, they were too old back then when they started supposedly playing same ages as this cast. I think Victorious ended just in time, but without a proper finale and that sucks so damn much. What show doesn't get closure after 4 seasons? Unbelievable. It does ruin the series a lot, it could have been even better than it was/is.
That's lovely that Victoria Justice got her own show, "Lola" from Zoey 101. And Tori does have the funniest lines in this show for my taste, that's nice. Andre is cool and the most talented I think. Gotta say that Rex is very funny when making fun of Robbie or putting him down, I dig the ventriloquism. Cat is random and silly but pretty and adorable so somewhow Ariana Grande has a big fanbase, she can sing too. Jade does provide actually funny stuff at times, she is a meanie but you can love her indeed. Sikowitz is a funny relief for the show. There's also Beck the handsome boy, who is a good friend to all the gang. Trina, I mean that character you are just not supposed to like her but Daniella is funny at times, simply reckless.
Really this show ended up being better than iCarly in the end (because it overstayed). Is better than shake it up, wizards, hannah, just about everything else made after 2008 and even before too (also better than zoey and many others) from both nick and disney. And that is because aside from the musical aspect, Victorious is not as corny and cheesy as all those other shows, amazingly. Kudos for that. And it just appealed to me even though I was already old when it started, I enjoyed it and now I miss it.
Victorious. At first, I loved the first season. Great acting, great jokes. I was happy to see Victoria moving on now. But now it's painful to watch the second and third seasons. It's just like iCarly. It's getting too random and weird and they think that's cool. Tori is really annoying and whiney, and she thinks she an amazing person and they focus mainly on her. (Does iCarly come to mind??) Cat is so annoyingly stupid. I just want to curse at her nowadays. She has mental problems. Jade is just a bad example for kids. Always has scissors in her hands, thinking that that is safe. Violent and bullying Tori constantly. Jade has gotten to the extent that she never evens listen to what Tori says, and she is bullying Tori for everything Tori does. (Does a someone from iCarly pop in mind?)
Trina is self absorbed, thinking she's the greatest and she should get whatever she wants. She's like Tori, whiney and complaing. She never supports or appreciates her little sister when Tori needs her anymore.
Andre, is annoying and become dumber by the day. He thinks he so cool, and no teenage boys wear that. It's like he's just stepped out from an Abercrombie or GAP commercial. Ravi is so ANNOYING AND STUPID. He's a big wimp and even his annoying, smart-aleck puppet named after a DINOSAUR in cooler than him. Ravi needs to grow up and stop playing with Rex. And how can this Northlake girls be attracted to a PUPPET? Beck, I don't really have any problems with him, except his acting is getting worse by the episode, and he's getting dumber. Sikowitz needs to find some shoes and a new haircut and start being normal and really teaching the kids about drama besides all the other crap he blabs on about. Sinjin is just yuck. The other characters are annoying and are bad actors. You can really see Victorious's downfall, just like iCarly's. It's painful to watch this now. The jokes are overused, the plots are stupid. I want to be an actress. My mom says you have to have some experience with acting, so I am currently taking drama classes. Not once have I seen Tori have any experience with acting, and apparently they were going to hire her for a movie??? What the CRAP? Ugh, just ugh.
The teenage actors need to grow up. They're 18-20 years old. They should go back to school and to college.
I loved Victorious, Victoria Justice is an amazing actress. All the other characters are good too. My favorite would be Cat (Ariana Grande) she is so cute. It's too bad that it got cancelled. I don't know for sure but I think Nickelodeon cancelled it because Victoria Justice was going on tour and that's why Victoria and Ariana are in a fight.
First of all, I would like to say that I don't give a shit about what you say or think about this show, but in my opinion, Victorious is one the BEST shows Nick has aired. I love how each character has a very different personality. The plot-lines are extremely entertaining and it is very original. I was truly devastated when I found out that Victorious was cancelled, but at the same time happy because Dan Schneider is making a spin-off, Sam & Cat, which I cannot wait to see!!! Overall, Victorious is one of the BEST shows on Nick, and they should have at least made 100 episodes. Oh, well...
It`s a good show that ultimately has goal. They go episode by episode it`s either drama which I don`t mind becuase it is a good show and does drama right. Or shows them growing as people and becoming better actors. Things I like Jade- she is like the mixture of depressed people all over and it`s kind of funny when she is taking her feeling out on people. One time she was cutting the heads off roses from the Adams Family it just reminds me of that. Beck- favorite character he just chills he feels like a real character he`s nice to people works hard. Almost all the time girls fight over him. Cat and Robbie- weakest point of the show drop them they just say random sttuff and sometimes ruin dramatic moments. roobie does nothing except play with his dumb pupet that doesn`t make any sense.Andre- he feels like the guy who always is sereis about the music the worst part is when he pulls a Robbie and says stupid stuff. The show makes good use of the music and dance with it being a premforming arts school. The Issue is they need to be more spontaneous but most of the songs are good. They better end the season quick though some of the epsidoe plots are getting a bit annoying I would hate for the first part of the season to be great then go down hill.
I watched this show a couple of times and it's really not that good. The characters in this show are not developed all that well. The humor is horrible. The music is not all that good. This show is overrated and this Dan Schnieder's worst show created. I think the only people who like show are hardcore teen pop fans, teen sitcom fans and people that have no memories of the 90's when these types of shows were better. I don't why Dan put in the segment where Tori puts text in to a moblie touchpad and puts her emotion in. It's very annoying because we all know what she's feeling. The most annoying thing about this show is the simulated laughter (laugh track). Ok Dan, please discard the simulated laughter, it's so pointless and it's obvious that the jokes are not funny to begin with. I apologize to the people who like this show, feel free to click the thumb down button if you wish, but this is my honest opinion. What's happened to Nickelodeon now-a-days? Take the garbage off the air off the air and put good shows back on.
I didn't have a lot of hope for Victorious when I saw the previews, and while it was a little bit better than I thought it would be, it's still a disgrace to Nick. What's even worse about it is that it was made by Dan Schneider, creator of Drake & Josh and All That, and one of my favorite TV writers. I can't explain how he lost his game so fast, but I CAN tell you how bad this show is.
Victorious is about Tori Vega, a teenager living in LA. Her jerkface-for-a-sister Trina was supposed to sing at Hollywood Arts High School (the main setting for the show), but she got some sort of allergic reaction that made her tongue swell up (I don't remember what it was that she was allergic to), rendering her unable to sing. Tori fills in for her, and the school was so amazed by her singing talent, they enroll her in the school. Basically, it's ANOTHER unnecessary show about singing.
It gets worse when you see the characters. Tori isn't a good protagonist at all; Trina is an egocentric jerk (as mentioned earlier); Robbie carries a ventriloquist dummy everywhere and acts as if it's real; Cat is supposed to be stupid in a funny way, but comes off as mentally retarded; Jade is a little mean-spirited; and I don't know much about Beck, except that he's Jade's BF. Andre's okay, but it hardly affects my score.
As for the humor, it pales in comparison to what we've come to expect from Schneider. The problem with this show--and his others--is that most of the "jokes" are lines that are supposed to sound funny, with a little bit of real jokes. Drake & Josh did the opposite (more jokes, a few funny lines). When they do use jokes, they're not usually funny; and the funny lines are stupid and pointless. However, the show DOES have it's funny moments--the Broken Glass song is my favorite--which is why I gave it a 3 instead of a 1.
Nickelodeon has definitely played worse shows than Victorious, but that doesn't excuse them from playing it in the first place. Hopefully, Dan will work on a new (and better) show and cancel this one.
What happens when you take all live-action and all animated shows off the air? You get this, and a glut of horrible new animated and live-action shows. Victorious is no exception, you get yet again, an average teenage slut with nothing better to do than to complain about how her life sucks. The acting in this show is just terrible, and I am not fooled into thinking anything more out of victorious. The biggest joke that I see is the fact that you will find a cut-scene in the show of a cell-phone making a social-networking status update. I mean really? Nickelodeon has made the biggest decline ever. Canceling all their good titles and releasing crap like this. The only good show they seem to have on anymore is Spongebob, and I fear the day that gets canceled.
If you ever think of a good show Dan Schneider made, it would most likely be Drake and Josh, Ned's Declassified, or the Amanda Show. If you ever think of a bad show Dan Schneider made, it would most likely be Victorious. Basically this show is about seven students who attend this prestigious high school in Hollywood. As if the plot wasn't stupid enough, it only gets worse. In fact, the worst aspect of this show would have to be the characters. Andre is completely pointless. Robbie is a stereotypical nerd. Jade is always depressed. Kat says some of the stupidest things ever, which are not at the least bit funny. Beck is stereotype of a cool guy. Trina is annoying and has zero talent. Tori is one of, if not, the worst protagonist to ever hit TV. She is always whining all the time, has no sympathy for anyone who is different than her, and thinks she's high and mighty over everyone else. Not to mention none of the characters are funny. And why is it that Robbie and Trina are the only ones who are treated like garbage? That is downright cruel and unacceptable. And no one, not even Kat, has any sympathy for them. The acting here is stale and seems as if no one is giving any effort to their part. All the plots are stale and are not interesting at the least bit. This show is just a horrific mess in the most ways possible, and should have given the ax after the first season. Mix all the bland and cruel humor, stereotypical and horrific characters, and the uninteresting plots, and you got yourself one utter mess.
Presentation 4.0 Crummy story, and bland plots won't grab you enough.
Characters/ Acting 2.0 Characters are horrific in so many ways, and the acting is nonexistent. Pretty much the worst part of this show.
Entertainment 3.0 Nowhere to be found. The humor on this show is cruel and unacceptable, and the characters only add to the torture.
Lasting Appeal 3.0 When you already have a stupid story, and a poor excuse for a plot, and atrocious humor, you will switch the TV in an instant.
does every good show have to be scrapped? u guys might be surprised im saying this about victorious but i'm dead serious. I loved season 1 because it was a simple well thought out concept. season 2 started a slump because the acting started to get off and all the time tori is raised up on some high pedestal as such an amazing person. what ever happened to live action shows featuring close to average, funny people? in drake and josh or kenan and kel, u don't see someone getting everything they want. season 3, I started getting pissed. I had a huge concern which started in season 2 but only gets worse in season 3 but i'll get to that.
See, sometimes in episodes, they just have a cool ending which u'd expect, that was... back then. every ending now a days is either tori singing and getting everything she wants, or some stupid excuse for an ending to overcrowd tori's... VICTORIOUS nature. and i'll be more specific later on.
See, my biggest concern ever is the adults. now, I know u guys might think it's the teenagers that reflect off the show most, and not the adults. but now, the adults have become more into episodes.
#4: Layne- back then, he was ur normal guidance counselor but now, it seems like HE needs a guidance counselor. he has such huge anger issue and his tantrums come clean out of
nowhere! he's been flanderized to the point of insanity.
#3: Sikowitz- now this guy never really changed so I hated him at all points. he's either some crybaby or some psychotic freak show. I always hated the fact he was into tricking people like in the episode Cell block, when he teamed with the boys and tricked the girls.
#2: uhh.... the manager of nozu (forget her name)- okay, this lady is similar to Layne, she has tantrums out of nowhere and brings up the same excuse to be such an antagonist to tori, because what tori did to her daughter in the play. but that's not much. this lady takes things out on Robby for no given reason.
#1: Tori's mom- it reminds me of timmy turner's mom. she's so neglecting to tori, she hardly gives a damn about both daughters. in the episode "freak the freak out" she left tori taking care of an unpleasant trina. I just threw in the towels when I saw the mom do that. I can't really say anything about the father because he's hardly in anymore episodes.
pretty much every adult on the show is someone I hate, even the ones that appear in one episode. they're either like Layne (mean spirited) or a practical idiot. but there's one specific episode I have to mention which is why I gave up victorious and that is the Game Show episode. dear lord. this was just as painful to watch as to see the characters go through that pain. I didn't see the first half except for the last 2 minutes of the first half and I saw the guy who organized the teams. and oh god, what the hell were the fire crackers for? it's just a Layne Tantrum all over again. when Jade mention she was tori to get the better team, I was kind of pissed off at beck, robby, and especially andre. I say andre because he's tori's best friend and nowadays, whenever something bad happens to tori, he just laughs at it or ignores it. some friend. moving on.
the second half was terrible. it was just some b***, yet another damn idiot adult, who was constantly harassing the teenagers if they got a question wrong. and the teenagers did nothing to stop the madness. it's not like back in the old days when jade spilled coffee in tori's hair so tori fairly got her back or in Zoey101 in the silver hammer episode when the characters gave up the club because it was unfair labor. no, no, no. here, the characters don't act like it matters to be punched in the gut with a bowling ball or hit on the head with a toilet. I was especially mad when jade got hit on the head with a car battery and beck just stood there like a bystander.
the end was also cr**, tori's team one so just because tori was the captain, she got all the prize money. she deliberately gets awarded without being "doinked" once while it was her team that had to suck up all the pain. I guess these writers felt guilty if tori yet again, received everything so they throw in another stupid idea of some sumo wrestler on top of tori while tori has to reach for the money in under ten seconds. and the episode Worst Roommates had the same type of bogus ending. tori and andre perform a good song which a celebrity likes but no, it's not his opinion yet a baby's.
and that's the episode and reason why I quit victorious. I guess the teenagers are kind of okay because they were designed nicely with individual traits but what I absolutely hate about the teenagers and I mentioned before, they're bystanders when their friends experience a problem.
It has come to no surprise to me as a parent from the UK, as to why this show and its companion show iCarly has been cancelled, and whilst the need of the now 18/20+ years old actors to grow up, go to college and so on and so forth is a good reason. I would argue the real reason for both shows early swan song is that; they have been nothing more than giant back door adverts for APPLE, with the shows, PEAR, Phone, Pad and Computer parodies of the iPhone, iPad and iMac, this is so wrong, both shows fill up at least an hour if not more on Nick every day. In fact this issue was investigated by the UK regulatior "OFCOM" which has the same powers and function of the US "FCC", although they did not punish Nick, they did warn them not to push it or else. They also handed evidence to the "FCC" as part of the process, as both the Shows were made in the US. So were both shows cancelled because of the "OFCOM" investigation and warning NOT to push it or else, could Nick have be told to get rid, or face huge fines, along with DAN and the Actors, now all 18+ for being iniolved?
As if we weren't bombarded already with shows about megasuperstardom and becoming famous from Disney, now we have to suffer when watching Nickelodeon too! Yet another uninspired, soporific programme that creates new episodes by recycling overused plot devices. The acting? Not the worst I've seen. The set design? It looks like a rainbow threw up all over the set of The Numberjacks. I advise you not to watch this. Please don't watch it.
The show is funny with interesting characters but I think they have Tori try to act too much like Carly from Icary. I know that both shows are made by the same person, but that doesn't mean the character have to be so similar. I guess that's why my favorite character in the show is Cat, even though she too stupid at times. Jade is very evil, but is funny in her own way. She reminds me of the way the kids act in my high school. Andre is a cool character; I often forget Beck is there because he's too quiet or is missing; and Robbie's character would be better if they would just get rid of his puppet Rex. Rex, who is voiced by the creator of the show, is terribly annoying and shouldn't always be held by Robbie. Overall, this show is pretty good although, like Icarly, I think it'll get worse over time.
I miss Nick shows from the 90's or earlier Especially Secret world of Alex Mack, that was my favorite, that i actually searched for for ages to get all episodes on my computer, sadly all the shows now, like iCarly and victorious r all the same sorta shows, set on basic sets, with no real depth or story
Ya know this show is garbage right next in the line with icarly and house of anubis. Sh**y acting for one, the plots are stupid, the girls dress like whores especially tori if I do say so myself like what are we trying to teach kids these days?! What the he** is nickelodeon thinking! What happened to the good nick shows; clarissa explains it all, rocketpower, rugrats, pete and pete, are you afraid of the dark, ledgens of the hidden temple? I could go on and on, the new generation and what they think is cool is discusting..
I'd say Nick had the worst shows ever if it weren't for SpongeBob, Teen Nick, Disney and a few other redeeming things about Nickelodeon that save it from going down the tubes in my book.
Victorious is crappy, no bones about it. And here's why:
Tori Vega: The main girl on the show. I disagree with what many of the other reviewers said: She's not a show off. She's just the good girl who's the best singer ever and is oh-so-wonderful that she gets picked to do anything, anything big at all, concerning singing. Yup, that amazing. At least Victoria Justice can sing.
Jade West: Tori's, as of now, former enemy who still isn't much of her friend. She's gothic, freaky, violent, and, in my opinion, sings way better than Tori and deserves more screen time on the show.
Cat Valentine: She's a lot like her name. Really weird and nave, but also good hearted and sweet, kinda-sorta. She has this borderline-annoying high baby voice.
Andre Harris: Better than most of the characters on the show. A very good singer and frequently sings with Tori.
Beck Oliver: I hate this guy. He can go to hell as far as I'm concerned. I freaking despise him in every way. He's a show off with good looks (and uses them to his advantage) and is on his way to becoming a complete player.
Robbie Shapiro: Idiot ventriloquist with a puppet that's cooler than him. Not much of a pretty boy, not all that smart, either, annoyingly feminine sometimes.
Trina Vega: Tori's asshole selfish sister who wants to make it big but never will, because she can't see that she has absolutely no damn talent at all. Talk talk talks, overreacts about everything, SO. DAMN. ANNOYING.
Rex the Puppet: Why hasn't anyone incinerated this stupid stick of wood already? I'm waiting for the day.
The plot is, of course, scattered and nonsensical. The music is mediocre, better than Disney's, but not by much.
all the characters are hilarious. but seriously robby needs to get rid of rex. he is such a dork. no offence. the only way to get girls is if he oh o don't know got a haircut, lost the glasses and bam. wait! he also has to wear one of those jeans that he wore in "robbie sells rex" other than that he is soooo great. love the show. please don't end. never mind about the hair cut its fine
This show reminds me of Hannah Montana. Tori shes kinda a wannabe. Tori was my favorite character but now shes not. Cat is my favorite character right now shes pretty, she can sing WAY better than Tori, shes random, she acts slow in a funny way. Cat Valentine is so awesome!! But victorious is going downhill. Nickelodeon is goimg downhill!!
Well, recently Nick has gone on a downward spiral -- BIGTIME. It's introducing the WORST SHOWS IN TELEVISION HISTORY. Fred? Marvin, Marvin?! Come on, Nick, you're WAY better than that. Since iCarly ended and Spongebob went DOWNHILL, Victorious is the only watchable show on that cable network. Such a shame it's ending in February. It's entertaining, the characters are somewhat annoying, but it's not as bad as Marvin, Marvin. The show has been going downhill and I intrigued to see how the finale unfolds.
This show is OK! It definitely isn't a great show, but it isn't terrible at the same time. The biggest issue with the show is consistency. Lately, the episodes aren't the way they would have been executed back in Seasons 1 and 2. The newest episodes in my opinion aren't good and are kind of cheesed off. Overall, an average show that isn't as good as Drake and Josh but is WAY better than Fanboy and ChumChum. Overall, this deserves a 6.5/10.
Before anything, to the fantards of this show: I am NOT A HATER of this show! Being a hater means that I'm basing my opinion off biased, ignorant bullshit that would only make me look like an idiot (like the majority of the opinions for a Twilight fan or Twilight hater). I am basing my opinion of actual thought & why I don't even like it. So don't thumb me down because you got butthurt over me not liking the show. Grow up & stop acting like moron 9 year old girls, like all of those Disney Channel idiots (because if you begin to act like a Disney Channel fantard, then you really must be stupid; & let me tell you that it is the saddest thing out there to be considered as stupid as a Disney Channel fan). And yes, I called all of you fans of this show "fantards" because you are all acting like a bunch of incompetent morons to whoever doesn't like this show.
Enough ranting, back to the review:
I never cared for this show because I honestly could care less for anything that Victoria Justice stars in, with the exception of Zoey 101. At first, it started out OK-ish, I didn't mind it. But then it started getting extremely illogical, stupid, ANNOYING, & completely random. It got so much of the previous stuff I mentioned that I honestly began to dislike it to the point where I couldn't tolerate it anymore & stopped watching it.
The characters in this show are all either on the "eh" side, which are only less than a handful, to just plain out stupid or irritating. And not to mention that they're all massive stereotypes. Tori is the main character of the show (or at least she's supposed to be), but she is just unlikable most of the time, especially with her showoff-y attitude & whiny-bitchy personality. She is very random, stupid, always asking for favors, & doesn't seem to be very interested in doing things that she SHOULD be doing; . getting a damn driver's license like a normal teenage girl. She is so inconsiderate to others, cares only about herself, & doesn't seem to give two-shits of a cent about what everyone else needs.
Kat is the most unnerving & irritating of the bunch. Her character isn't the worst one, no, that spot is taken by that geek & his stupid-ass dummy, but her character's voice annoys me to the point of wanting her to shut the fuck up. She somehow manages to have shit-loads of money to buy crap-loads of things that she DOES NOT NEED from catalogs, is somewhat of a whore (she asked a geek in her school if he owned a credit card, & she'd love to be his girlfriend if he got one), is unrealistically sweet, suffers from being a complete bumbling idiot, & frankly serves no purpose in the show. She is so stupid, that you just can't help but ask yourself if she's mentally challenged. And she is also an orgasm-machine for technology. If you rid her of her cellphone, she'll go batshit insane. I adore technology, especially stuff that involves touch-screen, but do you see me losing my Neptune-forsaken mind when someone takes my phone away? It's not right to remove someone's cellphone because they could really use it, but Kat doesn't give a shit about that, she only cares to text-rape the shit out of her phone.
Then we come to Jade, possibly the only female character in the show that is likable, & extremely hot. She's a big stereotype, but how else can you portray a goth/punk chick like her? Her character is practically a sadist, expressing what she feels, has very clever jokes & one-liners, is good comedic relief, & is played by an actress that is far too good for this show. She is also always trying to find ways to kill Tori, which I honestly don't blame her for, seriously (I'd want to kill Tori myself if I had to be around her all the time). Trina, also known as Tori's sister, is possibly the most unlikable female character in this show, more unlikable than her sister. She is not only completely stupid in every meaning of the word, but she is a terrible older sister, has no redeeming values, & is without a real personality. I really, really hate Trina.
As for the guys, I have to say Andre is more tolerable than the rest. He is very cool, has some clever jokes, & is somewhat stereotypical, but in a good way. Beck, not a bad character, but not very likable or bad; he doesn't have much of a personality, seriously, but the most irritating thing about him as how he is so self-centered, & is practically asking to be gang-raped by all the girls that stare at him at school. Main stereotype for Beck is that he's the high school pretty boy. Finally, we have Robbie & Rex; not only are these two the worst most unlikable guys, but they are the worst most unlikable characters in this show, PERIOD.
Robbie is a sad excuse for a comedic relief that can only be seen as what his stereotype looks like; a loser, geek, creep, nerd, & an asshole. His pal, Rex (who always has a hand stuck up his ass), is no better. Rex is an ugly (seriously) living ventriloquist dummy with a mind of his own, literally. He is a douchebag always hitting on Tori, putting others down (especially Robby), is unlikable, & serves no purpose in the show but to be hated. Robbie constantly takes shit from Rex, & Robbie is a random personality loser who will do what it takes to be popular or get what he wants, a very poor comedic character, & is annoying in every meaning of the word. I HATE these two characters with every fiber in my being.
So with characters like these, this show doesn't have much potential. If you ask me, they should have made a show simply for the punk/goth chick along with better actors (Miranda Cosgrove & Keke Palmer, anyone?) with a clever idea. Maybe the show could be about how Punks are misunderstood & try to prove the world wrong in comedic ways. They could have background characters with other more likable actors (any of the actors from Drake & Josh) to support the show.
The show itself is completely pointless as well, & each episode has very inconsistent or little plot. You can say the same for iCarly, but no, major fucking differences: 1. iCarly has a point, & that is to be an entertaining webcast of a show & please it's fans. Victorious is just about these kids who went to some acting academy that doesn't even sound like an academy, but more like some boarding school for teens who are desperate. 2. Each of iCarly's episodes have a solid plot & story that can be read easily & will stick to it. Victorious' episodes are either pointless or have little plot riddled with inconsistencies, stuff that have nothing to do with them, plotholes, & random crap. And 3) iCarly's characters have depth, development, & are realistic. EVen if you don't like them, they are likably realistic & teach things to kids. Victorious' characters are all massive stereotypes with little to no depth or development & portray very little realism, give little morals to kids, & are incorrectly portrayed as teenagers.
Many of the songs in here are as the show, hit or miss. You can like some of them or you can hate some of them, either way, doesn't matter. But then again, most people who don't even like Nick anymore or even modern music will start throwing out their "It's all editing & autotune" bullshit, without even knowing what the hell any of that stuff is. Yes, some of the singers in here are awful, have editing, & a few tweaking, but NOT ALL OF THEM. If you want to see awful singing, bad editing, auto-tune raping, & no talent in general, then watch Shake it Up, & anything Disney Channel has made.
Tori, as well as the hot goth chick in this show need better roles than what they have here, because this show is really unnerving now. It's jokes are also hit or miss, but mostly misses because they are forced, unoriginal, predictable, & at times seriously awful. And the show itself makes very little sense. Such as the one episode where Tori needs a ride to school; her sister(?) gives her a ride first, & in that ride, she is shaving her legs, while the car keeps going straight, & no one beeps at her. If that wasn't illogical enough, it gets stupider. She then puts both her legs up to shave, & the car itself is still moving; she isn't even looking at the road, & somehow she doesn't crash or have anyone crash into them, no cops are following her, no stop signs are passed, etc. I can go on. In the end, Tori gets to school sweating hot, because her sister turned the heat up to 140 degrees for some strange yoga thing; which makes no fucking sense because at that level of heat, you'd be dead (or have some serious burn degrees on your skin).
So all in all, the shows went from "eh" to just plain out idiotic. Is it better than the crap Disney Channel makes? Definitely, because at least the writers of this show look like they're trying SOMETHING (for what it's worth). Is it a good show anyways? Not really. Is it better than the previous stuff Nick has made? No. iCarly is better than this, & that's not to say iCarly is a bad show to begin with (because it's not). People who say Dan Schenider lost his touch when he introduced iCarly clearly don't know what the hell they're talking about. iCarly was the last good show Schneider produced, & the last good show Nick had. Anything else after that certainly fell to bad.
