A good episode of Victorious, one of the reasons I tune in is because of how much Dan can get away with as opposed to Disney Channel shows. Victorious belongs on TeenNick so it can really pull out all the stops. The constant making out scenes, the surprising and entertaining violence. I think that's what makes this show what it is. Because from what I've seen, it's definitely not the comedy.
I can definitely see Jade's character changing over time, and we got some definite development even though the fact that she was faking was quite predictable. I definitely liked Robbie's story line more for some reason. His interactions with Trina were really great and entertaining. His kiss with two leading ladies was very fun to watch.
A good original concept of stage fighting which distinguishes it, and at times proves to not be a carbon copy of iCarly with a somewhat different plot.
