Storyline

Carly hosts her own home-grown web show, iCarly. She lives with her twenty-something brother/guardian Spencer and produces her Web casts from a makeshift third-floor loft studio. Grappling with adolescence, she never aimed to gain fame as a rising star/underground celebrity to kids. As events unfold in the pilot, it all happens by accident when a teacher puts her in charge of the school talent show. She and her sassy best bud Sam turn the audition process into a show, which Carly's tech savvy smitten friend Freddie tapes - including their hilarious banter and great chemistry - and posts on the Web without telling the girls. The on-line audience clamors for more, and a pop phenomenon blooms, with Carly and sidekick Sam's regular Web casts ultimately featuring everything from comedy sketches and talent contests to interviews, recipes, and problem-solving. Written by Emily

Goofs

In some episodes the iCarly-crew is broadcasting the web show live from places without any internet connection, where it would be impossible to broadcast a web show with the equipment, that is showed in the series, like a supply cabinet in school or an old castle. They need an broadband internet connection for video and audio. And a wireless connection would not take that much signals and send it in real-time. See more »

iCarly is one hilarious show!
20 October 2009 | by TorontoLiverSee all my reviews

I started off not really liking iCarly. I thought it was going to be another corny kids' show. But man, was I wrong. This show is great! One night I was looking for something to watch, found nothing I liked, so I watched iCarly, and now I'm hooked! It's actually a pretty good show.

This show takes place in Seattle. Carly Shay is your typical teenage girl, sassy, smart, funny and beautiful. Carly is a kind-hearted girl who sees the good in people. She is the protagonist in iCarly, and does a great job! Sam Puckett is Carly's best friend, and she is totally the opposite of Carly. Unlike Carly, she's a total bully, she does bad in school. She is an extremely funny character, and likes to make sarcastic remarks whenever she can. And then there's Freddie Benson, Carly and Sam's friend... well, Carly's anyway. Freddie is the technical producer of iCarly and takes great pride in his job. He is completely obsessed with electronics, which irritates Sam. Sam and Freddie have a terrible friendship. She likes to bully and harass him a lot, and always has something nasty to say. She causes him physical and emotional pain, in which Freddie and Carly are getting extremely sick of. But deep down, she does care about him and would probably kill someone who tried ho hurt him. Oh, and who could forget Spencer? He's Carly's older brother who's also her legal guardian. Her dad's in the navy, and her mom is never heard of. I find that weird. Spencer's tall (6' 2") and he secretly loves Canada. One time Spencer fell asleep on a bus, and woke up in Vancouver! The man's hilarious, but extremely immature. In one episode, Spencer and Carly's grandfather claimed Spencer wasn't good enough to take care of Carly. But Spencer proves him wrong. Generous Granddad decides to let Carly stay with Spencer. Other characters are Francine Briggs, a mean teacher at Ridgeway, which is Carly, Sam, and Freddie's school. She's very vicious to every kid no matter what they do or say. Another is an extremely smart kid named Nevel Papperman who despises Carly and her friends and tries to mess with iCarly whenever he can for no reason. Then there's Gibby, a kid in Carly's class who's an idiot, and often takes his shirt off for no reason. He's one of the show's best.

This show is pretty cool. Some people won't appreciate its humour and I can see why, but I do. I liked the jokes. Give iCarly a try sometime. Even if you don't like these shows, you'll likely change your mind when you see iCarly. Clever show!
