iCarly Season 1 Volume 2 DVD Review & Giveaway!!!


One of Nickelodeon's breakout hits has been iCarly. It stars Miranda Cosgrove (School of Rock cutie, Drake & Josh regular) as Carly, a girl who becomes a quasi celebrity in Seattle after broadcasting a webshow starring herself and her friend Sam. Carly's friend Freddie is the technology guy for their show.

Carly lives with her older brother Spencer and he is her legal guardian. This leads to the possibility of much more shenanigans and hijinks than when you're under parental supervision.

Each episode has Carly living out her regular life, without letting her fame get to her head. She is an intelligent and honest girl, which makes her a good character for young children to watch.

Another great element of iCarly is the fact that it is very now and current because Carly's show is on the internet. Kids will appreciate that it's not the same old boring storylines that could be transposed into any given decade.

This is the second volume to be released for season 1 and it features twelve episodes on two discs. It also has some special features, such as behind the scenes footage and the pilot episode of True Jackson, VP.

Family Time Factor
: This is not really something older teens would probably enjoy. It's more of a tween thing or perhaps a bit younger. Parents can appreciate it's good plots and appropriate content, but isn't likely to be enjoyed as an entire family venture.

MOTR Grade: C+

iCarly Season 1, Volume 2 releases on DVD April 21! Visit their official site!
