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.
The crazy situations that Sam, Carly, Freddie and Spencer get into make for a big amount of laughs every episode!
"Carly and the gang are back with all ten episodes from the fourth season in iCarly: The Complete 4th Season!
