First I’d like to announce that this blog has it’s own Twitter account. This blog has it’s own Twitter account. It’s @RSp1derp1gRevs.
My fellow Seddieshippers, you are most likely here to read my iDo review. I’m afraid that’s not what I’m doing right now. You see, last night I was playing a game on my computer when I decided to go to bed, so I close the game, and open the browser to check my e-mail, like I always do. It’s set to open Hotmail and Twitter every time I start the browser. I clicked the Twitter tab, and what I saw left me speechless. Here is what I saw.
You might not know why is there a video with a image of the Seddie kiss with a frame. I’ll tell you. It’s iStart a Fanwar.
The time has come for the ultimate showdown. Creddie vs Seddie. Only one will win, and we know which one. Seddie!
But why do I say this?
Because yesterday, after I saw the video (which pretty much left me with only vague sounds and aimless gestures), there was a tweet that sparked a battle in my mind. There are a lot of people that ship both mainstream ships. Which will those root for? The answer seems clear, doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t. I, for one, will not think less of any Seddie/Creddie shipper who wants to root for Creddie. Since I got involved in the iCarly fandom, I have witnessed a few fanwars, and even participated in some (back then, when I was an Advanceshipper.)
I give you, my readers, this advice: Whatever we do, support or ship, we have to stick together. There’s no point in saying “Let’s trend Seddie!” when only about 10% of the Seddieshippers in the Twittersphere complied. Next time we do this, we’ll do this right. That means EVERYBODY that has a single spark of Seddie in their heart shall help us reach this incredible goal.
I know it’s still early for a speculation on iSFW, but I got to say this. We have got 4 important bits of information. They are:
- Nathan said in his Ustream that there would be major Seddie AND Creddie,
- Max Ehrich will be playing a character named Adam which will “most likely” be a love interest for Carly. (By “most likely”, I mean “definitely”)
- On the new opening title, we can see a scene from iStart a Fanwar where Sam reaches for Freddie after he just left an angry mob. Whether this means she’s in love with him or not, it shows she cares about him. It all starts like that.
- The script. No, not the band, the band’s awesome, but I don’t mean the band. I mean the script that Dan posted about a year ago. If you don’t know what script I’m talking about, I’ll post a pic below. I need you to try and see the scene, after the Webicon. Go ahead, try it. It makes sense, doesn’t it?
I have so many theories about this image… One day, I’ll share them all with you.
Dearest readers, I come to you bearing bad news. This will be my last review… for a while. My PC is actig kinda weird and is in need of a cleansing, so I decided to reinstall Windows. I won’t even do iDo’s review, not until my PC is back on track.
So, without further adue, here’s my review for iSell Penny-Tees.
Read the rest of this entry
Hello, I’m RobSp1derp1g. You might remember me from such reviews as “iSam’s Mom” and “iKiss”.
Well, I’ve recently been reading some stuff on the script (you know what script I’m talking about…) and noticed this:
Freddie: So, what's in this chicken pot pie? I mean, "chicken" obviously, but what other... Carly: Are you in love or not? Freddie: (LONG BEAT, THEN) Yes. Carly: (SIGHS) But you promised. You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as... Freddie: I didn't say I was in love with you.
Well, this got me thinking. A few weeks ago, Nathan held a Ustream chat where he spoke of Seddie and Creddie, among other things. One thing he said is that there will be an event on iStart a Fanwar that will sway the scales one way or the other. And this came to mind: Read the rest of this entry
“When the moon hits your eyes, like a something, something pie. That’s amore…”
Oh, it’s on again! And I was singing again… Gawd…
Welcome to my iGet Pranky review! In a few moments, we will start reading the review and you will start imagining what it would be like if it was a video review. If, for any reason, you start to feel nausea while reading this review, it’s your problem, not mine. As for emergency exits, there is only one: the small red X on the top-right corner of the screen. Let’s try not to use it…
Shall we begin? And begin we shall!
// Scene: Bushwell Plaza, The iCarly Studio \\
Gibby is standing on a vessel with lots of hair-like objects…
Cotton candy, Gibs? Come on…
What? All of these 10 seconds, Gibby was standing on random hair? You mean it’s not a material with similar qualities and properties than those of hair? That’s surprisingly surprising!!
Manny’s barber shop. Another business saved thanks to iCarly… Is there anything these 3 guys won’t do?
That’s discrimination, Freddie! Although I understand your point.
These are the moments when you realize that the show has come a long way. In the start of the show, Gibby wouldn’t even be allowed in the iCarly studio. Now, there is a time for him to get OFF the studio! Talk about character development!!
Sam starts with the ever-so-random-and-usual insults to Freddie. But this time he tries to fight back. VIEWER WARNING: Any attempt of insulting Samantha ‘Sam’ Puckett after she insulted you, will most likely result in a very expensive hospital bill.
A bleeding pickle. I must admit, the prank’s pretty awesome. But I think the dad got some kind of trauma thanks to it.
I feel sorry for the pickle’s children. My prayers go with mustard.
++ Title Sequence ++
// Scene: Bushwell Plaza, Carly’s bedroom \\
The gang including Gibby are chillin’ out after another successful webcast.
Sam is dead?? NOOO!! She died as she lived. Being lazy… *Phoebe whispers something* Oh, she’s not dead? Oh, that’s a relief…
Carly is playing in Godzilla’s Pearpad Nano. Come on, that thing’s bigger than her…
While Gibby wonders about the history of the hair he has in his hand…
…Freddie releases a baloon he has been filling.
Spencer is calling Gibby. Incessantly.
Why do you want that bucket of hair for? The mind of the Gibmeister.
As Gibby walks through the door, Godzilla’s PearPad Nano is showing one webpage: Dan Schneider’s blog.
Carly: Yes, she’s asleep.
Freddie: You know what I’m gonna say, so there’s no point in me saying it.
Yo, Shay!! Don’t do that again, otherwise Benson over there will pay the price! Two US dollars!
Sam can throw a pillow hard enough to throw someone of a bed. And pillows don’t fly that well. I think that’s because they don’t have wings.
Bleeding pickle… You will be missed.
A wise decision by Carly. But it might be a funny story from Sam…
Now, 2 questions rose to the top of my head:
- How did she make a cop think his feet for cut off?
- How is that a funny prank?
Raisons in a kid’s hat? Freddie, even I have pulled funnier pranks than that…
Doesn’t this conversation remind you guys of anything? Anything at all? Something purple, maybe? That’s right, this is a twisted-and-turned version of the “two friends and a co-worker” part of iKiss. Prove me wrong, Dan! Prove me wrong… Actually don’t, it’s better this way…
Carly has never pulled a prank on anyone… except for knock-knock jokes.
Let me get this straight: when you meet the right person, you will prank them? Okay, but then that person will never want to see you again. Unless your name is Sam and his name is Freddie. Then it’s aaaaaaaaall good.
See, kids? Peer pressure is a good thing!! By the way, I’m being sarcastic!
// Scene: Ridgeway High, Hallway \\
We get to see the Gibmeister in action! For older fans, his reputation is almost as good as Steve Stiffler’s!
A prank involving placing a fish in someone’s locker… Where did I see that before?
Gibby’s way more positive than Freddie. Remember how he reacted?
I’m forced to agree with Sam on this one.
// Scene: Bushwell Plaza, the Shay’s living room \\
Carly is watching an old episode of Drake and Josh with Megan talking on the screen. Instead on wondering why does that little girl look like her, she wonders why is she so good at pranking people.
One word of advice, Carly. If you want to learn something, learn from the best. In this case, Megan Parker.
Spencer’s spoon hat is quite good, actually. Here, in the Portuguese version of Project Runway (in which one of my favorite comedians was a guest judge), a woman tried to do a dress out of spoons. Incredibly, it worked…
Eating soup with a fork… not unprecedented.
“Nothing’s stupid to a guy in a spoon hat.” You gotta admit the truth in that sentence…
Why do you have to go now, Spencer?
“Can you please just respect that? No.”
This is the part where Spencer tells us and his sister what he did.
The title “King” is always prestigious. Try saying “Elvis is the Prince.” It sounds fake.
Notice how the camera zooms on Spencer and the music turns as the scene changes… It seems kinda Hitchcock-ish…
It’s funny how a story on Spencer’s prank record turned into an English class.
Spencer can’t say ‘no’ to a girl wearing a spoon hat.
// Scene: Bushwell Plaza, The iCarly Studio \\
Sam and Freddie just arrived at the iCarly studio after receiving a text message from Carly.
Apparently they got a treat from Nevel…
And that treat is… Carly’s severed head. Carly’s severed head???
Oh, it’s just a prank… pulled by Spencer and Carly…
Remember how someone used to say “Let the rueing begin.”? I say “Let the pranking begin!!”
Spencer is completely out of control! He keeps pranking everyone! Even random strangers!
– Commercial Break –
Spencer is watching TV and it’s his own voice coming out of it. Which leads me to believe that it’s Jerry himself on the TV.
He needs Socko’s lawyer to sign a contract. Great.
You know when Carly is serious when she resorts to murder threats…
I must admit, the Plexiglass in front of the elevator prank is pretty cool.
Baby Spencer doesn’t want to sign a contract.
A shock pen. So old.
But it works on Freddie…
// Scene: Bushwell Plaza, Basement \\
Gibby is now traumatized. He’s still afraid to pee.
“You can’t touch the king!!” I think Elvis said that once.
// Scene: The Groovy Smoothie \\
Glow-in-the-dark face cream? Spencer likes to innovate.
Am I the only one who is in favor of the nunchucks?
// Scene: Bushwell Plaza, 8th floor Hallway \\
Spencer is entering his home.
There is a class reunion in his house.
Carly decides to record the intervention on video. And during the time that she takes to get her camera, Spencer is beaten up. I’d like to say Karma, but I won’t…
~~ Seddie moments!! ~~
- In the beginning, Sam throws the pillow at Freddie, even though he did nothing.
- The conversation about pranks was reminiscent of the “first kiss” talk on iKiss.
- The dead fish prank was first mentioned on iKiss.
- The shock pen bit. We all thought it was a taser or something…
And some more I must have missed.
== My opinion ==
It was a very funny episode, as it is to be expected.
When we think we know everything there is to know about Spencer, Dan drops this on top of us.
And now, I’d like to pay my respects to someone who passed away last night.
RIP Bleeding Pickle

Beloved Father, Son, Husband and Snack
Hello, my good people of Earth! Having a good time? Me too.
Since I’m in a somewhat visitor streak, I’ve decided to make another review! This time the episode will be…
That’s right, it’s iSpeed Date review time.
Now a few of you guys will most likely go like, “Say what?” or “What the…?” or even “Bloody hell!”
To those I say only this: read the review. I’ll explain later why I’m reviewing this episode.
Read the rest of this entry
My friends, the time has come. On September 11th, 2010, a new person was introduced to us. Their name: Pam Puckett. Her game: you don’t wanna know…
As you might know, Phoebe’s back from her time off and she has a Seddie-themed soundboard. So prepare for more sounds. *clapping sounds*
Now, as Gibby would say: “Let’s do this!”
The episode starts with Carly entering the iCarly studio, and Freddie’s there doing some sort of thing to the camera.
Of course Sam’s not here yet! The episode has barely began!!
“Are those new pants?” While I might regret what I’m about to say, how did Carly know those were new pants? But those pants are pretty cool…
Oh, and Freddie’s hip-swivel. Totally normal gesture. When I have a new pair of pants, I swivel my hips to show them off… By the way, I was being sarcastic!
“They sell pants for men now.” “Then you should have bought some.” Oh, Carly… When did you start to mess with Freddie, in the Sam way?
I thing I have to mention, or else it’s gonna get forgotten. Is it just me, or does Gibby look a lot like Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama? The only thing that’s missing is the “Whoop whoop whoop” while clapping his claws… And that is a disturbing thought.
Every time a TV host cuts something out of the show’s alignment because they’re out of time, they are clearly kidding…
You’re mad, Gibby? You shouldn’t be. You know why? Because she warned you!!!
Freddie’s punchline kills me! “Would you say you’re… steamed?” Not the most appropriated word when talking to a boy with fake lobster claws. And now would be the time for Dr. Zoidberg’s Whoop whoop…
It was funny, Carly, admit it. But Gibby didn’t find that line that much funny.
A little etiquette lesson from Sam. Phoebe, some soft violin music, please.
*Soft violin music starts playing*
How to correctly enter a room:
Step 1: You step by the door and wait until someone’s talking.
Step 2: As soon as you know that someone’s talking, you barge in asking for anti-itch cream.
And that’s the correct way to enter a room.
Courtesy of whoever did it first, I don’t feel like checking names.
Cut the music, Phoebe.
*Soft violin music stops*
Whoa, Sam’s not responding to Freddie with insults? I think she’s ill…
Oh, that explains it. Mrs. Puckett has been driving her daughter insane. I feel kinda bad for Sam…
Why am I not surprised? Sam eating chicken. (A small personal note.: My mom’s a big fan of iCarly.
But she doesn’t know the TV show’s name. So, she calls it “Fried Chicken”. And when she sees Jennette McCurdy, she goes “That’s the girl from “Fried Chicken.”)
5, 4, 3, 2, and Sam keeps talking… This footage is for the blooper reel, or something on “Candid Camera”…
Freddie’s ultracool attitude is incredible. Really, he’s so calm and collected when he says that…
Maybe ’cause he’s not the one on camera…
Well, better late than never, I always say…
Let’s see the new opening credits! *Leave It All to Me starts playing*
~~ Opening Credits Analysis ~~
The first clear difference is the layout of the browser winder, I mean, window. It now has tabs! One with Hungry Girl’s website and one with Schneider’s Bakery e-mail account. Did you update that browser, Dan?
Wow, some new special effects! Rockin’! Did Sam just tase Freddie? Why is Sam spanking Freddie’s butt? And for my fellow Seddiers, a little fun fact. If you see when Sam is spanking Freddie, the clips on the right are from (from top to bottom: iTwins, iMeet Fred and iThink They Kissed. You know what this means, right?)
I just saw an image that created this line in my head. “My name is Shay. Spencer Shay” Spencer as a secret agent. Awesomeness…
What’s up with all of that Staff people? And why is Freddie disoriented. And you can tell that Sam’s worried about him, just by the way she reaches for Freddie. I saw this Viking-looking guy, so I take this is footage from Webicon 2010.
The ending shot was cool. The starting fourm, as I call them, holding random objects.
~~ Opening Credits Analysis Ended~~
++ Setting: Bushwell Plaza – Carly’s new and technologically ultra-advanced room ++
Carly is sleeping peacefully in her bed. Something is bound to happen. It HAS to happen.
Ah, a burglar is in Carly’s ro… Oh, it’s just Sam… Ah, Sam is in Carly’s room! I’d prefer if it was a burglar.
And she keeps rambling about something, but I can’t quite figure out what.
Maybe it’s the way Miranda said the line, but I think “it’s 4 o’clock in the freaking morning” doesn’t sound correct here. But Dan’s the TV producer, not me.
What better time to move in to someone’s house than at 4 o’clock in the morning? Maybe 4 o’clock in the afternoon, but Sam Puckett isn’t like other people…
You see? Spencer and I had the same thoug… A sand duster, Spencer? Really?
Let’s get this straight: Someone picks your lock at 4 o’clock in the morning, you are forced to share the room with them, and your brother was going to make eggs at their request, WILLINGLY? My goodness, the world’s going insane…
Carly does not have lice, Spencer, why are you using the sand duster on her?
// During the scene transition \\
The computer that supposedly contains all iCarly video files has 2 operating systems, one built into the other! We have Windows on the background, but the layout of the video-editing software is from a Mac! I never got to mention that in a review or anything like that.
++ Setting: The Groovy Smoothie ++
Spy Glasses: A new item for personal surveillance. Keep you and your family safe and sound thanks to these innovative glasses. They include a tiny video camera that will for sure make your life miserable. The price: only 10 dollars. Can you put a price on your family’s safety? I thought so. And if you could, it would not be 10 dollards. SPY GLASSES! They keep you safe. Or not. Available at the Schneider chain store.
A flash chip that can hold up to 6 hours of video? Awesome! I want some of those glasses!
Freddie and Gibby looking at blondes… You are an evil genius, Dan… Come on, Gibby! You have a girlfriend! Tasha? Ring any bells?
Freddie, I have a very strong opinion on these cases. And it goes like this: You should have started to “capture the moment on video” the moment those 2 girls walked in!
Gibby’s dream is to be a movie direction. His professionalism when he says “action”. He has talent.
I know for a fact that the “dumb blonde” thing is not true. But those girls are incredibly stupid. It sounds like when Josh walked into a guitar store and asks “Do you sell guitars?”
Ah, a burglar just walked into the Groovy Smoot… Yep, it’s a burglar. Ah, a burglar just walked into the Groovy Smoothie!!! Call the police! Or Sam! Or the police and Sam! Anything!
Dan, let me tell you something. This is one of the best TV/movie staged robberies I’ve ever seen.
“He’s getting away!” No chiz, lady!
Gibby, the kid who saved the d… Gosh, darn it!
T-Bo’s reaction was priceless! “That guy took over 300 bucks! Jerk!”
There’s nothing to be ashamed of, Gibby. You were slower than him, and that’s okay.
Awesome. The Groovy Smoothie has been robbed, the identity of the thief is a mistery, and T-Bo’s principal concern are the cables. Groovy. Sorry for the bad pun.
“Shut up!” “True chiz!” Look at this incredible interaction… He saved the store, and instead of the rightful recognition Freddie deserved, he gets… a coupon. Buy 12 smoothies and get the smoothie number 13 with 10% off price. That is a bargain.
++ Setting: The Shay’s appartment ++
Sam is watching TV and Carly is walking down the stairs.
A half-eaten what?
That’s kinda obvious, Sam!
New Penny-T! “Bacon Farm”. Makes sense, when you think about it…
Something’s obviously wrong. Sam leaving her pan…, I mean, underwear in the stairs?
And I actually prefer underwear.
“Celebrities Under Water” returns! I wish it was a real show. It’d be cool to see Megan Fox swimming…
Sam deleted Spencer’s Celebrities Under Water? AHHHHHHHH!!
It’s clear that Spencer is not informed… “STAIRS, STAIRS, STAIRS.”
Of course you are, Spencer, everyone would be.
== Timeskip to The Groovy Smoothie ==
Freddie is upset. T-Bo gave him a coupon and when he tries to redeem it, T-Bo won’t accept it.
Oh, the coupon’s expired.
T-Bo’s getting interviewed! By Dave Mercer. The newscaster T-Bo watches 2, maybe 3 times a year.
He had to buy new cables!!
T-Bo’s face is priceless!
Freddie now gets the recognition he deserves. And even some more.
He’s Freddie Benson, lives in Bushwell Plaza, in apartment 8D. And he’s never kissed a girl. oh, wait, that was last time…
That’s it, Freddie is done for.
== Timeskip to: The Shay’s apartment ==
Carly just got home. Sam has nearly destroyed her kitchen.
The way Carly speedwalks to the kitchen is incredible.
Carly tries to reason with Sam. Without success. It’s like the saying goes. If at first you don’t succeed,…
call Pam Puckett.
Introducing Mama’s mama, Pam Puckett! Portrayed by Jane Lynch. An amazing actress for an amazing part.
“You don’t deserve my parts!” Now we see where Sam Puckett got her replies from…
“Who told you that? Your parole officer?” “At least I call my parole officer!” I think there should be one parole officer for every member of the Puckett family. Except for Melanie, but you never know…
“Why don’t you take a bath?” “‘Cause you didn’t pay the water bill!” Clever!
## Commercial break ##
++ Same setting as above ++
That is definitely the biggest bag of beans I’ve ever seen. Now say that 3 times. Come on, I dare you.
The Pucketts are a tornado. Wherever they go, they leave a trail of destruction and insults. Mostly destruction.
Welcome, Mrs. Benson! I see you packed your bags…
“Why does your chest look all thick?” “I’ve been working out. You know, pushups and milk.” Milk? Milk can develop your physical constitution? Hmm, maybe I should drink some more myself. *goes get milk*
*comes back* Here I am, with a glass of milk.
A bullet-proof vest? Then what do I do with the milk? *looks at the milk* Well, I might as well… *drinks the milk*By the way, you can’t say Freddie’s not prepared… “That’s quite a sports bra…”
And people say iCarly isn’t educational. Bullet-proof vests are made of kevlar.
Boiling the silverware? Oh, my God…
++ Setting: Pschneider Psychiatric Center ++
They don’t have anything sharp in their pockets. Now, can you help them, Mr. Doctor Psychiatric Shrink.
Carly feared for her life…
We get to see Pam Puckett’s legendary dating skills in use. That’s a previlege.
“Pardon my mommy’s desperation.” “Pardon my daughter’s personality.” This is a proof of how great an actress Jennette McCurdy is.
== Timeskip to: The Shay’s apartment ==
I feel bad for Carly. For 2 days in a row, she comes home to find a person she didn’t invite into her house using her kitchen.
“Carly Shay, webshow host”.
We are introduced to Gunsmoke. He’s a bodyguard. Now, I must say something. This is discrimination from Mrs. Benson. She only wants to guard Freddie’s body? What about Freddie’s mind and soul? Can they be mauled by Shadowhammer? Apparently they can!
A hole in his leg as big as his thumb? if he wasn’t shot, how did the hole get there?
If Gunsmoke was a robot, this is how he’d see the setting:
Potentiality as a lethal weapon: moderate, if thrown to the head, otherwise, none
Fun to destroy: Oh, yeah!
That’s why he destroyed it.
Correction, Spencer, Freddie need to be protected from you as well. Remember the fire on the ringbell down on the lobby? That’s what I’m talking about.
== Timeskip to: Pschneider Psychiatric Center ==
Remember what I said about the Pucketts? I reiterate my previous statement.
Unless they express their feelings through fights and screams, it’s true, Mr. Doctor Psychiatric Shrink.
I think that was a compliment.
They’re not jewish… Great remark by Sam.
They can’t stay 5 seconds without fighting…
They are forced to talk to get out of there. Let’s see how long it lasts.
== Timeskip to: The Shay’s Apartment ==
Spencer, Gunsmoke and Carly are watching a movie.
Freddie’s following a special diet, forced by his mom.
“The Killing War” sounds (and apparently is) violent.
And lemonade’s for ballerinas, apparently.
++ Transition to: Pschneider Psychiatric Center ++
Sam and Pam are still at it.
Geez, fighting on and on like that for 9 hours? Sam and Pam may be crazy, but the doctor just reached the border of insanity.
Great, now all 3 are in there with no chance of escaping a certain death. Oh, sorry, turned my eyes to the TV for a moment, Indiana Jones is on.
This is a 3-way not-so-random discussion, brought to you by Pschneider Psychiatric Center.
== Timeskip to: the Shay’s apartment ==
I gotta tell ya, if my mom was like Mrs. Benson, I’d have moved out a LONG time ago.
VENGEANCE OF THE SPENCER!! I’m betting Freddie’s getting payback for all those Baby Spencer segments.
Spencer’s idea is actually good…
And Gunsmoke is watching Full House…
== Timeskip to: Pschneider Psychiatric Center ==
Sam, Pam and Carly are trapped in the therapy box.
We find that Sam had a bunny named Fluffles, and he was sold. To foreigners. What kind of foreigners would want a bunny?Also, Sam tells Pam that she sabotaged her mom’s relationship witha rich doctor called Steven, by telling him she got hit by a bus.
Now, for me, this is the best line of the episode: “What’s iCarly?” It’s so epic!!
“They’re both horrible in their own ways!” Is that any way to talk to one’s best friend and her mother?
“Nyehhh! Nyehhh!” I have a theory. I think that whatever the goat did on Carly’s birthday, she got something in her. That would explain her goat-like screams.
“You got girl cramps?” It kills me.
Aww, Sam. This was your second major act of altruism anyone has ever seen. You know what the first was…
A sentimental moment between the two Pucketts.
I can hear Sam’s voice starting to crack. Was she supposed to do that?
They kiss and make up. While Carly crawls on the floor screeching like a goat, due to her claustrophobia.
And Spencer’s idea worked, as impossible as it may seem.
My opinion on the episode: From the moment I found out that Jane Lynch was gonna be in the episode, I knew it was impossible for the episode not to be funny. And I was right! This was one of the best iCarly episodes ever. Jane’s performance was incredible! Actually, “incredible” seems like an understatement. Sam and Pam’s interaction is off-the-charts awesome. The new credits are fantastic, really.
So, until we meet again, have a Seddietastic Seddietember and have your daily Seddie fix!
