Looking back… How 2011 went.

The year of Our Lord 2011 is quickly approaching its ending, and 2012 will be here in a few days. First, I want to assure you that in 2012, you will NOT see the end of the world.

Next, a reminder, we will be having 2 NEW iCarly episodes coming up next week…

Now, as the year comes to an end, we shall look back to 2011 and see what happened this year that shall be remembered… Steven, please play the inspirational music, please.

In January, we got unofficial news, we found out about iOMG…

In February, we were introduced to Cort and Ashley, and finally, the Great iCarly Hunger of 2010 had come to an end. Also, we told the story of Jimmy, a young man who wanted to meet Jennette McCurdy.

In March, we pitied Nevel (some more than others) and we got the official confirmation that 310 existed and was called iOMG and that it would rock our worlds… Also, we got word that Jimmy finally met Jennette McCurdy. His dream had finally come true… Also, my blog was hacked by GLaDOS from Portal, so yeah, didn’t know that Aperture Science had knowledge of this blog.

On April 9th, there was a major earthquake all over the globe… The epicenter of this earthquake was located, well, on the location of the central servers for Twitter. Oh, man, you should have seen it… The world stared in awe and happiness as Seddie finally happened, without a word of warning or advice… That is, not to all of us… Our friends over at Bickering Sidekicks have their own moles, and they are good. Also in April, we traveled through time to the future and changed the future of iCarly (when it comes to airdates), were mentioned in a Canadian magazine (first America Junior, then America!) There were problems with the Other Side (pardon my Fringe-like speech), and problems with the Powers That Be, but everything worked out for the best…

The month of May went by without much of anything that mattered, except for a curious blog post on iCarly.com, in which Freddie answered questions…

The same thing happened with June, except that was the premiere of iParty With Victorious, which was correctly labeled as the “Ultimate Crossover Event”. We saw the first promo for iLost My Mind, the result of my time travel. Also, we welcomed BabelLeef into the team (we even had a party, I’ll post the pictures someday; no, we didn’t…). We posted our theory as to why is Sam in love with Freddie.

As for July, it only saw the the airing of the extended version of iParty With Victorious.

Now, August, that was a whole another story… August brought us the epicness that was iLost My Mind that officialized Seddie as a couple. Here are five words that will make every fangirl shiver. “I guess we’re both insane…” Also, there was another fanwork that caught the attention of the public. I’m talking, of course, about the Troubled Waters Mental Hospital wristbands! We also taught people how to look for micro-expressions… But not all was good in August… 2 amazing people left this occupation… SarcasticLeaves and LaneTea. They are still alive and are still fans of iCarly, but they stopped reviewing iCarly. They were 2 of the 3 people who inspired me to do this blog, and I have to thank them for the size it grew to. Thank you! Wish I can meet you someday!

September was, perhaps, after April and August, the best month for iCarly. It gave us the ENTIRE SEDDIE ARC!! Also, a community-based Seddie Mind Movie which I haven’t completed due to lack of time and awareness.

October gave us iQ, and we became host to a Secret Diary of a Seddie Shipper.

In November, nothing happened. Really, it seems that the world took vacations…

Now, in December, there’s 2 new iCarly episodes in the same week. I believe that is unprecedented…

My buddies, friends and faithful readers, we may be reaching the end of 2011, but this blog, to quote an old wise man, is “barely beginning.” So, prepare your glasses and join me, as we take a step forward into the new year, in which you will be able to read more reviews of mine and laugh until you’re on the ground having seizures.

See you on the new year!

iLost My Mind airdate revealed

We, at Rob’s iCarly Reviews, just got word that iLost My Mind will air on August 13th.

We got that info from my friend @AgoraLocoPhobic who got his copy of Entertainment Weekly, which included the airdate for iLMM.

Here’s what was written:

Jim Parsons Guest Stars On iCarly
Ready to see Jim Parsons in his craziest role ever? The Big Bang Theory star will appear in the August 13 episode of the Nickelodeon show as Caleb, a friendly psychiatric patient who claims to be from the year 2077. He encounters Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and her pals at the facility that Sam (Jennette McCurdy) checks herself into after falling for Freddie (Nathan Kress) “Carly is pretty nuch the one person who’s certain that he’s insane.” Cosgrove says of Caleb. “But, once he tells her her future, and it’s something she really likes, then she starts to become a believer.”

If you look back at last year, you can see that August 13th happens to be my birthday. So what a gift this is!

So, until my next post, stay safe, stay frosty, stay awesome!

Strap on your seat belts. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

Hello, my friends! I’m super excited, so I’m gonna cut to the chase.

Dan Schneider (@Danwarp) just posted a blog post about iCarly and Victorious. It contained info on the new iCarly episodes for the new season!

Remember iLost My Mind? The episode Nickelodeon gave us a promo for a few weeks ago. It’s part of a storyline!

The titles are iLost My Mind, iDate Sam and Freddie, iCan’t Take It, and iLove You.

Apart from iLost My Mind, all titles are temporary. They may be the real ones or not.

We also got news about the iPsycho sequel, iStill Psycho, and iMeet The First Lady!

Want to know what Dan himself said? Read this!

Discuss, people!!!

Am I dead? ‘Cause this seems like heaven…

There is a place where everything is good. Where there is no pain, no harm, and everyone is happy.

Some call it Heaven, some call it Nirvanna (2 n’s), others call it Capeside, Massachusetts.

Its true name is, Seddieland, also known as Seddie Heaven. Located around Seattle, Washington.

Why I say this? Take a look:

This is the official promo for the episode I saw while on the future. And the promo STILL gets to me…

And I’ll be a good friend and over-analyze it, like I did with the iOMG one!

Let’s get to work!

We are shown a part of the iOMG kiss. Then, the drama, so to speak, begins.

“Nothing will prepare you for what happens NEXT!” I disagree. Time travel does.

You can see what happens here, Sam is behind a door with a glass window. This could be the Troubled Waters Mental Hospital.

“This August…” It’s my birthday!!

Mrs. Benson hired a P.I. A so not-unlike-her thing to do. And he’s fully equipped, complete with raincoat, sunglasses and hat.

Freddie’s dating Sam… Oh, and you’re gonna love this:

It’s safe to say that Mrs. Benson doesn’t want Sam and Freddie to be together. But that doesn’t make her a Creddie shipper.

And another thing, or rather, two things:

You can see both Sam and Freddie going in for a kiss. Both Sam and Freddie are okay with it, and we can perceive that the iOMG kiss is no longer a problem at all. Also, Carly’s happy. Not “meh” happy, she’s genuinely happy.

“Are Sam and Freddie in love?”

“Sam loves Freddie! Sam loves Freddie!” This scene seems to me that it is before the previous scene.

“Will Carly keep them together?”

“I’m just supposed to sit here and wait for you guys to have a fight so I can settle it?”
“Pretty much!”
“We’d really appreciate it…” I can’t, for the life of me, do two things. Figure out how they get there, and not laugh when I hear this line…

“And the biggest question of all…” Have I lost my mind?

Lookie here:

Carly has her arms up in the first pic, but she’s not forcing them to kiss… If she was, Sam wouldn’t have her hand on Freddie’s forearm… Think about it.

Coming on August, 2011.

Amazing! Be ready!!

And I said there’d be a HUGE REVELATION on this post. Well, follow my train of thought.

The purple restaurant scene and the one where they are kissing in the kitchen were shot on the first week of production. The Troubled Waters Mental Hospital scenes were shot on the second. This leads me to say that this MIGHT be a 40-minute episode.

RobSp1derp1g out!!

SUPER HUGE SPOILER ALERT!!!

Here at RobSp1derp1g’s iCarly Reviews, we don’t know the meaning of the word “stop”. So, if we find something even remotely interesting, we jump right on it, with my faithful companion, Phoebe, and my trademark shovel.

This time, we found ourselves some really awesome news. This is a piece of news that completely rocks the free world, though not like iOMG.

Having said this, I will now announce the spoiler. This spoiler is not to be taken lightly.

The First Lady of the United States, or FLOTUS1, as her nickname on the Simpsons, will guest star on iCarly! It’s not every day that a renowned world figure will guest star on a show like iCarly.

To this I say only one thing, The Land of the Free and The Home of the Brave!

And now, I wanted to leave you with a version of the Star-Sprangled Banner played on an electric guitar, but I couldn’t embed it on the blog.

iPity The Nevel review

Hello, and again, welcome to RobSp1derp1g’s iCarly Reviews computer-aided blog. We hope the time you spent watching iPity The Nevel has been a pleasant one. The episode has been processed, and we are now ready to begin the review proper. Before we start, however, keep in mind that although fun and learning are the primary goals of all the blog’s posts, serious injuries may occur. For your own safety, and the safety of others, please refrain from stop reading this review until it’s finished. If you finish the review, there will be cake. The review will start in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

First of all, I’d like to apologize. This episode’s review came a little later than the rest, due to my personal life and iOMG been being announced and all the subsequent speculation that followed.

This episode of iCarly contains vampires, which will give me an unique oportunity to write a lot of vampire jokes, most of them shamelessly copied from Vampires Suck. No copyright infringment intended.

Oh, and one more thing: *Mr. T voice* I pity the fool who isn’t excited to see iOMG Part 2. If anyone was insulted, my apologies.

Freddie’s sitting at the computer, while Spencer is sitting in the couch, doing something…

Freddie’s editing a mini video for iCarly.com. Oh, my mistake, turns out he’s “Frediting”. I don’t really know what that is. Carly kinda laughs at the joke.

“You really thought that was funny?” “No…” You have to admit, Freddie, that joke was kinda lame.

“What’s Fredly working on?” Well, Fredly’s work… Wait… Fredly?

“Look what I made!” Spencer, calm down, your sister’s talking…

What is an egg shooter? I’m afraid to know the answer.

So, it’s a water gun that was converted to use raw eggs… Neat. Does it work?

I should have foreseen that…

I don’t know if you guys know that TV show “Heroes”, it was about a bunch of people who had extraordinary abilities. Some would fly, some read minds, some controlled the space-time continuum. Well, it turns out that our friend Spencer here has the power of pyrokinesis. Create fire from nothing. Either that or a really cool special effect.

“A perfect Christmas gift”? I’m afraid I didn’t really understand this line.

Here comes Sam, she’s really in a hurry about a video that’s online…

“Going down!” Freddie has crashed…

I was unaware that Spencer knew another Nevel, and he’s a pianist.

“I’m gonna go ride bikes with Socko…” You do that, Spence…

The video is about Nevel. He has yelling at a little girl because she bumped into him and made him brake the last jar of some kind of pickles…

And they celebrate the downfall of Nevel A. Papperman…

Title Sequence

Location: iCarly studio, broadcasting live
——————————————

The best way to prove ice is cold is: a) place a Gibby in a bathtub full of ice or b) insert water in the freezer. From then on, it’s a personal choice.

Whoa… Wait a minute. Maybe it’s my polluted mind (as my brother calls it), or does the following line have a double meaning?

Sam: “That proves it.”
Carly: “Ice is very cold.”
Sam: “Cold enough to freeze your Gibbys.”

I think it does…

iCarly premiere time. It’s time for the long-anticipated premiere of… of… *whispers* what’s the film name? Oh, right. Moonlight Twi-blood…

As Sam puts it, a vampire flick nobody needs or wants…

Let’s analyze Moonlight Twi-blood, a more terrible movie than “Kelly Cooper: Terrible Movie”.

It’s the Cowboy and the Idiot Farm Girl Who Thought The Cowboy (“Cowboy” is read “Ca-buy”) was a Vampire.

The Idiot Farm Girl wants a vampire as a boyfriend… That’s totally what the girl on Twilight would do…

Introducing Fredward Cullen. He’s “eviler” than Edward Cullen and but still not funnier than Edward Sullen.

Notice the vampire voice. Attention ladies: he’s single! The only downfall is that he’ll stay that age for all eternity. The only thing that doesn’t is… Oh, I won’t say it, kids read this blog.

According to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you have to invite a vampire in order for him to go inside your house.

He pulled out the fangs. Look how pointy his fangs are…

Time for some narration:

“On the cold and dark (and wet) streets of Seattle, an Idiot Farm Girl has invited a vampire to her house… No one should do that. xoxo Gossip Girl”

She really wants him to be her vampire boyfriend… her VBF. ‘Cause that’s what she wants.

To computer experts much like myself, the letters VBF mean something entirely different.

But he can’t… he’s a monster… Come on, Fredward, there’s no need for that kind of low self-esteem… Kinda reminds me, of “You’re the fourth Jonas Brother” “I’m a killer!”

And if he tries to kiss the Idiot Farm Girl, he might bite her neck, you know, in a murderous fashion.

“You’re stupid…”

Time for some more narration:

“While the full moon is up there in the screen, I mean, sky, an evil vampire gang who looks like the Black Eyed Peas is trying to take over the world.” Oh, you know that’s not true, but still…

Fredward Cullen is in a love triangle. Those are always cool!!!

George!! Haven’t seen you in a while, you know, since you were FIRED!

George is fun to be around and he’s great with kids… but, he has a huge flaw that won’t allow him to be with the vampire… he’s a bra.

If every vampire did what Fredward did, there’d be much less victims of vampirism…

The End.

Now we get to see the Nevel video again…

“That’s why America now hates Nevel Papperman” They hated him first because of that awful review about them…

“We were ahead of the curve…”

Contoods!

“Goodnight nurse!”

Here comes the Gibster!

A Karma party is a party where you celebrate the failure and disappointments of your enemies. But remember, Carly, Karma works both ways…

“Just desserts.” This may have been the best applied line of dialog Freddie has ever had until this moment in time. Very good placement and acting…

————————————–
Location: Carly Shay’s Karma Party
————————————–

Welcome to the iCarly Karma Party! You celebrate the failure of Nevel Papperman. We got good tunes, piñatas, darts and the ladies get 1 drink free!

Chicken Karmesan?

Freddie’s been approached by 3 beautiful girls…

Whoa, apparently, Fredward Cullen’s voice makes even the most boring speech seem interesting.

Who’s the redheaded girl? I’ve seen her somewhere. I’m just not sure where that was…

Also, for fun, notice the blond girl.

Karma corn, Karma apples… What’s this?

“To Nevel’s misery!!”

————————————–
Location: Streets of Seattle
————————————–

Here he is, Nevel Papperman, walking in the streets of Seattle and drinking juice from a packet. Is his mom still in that cruise?

Please note how he carries with him a box (packet, bundle, whatever) of juice. Normally, hobos carry a bottle in a paper bag. Just letting you know.

Please notice the highlighted area. It’s too much for poor Nevel to see the reason for his downfall on a sitting bench like that. I mean, it’s because of Schneider’s All Varieties Gourmet Pickles that he is where he is. And he gets hit in the face with a burger.

And it starts raining on top of him.

And he gets wet. By a guy with a hose. Karma… It works in mysterious and weird ways…

——————————-
Transition to: Carly’s Karma Party
——————————-

The three girls from the other picture just left.

“Karmagain.” Understandable pun…

“One final toast to the downfall of Nevel Papperman!” Samantha, I’ll drink to that!

Liquid soap, Gibby?

Uh, Freddie’s got a text. From one of those 3 girls that left at the start of this scene. Here’s what she wrote:

“Freddie, you are so, so hot.” After he reads the text, he proceeds to giggle like a girl. Understandable, I’d do the same. But, so far, no girls have called me hot.

This is one of the moments in this episode that would be explained later on the show, namely about 3 weeks later.

“Man, what is it with girls? A guy acts like a stupid vampire on a screen and they get all floppy.”

Have you guys noticed that Sam employs the word “stupid” a lot more than the rest of the characters? I wonder why…

There’s a knock on the door. It’s the door to “The Twilight Zone.” Or maybe it’s “The Scary Door”, the Twilight Zone’s parody from Futurama.

Notice how the house is decorated. Full of anti-Nevel stuff. Imagine how Nevel would feel when he sees that.

It’s Nevel! I’m not here! –hides behind the kitchen counter-

“Nevel?”
“What’s he doing here?”
(in vampire voice) “I don’t know…”
Notice that Sam didn’t like that.

———————————–
Commercial Break
———————————–

Back to Bushwell Plaza.

Nevel is tied up in a not so comfortable position… with his hands tied to his feet.

But he complains about the fact that Gibby eats the pudding loudly.

“You hate us!” And not like Sam hates Freddie. Oh no, Rob, you didn’t…

Nevel makes an awesome heartfelt speech, but Gibby’s conclusion is the chiz. “This pudding rocks!”

“I hope you’ll be kind enough to untie me because I’ve lost all feeling in my hands and feet.”

He wants to show the world he regrets his behavior.

You’re willing to prove you’re a changed man, boy, person?

Sam never stops to amaze me…

What is this, Fear Factor? Nevel’s gonna have to dring half a can of Wahoo Punch from Sam’s sweaty sneaker. If he pulls this off, well, nothing’ll happen.

Sam carries a dead cricket in her sneaker… Not surprising.

Everyone’s reaction is the same. Disgust.

—————————
Location: The Groovy Smoothie
—————————

The iCarly gang is getting ready to record a part of the show from the Groovy Smoothie. Meanwhile Freddie gets an unexpected visitor.

Patrice approached Freddie. She’s clearly nervous, as indicated by her slight lip licking.

“Did you like what you saw?” “A lot.”

Freddie’s got himself a potential date… Again, Freddie, wait 3 weeks.

About this image there is few to say and much to admire. Freddie just asked the girls to allow him to make more vampire stuff on iCarly. Carly’s happy face indicates that she’s happy (duh) that Freddie’s having luck with girls. Sam, on the other hand, not so much. You can see she’s a little bothered by his success with the ladies.

Also, is that a compass she’s carrying around her neck? I thought I was the only one who did that…

This next moment is the previous scene in video form.

“America’s nr. 1 dipwad.” “Former dipwad.”

Let me get this straight, he’s screamed at a little girl, and to show how sorry he is, he offers people smoothies that he paid for and creamed corn made by him. I’m not convinced…

The recipe for the creamed corn comes from Nevel’s Grandpappy Papperman…

So, 1 error on this image.

We see www.danwarp.com on the address bar, but the site is iCarly.com.

Despite Nevel’s efforts, Stacey isn’t buying.

Funny how CreddieManiac is quoting Sam, isn’t it?

And what is HungryLisa saying?

What is Spencer doing? Counting screws. ‘Cause he’s bored…

Aw, come on, Nevel! You know that’s not true… Not everybody hates you… Just a big group of people…

Not even advice you can give them, Spence. They don’t want it either…

Nevel’s being attacked! By a headache!

Carly’s conforting Nevel… It’s amazing how Internet-induced shame can do to some people. And lookie here:

Notice the color of the circle on Nevel’s laptop… Yeah…

“No one’s truly gonna believe I truly feel bad about what I did.” Now that’s true, Nevel.

So, Carly hatches together a plan to help Nevel apologize to the world. And she means it.

Spencer, why are you placing butter upon your face?

——————————————
Location: iCarly studio, broadcasting live
——————————————

Gibby was just bitten by an African blowfish, who likes human flesh. Sometimes I wonder why he keeps doing this to himself.

Now look at this:

You can see the “On-line” sign above the door. I just noticed it and I absolutely loved it!

Also, you can see that Miranda is taller than Jennette. I did not know that.

Nevel is apologizing to the world.

“I, Nevel Amadeus Papperman, …” Amadeus?

In this image, no words were required or were provided. When the camera shows Sam, she shrugs, meaning she doesn’t believe that Nevel’s sorry.

Did Nevel just toss the paper?

A truly heartfelt speech from a truly ashamed and regretful webmaster.

A heart-warming moment between Nevel and Molly, the little girl at who he yelled.

Aww… Carly’s a little emotional.

Spencer shows up with absolutely nothing to say.

—————————
Location: The Groovy Smoothie
—————————

Freddie’s on a date with Patrice. You know, the girl who asked him out earlier that week.

She just dumped him. She claims “the vampire thing has played out”. What? No it hasn’t! Look at the Twilight saga, which is parodied in this episode.

Werewolf type? What? Is this a Team Jacob thing?

“Let’s roll.” Gibbeh…

Doesn’t Tasha get jealous? “We’re not exclusive.”

Nevel arrived at the Groovy Smoothie. I don’t think I’ve seen him on the Groovy Smoothie before.

He’s in debt with the iCarly crew.

And the story repeats itself…

“Aw, chiz.”

Again I’d like to apologize for the lateness of this review. My personal life has been interfering with my review schedule (yeah, I have one of those) and then iOMG was announced.

Thank you for reading my reviews.

iOMG review – From the future

*two flashes of light followed by two trails of flames on the ground*
*lots of smoke and the sound of a door opening*
*coughs by two people*

Rob: Holy chiz, Doc! I still can’t believe he said that! Thanks! Now that I know this, my life has changed.
Doc: You know, Rob, you can’t tell anyone about what you’ve seen! If you do that, the space-time continuum will collapse!
Rob: Don’t worry, Doc, I won’t. If I need to go back in time, I know when to find you.
Doc: Take care, Rob!
Rob: You too, Doc! You too!

Hey, guys! This is RobSp1derp1g, straight from the future! To those who believe me, good. To those who don’t, check this out!

iOMG is an appropriate title…

…however, I’m feeling down.

If you doubt my motives as a Seddie Warrior, look around you. I wouldn’t have built this if I wasn’t a full fledged Seddieshipper.

The reason for me being down is different. I’m jealous.

No, not jealous of Nathan (well, i guess I kinda am, but that’s not the point). I’m jealous of all the Seddieshippers who got to see it first-hand.

I was watching the episode, and I didn’t see the kiss. I know it’s not your fault, but I am… The damn stream had to fail right then…

I don’t know what to do, that’s all…

I’ll try to sleep it off.

The written review should be out tomorrow.

iOMG promos over-analysis. Another Rob’s Reviews Exclusive!

I said I would, didn’t I? I’ve watched the promos, and I all can say is “Freaking awesome!”

Also, I’d like to make a prediction, after I’m done. you will be saying Oh My God twice. At least.

Let’s get over-analyzing!

The promo starts with Sam and Freddie arm-wrestling, it serves as a way to show her tough girl side.

Then, some clips of Sam picking on Freddie. Y’all have already seen this.

Here’s a shocker, Sam’s in love.

Carly foolishly thinks it’s with Brad…

“And iCarly will never be the same…”

Freddie pushes a button on his laptop and looks ahead, possibly at Sam.
Sam looks straight forward, towards Freddie, maybe.

Carly’s giving Sam some encouraging words, telling her to make a move, to “have a little faith”. (Prison Break reference)

And now, the reason that brought me here today. Sam and Freddie’s civilized personal conversation.

If you look at Sam during the conversation, you’ll see Sam’s usual tough girl attitude has faded. She’s actually listening to him, and her body language, is really showing something she’d rather hide. You can see she’s fighting something, and she’s losing. She’s making a lot of involuntary gestures, and that shows us body language. I wish I could see Sam’s camera angle during that whole speech.
And Carly’s truly surprised…

This episode will rock the world’s socks…
