#Giveaway and Review of iCarly: The Complete 3rd Season

iCarly: The Complete 3rd Season I am pleased to have been able to get a sneak peak review of iCarly: The Complete 3rd Season with my daughter and share some memories of when iCarly was one of her favorite shows... I am also pleased that I have a copy of iCarly: The Complete 3rd Season for one of my lucky readers!  iCarly: The Complete 3rd Season is going to be available everywhere on August 30th

Nickelodeon’s groundbreaking hit live-action series stars Miranda Cosgrove as Carly Shay, the host of an incredibly popular teen web show.  In 2010, iCarly was Nickelodeon's number-one show among K6-11, T9-14 and K2-11. Last year, more than 28 million total viewers tuned in to watch the hit series each week, including 10.2 million adults. Additionally, iCarly picked up two blimps at Nickelodeon’s 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards for “Favorite TV Show” and “Favorite TV Sidekick,” and Miranda was honored with a Common Sense Media award for iCarly’s positive, responsible use and portrayal of the internet.

iParty with Victorious
Carly suspects that her new boyfriend, Stephen, is cheating on her with Tori Vega, so the gang plans a trip to Los Angeles to catch him in the act at a party thrown by Andre at Kenan Thompson’s house.

My review:

When Robyn was younger, iCarly was one of her favorite shows and having had the chance to watch the iCarly: The Complete 3rd Season DVD set has reminded us both about why she liked it so much - the show is funny, touching and just a little campy - which makes for great rainy-day tv.  My favorite episode from this season, hands down, is iStart a Fan War, not just because funnyman Jack Black joins the cast as a guest star, but also because the cast really brings out the laughs...  If you have a tween, then you are probably already familiar with iCarly and you'll want to get this DVD set for your very own!
