I started watching iCarly Season Two Volume Three, and the first episode was about Sam’s twin sister Melanie. See, Freddy thinks they’re playing a trick on him and that Melanie is just Sam putting one over on him. Then there’s an iCarly award show where Spencer gets swimsuit models to help him out…then Freddy moves out of his house because of his overbearing insane mother…then Freddy saves Carly from a taco truck…then the gang competes to be the first web show in space…
Something about these episodes seemed…familiar…to me. I wonder why? Oh yeah – I’ve seen them all before! See, I watched the iSpace Out DVD. And the iSaved Your Life DVD. And the iFight Shelby Marx DVD. And many of those DVDs had the same episodes that I’m watching now! I have also seen the Season Two Volume One DVD. And the Season Two Volume Two DVD.
And now we get Season Two, Volume THREE? Seriously? There’s something about kids shows and their desire to gouge consumers as much as possible that really irritates me. It’s bad enough that shows for old people, like The Fugitive, get split into TWO volumes per season. Kids TV shows now come in three volumes, with a bunch of redundant special DVDs in between with the same episodes over and over.
That being said, I really do like iCarly. And I didn’t mind watching the same episodes again. And there are two “movies” (really double-episodes) on this volume that are good. All I’m saying, I suppose, is stay away from the single-disc specials if you’re going to buy the season volumes for your kids anyway. Cool?
