iCan’t believe I like this show….

iCarly on Nickelodeon; produced by Viacom.

iAdmit I am an iCarly fan.  I encourage my kids to watch it, even when they aren’t totally in the mood for it, because I like it.  Carly and Sam are best friends.  Along with neighbor and classmate, Freddy, they produce an internet show, iCarly.  Along with Carly’s brother Spencer, the group gets into slapstick situations that are reminiscent of I Love Lucy but with teen and technology twists.

I like this show because although there are no parental units (I don’t count Freddy’s mom, Mrs. Benson, because she is so cartoonish), Spencer acts as the moral compass and more often than not, Carly makes the right choices as well.  It’s nice to see nice kids acting silly but not acting out against authority.

The companion website, www.icarly.com, ties in to the show with video, games, polls and bio information.  I’d use the Web presence to help teach information literacy.  Overall, the show and website offer entertainment the whole family can enjoy together.
