iCook Picspam Part 2

Did we all have a nice commercial break? I know I did! I went off to the kitchen and made myself a bowl of oatmeal. Don't hate! It's delicious. Time for Part Two of my utterly ridiculously overcapped epic iCook Picspam!

We start off easy, with a delightful HD cap of Ridgeway. Can I please get some fanart of the 3 iCarly kids sitting on the front steps of Ridgeway? Sam can be stealing Freddie's homework, Carly can be frantically studying and putting on lipgloss at the same time, Miss Briggs can be looking on disapprovingly. Get on it, fanartists!

Oh goddamn, Freddie's looking good today. Stop being a pedo, self! X|

Freddie heroically rescues Sam from her smoking and highly dangerous locker. (This is not out of any sense of chivalry. It's just that Carly would be really upset with him if she found out he let their pet psychopath fry.)

Freddie!brow. :D

"The smoke is coming from my... Gary Coleman Grill!"
Sam's locker is so dang wacky. Who the heck installs a pull-cord light in their locker, specifically to illuminate a portable grill?? Ah, delightful.

Freddie looks appropriately disbelieving and extra hot. We learn that Sam has eaten raw meat and gotten parasites from it! So there's that, plus the time she licked a swingset, and the time she puked from Missy's rancid chocolates... we finally know how Sam keeps so thin! She's accidentally bulimic! D: Oh noes!

I'm gonna be totally straight with you guys. I couldn't care less what Carly is saying. I took these caps because Freddie is looking really, really cute in them. It's the hair. And the eyebrows. And the shirt. And the Freddie-ness.

"He's not doing Food Fight anymore?!"
"He's not doing anything anymore!"

"What?! Why!?"
"What?! Why!?"

And now it is time for the Simultaneous Seddie Slap Scene.

:D :D :D :D :D
Why do they do this when they've jinxed each other?? I don't know, but I *do* know that it is AWESOME, and that I will probably write a fic about it, and that I love how Sam kinda breaks the 4th wall by accident, and how they just pretend like it never happened.
:D :D :D :D :D

Carly takes a moment to process what just happened. She totally thinking "how did Freddie slap her back without ending up stuffed inside a locker??"

Carly explains, after a moment's pause. "Ricky's so depressed that he lost to us, he says that he's giving up cooking forever."
"'snot our fault Ricky went psycho,"
Sam objects.
"Yeah but, come on, the least we can do is go talk to the guy." Freddie says, leaning nonchalantly against the lockers.
Sam arches an eyebrow, and calmly points out, "No, the least we can do is nothing."

See? I should totally get a job writing novel versions of iCarly episodes.

I LOLed like crazy at Sam stabbing her steak double-fisted like that.

"Y'know, there are more important things to life than free meat."
"Yeah... not really."

Sidenote: Carly's outfit is really fun today!

Apparently, Ricky Flame is local, the nice hostess/show producer lady has the keys to his place, and she's cool with leaving the kids alone with him in his...compromised state. I like her even more!

I like how super-masculine the decor of his bedroom is. It just screams "I AM A MANLY MAN WHO COOKS MANLY THINGS!" It kind of feels like a design-show decorating job. :P

Also, I know some people are totally into Freddie's brown jacket in the last scene of this episode, but I dunno, his jacket here... does things for me.

HAHAHHAHAA, Carly got whapped in the face with a pillow. "Unnecessary!"
Animated gif, please?

Freddie calmly suggests that Sam try to get Ricky out of bed the same way she does her mom.

"Get up ya lazy blob! There's a cop at the door and he's got a WARRANT!"
Good god, Sam's mom is the worst parent on a Nick show... ever.

Sam's attempt fails, we get a cute Creddie screencap with no personal space, and they haul him up into a sitting position.

So, I suffer from periodic depression, wherein I go all bed-bound and hermit-like and have, on occasion, gotten tissues stuck to my face. But I've never, in all my years of dealing with this crap, looks as pitiful and downtrodden as Ricky does in these caps, nor have I had a tissue so stuck to my face that it takes *two* flicks. He is the epitome of CRY MOAR.(Also check out Sam's face in that last cap. Wtf is she doing??)

"You just need to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air," suggests ever-chipper Carly. She pulls back the heavy curtains, to reveal Seattle in all its sodden glory, lighting crackling over the wet rooftops. "Oh Seattle."

See? Told you. Today's theme is "WE LIVE IN SEATTLE, TOTALLY NOT HOLLYWOOD."

I made this cap just for icons. I love the geometric pattern of those curtains, they are beautiful! I want them!

See? The fist thing.

Okay Carly does it too.

Sam is all *one two airpunch* and it's super cute.

"Come on now, take the knife. Everybody loves a big sharp knife! Yay! There we go! Wooooo!"
:D :D :D How many kids does it take to chop a Japanese cucumber? (I don't have a punchline, feel free to supply your own.)

Oh look! Somebody finally got him a bowl to cry in!

Meanwhile, Spencer is still at the Groovy Smoothie. Okay, so, we can assume that Spencer has spent every hour that the store is open, waiting for nug-nug. We can also assume that it has been at LEAST a couple of days since the kids beat Ricky Flame. (I didn't point out before, but Spencer let a television crew show up at his house and film the kids, unsupervised. ...Okay...) So basically, Spencer has been neglecting any current art jobs he has, as well as his own beloved baby sister, because of his vision. It'd better be worth it! (It is.)

It's closing time. We are made to feel great disappointment on Spencer's behalf. We know this because the audience goes "aaaaawwww." I wish they hadn't.

But wait! Nug-nug shows up! A classic "will they, won't they" scene ensues. I like that the night shift dude is appropriately skinny-nerd looking, so you believe that he would be super psyched to see Nug-nug.

"It's so weird!"
"I have this weird feeling, like, I'm sposed to... *hug* somebody."
"Hey Nugs, you were at that convention for too long."

Having attended many a nerd-con, it's true. Once you're around a bunch of freely hugging nerds, you start to lose a certain sense of personal space. This is why, after Penny Arcade Expo, I got extremely sick with Swine Flu. aergonaut, who doesn't like strangers touching him and considers human beings to all be walking germ-bags, attended the same convention and came out perfectly healthy. Obviously, I should have sneezed all over him.
*end tangent*

Omg, Spencer's back and his hair is really pretty and he looks so sad! Awww, and then he leaves! Oh no, you think!

But it's okay! As with this scene in any other sitcom in TV history, he comes back in at the last second:

And a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming ensues!



Hooray! Neglecting my family was totally worth it!

(Presumably) the next morning, Freddie shows up at the door and belittles Carly's PJs. D: :D

Then he insults her hair! What the heck, Fredrickson?!?!? I'm sorry, Freddie, but *some* people, unlike yourself, don't wake up with perfectly coifed, floofy, soft hair that you just want to run your fingers through and I-um... what was I saying?
Freddie's mean. Sam slapped it into him. I like it.

Carly can shut up about not being "all dolled up". She totally has makeup on, AND her PJs are adorable, and her hair looks better than mine does after a visit to the salon.


So, Ricky Lame looks terrifying on a webcam, and invites "my iCarly friends" to watch him be a winner at a mysterious athletics club that very noontime. Right away I was thinking to myself "oh god, this can't be good." I mean, the pace of this episode was so fast, I was expecting it to be over at the commercial break, when they won the taco food fight! How was this going to be resolved? iCarly almost never actually *deals* with the episodic characters' run-ins with the iCarly crew. (This is one of the main reasons I like this episode so much. I *despise* the cut-off endings.)

Oh yes. It's going to be resolved by wrestling small children. Oddly enough, this makes perfect sense to me. I've been watching iCarly for too long. I love how the kid on the left is trying to comfort the kid in the middle.

Oh my god, this is so wrong.

"Hoo chow!"
What *is* that??

The carefully selected multicultural parental bleachers do NOT approve.

Neither do the OT3. I love their posture.

Ricky explains that he's abusing the rules of the rec center to beat up little children. Awesome idea, Ricky! This cap should be 'shopped so it looks like the kids are reading illicit materials, obvy.

I *LOVE* this little kid. He's so scrumptious I just want to eat him up!

"Come on! This is ridiculous!"
Okay, Ricky was a douche before, but after humiliating The Most Adorable Little Wrestler, I want him to get an ass-whupping.

Instead, he pins Carly. Thank GOD he's wearing shorts over his wrestling singlet, you know?
"You're so weird!"
"No one can extinguish... THE FLAAAAME!"

Dude. Shave.

Ringleader of the Evil League of Evil Teenagers on the Evil Web, Carly Shay, tires of suffering indignity and sics her pet psychopath, Sam, on her intended target. Freddie approves.

This was a much more entertaining beatdown to watch than when Sam kicked Jocelyn's boulder-like butt. For one thing, it appears to all be Jennette and not a stunt double. For another, it's totally more deserving. By this point I was like "GET HIM, SAM!"

So were the parents. :D Yay! Let's support violence!

I know nothing about wrestling. Is this even legal?

Don't you love how completely nonplussed Carly and Freddie are while they watch Sam wrestle a full-grown man?

"Hah! You lost!"
"Eat it, Flame!"

And then they high-five. Hooray! I like to belittle adults when their fragile self-esteem has been shattered! I'm learning good lessons about morality from my favorite show, iCarly! :D


I see you've been working on your totally badass pose, iCarly team. Freddie looks so damn smug. And Carly's just like "Yeah, that's how we roll, whatevs."

Thanks Dan! You finally made another good episode! HOORAY!

Oh, yes, and of course, we get to see more fingers go into Freddie's assorted orifices. No personal space for you!

Thanks for reading my picspam. Thoughts?

YES! This is why I made so many of them! HOORAY!!!! *runs and hugs you*
Sep. 21st, 2009 07:13 pm (UTC)
i think i love more your comments of the episode, that the actual episode.
i hope you do this more often, or at lest the comments about the episode.
Sep. 21st, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
I'm going to agree.

And we've already discussed how I want to just make millions and millions of icons. Maybe I'll do that soon. Somehow.
Sep. 21st, 2009 09:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah! let's make a petition “Mizu’s review of iCarly episodes” Maybe not with PicSpam, just her review. Well, only if she wants of course.
Sep. 22nd, 2009 12:10 am (UTC)
Thanks dear. I just don't think that my "reviews" would be any good without the pictures. Anyway, my original purpose for making a picspam is so I have raw material for icons and graphics. If you take the caps out, you take out the original idea! Remove the pics from the picspam and all you have is... spam. :(
Sep. 22nd, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
well, i have read reviews like yours of something without pics, and boy, they are awesome (well, they were from a manga, but whatev)

i'm going to be happy if you like another episode so much that you'll be makeing a picspam, and since they are not going to be picspam for every episode. it will be "special" when you make one ;D
Sep. 22nd, 2009 12:33 am (UTC)
oh yeah! almost forget.
english is not my lenguage, sorry for my mistakes
Sep. 21st, 2009 08:53 pm (UTC)

I love oatmeal.

What is up with Freddie's out-of-place hair chunk? It bothered me.

I LOLed like crazy at Sam stabbing her steak double-fisted like that.
It totally looked like she was going to stab Freddie in the shoulder.

"Come on now, take the knife. Everybody loves a big sharp knife! Yay! There we go! Wooooo!"
Cutest thing all episode. That room scene was cozy as hell.

Nug-nug's theme music is wonderful.

"It's on, baby."

argh aaargh. I liked this episode.
Sep. 21st, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
ok, WHERE have I seen Sam and Freddie in those outfits before?? it's eating me alive, I can't place it! :(

anyway, you need to do this for every episode, ever- even the moments I don't like seem better with effing awesome comentary XD
Sep. 21st, 2009 09:41 pm (UTC)
totally didn't mean to reply above, clicked the wrong button XD

I used to picspam icarly episodes quite often.

But you see, when you make as many caps as I do, the whole process takes, honest to god, an ENTIRE DAY of time.

My doing such epic picspams really caused me to burn out on iCarly fandom. It got to be way too much. I know people love them, and I love that they encourage creativity and make people happy, but ugh. It's a full time sort of thing and I just don't have that level of endurance.
Sep. 22nd, 2009 12:00 am (UTC)
I have totally already made like ten icons just while going through this.

And there was something very, very wrong about Ricky Flame wrestling Carly. So, so wrong. :|
Sep. 22nd, 2009 01:03 am (UTC)
"It's the hair" He had just a little bit of hair hanging on his face, and it was just really shmexy. I love hot geeks.

"the audience goes "aaaaawwww." I wish they hadn't." But then how would I have known which emotion to feel? I CAN'T DECIDE THESE THINGS ON MY OWN.

Better watch out mentioning aergonaut, now that you two apparently have a shipper. :D

" The carefully selected multicultural parental bleachers do NOT approve." Oh Nickolodeon. You and your silly insistence on being PC.

"This was a much more entertaining beatdown to watch than when Sam kicked Jocelyn's boulder-like butt." Yeah, during that whole beat-down, I kept worrying Sam's dress would ride up. I didn't want poor Jennette to show any undies on tv. It got veeery close.

Freddie looks like he's about to be raped by Sam in the second to last cap. This amuses me.

As always, that was an amazing picspam. Thank you for entertaining me and taking pretty pictures.

Apparently they fabricate High Schools like they do houses, because this is one of the four basic high school models that are usually shown on television.

My our little Fredward has grown! It is very apparent in the caps for the face slap. Either Freddie didn't see her, or he's grown a set of cajones, because most people would run screaming if Sam double fisted a meat fork like that, especially after just getting away with slapping her. And Freddie? He leans nonchelantly against the lockers. Oh Freddie!

How fortuitous of Sam to suddenly decide to snuggle against Freddie, just moments before the pillow was launched at Carly, Hmmm! Was it just me, or did anyone else think that the way Freddie said "Your head's in the salad" was just pinch worthy cute. Actually him and Carly both were.

I loved the whole Spencer/Nug Nug scene here. It was so random, but so adorable. Your caps are well appreciated. And yay to ubreons for turning it into a gif.

So there are, like 7 kid wrestlers on the bench, and 478 parents in the stands (so I exaggerate, whoopdeedo!). Who are all these people? BTW,I'm kinda dumb sometimes...what is the OT3?
I love how Ricky holds the 2nd kid down with just his fingertips. That kid is freakin scrumptious!

I loved how Sam came back and assumed the Superhero Stance after she opened a can of whoopass on Ricky. Yep saving the world, One beat down at a time. All in a day's work!

I really like this last part. All three looked so cute (minus the finger up the nose). Too bad we won't get to see it past the opening weekend. Darn Nickelodeon for covering over these things with commercials!

...the first thing i thought when i saw ricky flame in his wrestling outfit? SHAVE. SHAVE SHAVE SHAVE. lol

and awww.. you and chris went to a convention! and had FUN. and you got sick, that's not fun... but chris is OK!!!! YAY! :D

and.. this episode should result in 8,712,0384 .gifs!

Also, hmm, i never thought about the icarly gange "acting" surprised! it does make sense tho.

And I do agree about the icarly post production team. They just win. At everything. Like.. do you remember the part where carly or sam tells freddie to put the camera back on them? They were all in frame + freddie's laptop. And you can SEE Freddie glance at them and see it in his laptop as well. They're just.. amazing.

I agree, too, that sam is punchy and jumpy! It's cuteness! Let every fic author make a mental note of their little quirks and mannerisms.

Continuation of said thoughts:

1) *g* Oh, you and your loving Freddie/Nathan ways. You shouldn't feel bad. (Because throughout that entire scene, all I could think was "Damn! He's getting older. This isn't good for me.") Also, with my favorite characters, I'll have favorite shirts that I want to appear. This plaid one? Is on my list.

2) While "Gary Coleman Grill" makes me think of D&J, it also brings thoughts of what a "Gary Coleman" infomercial would resemble. It's humorous.

3) I wonder how many times Freddie has seen Sam wake her mom up like this ... I worry about Sam's homelife.

4) And of course you enjoy big sharp knives Sam.

5) The Spug-Nug hug brought a giant smile to my face. Just look at how HAPPY they are! They were MEANT to hug!

6) Remember when I said that Freddie had a lot of odd expressions in this episode? Well, he does it again when he enters Carly's apartment. Look at how he's leaning against the doorway? I think he's been watching that episode of "Saved By the Bell" where Zack teaches Screech how to "BE" Zack.

7) Ricky Flame has a fetish with his armpits. That's why he created that motion. When he wins, he wants EVERYBODY to know what his armpits look like.

8) The caps of the trio at the wrestling match are telling me I need to make icons. They're begging me! Just look at them all disgusted at Ricky Flame ... and later all smug at his loss!

9) 2nd Wrestling Kid is SO adorable! (Yes, everybody in this episode is adorable.)

10) And did I mention how obvious it was that Sam would end up whipping Ricky Flame's ass in the end? If not, here ya go. (And really, I just needed a #10 to make everything seem complete.)
Sep. 22nd, 2009 03:56 am (UTC)
I really appreciate your desire for round numbers. :D
