* Tropers/MightyMewtron: While I think the Seddie arc is the worst thing this show ever did, one episode that really bugs me is ''iHire an Idiot.'' Carly and Sam hire a attractive but [[TooDumbToLive painfully stupid]] intern who does damage to the show like spilling lemonade on Freddie's laptop during a broadcast. Personally I find jokes about painful stupidity unfunny, but YMMV. What I don't like is how the girls refuse to fire him because he's really hot, only complying because Freddie hires an equally stupid female intern and they want ''her'' fired. [[spoiler:The female intern, however, turns out to be ObfuscatingStupidity to help Freddie convince the girls to fire the male intern.]] Carly and Sam can be boy crazy at times, but this paints them as superficial hypocrites who sacrifice the quality of their show just to look at hot guys. It almost comes across as sexist.

** Tropers/MightyMewtron: The reason this episode was a DMOS for me as well was because of how it switches the show over to a pathetic shipping arc for several episodes. This wouldn't be so bad on its own, but wait a minute...didn't ''iStart A Fan War'' deliver the message that [[{{Hypocrite}} this show was supposed to be about comedy and not shipping?]]

* Tropers/{{Monkeyfightclub}}: This Troper isn't too fond of iCarly. [[PeripheryHatedom Maybe it's because I'm not part of the intended audience.]] But ''iGo to Japan'' grinds my gears. There were lots of unfunny jokes, teenagers and grown adults yelling there and there. Some [[FridgeLogic nitpicks]], like [[YouFailGeographyForever deserts being in Japan]], and a left-handed Toyota (Scion) in Japan. They portray [[UnfortunateImplications Asians as idiots (again.)]], and this troper is perplexed as why are these in-universe webshows nominated? The nominees for best comedy webshow include a popular webshow hosted by teenage girls who are usually [[NoIndoorVoice yelling]] and doing stupid stuff, a poorly done [[WidgetSeries Widget]] show involving Siamese twins and oversized hands, and a FrenchJerk with a puppet dog. The [[DarthWiki.WallBanger Wall Banger]] moment in question? The iCarly gang has to explain situation to the Japanese guards so they would let them in the award show. They do it by playing charades. Not only do they make themselves and the guards look like idiots, but the guards bought all what they're saying. Freddie hacks the screen system, and puts the whole moment on screen. The audience thinks it's funny, and iCarly is given the best comedy webshow award. The guards arrest the Japanese twins for their crime. That's a DeusExMachina if I ever saw one.

''Series/{{iCarly}}'' makes its name in ComedicSociopathy, characters being [[{{JerkAss}} Jerkasses]], multiple moments of KickTheDog and GettingCrapPastTheRadar. However, it can only go so far before it begins annoying or offending people for [[DarthWiki/WallBanger the]] [[DudeNotFunny wrong]] [[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck reason]].

For smaller moments, or a piece of minor development or plot that isn't quite a DMOS, go to the [[WallBangers/ICarly iCarly Wall Bangers]] page which can have multiple entries added without being signed.

* [=FromtheWordsofBR=]: "iSpace Out". I actually find this show to be a guilty pleasure, but this episode was just horrible. In this episode, the ''[=iCarly=]'' team gets invited to a competition against another webshow, ''Exercise Rox''. The winner of the competition gets to do a webshow [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]] But, before they can do that, they have to do tests to see if they withstand the basics of space travel. All goes well...until they have to do the space pod test. That's when Carly, Sam and Freddie start getting SpaceMadness, but Carly manages to make Sam and Freddie look tame. At this point, she develops claustrophobia and can't take it anymore, and [[spoiler:breaks the window of the pod to escape from it, thus disqualifying the ''[=iCarly=]'' team in the competition.]] [[spoiler:This ending]] is especially horrible because the hype for this episode was built around ''[=iCarly=]'' doing a webshow in space! Talk about about a [[spoiler:ShaggyDogStory]]!

* Tropers/{{TheFarmboy}}: "iSell Penny Tees." Sam is running an underground sweatshop with ten-year-olds to make the shirts, and Carly and Freddy don't do anything to stop her; they only take half the kids and put them to work their own way. Now if this was Neville or some other antagonist, this would be [[MoralEventHorizon crossing the line,]] but when [[DesignatedHero Sam]] does it, [[DudeNotFunny it's supposed to be funny?]] At least she gets a form of [[LaserGuidedKarma Laser-Guided Karma]] at the end of the episode where the kids steal the Penny Tees business idea. The gang does apologize for their actions, but still...

* Tropers/{{TheFarmboy}}: Personally I found the show [[SoOkayItsAverage so-so]], but I would like to address "iSell Penny Tees." This episode has it where Sam is was running an underground sweatshop with ten-year-olds to make a bunch of fourth graders as laborers. Now, she has done plenty of awful things before and after this episode (like beating Freddie with a tennis racket over his opinion on Fred and the shirts, and former refusing to apologize for the latter's overreaction.) Now, let's compare Sam to someone like Neville. When Neville made a little girl cry, this was treated in-universe as a MoralEventHorizon by ''everybody'' he had come to contact with. Yet when Sam runs this highly illegal business, no one had thought of handing her over to the authorities. Like Carly and Freddy don't do anything to stop her; Freddie only took half of the children with her, but they only take half didn't shut down the kids and put them to work business. And not one of the children had ratted out on Sam during their own way. Now if time before finally leaving her. Sam had always been a complete asshole, but this was Neville or some other antagonist, this would be [[MoralEventHorizon crossing the line,]] but when [[DesignatedHero Sam]] does it, [[DudeNotFunny it's supposed to be funny?]] At least she gets is a form of new low for her. The [[LaserGuidedKarma Laser-Guided Karma]] at the end only form of the episode where punishment]] Sam had gotten was when the kids steal had taken the Penny Tees business idea. The gang does apologize for their actions, but still...
themselves.

* Tropers/{{LLSmoothJ}}: ''iOMG'': I only watch this series occasionally and Carly's actions towards Freddie in ''iParty with Victorious'' was eye roll-worthy. But let's rewind back to ''iOMG''. I think we all know exactly what this is about. The fact that promos for the follow up episode implies that they start dating motivated me enough to add this entry. So you mean to tell me that after all the hell she put Freddie through, Sam Puckett, possibly the worst love interest and biggest JerkSue since [[LoveHina Naru freaking Narusegawa]], all of a sudden is in love with Freddie and now they're going to start dating? EsotericHappyEnding doesn't even begin to describe this, [[DomesticAbuse knowing where this is likely heading]], as I believe Freddie can do and deserves a lot better than Sam or her glorified enabler Carly.

** Tropers/{{CantNotLookAtThisSite}}: What always got me about this episode is the fact that in RealLife, Fred is pretty much the JustinBieber of the web comedy circuit: you either [[{{Fandom}} love him]], or you [[{{Hatedom}} spout vile insults about him at every opportunity]]. Why Fred (and Lucas Cruikshank) is depicted as an all-loved, wonderful, Chairman Mao-like cult of personality is beyond me. I mean, at least Freddie didn't say Fred should consider killing himself or other unpleasant things -- as many, many, many people on YouTube say every day. This episode is just vile. Of course, the pathetically unfunny video montage at the end doesn't help. Paddling pools, screaming, cabbages. It's something that would captivate the sense of humour of a six-year-old child (admittedly that's probably the target demographic for this show, but my point still stands). If anything, the montage at the end proves Freddie right, and that's pretty much the icing on this cake of total crap.
