So it's been a little over a month since iCarly ended. iGoodbye was a mixed bag, to be sure. I loved the Sam/Spencer/motorcycle B-story, the Freddie/Gibby C-story was preictably lame, but I really didn;t expect much else. I was surprisingly satisfied with carly's A-story, and this comeing from a fan who has always felt Carly was a likable, if boring character. All the shipping garbage was just that, garbage.

I personally can see where some people are coming from with complaints of how annoying Sam & Freddie were in iDS&F. But, I think back to my relatinships, and my friends' relationships (especially in high school), EVERYONE is annoying at the beginning of a relationship.
