For farks sake, stop feeding the trolls. Ignore the nine people in the world that give a shiat about this and are also Nazis and make your crummy show

You have to ask why are they redoing the series? The original wasn't bad for what it was, but you know all the dialog will be sanitized of any humor whatsoever because...reasons.

The girl playing lead does look like she might be interesting if I still had a kid that age to watch it.

Because that's the state of the entertainment industry at the moment.

This.  To acknowledge them is to enable them.  Stop.

Remember, any show that isn't lead by a white male is an affront to the master race. To remake Charlie's Angels studios MUST cast three male Aryans as the angels.

I'm mostly just stuck on how they're now rebooting tween shows that I, a Millennial, was too old to appreciate the original of when it first aired.

So, as far as I can tell the issue is that Carley has the audacity of having a black friend/roommate.

There really is no hope for America is there.


BTW, Jennette McCurdy retired from acting and burnt some bridges in the process so odds that she was going to be in this was slim to none.

Sounds like they've already crossed the line into harassing cast members. They're more than just annoying trolls at this point.

Exactly, these are the same species of troll who went after Kelly Marie Tran and John Boyega for having the audacity to be cast in  Star Wars while not being caucasoid.

Most people that I saw complaining online were mad that Gibby isn't in it. He's making $$$ on The Goldbergs. Also McCurdy I thought I read somewhere wants to be a writer and also threw some subliminal message about Dan Schneider's um...activities as reasons to not act anymore.

The answer is Fark thread, and I still stand by that, ANYONE and EVERYONE responsible for Jar Jar should eat a bullet.

Hard disagree. Telling people to not call attention to racism allows the racism to continue.

I'll concede that you did not send it to him directly, so it's not the same.

Still, it is a curious amount of animosity towards an actor for just doing their job.

No Sam, no Gibby, no show!

It's basically like Laverne & Shirley when Shirley left and they tried to make Rhonda a thing!

We didn't ignore them.  We did the opposite of ignore them.

You guys are obsessed with Trump. Did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him. I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn't sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you. He's helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster, and now you're profiting off of him.

That's the thing, those people are almost never actual fans or the audience for the shiw they are brigading against.
It has all become part of the hate industry that's all over You Tube. Whole channels are dedicated to the "identity politics" "woke" Hollywood conspiracy led by the greatest monster to ever walk the earth: Kathleen Kennedy.

She's always had a weird mouth.

Yeah, for me, iCarly falls in that zone of Tween shows that I was way too old for, my son was way too young for, and I'm only tangentially aware of because I vaguely remember fast-forwarding through ads for it while my kid was watching DVRed Sponge Bob recordings. If someone had showed me the new one, I would have just assumed that was the original cast.

Finding out the show ended 9 years ago is a real "where the hell did all the time go?" moment.

Watched a lot of iCarly, oldest was the target demographic at the time.  It was not a bad show.  Don't understand a reboot though it was not that good either as kids shows go.

My kids were the right age for the show so I watched some of it.  It seems like the only returning actor is the big brother, that doesn't seem to have aged at all?  It's a new Carly, a new sidekick and supporting cast?  It doesn't really look like tweeners anymore.

For me the family cultural touchstone that I missed out on was Frozen. My kids were too old by the time that came along.

She's definitely had some knee rounding done.

I looked up all the actors.

Carly, Spencer, Freddie, Freddie's Mom, and 2 new actors are the main cast.

Nora and Nevel are returning as guest stars.

Sam retired from acting.  Nothing much has been said about Gibby.  Maybe he's too busy doing The Goldbergs.

There was 5 main people in the original.  Carly, her older brother, her best male friend, her best female friend, and gibby, the weird fat guy who always took his shirt off.

Carly, her older brother, and her best male friend are all returning.  Sam, the female friend, is Jeannette McCurdy and she quit acting.  I have not heard anything about Gibby, but I assume he's not returning either.

As a result, they got rid of the Sam character and replaced her with a new friend.  And they replaced Gibby by having a new character be the step daughter of the friend (Despite only being 28 apparently he has a 13 year old step daughter).

And yes, of course it's not tweens anymore... all the characters are OLDER.  That's what happens in the course of a decade.  They age.  Presumably they added that younger character so they still have a connection to that younger demographic.

I think the biggest thing wrong with the boomers is that they apparently love making generalizations about millions of people, diverse in everything but age, from articles that mention (but never actually cite) a few random tweets.

If they brought back most of the original cast, is it a reboot or a sequel? It sounds like a passing of the torch to the next generation type of thing, which would make any complaints about "recasting" pretty silly.

/yeah yeah, I could watch it and find out, but I'm still too old for this show. Even more so, really.
