Jenn - Do adults love kids shows? Well the answer to that question for me is yes. Well at least the ones I grew up with anyways. I grew up with "Rugrats", "Hey Arnold", and "Spongebob" (although I never really got into that on, but the two I want to talk about today, that I've recently rewatched and man I just love them, are "iCarly" and "Henry Danger".
Melanie - I love kids shows too - and not just the ones I watched when I was young although they have a special place in my heart. I love Wizards of Waverly Place, and I recently watched the new Worst Witch series on Netflix and loved it (up until they changed out the main actress), and of course the original Worst Witch movie (Muser Ashley Brilinksi did a guest piece on that last year which you can read here! Note the giveaway is long over!)
Jenn - Both shows I mentioned were originally on Nickelodeon and yes "iCarly" was rebooted on Paramount+, but honestly without Sam it just isn’t the same to me. I mean it’s not bad. It’s just not the same and yes, I’m older now also, but I’ve never liked when they reboot a show with one or more of the original cast is missing even though I respect the actresses choice regarding not wanting to return.
"iCarly" was about a group of school friends doing a popular web show. (Melanie - Greg and Em used to LOVE iCarly lol - GIBBY!) "Henry Danger" on the other hand is about a hero and his sidekick fighting crime. There is a spin off of that going on now called "Danger Force". I recently checked it out and I’m hooked.
Jenn - Why would I watch these shows, you say. Well sometimes I get tired of drama whether it be from a show or fandom and honestly kid shows don’t really have that, so it’s kind of refreshing plus the story of these three aren’t bad either. Also, its a piece of nostalgia. Going back to simpler time, and I think that's something we all need every now and then.
Melanie - I hear that! Sometimes the fandom drama is ridiculous. I will still watch kids shows if they catch my eye, and I love to go back and watch ones I grew up with too!
