I make no secret that I am a huge iCarly fan (and before that I was hooked on Drake & Josh) and have been for sometime. I had heard some talk that the First Lady Michelle Obama was supposed to make an appearance on there but had forgotten about it until I saw a clip recently and then realized it came on last night.
I had a chance to watch and I thought the episode was pretty good. The story basically centers around the fact that Carly’s dad is away in the military and her pals were trying to plan a way for the Dad to be there via a webcam set up. In going through the motions to get this high tech meeting set up ,somehow the First lady gets wind of it and shows up at iCarly’s door.
Some said the episode was alittle to serious and while it was more on the weighty side , keep in mind there was a message there and a thank you to our military families.
I have already seen various comments where people are bashing her appearance on the show and quite frankly what is the big damn deal? I am amazed at how in the political world one person does something and folks make no mention or reaction to it, yet when another does it all of a sudden everyone gets amnesia that it’s been done before and now this big negative deal is made out of it. In this case Michelle Obama is not the first to appear on a television show as I remember very well Nancy Reagan appearing on an episode of “Different Strokes”. Other first ladies have appeared on shows too. Frankly I think it’s pretty cool that we have a younger mom with school age kids (who if many of us gave a chance we could actually relate to just a bit) who is willing to appear on shows that many of our children watch.
As a military spouse any acknowledgement of our military and chance for the public to get an idea of what we endure on a daily basis gets a gold star from me.
Politics aside is it such a big deal that the “First Lady” appeared on iCarly?
