One of the best shows on Nickelodeon created by Dan Schneider
, second only to Drake & Josh
. Unlike iCarly
, the acting is actually pretty good, and some of the actors have even been on Broadway, and unlike Zoey 101
, the script is much more realistic, and they have problems other than getting a guy to like them or increasing their popularity.
The show is about a girl named Tori Vega who atends a preforming arts school, along with her sister Trina, her friends Andre, Robbie, Cat, Beck, and Beck's girlfriend Jade, who at first hated Tori, but then eventually becomes her friend.
Despite the fact that they attend a preforming arts school, as the series progresses, it focuses less on "living their dreams" and more on the character's normal teenage problems. For example, Jade can be occasionally insecure when it comes to Beck hanging out with other girls, like in the episode "Jade Dumps Beck", where Jade breaks up with Beck due to her jealousy of him hanging out with a celebrity named Alyssa Vaughn, or in "Wi-Fi in the Sky", where Jade becomes upset, when she learns that Beck is doing a favor for his cheerleader next door neighbor. It is the only show on Nickelodeon currently that deals with real problems of real teens, instead of, "OMG, our webshow doesn't get enough views!" (iCarly) or "I'm a douchebag pop singer who isn't famous enough, whatever will I do?" (Big Time Rush
*turns on Nickelodeon* "Dang it, Big Time Rush is on, I wanted to watch Victorious!"
