Dan Schneider goes slightly more over the top than "Monty Python's Flying Circus."
22 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The cast and crew of Victorious promised us this would be the craziest episode ever, and they kept their promise.

Tori comes into one of Sikowitz's classes trying to play what she thinks is a creative practical joke, but nobody seems to give a rat's ass. Meanwhile, a whole bunch of weird stuff starts happening around her, and though the official title description claims she doesn't notice any of it, there are too many instances where she actively participates in it.

Regarding the Wizard of Oz parody: It's Ariana Grande, not Victoria Justice who sounds like Judy Garland, which means Jade's alleged imitations of Tori are not supposed to be that of the former Gumm sister. Grande is dressed exactly like Garland, Justice's costume is slightly toned-down from Billie Burke, and Gillies is scarier-looking than Maraget Hamilton. But it's still played for laughs, as it has to be. "Oh my. She spoke her stage directions." Yeah, so did you, Cat. Of course, we never find out if "Dorothy" goes home, because an actual crew member of the show calls Leon Thomas onto another set. But will an impending disaster become the catalyst for love for Tori, and of all people Robbie? Or is it a false alarm?

There's a certain group of fans that would love an interaction between Jade and Tori in the hallways. I have a feeling that scene was written primarily for them. In the parody of the 1970's adaptation of "Match Game," the girls look better, especially Liz Gillies. And holy fleurging schmit; Daniella Monet actually CAN sing! Not that I didn't already know this earlier, but if this were a normal episode of Victorious, the entire main cast as well as the supporting cast would be scrambling to stop Trina from joining the chorus.

Sadly, a lot of fans of the show didn't like this episode at first, because it was a little too weird and unconventional for them. Thankfully though, many in that group has warmed up to it and learned to appreciate it. I on the other hand thought it was that very weirdness that made it so great from the very beginning. Maybe it's my familiarity with far-fetched Britcoms like "Monty Python's Flying Circus," and "The Young Ones" that has something to do with my enjoyment. I'm not so sure of that, but it was still a hilarious episode.
