Storyline

A single-camera comedy about coming home again - when home is a comic book store in a suburban strip mall. Warring brothers Terry and Peter are forced to take over the reins of their father's failing comic book store after his untimely death. While Peter remained at home working alongside his father and emulating all of his nerdy ways, Terry escaped his youth as the high school punching bag and went to Harvard business school, never looking back. Now Terry must confront the family and friends he abandoned and the geek culture he has fought so hard to forget. The brothers try to put the past behind them, keep dad's dream alive and not kill each other in the process. Written by Anonymous

Paul Campbell and Ryan Belleville play brothers forced together after being left a comic book store. Paul is the supposed more capable one while Ryan plays the incompetent loser bro. Lauren Ash plays a worker in the clothing store next door. She's the traditional best friend character and is a stand out here.

The humor is hit and miss. There is some fun but especially this is a good fun brother relations. However it had the feeling of a good indie production. It lasted 8 episodes and I could have watched a few more but I doubt more than 1 season.

I think what's needed is to inject more references. I'm reminded of the great brit TV series Spaced where Simon Pegg burned all his Star Wars memorabilia after The Phantom Menace came out. That's what's needed here.
