Storyline

Jerry Trainor returns to portray a character not of, but similar to, Spencer Shay. Instead he plays Vinnie, the eccentric owner of a pop culture memorabilia store in Los Angeles, whose breaks are spent only reading comics and playing video games. Soon, his 12-year old nephew, Wendell, pays him a visit. From that moment forward, Vinnie's life is turned upside down: he assumes legal guardianship over Wendell. Wendell is wise-beyond-his-years, while Vinnie is clueless, but with the help of his sister (Wilma, a frightening personal injury attorney), the girl next door (Taryn, a newly-divorced Texan girl of Vinnie's dreams) and Wendell himself, he finally gets the hang of it and does whatever he can to make a fine father. On the other hand, Wendell might just be the parent Vinnie needs! Written by Raymond A. Waldrop

Awesome.
2 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this comedy is very good. Usually Nickelodeon shows have dried out humor or terrible jokes; like Marvin Marvin... But this one is very great and an addictive show. I hope it doesn't get canceled an keeps going. It's a very interesting comedy and very awesome. I look on my TV guide to see when the next episode is,it's so cool. But like I said, This is such a great show, not like those shows that are such a stinker. I don't like to talk about other shows while reviewing one, but just to give an example: New shows like Marvin Marvin have pretty bad jokes, and not much humor, also, Studio 10 is such a waste of time I can't believe that show interrupts SpongeBob. Sorry to criticize other shows on this review but... I just had to give examples.
