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

One of Nickelodeon's worst decisions
17 September 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Like a lot of the other people that have reviewed this, I was excited to see Jerry Trainor in a new TV show but I could only watch about 10 minutes of this before getting sick of it.

It's a definite step up from some of the other crap like Marvin Marvin and the Fred Show which seemed to have lasted about a month because of how plain terrible they were. I get that the shows are made for pre-teens and not for 20 year old males like me but putting Lucas Cruikshank in a TV show is just a bad idea but I digress, it's not the worst TV show to ever come from Nickelodeon but it's nowhere near the best.
