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

User Reviews

 
Overrated by some, just like Sanjay and Craig.
4 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show, like Sanjay and Craig, is both new and bad. It's COMPLETELY cheesy, corny, contrived, tried, familiar, get the gist? Do NOT let kids watch it just because it LOOKS LIKE a spin off of iCarly. It's not. Not at all. Jerry Trainer being in both shows is the only thing they share, besides being on Nick and having laugh tracks. Why this and Robot and Monster both get a rating of 6.9, while Gordy and the Teletubbies get 3.4 and 2.9 respectively, is something I will never understand. Why some people have already said to have liked or even LOVED this show and/or Sanjay and Craig, I will never know. This show and Sanjay and Craig have both gotta go. This show's rating should switch with Teletubbies, and Robot and Monster should stitch with Gordy. End of story.
