Storyline

To a kid, every weekend is precious, so each time the final bell rings Friday afternoon, Tino, Tish, Carver, and Lor try to make the most out of the short freedom they have. Tino Tonitini, the show's narrator, is an average sarcastic kid with a good heart and isn't afraid to tell his Mom about his life (actually she usually tricks him into telling her). Tish Katsufrakus comes from an old world family and loves art, music, and all the things her friends find dull. Carver is the athletic one with a shoe fetish. Finally, Lor McQuarrie is the tom-boy. Together, they play pool, eat pizza, and be kids in every sense of the word. Written by Max Vaughn

"The Weekenders" changed my life...
6 September 2002 | by mikec-19See all my reviews

I'm so happy to have discovered such a delightful little show. The characters are all very likeable (especially Tish!!), the scenario's are easy to follow, and it's very original. More shows should take hints from this one on how to be great programming. I hope to see more from this series, maybe a revival, or a movie (whether it's straight-to-video or nationwide at a theater). Seek this series on tv, it's certainly worth it.
