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

Best nick show since Drake and Josh
22 October 2013 | by claypelisSee all my reviews

Since I was a child, I have always enjoyed Nickelodeon. But after Drake and Josh ended, I have always preferred Disney Channel. However, this show gave me a reason to tune in to my childhood channel. I thought this show was really funny and its a shame its now cancelled. People believe this may have been due to its humour content which apparently inappropriate to kids. I must agree as it does contain some adult jokes. However, I believe the show was still not worthy of cancelling due to this reason. Can't have nickelodeon just sold the show to a different channel like Comedy Central? I mean its such a shame! This show could have been a big hit like The inbetweeners(UK) or Two and a Half Men. :/
