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

Messing up Jerry trainor's reputation on Nickelodeon
2 September 2013 | by Pintadgl26See all my reviews

I'm not saying this show is awful, but I don't like what it's doing with Jerry Trainor on Nickelodeon. The show is taking away Jerry trainor's popularity on iCarly as a funny, goofy, and creative guy who doesn't curse or drink alcohol. I don't like how they are trying to take away Jerry Trainor's cuteness by making him star on some adult show on Nickelodeon. I read that the show was cancelled. I'm just glad I don't have to hear Jerry Trainor say another curse word again. They need to understand what people think of Jerry Trainor when they watch him on Nickelodeon. They better keep him the way he is: not cursing or seen drinking alcohol.
