    I only saw one episode, and Wendell and Vinnie were RARELY even shown! Thank god this show was replaced by Sanjay and Craig!

    When I initially saw the promos for this show, I expected another kiddie show riddled with corny jokes, dry humor, and strained comedy in general. However, after watching this show, I'm actually rather enamored with it. It's a step up for nick in terms of realism and maturity, which in all honesty can be appreciated. This show can be watched by those of all ages, in my opinion, so long as they don't mind a bit of language . "hell" and "damn"). The more mature jokes seem to be subtle enough for younger audiences, and there's enough childish humor to keep their interest.moreless

    i couldn't wait for this show to come out. i have been waiting for it last december and now it seems like a success! i like the humor and the plot to it. i love it. the only thing i don't like about it is that is for teens and adults. i expected this to be a show for 7 year olds. i just don't think that it is as kid friendly as it is. but either than that, it is a great show.moreless

    it appears many ppl like this show and i won't blame them. i kinda like it too. it's probably nick's best current live-action show. but uh.. what to say. well one problem to point out.



    the laugh track: DAMN, this thing is overused! just about all of the jokes, especially the weak ones get a laugh track that sounds as if a barn of chickens were gobbling for food. i think if they either a) make a bit stronger jokes (like Drake and Josh) or b) cool it with the laugh track, i could give this show maybe a 7 1/2. that's one simple thing to tackle but don't get me wrong, there r other shows that overuse laugh tracks like True Jackson and Bucket and Skinner. it kind of gets annoying when they play the laugh track and it seems as if they're expecting you to laugh. some of the jokes r pretty decent though, unlike the rest of nick.



    one more problem is some of the characters seem a bit unrealistic (3 in general): Wilma, Wendell, and Wendell's friend Lucy. Wilma can be funny but a lot of the times her role seems to be over exaggerated (might just be bad acting). ik Wendell is the smart one but like Wilma, his role seems to be exaggerated. heck he memorizes all digits in pi! i'm not saying wendell's a bad character though. another character is Lucy. idk what it is but something about her pisses me off. it might be that she can be sensitive too much, idk :l



    besides a few problems like those the show seems fairly decent like Vinnie is a good character and he's the most important so that's great. (i still think a simple factor like the laugh track is the biggest concern/ annoyance to me but this show is okay!) original!

  • Better than what you'd typically expect from Nick!

    After Marvin Marvin, I had pretty much lost hope in Nick. But that was before the release of this show. This show is actually really funny. Yes, there's some occasional swearing and dirty jokes, but you have to remember, this show is rated TV-PG. That means that it's not for little kids. I'd say this show is okay for anyone 12 and up. The worst thing I've heard on it so far is "d-bag," and they kind of covered it up by making Wendell think they meant "dumb



    But seriously, this show is good. I've seen every episode so far, and my favorite is the one where Wendell becomes a Yankees fan. I'm a Red Sox fan myself (which means I HATE the Yankees), so I loved it when Vinnie threw the hotdog at him and said



    Give this show a chance. It's the best thing on Nick in my opinion.moreless
