    There are so many worse shows that are on Nickelodeon that should of been cancelled a long time ago. But this show was actually funny in a not totally stupid childish way. They should really bring Wendell and Vinnie back, also the actors in the show are very talented.

    I honestly think this was a good show. From what i remember, there wasn’t stupid nonsense and gimmicks that insulted the audiences’ intelligence. I also thought that besides the comedy there were touching moments. But again there weren’t many episodes to really judge from.

    I am not a big fan of watching the remaining episodes of cancelled series. I mean why?
    The network did not find it necessary to renew the series, why should I finish watching it?
    Another reason / proof why network execs have less and less clues on how to operate. Do not ever cancel a show when there are episodes left! You just remove most reasons for ANYONE to invest any time in watching your station during that time period again.
    Note I have NEVER seen this show in particular, but this same statement could fit so many other shows / networks.
