Futon’s First Look: “Vince Uncensored” (CBS)

Monday, May 30, 2011

✿ Vince Uncensored (CBS): (written by Phoef Sutton; directed by Kelsey Grammer; produced by David Kissinger and Conan O’Brien).

The plot in a nutshell: It’s been six months since contractor Vince (Michael Chiklis) had a brain aneurysm. His doctor, Neiman (Victor Garber, yes, that Victor Garber), has since given him a clean bill of health however with the damage to his frontal lobes, Vince finds he’s no longer able to censor his thoughts. In short: he says exactly what he thinks. The doc’s suggestion: count to three when he’s about to say something, giving his brain the extra time needed to properly filter it. Not surprisingly, said tactic doesn’t stop him from responding incorrectly to his wife Janet’s (Elizabeth Perkins) queries about her figure; giving bad advise to his hen-pecked business partner Nav (Maz Jobrani); spilling the beans to a prospective client about how much time and money his remodeling job will cost; or suggesting to his bickering parents (Paul Dooley, Georgia Engel), freshly kicked out of their retirement home, that they should get a divorce.

And those are just the problems he creates himself. Also on his plate: youngest daughter Rosie (Rachel G. Fox) has handcuffed herself to the banister in protest over having to now go to middle school and eldest Bryce (Marcella Lentz-Pope) has dropped out of college. Vince’s condition of course exacerbates the aforementioned fronts, most notably by calling Bryce a “whiny quitter.” Janet eventually reaches a breaking point, telling Vince these aren’t just random things he’s blurting out, they’re his true self coming out and that person is something of an ass. It’s enough to send Vince back to Dr. Neiman’s office hoping for a cure. Unfortunately, his hands are tied as any surgery could potentially make him a vegetable (“We’re not supposed to use the word vegetable anymore,” he quips. “But we’re friends.”). Nope, he’s stuck with being uncensored and his family is stuck with him.
