Hearing James lost cash in the laundry, substitute big brother Mike advises him to invest properly and suggests his broker Parker. James insists to stake all on an unknown dot.com stock. Mike thinks it best to ignore that, but is rose sky-high. While still ignorant James spends his inexistent winnings, Mike's attempts to win $300,000 with Parker prove disastrous. Paul's dodgy methods result in the mayor's action figure having more then inadequate anatomical proportions. Nicky is bombarded with questions about sex with Mike, especially from Stuart and Carter.

Mike is going to teach James a lesson in investing.
13 January 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

In this episode, James wants Mike to help him start having some kind of savings. He brings all his money to Mike and asks him to invest the money. Mike is thinking about a mutual fund but James said he heard about some internet stock that has the same name as his childhood dog. He wants Mike to invest in that internet company.

Mike believes its a failed investment and is going to teach James a lesson. Mike does not invest the money. But when the stock goes off the charts, James think he is rich. Little does he know that Mike still has his money in his desk.

In another story that turned out to be humorous, Mayor Winston is going to introduce an action figure of himself. Paul is getting all the details worked out and in no time the figures are hitting the streets. The problem with the action figures is that it appears the maker had the doll anatomically correct. Or some would say, Larger than life.

A nice little episode that was entertaining from beginning to end. There are many sight gags in this episode that make the show even better than predicted. With an interesting script and some fine acting this episode turned out to be exciting. Good watch.
