Episodes would typically feature some problem of Tim’s, either as the A Plot or B Plot, and him trying to deal with it in his own stereotypically macho way, and then have to seek out the help of his extremely well-spoken, well-traveled, well-read neighbor Wilson Wilson, whose face was never seen in full Tim would then try to relate Wilson’s advice, mangle it badly , and finally put the advice and his viewpoint into understandable words of his own.
