I'm sorry, I love this show. A lot. And I'm 23.
15 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly can't understand why this show gets such poor reviews. It's become my favorite family sitcom in years and has me in stitches on a nightly basis. I'm really afraid of its lack of attention from Disney, though, and I don't really know what's to become of it. But I just want to state for the record that I love it, and here are my reasons why.

A lot of negative reviews have stated the show isn't realistic. Well, no, I don't think the life and times of the White House staff are as lightheartedly ridiculous, but let's look at the other popular Disney Channel shows of this ilk. Hannah Montana stars a girl doubling as an international pop sensation and a normal teenager, and NO ONE notices that they're the same person because of one terrible blonde wig. It's like not realizing Clark Kent is Superman because he wears glasses. Or That's So Raven, where the protagonist is psychic. Or the... Suite Lifeof Zack and Cody... On Deck. Yes, let's all go to school on a cruise ship. (For the record, I love Hannah Montana and enjoy That's So Raven. I could live without Zack and Cody, though.) So it's not really a valid argument to say the White House shtick is unrealistic. Of course it's unrealistic, as are most of the situations the gang gets themselves into. It's called absurdist humor. Maybe those in my generation are better with humor of this kind because we grew up watching trippy stuff like the Adventures of Pete and Pete. Now THAT was unrealistic.

I find the characters to be really strong. Cory is what's known as an anti-hero. His money-making rackets get him into a lot of misadventures and he has to scheme his way out of them (or just get caught and punished, as what often happens). But, as in most sitcoms, it's not the protagonist that makes the show but the cast of supporting characters. That's where I feel this show really shines. I love the dynamic of Cory, Meena and Newt. Meena's an exotic, strong female lead, with the added hilarity of a kooky ethnic background. (Everyone has that one friend with the bizarre foreign cultural background, that's the beauty of America!) Newt is my FAVORITE with his blonde emo locks. I agree that he has great comedic timing and, but the best part about him is the care the writers of the show take to give him depth. He could just be the stereotypical stupid best friend, but every so often you catch these glimpses of brilliance that suggest he's really just got a brain that goes entirely too fast for the rest of him (and everyone else for that matter).

In terms of other secondary characters, I like Sophie and her feisty cuteness -- she's got a mean streak but she often shows remorse or learns her own lessons, making her more likable than the same "evil little kid" archetype that appears in other shows. (Rico in Hannah Montana, anyone? Ugh.) I love the President, Cory's dad, and Samantha as the "adult" presence on the show, although I do kind of wish the writers would acknowledge that Victor and Cory's mom are clearly separated and he can hook up with Sam. (Weirdest yet most endearing pairing ever?! But this is the Disney Channel, so I doubt it'll happen...) All in all, this is a fun and hilarious romp in a what-if scenario envisioning a nation that is a lot happier with their leader than we currently are. I really hope Disney decides to give it the attention it deserves. (Or at least that Jason Dolley keeps appearing in things, because he's a very talented little cutie...)
