Storyline

President Gilcrest may be foremost the US head of state and government, his reassembled family complicates life in the White House considerably, often interfering with his image or even with matters of state. Eldest son Skip is as goofy as self-absorbed, his (step-)siblings are rather ambitious but socially awkward. Eldest daughter Becca's ruthless march to career is suddenly questionable when she has a fertile affair with irresistible 'simpleton' D.B. Written by KGF Vissers

Hmm
7 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not Satire or Comedy.....1600 Penn is part of the "Dumbing Down" of America. Skip is way over the top, no way would he would be allowed in the White House. Skip should not be played as slapstick comedy fool, but as a misguided Prep School Graduate that always says the wrong thing, at the wrong time. Skip can be a bit smarter..I suggest you give him a accident, send him to a clinic in Europe where he gets an education. Make 1600 Penn a true satire and you can have a "Water Cooler" show that viewers will enjoy. Sorry Josh Gad, please stay off camera, you're killing the show with your attempts at cutting humor. 1600 Penn once had promise on paper, get it together 1600 Penn Writing Staff. Interesting concept has lost its way, however it can be fixed with a few subtle changes, it's not too late. However unless corrected 1600 Penn will be doomed to go the way of so many other shows, which would be a shame for a talented cast.
