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

This show is fantastic
29 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've watched every episode, and absolutely love it. I think it's a perfect addition to the Thursday night comedy lineup on NBC, and I've laughed heartily at every episode. I look forward to it every week and certainly hope it gets renewed.

I am genuinely confused by the middling reviews this show has gotten, and I'm especially perplexed by the hate directed toward Josh Gad, who not only creates the show but acts as its heart and soul as the well intentioned idiot Skip Gilchrist.

Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman are perfect together both as the president and first lady but also when the show features their private life as a regular old husband and wife (albeit with a little more power than average).

A lot of the show's strength comes from the love triangle between Martha McIssac (Becca) the very talented Andre Holland (Marshall) and the surprisingly likable Robbie Amell (D.B.). These three have great chemistry and comedic timing together.

Give the show a shot. It doesn't look like it'll be back for round 2, which is a shame, but these 13 episodes have been a blast.
