Storyline

Faux documentary series from 2049 about Bobby McCallister, the US president elected eight years earlier, and his older brother Jack. Talking head interviews with Bobby's staff are combined with reenactment footage of the McCallisters' teenage years, dealing with a pot smoking mother and typical high school drama. Also explored is Jack's tentative romance with Courtney Benedict. Written by rmlohner

Quotes

Courtney Benedict: You let him clean the gutters.
Peter Benedict: He wanted to sweep the chimney. What do you want me to do? He thinks I saved his life.
Courtney Benedict: You could tell him you're even.
Peter Benedict: I tried to, last week, after he mopped the attic.
Courtney Benedict: Well, what did he say?
Peter Benedict: "I can never properly repay you, sir." It's like a bad Victorian novel. He'll get tired, eventually.
Courtney Benedict: You don't know Bobby.

Jack & Boby hailed by fans and critics alike as best new show!
1 January 2005 | by TheRealmPlayerSee all my reviews

Of all places to discover a dramatic gem, the WB! The show started out strong, with good casting and writing, a promising premise, and a few surprises. After just 11 episodes, (the balance of them to begin Jan. 26,2005), the show has developed an extremely loyal fan base, and even garnered a Golden Globe Nom., for Christine Lahti. TV Tome has placed it in their best new shows category. And reviews from Entertainment Weekly, to local newspapers have spread the joy, that this is a show not to miss.

My own experience agrees with the critics and fans. I have laughed, shed tears, and had my mouth open catching flys. To think that the suits at the WB had enough sense to make this series, almost makes me think they have enough sense to renew it for another season. If you want quality television, you need look no further than this fine new series!
