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

I think it has potential...
11 January 2013 | by faithfullyreserved101See all my reviews

Like the rest of you I was expecting more with such a great cast. Jokes were kind of bland and it was a bit chaotic. However, I believe the talent on the program is skilled enough to bring us through plot and character development, I think it's too soon to tell. The writers could probably use a pick me up. We're so use to comparing television shows to great successes of our generation, that we tend to approach new programs with a sense of cynicism.

I believe there's going to be some substance in all this. The Office's first half of their premier season was dumb as well. I think there's hope....willing to keep it on my DVR schedule to see what happens.
