What is it?

The 2012 American single-camera sitcom television show 1600 Penn (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this television show:

A U.S. president, his wife and their four kids are followed in this short-lived NBC comedy series that chronicled the ups and downs of family life in the White House.

The first and only season saw President Dale Gilchrist (Bill Pullman) and First Lady Emily Nash Gilchrist (Jenna Elfman) welcoming their eldest son Skip (Josh Gad) back to the family fold after Skip has a very bad public mishap, while daughter Becca (Martha MacIsaac) deals with an unexpected pregnancy.

Subsequent episodes found the Gilchrist clan navigating both political and personal obstacles, all the while dealing with many visitors and foreign dignitaries frequently causing havoc in the White House.

Larry King guest-starred as himself in the series finale.

This was Pullman’s second turn as Commander-in-Chief, the first being the blockbuster film “Independence Day.”

Final Thoughts

I saw this television show years ago after maybe seeing a commercial for it, I did not expect to like it at all because the trailer for it looked too goofy, but to my surprise the show was possibly better than I had expected and I think that I ended up somewhat liking it maybe.

I possibly wanted this show to continue a bit longer, I could be wrong though, but it was cancelled after only one season.

The end,
