Family sitcoms are a somewhat fossilized medium these days, and the U.S. networks really need to keep pulling bigger and bigger rabbits out of the hat if they’re going to impress a literate audience anymore. This latest attempt to breathe life into the family sitcom goes right to the top – to the family that occupies the White House. And guess what? They’re just as wobbly and dysfunctional as the rest of us. The prez (Bill Pullman) is on his second marriage (to Jenna Elfman) – shock, horror! – and bumbling eldest son Skip (Josh Gad) can’t stop accidentally setting things on fire. The only thing harder than being head of state, as the tagline goes, is being head of the family. Cue the cute factor.
