The Gilchrists are just the average American family dealing with all the everyday issues – like a grown kid who's forced to move back home, children who are smarter than their teachers and a stepmom (Jenna Elfman, "Dharma and Greg") desperately trying to win over the kids. They're loving, fun and a little crazy. In other words, just like everybody else. With one exception: they live in a very special house. The White House! Whether it's entertaining foreign dignitaries, sneaking away for a night out, dealing with middle school crushes or putting out fires – figuratively and sometimes literally – there's never a dull moment in the Gilchrist White House. For example, the First Son (Josh Gad, star of Broadway sensation "The Book of Mormon") is one of the administration's biggest liabilities, but also the glue that holds this family together. The President (Bill Pullman, "Independence Day") knows too well that the only thing harder than being Head of State is being head of the family. Also starring are Martha MacIsaac ("Superbad"), Andre Holland ("Friends with Benefits"), Amara Miller ("The Descendants") and Benjamin Stockham ("Sons of Tucson").

Customer Reviews


Glad this episode was free. Certainly not worth $1.99. Reminds me of Tommy Boy.

It's a comedy… right?

Maybe Bill Pullman should have left his presidential aspirations at the end of "Independence Day, cause this White House "comedy" is not… what's the word… funny. Jenna Elfman is much better than this. And the rest of the cast just seems to be winking and saying "get it?". No, I don't.

I hope this show isn't what NBC is pinning it's comedy hopes on once "The Office" and "30 Rock" end later this season.

Funny family show

I don't feel like the negative reviews posted are being fair to the concept of the show. No, it's not The West Wing, but it's not meant to be. It shows that the First Family is in essence, just a family with embarassing relatives and fires to manage. Literal fires, in this case. If I had one criticism, it is that the pilot bring up too many story arcs for future shows.
