Flashback Friday-Television Edition-Jack and Bobby (2004-2005)

History, especially the personal history of our politicians, at least to me, is an interesting topic. What were these future politicians like when they were young and what events put them on the path to politics?

In the short-lived television series, Jack and Bobby (2004-2005), it is the year 2049, President Bobby McCallister had just completed his second term in office as President Of The United States. Commemorating his time as President, a documentary is released about President McCallister. Included in the documentary is footage of the President when he was a young man living with his older brother and single mother. Playing the McCallister family in past tense is Grace (Christine Lahti), Jack (Matt Long) and Bobby (Logan Lerman).

Jack and Bobby was a hybrid of The West Wing and The Wonder Years. While the concept of the was interesting, unfortunately, the concept did not meet reality.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
