1600 Penn is an American single camera television comedy series about a dysfunctional family living in the White House. The series stars Jenna Elfman and Bill Pullman. NBC placed a series order in May 2012.[1] The series premiered on December 17, 2012, and will make its regular time slot premiere on January 10, 2013.

I haven't heard a lot about this show, but the cast looks promising.

Did anyone see the pilot last night?

I saw about five minutes of the premier after The Voice and didn't think it was very funny, but didn't finish the rest, so who knows.

I watched it last night. While, it's not perfect, it's pretty damn funny, and about as decent as an NBC show can get... It starts off pretty funny, with the humor focusing around the sun, but has the standard cliche network added sappy parts that make you wanna shoot your television.

If I know you as well as I think I do (REALLY REALLY REALLY well) I'm pretty sure this show is right up your alley.

I thought it was pretty awful. The Skip character was unbearably annoying.

I don't think you know me that well, but why do you say that... does the show have some sort of political undertones that relate to conspiracies or something?

No no, just judging by the shows you seem to enjoy here in the entertainment forum. Nothing conspiracy related.

okay cool... I figured when you said "REALLY REALLY REALLY well" you were referring to my political views more so than my choice in TV shows...

Other than Veep, what shows would you compare this to?

Hahah no I was just making a joke seeing as I don't really know you at all. I've only seen the first episode and read the one next week, but I think it's fair to compare it to Modern Family or even Parks and Rec.... outside of the setting being the White House, it's basically a show about the family and the people connected to them. I don't know if that'll change as the episodes go on, but for now that's where I'd peg it.

I haven't even seen it yet and I already wouldn't compare it to Veep. Veep was great.

Or is great, rather.

Sounds decent enough. I like Modern Family, and I liked Parks, but stopped watching about a season and a half ago cuz I was working a lot...

The reviews I've read have been kinda hit or miss... most of the people who have had the opportunity to see multiple episodes have said that it gets funnier as it goes on... I'm gonna try to watch the pilot tonight

Veep was/is great... I don't see the similarities in the two shows other than it deals with goings on at the White House, but I've heard other people compare the two... but I in no way am expecting this to be even 1/10 of as good as Veep
