POP CULTURE: Jack and Bobby

OK, I admit it: I saw the ads for the WB series "Jack and Bobby," and when they described the premise, I thought, "maybe not my kind of show, but sounds like a cool idea." Kind of like "Joan of Arcadia," which I don't watch but which I seem to enjoy every time I catch 10 minutes of it flipping channels. Then they gave the show's title, and they lost me. Please, not another walk down faux-Kennedy memory lane. Even if the show's content has nothing to do with it, I'm just not buying something in that wrapping. Make it stop.

Funny how the “Teddy” character always seems to get neglected in projects like this…

I'll probably try to check it out, if only because its producer, Thomas Schlamme, helped create The West Wing. I saw him when he spoke at UT a few months ago, and he mentioned this project. It's an intriguing concept, so I hope it makes it into syndication eventually, as I have a difficult time keeping up with weekly primetime TV.
