Jack & Bobby

Thommas Schlamme and Greg Berlanti. That's all that really needs to be said. 

Jack & Bobby (the WB's only really heartbreaking cancellation decision) was a show of epic proportions. It somehow managed to be a real political show, reflective of Thommas Schlamme's great work on The West Wing, while also simultaneously being a heartfelt family drama and a fun teen show, like Greg Berlanti's masterpiece Everwood

Christine Lahti (Schlamme's real life wife) was sublime as Grace, the liberal intellectual whose 2 extraordinary sons would change American history forever. 

Whether you are politically minded or not, you should watch Jack & Bobby on, it's a television revelation.
