Jack and BobbyJack and Bobby was a one season wonder on the WB network, with critical acclaim but a quick cancellation. It’s the story of the McCallister brothers (Jack and Bobby), in their teenage years in Missouri, told in flashbacks after Bobby became President of the United States in the year 2041. Christine Lahti (Chicago Hope) played Grace, their quirky and very smart single mom.

Other than the device of showing the teen years of a future president, the show was really like just about any other high school drama. It makes this list because of one episode:

115 Time Out of Life 
Air date: February 16, 2005
Bobby (Logan Lerman, Percy Jackson & the Olympians) steals a porn dvd from a video store and invites the cool kids over to see it to increase his popularity. Unfortunately, he only gets the case, rather than the dvd itself, sinking his popularity even more. The kids all get snowed in at the house.

Meanwhile, Grace gets caught kissing her male graduate student, and Jack (Matt Long) and his friends get stuck in the storm at a diner when the lights go out. The kids decide to pass the time by playing truth or dare. Courtney (Jessica Paré, Lost and Delirious, Stardom) and Katie (Kate Mara, Nip/Tuck) accept the dare to kiss. (AB)
