Great cast, really enjoyable, watched all in a single sitting. John Goodman is especially on great form throughout the series.

Not really much of a reviewer, but I find it hits on similar notes to The Office and Parks and Recs in the sense of providing a comedy element to an otherwise serious job position.

Episodes are based around elections, gaining voters and political power plays, not the most fertile ground for a comedy series but considering the aforementioned paper sales company and government parks and recreations department that isn't really a problem.

Casting is pretty awesome and while most characters lack a detailed backstory, they are diverse enough to provide something positive to the show and didn't find myself hating that "one person".

Goodman's character is enjoyable to watch and Louis's occasional feminine and slightly stereotypical gay moments as they are portrayed in the show are pretty funny; him (minor spoiler) interviewing cleaning ladies with red wine stress tests comes to mind.

As someone who has grown up in England, I'm not sure on the realism/stereotyping regarding the accents but I found the stronger ones entertaining in small doses.

Call me biased towards anything with John Goodman but watched entire series in one night and forget to do uni work 5/5.

I refreshingly funny take on Washington. Every episode leaves you wanting more. Well cast and brilliantly written. A perfect mix of character development and humour.

Garry Trudeau and Amazon could well be on to a winner here. Alpha House is a great original comedy that pokes fun at the Republican party without ever getting too political, with water-tight writing and great performances - particularly from Clark Johnson as Robert Bettencourt – wrapping everything up in a hilarious sitcom, one of the best I’ve watched in recent memory.

I'm always up for a show that pokes fun at politicians. This has certain promise, even though I've only watched the pilot so far.

Very funny. Probably more realistic than "The West Wing"! Looking forward to the series. However, I think it's ridiculous that I must type in superfluous words before Amazon will let me submit my review. This is supposed to be entertainment!
