One of the funniest shows I've seen for awhile. Watched the first episode and I'm hooked for the duration. Sometimes "fiction" takes on a reality of its own!!! (If you get my drift.)

Ok. I'll fess up. I'm a political junkie. And a huge John Goodman fan.

And Alpha House feeds that beast.

Very well done - there are layers to this. Watch the staffers. Entire cast plays off of each other - wonderfully. The obsession with the mobile phones. Bill Murray and Colbert cameos.

I did not see that Gary Trudeau (Doonesbury fame) wrote/created this until the end credits. But yay for that.

This show has legs, and I want to see more of it. Highly recommended.

I hope this is a sign of things to come from Amazon Video. Very funny, great casting, and wonderful writing. Hope there is another season soon!

This show is great... it's only barely political which keeps it funny for everyone without being too overly insulting but edgy enough to show the faults our politicians have. It's funny, well cast and a show I hope to see stay. Very good job.

I love this show. Like another reviewer said, who knew there would be a good show about Republicans? The cast is great! Goodman and Malloy of course, and of the female talent, Sedaris, White, Sykes and Nixon are my favorites. The story lines and the characters are engaging. And, OK, living in Duke/UNC country during our current political climate some of the references in Goodman's story line obviously hit home.

I think this is the first amazon original series I've watched. Great quality programming. I look forward to seeing more of it.

Great job by Gary Trudeau.

Finally a show that makes politics more accessible by removing the "smoke and mirrors" people have about it these days. Although this show obviously puts a comedic twist to the life of a senator, it's still nice to get some political knowledge from it, especially the "social aspect" of how Senators are just like everyone else, only difference is his/her job. This show is going to BLOW UP and I'm thinkin it'll be the next "Office" with fan's quoting funny scenarios and dialogues.

The satire is gentle, pointing out human foibles, not real venality. I wanted each of the senators to succeed--and I am a Democrat.

These actors do a stellar job at representing 5 very different Republican Senators, each with their own "issues", both personal and political. We also experience the foibles of their staff, all quite funny. Regardless of your political leanings, you'll enjoy this humor, and if you follow DC politics at all, this will be a sure hit.
