The New Amazon Originals Pilots Reviewed in 10 Words or Less

Alpha House

Stars: John Goodman, Clark Johnson, Matt Malloy, Mark Consuelos
Plot Synopsis: A bunch of bumbling Republican sentaors share a house together in D.C.-shenanigans ensue.
The Review: Broad jokes about Republicans aren't as funny as real life.
So, Should You Watch?: Sure, if only to see what an Amazon Original looks like with some money and talent involved. Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau helms this one, and though it looks polished and boasts real actors, the jokes are inert, easy potshots at Republican nimrods. It lacks the complexity of Veep. But it's got a Bill Murray cameo. So there's that.
