ALPHA HOUSE AT AMAZON
The new series of political comedy videos ALPHA HOUSE, starring John Goodman and created by Garry Trudeau (from Doonesbury) for Amazon are very funny. Very very funny.
Some Senators, Democrat and Republican, are serious, intelligent, well-informed and valuable lawmakers. The Senators in Alpha House not so much.
Three (roughly) half-hour episodes are available on Amazon now, free to all. More episodes, coming once a week on Fridays will be available to subscribers of Amazon Prime. (Given the other benefits of Amazon Prime, this may be the tipping point to join.)
In addition to being very funny, the episodes are great to look at: expertly shot, acted and edited. It's terrific.
Note: Watch for Yara Martinez to break out from this show as a new young sexy very beautiful star.
UPDATE FEB13, 2014 -- I've watched the entire first season now. It is terrific. From the first show to the last, each episode is smart, interesting, and has sections that are absolutely hysterically funny. (Warning -- do not try to eat or drink while watching this show as food or liquid may spurt violently from your mouth (or worse) at some very very funny moment!)
