Alpha House (Amazon)
The most outrageous part about Alpha House, which focuses on four Republican senators sharing a house in D.C., is that it's based on a true story. Beyond that, Alpha House rarely shocks, but it doesn't need to. John Goodman, Mark Consuelos, Matt Malloy and Clark Johnson deliver a solidly polished comedy that manages to find fresh take on political TV. As opposed to House of Cards, Scandal or Veep, the performances and plots on Alpha House are fairly low-key, reflecting the more realistic sensibilities creator Garry Trudeau became known for with his Doonesbury comic strip with an added touch of absurdist satire. The all-star cameos don't hurt either. In only the first three episodes, Bill Murray, Cynthia Nixon, Wanda Sykes and Stephen Colbert all appear.
